  1. Interesting that you give Breaking Bad as an example. I haven’t seen it yet but am watching the first season of the prequel – Better call Saul. The extremely flawed Saul / Jimmy, doesn’t seem so far to have learned from his many humiliating experiences. I haven’t worked out exactly why yet, but I’ve taken to him.


    1. I’ve not seen Better Call Saul. I’m guessing Saul is the ‘lovable rogue’ type – not a good man as such, but has redeeming qualities and a strong code of conduct (even if it’s not a particularly moral one).
