What's airing now on AMC:
1. Better Call Saul
For any Breaking Bad fan, it's hard to forget the hilariously slimy lawyer Saul Goodman, who helped Walter get out of various potentially tricky legal situations. Luckily, he’s back with his very own spin off Better Call Saul, which takes a look at his life pre-Breaking Bad era when he was a struggling newbie lawyer simply known as “Jimmy” McGill. As a challenging relationship with his eccentric but highly successful lawyer brother Chuck is explored, various fan favourite Breaking Bad characters make reappearances. Funny, intriguing and visually captivating, Better Call Saul has been hailed by critics for both Bob Odenkirk’s performance and the stellar screenwriting.
Season One of Better Call Saul airs every Tuesday at 9pm.
2. 10 years of Mad Men
>Slicker than a crisp Savile Row suit and cooler than an eskimo taking on the ice bucket challenge in the Arctic, Mad Men had seven series of unbeatable drama.
Jon Hamm, January Jones, John Slattery and Christina Hendricks were among the cast who turned this show about an ad agency in 1960s New York into a global phenomenon and in the process moved the goal posts on the quality we expect from our TV shows.
