Who could resist a home page with the headline “Welcome Lawbreakers!”
It’s BetterCallSaul.com, the gateway to the online world of antihero attorney Saul and the hilarious complement to the AMC-TV series “Better Call Saul.”
The “Breaking Bad” prequel follows the misadventures of Saul, aka Jimmy McGill, the late Walter White’s criminal attorney – with emphasis on the criminal part.
The site is structured like a business website, with cheesy TV commercials, testimonials and garish graphics.
Calling the “not-toll-free” phone number listed on the site directs the caller to a recorded voice-mail message from Saul himself: “Drug felonies, press 1. DUI, press 2.”
AMC’s own site (amctv.com) has plenty of ways for viewers to fill in time between weekly episodes, too.
One of the best is “Letters from Saul,” written by the series script writers. In one, he dodges a rent increase from his landlord with a not-so-subtle threat to turn her in as an animal hoarder.
Video extras include episode excerpts, behind-the-scenes features, trailers and previews.
Interactive features include Story Sync, which lets viewers interact with the show during the premiere of the latest episode, and the Alias Generator.
