Better call Saul. In Breaking Bad, Saul Goodman provided legal cover for ethically challenged clients while Mike, his fix-it man, cleaned up their messes. In the new series Better Call Saul, we get Saul and Mike’s back stories. “Saul” is actually Jimmy McGill, an underpaid public defender and sometime con-artist. His attempts to break a big case lead him into tangles with embezzlers, a drug gang, a murder investigation, and corporate swindlers. He hooks up with Mike, an ex-cop working as a parking attendant at the courthouse, when he has a job the requires Mike’s special skill set. Like Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul mixes drama and comedy for edgy effect.
