From Breaking Bad to Better Call Saul. Why is Saul Goodman so attractive?
Ignacio Zara

Saul Goodman is a fictional character in Breaking Bad TV show and the titular character of the spin-off series Better Call Saul on AMC. Breaking Bad was a great success and the series received innumerable awards. Saul Goodman had some of the best lines in Breaking Bad. Now, Better Call Saul has received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Drama Series, and Bob Odenkirk, playing the role as James “Jimmy” McGill (aka Saul Goodman), a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. Why is Saul Goodman so attractive?

Set in 2002, Better Call Saul follows the story of James Morgan “Jimmy” McGill (Bob Odenkirk), six years before his appearance on Breaking Bad as Saul Goodman. He is a small-time scam artist who becomes a lawyer, contacting with the criminal world.

Saul can be easily found in the yellow pages of Albuquerque. He is very popular thanks to his over-the-top late-night television commercials, where his catchphrase is Better call Saul! and claims “I fight for YOU, Albuquerque!”

Saul is extremely skilled at helping his clientele navigate extra-legal circumstances and is the number one at finding legal grey areas and loopholes. Really smart but a little creepy too, because he has connections to highly influential criminals.

Bob Odenkirk performs fantastic this complicated role, full of irony and suspense. Yes, he is a very attractive character! Don’t you think so?

Better Call Saul season 1 premiered on AMC on February 8, 2015. The debut episode set the record for the highest-rated scripted series premiere in basic cable history, with 4.4 million viewers in the 18–49 demographic, and 6.9 million viewers overall. Of course, a second season of 13 episodes was ordered, with the episodes expected to air in early 2016.

    What makes Saul so enjoyable? Perhaps it’s that guy Bob who play him. Great casting. Solid writing.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
