'Better Call Saul' Clip Teases 'Walking Dead' Audience (Video)

By    |   Tuesday, 02 Dec 2014 06:33 AM

The "Better Call Saul" rollout – the prequel to AMC's megahit "Breaking Bad" – continued Sunday with a one-minute clip during the mid-season finale of "The Walking Dead."

The new series features Bob Odenkirk reprising his "Breaking Bad" role of wrong-side-of-the-law attorney Saul Goodman six years before he would meet a teacher who turns into meth kingpin Walter White, according to Variety.

The series actually picks up before the character is known as Goodman, but rather as small-time attorney Jimmy McGill, according to Rolling Stone. The plot line, crafted partly by "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan, will explore his transformation into Saul Goodman.

In the video clip, Goodman butts heads at a parking lot entrance with another "Breaking Bad" holdover Mike Ehrmantraut, played by Jonathan Banks.

"The situation escalates, and Banks reminds everyone that Mike is not one to be messed with," wrote Variety's Alex Stedman. "AMC has gradually been unveiling little sneak peeks that started with mere 10-second teasers and moved up to (a) music video unveiled in October."



"Better Call Saul" is scheduled to premiere on AMC on Feb. 8, according to the network.

The rough and tumble Ehrmantraut was a fan favorite as Goodman's private investigator and fixer on "Breaking Bad" for two-plus seasons before he was killed off by White in Season 5, according to Deadline.com. The character was also the security head for Los Pollos Hermano and the heavy in Gustavo Fring's crystal meth operation.

Ross Miller of The Verge said the clip will bring a smile to the face of "Breaking Bad" fans who are familiar with both characters.

"Look, we get it; there's been a deluge of 'Better Call Saul' teasers these last few months," wrote Miller. "Today, we get the teaser we've wanted since Jonathan Banks was confirmed to be reprising his 'Breaking Bad' role. This one-minute scene features Bob Odenkirk as the titular character, meeting Mike Ehrmantraut (Banks) for maybe the second time. It goes about as well as you'd expect."

Banks can be seen in a co-starring role as Detective Hatcher in the movie "Horrible Bosses 2," which was released last month. The actor also plays Professor Hickey in the television series "Community" on NBC.
