"Air. Bryan Cranston, the star of a emcees, breaking bad returns to Syria's television for the first time since that show left the air in a new Showtime miniseries called Your Honor, which begins on Sunday. Cranston plays in New Orleans judge whose life is tourney heart after his teenage son gets into some sudden and very serious trouble. Our TV critic David Bianculli has this review. Bryan Cranston had played the goofy dad on the Fox sitcom Malcolm in the middle, then redefined himself brilliantly as Walter White, the meek high school chemistry teacher in breaking bad. What made Walter break bad was the sudden news that he had contracted terminal cancer, leading to a serious of increasingly momentous decisions. In the new Showtime miniseries Your Honor, Cranston Returns to Syria's TV playing another character who gets some sudden life changing news. This time he plays Michael Dizzy Otto, a compassionate judge in New Orleans and a single parent, raising his teenage son after the death of his wife a year ago in an unexpected tragedy. On the day of that sad anniversary. The son Adam, played by Hunter Do Han experiences an unexpected tragedy of his own after leaving flowers at the convenience store where his mother was an innocent bystander shot by robbers. Adam has an asthma attack while driving away. He searches for his inhaler on the passenger seat. And as he takes his eye off the road, he slams into a motorcycle driven by another teenager. Adam after returning home, tells his father what happened next? Where did this happen? Lord Knight. Okay. Okay, so it would be the new hospital. Then the ambulance would have taken him to what? New Orleans East and I don't know. Well, the police must have sex. I drove away..

"Better call Saul wasn't on my top ten list last year but that's only because it wasn't on TV last year the series starring Bob Odenkirk in the role of the shady lawyer who first appeared on breaking bad took the year off right now better call Saul is back for season five which is how many seasons breaking bad rain when it premiered back in two thousand eight Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould co creators of better call Saul already have announced that Saul will end after season six which means the end is in sight and when the end was in sight for breaking bad Gilligan ended up finishing that series so perfectly that it ranks for now is my favorite TV drama ever but boy better call Saul is close in breaking bad Vince Gilligan set out to tell a very complicated story showing the slow journey of a meek high school science teacher Walter white who becomes a meth manufacturing king pin and killer Bryan Cranston starred and was astounding and the character's journey had a definite ending which suggested that the breaking bad universe had reaped all its rewards not even close if you've yet to visit this particular world here's the shortest way to describe it Gilligan and company having ended the story of Walter white began playing with time and supporting characters to keep the fun and the narrative going they took the character of Saul Goodman played by Alden Kirk and put him at the center of better call Saul it was another transformation story just like breaking bad showing how a character does increasingly bad things except this was an extended flashback going back a few years the show how young lawyer named Jimmy McGill came to take on the slimy alter ego of Saul Goodman this season on better call Saul Jimmy finally has made the name change official as he tries to justify to his girlfriend and fellow lawyer Kim played by ray Sehorn yeah I can't go back to PNG maybe kill Jimmy McGill the lawyer is always going to be checking the gills loser brother I'm done with that the name is burned this is a fresh start this is how we move forward and I like it sorry if I just can't see it okay you will but better call Saul and here's where it gets mind blowing is more than just a breaking bad prequel it is that and it's a joy to spend time with characters who didn't survive that sister series better call Saul also is a sequel showing segments filmed in moody black and white the fall of the character after the events of breaking bad when Saul had gone into hiding and adopted yet another name it's a place and a fate that Saul Goodman hinted at in one of the last episodes of breaking bad when he and Walter white we're about to go their separate ways Hey I'm a civilian I'm not sure lawyer anymore I'm nobody's lawyer if the funds over from here on out I'm Mr low profile just another douche bag with the job and three pairs of dockers of unlucky months from now best case scenario I'm managing a Cinnabon in Omaha so part of this whether you like it or not I'm sorry I don't think so in better call Saul he's doing precisely that but always looking over his shoulder and in this season's extended black and white opener he gets approached and cornered by a cab driver who recognizes him from his previous life we.
