Better Call Saul started as a prequel spin-off to Breaking Bad and today it has become its own show. The amazing storyline of the crooked lawyer Saul Goodman has left everyone in splits.
Initially, fans of the original show started to watch Better call Saul because they were missing it. But with time, everyone was interested in the life of Jimmy, who is a con artist on the path of becoming a lawyer.
Better Call Saul season 4 premiered last year and has been a major award winner. It also has high chances of winning big at the 71st Emmy Awards happening this September because of the following reasons.
Brilliant Acting of all cast members
Bob Odenkirk as the lawyer Jimmy McGill has been amazing in all the four seasons of Better Call Saul. He has added so much depth to the show and character, that the show makers decided to renew the show every time. Johnathan Banks as Mike who was already praised for his acting in Breaking Bad has also been a brilliant supporting actor. All the cast members including Gus has given their best performance in Better Call Saul.
Connection with Breaking Bad
Everyone thought that a prequel holds no meaning as the future story is known, but Better Call Saul proved everyone wrong. The show has proved that the journey is more important than the destination. The special nods and references to Breaking Bad, while maintaining its own original story definitely deserves praises and award.
Gripping story and Twists
Better Call Saul has been so intense since the first season and while maintaining the character balance. Its pacing is so brilliant with all the twists and turns, that one can’t miss a single second of any episode. The fourth season of Better Call Saul has brought the show closer to the world of Breaking Bad and things are getting hotter.
It is not the first time that Better Call Saul will win an award, the shows have been a consistent winner taking the majority of the prizes home. The show has been nominated for a Peabody Award, 23 Primetime Emmy Awards, 7 Writers Guild of America Awards, 5 Critics’ Choice Television Awards, and 2 Golden Globe Awards. It is expected that this year is going to be a major win for Better Call Saul.
No proper Competition
The biggest competition to Better Call Saul at this year’s Emmy Awards was supposed to Game of Thrones season 8. But given how bad the GOT final season was, there are very less chances it wins any major award. Apart from that, there is not much competition this year anyways. It has made the Better Call Saul the main game for Emmy Awards this year.
