A-Z Day 14

N is for Netflix.

I know I've mentioned this streaming media site previously, but this time I had to mention a series on Netflix that has both my wife and I hooked (again). It's the spin-off story of  Saul, the lawyer from the original 'Breaking Bad' series (also addictive and wonderfully done). This show is entitled, 'Better Call Saul', and to be honest I wasn't expecting much after the original BB series, in which I found Saul to be a 'pain-in-the-butt' kind of character. Upon reflection, that was purely down to the excellent acting skills of Bob Odenkirk for breathing life into the character he played/plays.

It's a great introduction as to how Saul came into being and how he elevated himself into the seedy status of a back-room lawyer that we were introduced to when Walt Whitman teamed up with him. As usual, the stories flow smoothly and almost effortlessly, making you wince at times, and at others feel empathy for struggling Saul. It has humour and tension and entertains throughout.

So if you were/are a fan of the 'Breaking Bad' series and have yet to watch 'Better Call Saul', do it - you won't be sorry.  As a taster, watch the official trailer below - enjoy :)

  1. Don't have Netfix, I know people laugh when I say I am afraid of technology... knowing my business in it...

  2. I still need to catch up on Better Call Saul. I loved Breaking Bad. We don't have Netflix because it would kill our Internet download limits at home. :(

    1. I feel your pain, Cherie - I detest download limitations, especially as we are in the 21st century. But thank you for dopping by, it's a pleasure to have you here :)
