Rumors of the series started surfacing about a year ago, and eventually spawned into a confirmed project that was promised to be seeking the original (and now largely famous) cast.

Better Call Saul, the spin-off show from the hit series Breaking Bad, will be arriving on AMC on February 8 as part of a two-day premiere.

The Netflix-branded series trailer has officially dropped, and is likely the first of several that'll arrive before the series debuts.

Netflix on piracy: it’s still one of the “biggest competitors”

Netflix on piracy: it’s still one of the “biggest competitors”

Piracy. Despite the near endless efforts to battle it, the Internet has always won out in the end and illegal downloads show no signs of going away. The ease of access that video streaming services and similar products offer has given consumers attractive (legal) alternatives, and many have embraced them.
