'We came out of people's most favourite show ever, we could have been hated for simply trying.'
"A year ago today I briefly flirted with 'quietus' and this elicited a wave of goodwill and warmth towards me," the Better Call Saul actor wrote on the anniversary of his heart attack. "I will forever feel unworthy of it."
The 58-year-old actor, who suffered a heart attack on July 27, tweeted a picture of himself in the makeup chair on the show's Albuquerque set.

The official nominations are due to be announced on 14 July 2016, when we’ll finally find out whether or not ‘Game of Thrones’ is in the running for Best Drama.

I love Better Call Saul. I love Its nuance, I love Its shades of grey and I love the way that it captivates me. This isn’t Breaking Bad, there’s no meth cooks or shootouts, all the links to future are made with Mike’s story, instead, the drama comes from the Shakespearian relationship between two brothers and all the people that may get hurt around them.
If you haven’t seen it, though, whatever you do, don’t go into Better Call Saul expecting Breaking Bad. Very broadly speaking, Breaking Bad is a show about crime, Better Call Saul is a show about Law and it’s these differences that set the shows apart and make Saul as relevant as it is. Within a handful of episodes, Saul has evolved from a potentially unnecessary prequel to something exceedingly necessary, not because of its relation to Breaking Bad, though it also bore the same qualities, but because of its pace.
Kim Wexler spends the episode struggling to get out of a hole that Jimmy dug for her, sort of, and despite her best efforts, she just can’t get back out on top. Towards the end her conversation with Chuck is very interesting indeed, setting up a potential friendship/partnership that could put Jimmy off of his stride and shows great development for the two characters.
It’s a testament to the quality of this show that even though you know that certain characters will make it out alive of each episode, you’re still as tense or excited as hell when something big and dramatic happens. In this episode, it’s Mikes confrontation with Tuco which keeps us on edge as his and Nachos plan to get Tuco out of the picture includes getting repeatedly punched in the face in a scene that involves a gun and the police. Bookending the episode with Mike and his battered face adds to the episode, making us interested but unsure of how he came to be this way.
A year has passed and the Breaking Bad’s spin-off, Better Call Saul is ready to return with its second season. Last year AMC, the house producer of Breaking Bad, premiered the first episode of its new spin-off show. The author of the most high-rated series in the TV history, Vince Gilligan has been successfully testing himself with a new project that involved many characters from the previous show and its new protagonist, Bob Odenkirk’s sleazy lawyer Saul Goodman and his despicable criminal clients.
