AMC has been doing a good if somewhat frustrating job of marketing the hell out of their upcoming “Better Call Saul” without much in the way of images or footage from the series. There has been a very small amount, but it has been seemed wildly out of proportion with the amount of effort they are expending on a program that’s still a good two months away from broadcast. But that changes today with the arrival of a new teaser trailer which, believe it or not, has actual scenes from the series. But there is a downside….
Running only thirty seconds long, this thing whips by in a flash but nonetheless lays down the show’s groundwork. We’re jumping back to 2002 to see the origins of Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), or as he was known then, James M. McGill, a textbook shyster who seems even more desperate than he was in the days of “Breaking Bad,” and at the very least far less successful. How, when and why did McGill become Goodman? Well, that’s for Vince Gilligan to know and for us to find out, but you can lay out your theories in the comments section.
“Better Call Saul” arrives on February 8th. [Vulture]
