AMC feels sure that the season 2 premiere and finale of the television series Better Call Saul will lead to some healthy discussion. The network has enlisted television host and stand-up comedian Chris Hardwick to lead the conversation.
As claimed by Entertainment Weekly, AMC will air installments of Talking Saul after each of those two key episodes. The network made a public declaration on Friday that the TV series masterminds Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould as well as the actor, comedian and writer Bob Odenkirk will appear on the hour-long live episode that airs after the season 2 premiere of the Breaking Bad prequel on February 15 at 11 p.m. ET. The finale-following episode will kick off on April 18.
Slate reports that when Better Call Saul begins, it picks up where the first season left off; the season focused on the character Saul when he was still going by his given name James “Jimmy” McGill and working hard as a low-level lawyer. The season also showed the needs of his OCD brother Chuck portrayed by Michael McKean.
According to NY Times, “Better Call Saul is not the best drama on TV. But it’s one of the most unusual and daring. The showrunners, Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, used the capital and patience the prequel had in the bank, as a series with a built-in audience, to tell a quirkily absorbing story of a little guy’s doomed struggle to break good.”
In addition, AMC has also exposed eight episodes of the talk show Talking Bad during Breaking Bad’s final season in 2013, while Talking Dead, which has been running for five seasons, will return on Sunday.
