For some Breaking Bad diehard fans, Saul Goodman comes in at #1. But here at EveryJoe, we think he’s a solid #5.
He’s just about the most crooked lawyer you will ever find, but Saul Goodman proves himself as a valuable ally to Walt and Jesse throughout all of their criminal dealings. The pair originally calls Saul for help in getting Badger out of prison, but he quickly proves himself more useful by arranging a scheme to keep Badger free and throw the DEA off Walt and Jesse’s scent.
Saul continues to help out the pair by contracting the services of Mike, even though things get complicated very fast. Of all the characters in the show, Saul provides the most comic relief, as everything down to his advertising campaign – “Better call Saul!” – tends to be hilarious. As such, he is an unforgettable beacon of comedy in an otherwise bleak show.
