The struggles of writing the "Breaking Bad" spinoff "Better Call Saul."

"When I say drama, even in a comedy, you want drama, you want tension and conflict, and a character that at heart seems at peace with himself is intrinsically undramatic ... . So we've been thinking about how to address that issue."

That sounds like an acknowledgement that the idea of spinning off a supporting character with zero inner life was, maybe, kinda a bad idea to start with.

How about if Saul is out walking across the Central Avenue bridge and he sees the dorsal fin of this shark that's swum all the way up the Rio Grande, and he like jumps off the bridge and lands right on the back of the shark?
