AMC offers another taste of Better Call Saul with this new trailer

He oozed sleaze and shadiness from his very pores. And he also had a very big mouth. We’re speaking, of course, about the scene-stealing character Saul Goodman from the tremendously successful AMC show Breaking Bad, who will grace our screens once again in a spin-off called Better Call Saul on Monday, February 9. The latest teaser trailer for the show appears to show the dramatic introduction between Saul, and the lovable but lethal Mike Ehrmantraut, played by Jonathan Banks, who eventually serves as Goodman’s muscle, so to speak.

You wouldn’t know the two would be teaming up based on their first encounter, however. Setting up the same darkly delightful odd-couple pairing we enjoyed on Breaking Bad, the trailer shows Saul taunting Ehrmantraut, whom Saul presumes to be an old and hapless parking attendant. Unfortunately for Saul (in the short and long run) that parking attendant is no run-of-the-mill retiree earning some additional income, but a former cop with a no-nonsense disposition, and a penchant for badassery.

The scene puts that same, incomparable Breaking Bad flavor in your mouth, which bodes well for the highly anticipated new/old chapter in the story. The best part may just may be the quick glance at another one of Mike’s indelible eye rolls as he realizes Saul will need to be dealt with.

Better Call Saul, which will enjoy a two-night premier at 10 pm ET/PT on Monday February 9 and 10, according to The Vergewill see Bob Odenkirk’s Goodman take the spot light, looking at the slimy lawyer’s life and story in the six years before he meets the infamous Walter White (Bryan Cranston) who eventually leaves him (spoiler alert) on the run with a new identity.

We’ll get to see how Goodman spirals downward from small-town lawyer into the deep, dark world of criminal behavior right alongside his clients.

Goodman’s downfall may not be as drastic as Walter White’s fall from a timid chemistry teacher to the do-you-know-who-I-am, pork pie hat-wearing, don’t-mess-with-me Heisenberg. But if the teaser videos are any indication, it promises to be just as compelling, or at least entertaining. Stay tuned for more as AMC stokes the fire leading up to February’s premiere.

Save $350 on Samsung’s best soundbar bundle for Memorial Day
Samsung HW-Q990D Dolby Atmos Soundbar.

If you already have a great TV, even if it's not one of the best TVs on the market, the next best upgrade is to grab yourself a high-quality soundbar. While there are a lot of different brands out there, Samsung makes some of the best soundbars you'll find, like the Samsung Q-series 11.1.4 ch. which, as you can tell, has a ton of channels for you to work with. Luckily, Samsung is knocking $360 off the $2,000 price tag, bringing it down to a more justifiable $1,650 as part of the Memorial Day weekend sales.

Why you should buy the Samsung Q-series 11.1.4 ch. Wireless Soundbar
One great thing about going with a Samsung sound bar is that if you already have a Samsung TV, you can pair both and use the TV's soundbars as part of the whole audio soundscape, so it's like adding an extra couple of channels into the mix. Even if you don't, you get a total of a whopping 22 speakers combined when you include the subwoofer, satellites, and the soundbar, meaning you can create some really powerful surround sound even if you don't have a Samsung TV. Total power sits around 656 watts, so it can get really loud if you really want to pump up the volume.

TVs aren't always a form of art, but The Frame TV certainly pushes the boundary between a TV and an art piece, is a pretty unique piece of tech to snag, and is probably one of the best TVs on the market.

Luckily, there's an excellent Memorial Day weekend deal on the The Frame TV, knocking up to $1,000 off the stylish telly.
