Better Call Saul

Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) has been on quite the journey. Once upon a time a well-meaning trying-to-reform underdog named Jimmy McGill, he morphed into the outrageous shyster Saul of Breaking Bad infamy, then in black-and-white glimpses, we’ve seen him in post-BB exile under the assumed name of Gene Takovic, a depressive Cinnabon mall employee in Nebraska. In recent episodes, his Slippin’ Jimmy persona came back to the fore as Gene engineered some risky local crimes, only to have his cover blown by none other than the legendary Carol Burnett—as his stooge’s invalid mother, Marion. In the series finale, Saul/Gene/Jimmy is presumably on the run, and however it ends, it closes the book (for now) on the Breaking Bad saga, one of TV’s most acclaimed franchises.

Lakers CEO and controlling owner Jeanie Buss is executive producer, with director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), of the series, which opens with Dr. Jerry Buss pouring his real-estate fortune into his purchase of the Lakers, drafting rookie Magic Johnson and bringing his offspring into the “Showtime” business,
