Last time we saw Saul Goodman, he was fleeing the Heisenberg-induced madness to a new life in Nebraska. But lucky for us, we’ll get to see him for the first time…again. In the chronology of the Breaking Bad universe — that place where all of New Mexico is a hyper-saturated orange hue — AMC’s upcoming Better Call Saul takes place six years before Walter White cooked up his first batch. Tonight, get a sneak peek at this highly anticipated origin story that creator Vince Gilligan said “started as a joke” but ended up as a spin-off, on the table as early as Breaking Bad’s third season. Bob Odenkirk, the dirty lawyer himself, will discuss the new series with Jonathan Banks (Mike! Alive again!) and Michael McKean, who will play Saul’s brother. Accept the charges, because this is one call you can’t afford not to take.
