February is upon us and so is the second season of Better Call Saul. AMC’s rookie television show takes a look into the life of Jimmy McGill, the finest lawyer in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The show enters into its second season full of potential to become an award-winning show, much like its founding show, Breaking Bad.
Better Call Saul follows the life of Jimmy McGill, a struggling lawyer trying to make it in this rough world. Originally, Jimmy played the role of Saul Goodman on the groundbreaking show Breaking Bad. In Breaking Bad, Saul was the lawyer for Walter White, the chemistry teacher that turned into New Mexico’s greatest producer of crystal meth. Saul would always help Walter get out of sticky situations and help him to be careful with the millions of dollars he was making while producing meth.
Now the show Better Call Saul follows Jimmy before he became Saul. This may be confusing, but the series, shows his life before he became a lawyer for criminals. In the first season of the show we discover that Jimmy received his law degree while he worked in the mail room of his older brother’s law firm. Jimmy cannot get a job at his brother’s law firm so he spends his time working on elder law.
Before becoming a lawyer Jimmy was known as Slippin’ Jimmy. He got this name from pulling off con tricks on people that came into a local bar.
The show is witty and humorous and is a little less intense than Breaking Bad. But is still a great show for all Breaking Bad fans. Better Call Saul airs every Monday at 10 p.m. This show is also my Netflix Pick of the Week as the first season just became available to watch on Netflix.
