With the sixth and final season of AMC’s Better Call Saul beginning filming, now is the perfect time for anyone who hasn’t gotten into the show to start. And yes, we understand how good Breaking Bad was, but trust me, this show isn’t just a b-grade spin-off of it.

Series Specific Stories & Characters
One of the hardest parts about creating a prequel series is that you have to keep fans interested even though they already know how a lot of the characters and main stories end up. Better Call Saul solves this problem by focusing on things that don’t require viewers to even have seen Breaking Bad to be interesting or compelling.
Some of the best storylines in Better Call Saul center around brand new characters like Chuck McGill and Kim Wexler.
Whether it’s the debilitating, hidden disease that is crippling a genius lawyer or the struggles of an up-and-coming one, these stories are interesting regardless of where they fit into the franchise’s overall mythos.
Of course, we are curious as to why Jimmy never mentioned them before, but that mystery is kind of just icing on the cake. The main draw is getting to see how their stories affect Jimmy’s rise as Saul Goodman.
