When this wonderfully strange legal drama premiered last year, fans of “Breaking Bad” hoped that this prequel would fill the void. But watching Bob Odenkirk’s idealistic Jimmy McGill slowly become “Breaking Bad’s” Saul Goodman is an embarrassment of TV riches. Also, great supporting work from Jonathan Banks, Michael McKean and Rhea Seehorn. Season premiere, 10 p.m. Monday, Feb. 15, on AMC.

The much-anticipated spinoff of “Breaking Bad” opens with a moody black and white sequence featuring our hero, Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), in present-day Omaha, Neb. We then flash back six years ago when he was a small-time Albuquerque, N.M., public defender named Jimmy McGill trying to keep his head above water. Creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould have set the series in the same sun-baked, bleak world as “Breaking Bad,” and it’s great to see Odenkirk back in this character’s skin (and Michael McKean is delightfully weird as Jimmy’s older brother). Oh, and if the last few seconds of the premiere don’t seal the deal for you, you might want to look elsewhere for your TV entertainment. Series premiere, 10 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 8, on AMC.
I’m not sure what to expect with tonight’s series finale, but I can’t wait to see what happens. Thank you Vince Gilligan for some damn fine television.
Trust me, you should take a deep breath. It’s finally here. The beginning of the end of this phenomenally twisted, engrossing and Emmy-winning drama that never ceases to surprise or exceed expectations. No spoilers here, just know that Bryan Cranstson, Aaron Paul and Dean Norris are working at the top of their abilities, and there are two scenes in this new episode that are so tense, I think I forgot to breathe. Strap yourself in, it’s going to be quite a race to the finish line. 9 p.m. Sunday on AMC
As I’ve said recently to anyone who will listen, “Is there anything else on TV tonight?” After last season’s explosive finale, I have no idea what to expect from this great Emmy-winning series and the ever-evolving character Walter White (Bryan Cranston), his partner Jesse (Aaron Paul) and his family (Anna Gunn, Dean Norris). And yes, there are plenty of other things to watch tonight, I just know exactly where I will be at 10 p.m. Season premiere Sunday on AMC.
