Better Call Saul

Since devoted readers are aware of THC's obsession with Breaking Bad, it should come as no surprise that he is eagerly awaiting the premiere of Better Call Saul on AMC this Sunday evening.  That's struggling lawyer Saul Goodman (played by Bob Odenkirk) on the right above.  Actually, Saul's real name is Jimmy McGill but he changed it for business reasons. It's a prequel, set several years before the time of Breaking Bad so there'll be no Walter White or Jesse Pinkman.  However, there is the marvelous Mike Ehrmantraut (left, above) played by Jonathan Banks who you may also remember from his many 1980s appearances in film and TV, including Beverly Hills Cop.

THC was a little dubious about the prospects for this spinoff but is encouraged by this review at Grantland.
