    In all honesty, all of the characters in the show could have a backstory. I'd like to see one of Jesse of his school years. Maybe one of Walt. Jr before he eats breakfast..

    At first I thought it was gonna happen after Breaking Bad, which pissed me off thinking it was a spoiler guaranteeing Saul lives (nothing against him living, just don't want no damn spoilers)

    I don't like that it's a prequel mainly because I'll know Saul's fate at the end of the series so I won't be invested towards something leading into another something that I'll already know.


    Wouldn't be much of a spoiler if it was a sequel considering Saul is supposed to be the cockroach/cowardly character of the series. Those characters always live in the end.

    Being a cowardly cockroach didn't work out so well for Beni in The Mummy.

    It can only be done really well, or it'll just jump the shark.

    I have a good feeling that it's gonna be bad.

    ...Eh? I thought Saul and co. were good side characters but didn't have as much to stand on with their own show. Seems kinda like a cash in on the Breaking Bad popularity.
