On AMC Sunday night, the much-anticipated debut of the “Breaking Bad” prequel-spinoff, “Better Call Saul” (10 p.m.), focuses on the story of Walter White’s lawyer, Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), six years before that infamous blue meth hit Albuquerque. In the opener, Saul is actually Jimmy McGill, a public defender trying to do the right thing. As with “Breaking Bad’s” examination of the moral unraveling of Walter White, this series will show Good Jimmy’s transformation into Sketchy Saul, but the tone will be decidedly lighter.
