Given the end of Better Call Saul, Mark, Lawrence Ware, Sarahlyn Bruck, and Al Baker discuss this strange TV “franchise” that amazingly produced a prequel that was arguably better than the original. We cover the characterization and pacing, novelistic TV vs. not having a plot roadmap in advance, and whether we want to see another installment in this world.
A few articles we consulted included:
- “Breaking Bad vs Better Call Saul: Which Series Is Better?” by Frazier Tharpe
- “What’s next for the ‘Breaking Bad’ universe?” By Adam Starkey
- “Giancarlo Esposito Wants A Gus Fring Breaking Bad Prequel” by Eddie Makuch
- “Current TV Shows That Are Just Breaking Bad Ripoffs” from Ranker

You should do the Body Horror of David Cronenberg for Halloween. Bring on Wes Alwin and some cronenberg fans. Heck you could bring on Erika Spyre if you wanted.
