An 11-second teaser for “Better Call Saul,” the spinoff of AMC’s popular “Breaking Bad” series, hit the Internet over the weekend, ramping up fan interest in the new show’s debut early next year.

“Lawyers. We’re like health insurance. You hope you never need it, but man, oh, man, not havin’ it? No. Whew,” actor Bob Odenkirk, who plays Saul, says in the abbreviated clip.

For more interaction with Saul, fans can go to the "Better Call Saul" website, which cleverly is made to look like every cheesy attorney or used-car lot website out there.

Even though it was short, fans were all over the trailer and impatient about waiting until the reported air date of February. Some though, were just excited about the “Breaking Bad” connection.

“I'll wait it. #BreakingBad is such a brilliant show and #BetterCallSaul might be too. Vince Gilligan is a genius,” one person wrote on the YouTube page.

In early August, Bryan Cranston, who played the iconic Walter White in “Breaking Bad,” told The Beast that he would direct an episode of "Better Call Saul," but said he doesn’t know “in what context” an appearance by White might happen in the new show.

“The characters didn’t meet until the second season of Breaking Bad, when Walter needed to meet him,” Cranston said. “I suppose they could have a serendipitous brush of each other down the street or in the market, but I don’t know what good that’ll do — it’s just a little cookie. I’m looking forward to going down there next year and directing an episode, though. It’s family. They’ve got the same crew, and it’s exciting to think that we can rekindle that flame; that it’s still alive.”

The passion and attachment to “Breaking Bad” is clearly still alive in fans around the world. In fact, many worldwide complained that the trailer, and possibly even the new show, won’t play in their countries.
