‘Better Call Saul’ Rounds Up ‘Breaking Bad’ Easter Eggs in One Video
The legacy of Breaking Bad is challenging to live up to, even as the acclaimed Better Call Saul heads into its second season in a few weeks. Still, its parent series looms large, as AMC collects all the Breaking Bad references in one Better Call Saul video before Season 2.
From Saul’s offhand stories to major character appearances like Raymond Cruz’s Tuco, a new AMC video helpfully compiles the many Breaking Bad references found throughout the lawyer prequel drama. The new video also coincides with Better Call Saul Season 1's arrival on Netflix, as well as recent reports that Season 2 episodes would stream a day after their AMC airngs (this is only true outside the U.S., unfortunately)
Set for 10 episodes, rather than its initially-ordered 13, here’s how AMC describes Better Call Saul Season 2, set to premiere on February 15:
A prequel to the award-winning series “Breaking Bad,” the series follows down-on-his-luck Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) as he navigates the moral dilemmas of the legal world while trying to step out of his older brother’s shadow and make a name for himself. Season one found Jimmy stumble upon a large class-action lawsuit, which led to a promising job opportunity at a large firm. Having arrived at a fork in the road, will Jimmy take the straight and narrow path with a safe corporate job or will he fall back into his “Slippin’ Jimmy” con-artist ways?
In addition to Jonathan Banks’ return as Mike Ehrmantraut, Better Call Saul features Michael McKean as Saul/Jimmy McGill’s brother Chuck, The Last Exorcism star Patrick Fabian as white-shoe law firm lawyer Howard Hamlin, Rhea Seehorn as fellow lawyer Kim Wexler, and Orphan Black star Michael Mando as career criminal Nacho Varga.
