LOL no.

Cranston and Paul will not be in this show. This is a prequel.

My guess is the finale of the show will feature "Mr. Mayhew."

i know it's a prequel. i just think a couple of sessions in they should do that, do a scene in the present and show what happened to Jesse & Saul.

The more I see of this the more I'm worried about it not being very good. Hopefully I'm wrong, but I just can't get excited about it.

Well judging by the commercial for it that we're forced to see 12 times every single commercial break: It's showtime! Also - YOOOOOOOOUUUUU...... WILLLLLLLL....... ATONE!!!! And lots of staring intently at phone booths out in the middle of the desert for no descernible reason will all ensue.

That's about how I feel. I'll watch. I didn't much care for Saul on Breaking Bad, but I'll give Vince Gilligan the benefit of the doubt.

They have confirmed many times that Cranston will only be involved as a director, and that no part of the Breaking Bad storyline will be mentioned.

I don't need any part of the Breaking Bad storyline in the Saul show(it would be nice). I believe that with the same writers the show will progress in just as the same way Breaking Bad moved along. The AMC, the writers and producers know what a phenomenon BB was and will try to re-create the same thing. BB just ran its course and it was time to end .

It didn't "run its course." Gilligan created the show with the intention of ending it in five seasons. The plan was to have a beginning, middle, and end and not drag it out like other drama series. That's why it was so revolutionary. It was a complete story.

That's what I meant by run it's course. They started a story and then the story was done. Like in a race, you start a race course and then the finish line, then you cross it and you have finished the course.

Usually if a show "runs its course" and is "time to end," that means they've been dragging on some bullshit story that viewers are no longer interested in. Like a show is fading.

A novel does not "run its course," it is completed. Concluded. The story ends at the appropriate time.

DEXTER, was a show that ran its course. WEEDS ran its course. Breaking Bad did exactly what was intended, which was to show us an epic transformation of a character and then end with a bang.

That's good, i'm pretty excited for this but i'm only on the fourth episode of Breaking Bad so hopefully i'll be able to follow it, seeing as I have no idea who Saul is yet.

The Saul reveal on BB is pretty satisfying but I'm sure you'll be fine.

The show begins with a flash-forward of post-BB Saul
