Saul Goodman is seeking atonement in the new teaser trailer for AMC’s “Better Call Saul.”
Well, that’s not entirely correct: It is actually James M. McGill — what Goodman used to be known as — who makes that declaration in the 30-second snippet for the upcoming “Breaking Bad” prequel. And, also, he doesn’t really care about the humanity aspect of the atonement — he just wants the money and the courtroom “W.”
At one point during the short-yet-footage-filled teaser, Goodman/McGill is dumped in the desert, tied up and gagged with duct tape. That’s a look the lawyer would get used to later in his career.
“Better Call Saul” comes to AMC on Sunday, Feb. 8 at 10 p.m., with a second episode airing the following night at 10.
