Better Call Saul

From the creators of the cult TV show Breaking Bad, comes another gripping tale of Saul Goodman — who also starred in several episodes of Breaking Bad.

Known to many as Heisenberg’s lawyer, the series follows the life of Saul — originally Jimmy McGill — who is working hard to transform himself from a street punter to a man of justice.

It’s a fast-paced drama which portrays stereotypes in the society and different culture followed by various classes of people during that time — the storyline is crisp and catchy and seldom seems draggy.
