Thanks for pointing that out. I did not realize it was based on the Hieronymus Bosch book series. If the tv show is 75% as good as the books, it will be a keeper. I guess after the bomb with Alex Delaware movie, they went the tv series route.

Back to "Better Call Saul", best line so far: "You're the kind of lawyer guilty people hire".

I'm enjoying Better Call Saul. So nice to see Mike Ehrmantraut again and I love that the parking toll booth is under a freeway ramp. Jimmy's office/home in the back room of the nail salon was perfect!

Bob Odenkirk is a really good actor. He was in the Fargo TV series and I didn't recognize him until I saw the credits.

The idea of this being a prequel is very clever. He's going to reinvent himself into Saul Goodman and then has to do it again at the end of Breaking Bad.

Mike is a fun character. It was a hoot seeing Tuco again, too. I enjoyed the negotiating scene with Tuco and Saul. It has to be tough negotiating with a psychopath.

I'm liking the show just as I hoped I would. Seems to be the same writers and producers from BB. I would expect some of the dark twists and turns and ironic humor as well. I love the fact that it is starting pre-Saul and working forward instead of starting post Walter.

The series starts off with him (Gene) working at a Cinnabon in Nebraska. Will be interesting after Better Call Saul catches up to the start of Breaking Bad, if they carry on the Gene character from Nebraska.

Near the end of BB, Saul claimed the best case scenario for the trouble all around him was that he becomes the manager of a Cinnabon.

I forgot about that until I read an article (Rolling Stone at the dentists office) about Better Call Saul.

'Better Call Saul': The Rise of a Sleazebag | Rolling Stone

The last we saw of Saul Goodman, he was buying himself a new life. As Breaking Bad headed to the final countdown and Walter White was arming himself for one last battle, his oily lawyer, Saul, was off with a bus ticket to Nebraska, escaping to the fantasy Plan Z of every two-bit hustler in every American crime story. A new name. A new town. A new identity, giving him a chance to live the rest of his life as a schnook. As he told Walter, "If I'm lucky, a month from now, best-case scenario, I'm managing a Cinnabon in Omaha."
