5 Shows like Better Call Saul: I Fought the Law

Josh‘Better Call Saul’ is the prequel to the groundbreakingly awesome ‘Breaking Bad’.

Instead of Walter White, this show centers around the origins of sleazy but loveable lawyer, Saul Goodman. Before his flashy cars and wacky advertisements, Saul was known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer living in the shadow of his brother.

Much like the show did with ‘Breaking Bad’, Jimmy steps out of his brother’s shadow, proving he can take on the law himself with a little bit of playing dirty along the way. For more law based shows like ‘Better Call Saul’, check out my recommendations. ~ Josh Sammons
