Before Saul Goodman, he was Jimmy McGill. And if you’re calling Jimmy, you’re in real trouble. The prequel to Breaking Bad follows small-time attorney Jimmy McGill as he transforms into Walter White’s morally challenged lawyer, Saul Goodman.
Introducing Jimmy McGill. You may know him better as Saul Goodman, Walter White’s slippery, resourceful lawyer in Breaking Bad. When first we meet him it is a few years before he meets Walter White. He is a struggling lawyer in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He mostly defends small-time crooks and represents people in civil liability claims. His brother, Charles Chuck McGill, is a senior partner at a prestigious Albuquerque law firm but hasn’t left his house for several months due to a strange affliction. Jimmy is supporting him through bringing him groceries and the like. Jimmy has a dark, pre-lawyer past, being a small-time fraudster in Chicago before moving to Albuquerque to start over and work with at his brother’s firm. We also meet Mike Ehrmantraut, ex-cop now working as a toll booth attendant at the courthouse parking lot. We see how Jimmy and Mike’s stories converge and how Jimmy slowly becomes the Saul Goodman we know from Breaking Bad.
