Netflix streaming first season of 'Better Call Saul' starting Monday - Albuquerque Journal

Netflix streaming first season of ‘Better Call Saul’ starting Monday

Getting ready for the start of the second season of “Better Call Saul” on Feb. 15?

Netflix announced that the first season of the Emmy-nominated show will begin streaming on Monday. So it’s time to catch up before the Feb. 15 second season premiere.

When AMC’s “Better Call Saul,” premiered in April, it had 6.9 million viewers, making it what the network says is the biggest series premiere in cable history.

The much-anticipated prequel to “Breaking Bad” takes place six years before the beginning of “Breaking Bad” and follows the transformation of Jimmy McGill from a down-and-out lawyer into Saul Goodman, an ace attorney for the criminal element. Bob Odenkirk reprises his “Breaking Bad” role, and the show is guaranteed to take some twists and turns. Like “Breaking,” it’s filmed in Albuquerque.

To compare the two series, “Breaking Bad” didn’t reach more than 6 million viewers until the next-to-last show. Then its finale brought in 10.3 million viewers, a record for the series.

The series’ average hovered between 2 million and 3 million viewers through its first five seasons.

And “Breaking Bad” boomed when Netflix began streaming the previous season. Let’s see what it does for “Better Call Saul.”
