The wait between seasons is always excruciating for Better Call Saul fans, but it’s especially difficult after the cliffhanger ending in season 5.

Fans can binge-watch ‘Breaking Bad’ again

It may seem like the obvious answer, but it bears repeating. Anyone who truly loves Better Call Saul should go back to the very beginning and watch the show that started it all: Breaking Bad. Not only will the series provide hours upon hours of viewing pleasure, but it will also provide context for all those subtle hints sprinkled throughout Better Call Saul.

For instance, the flashback scenes with Gus Fring help explain some of his motivations for wanting revenge on the cartel. And Saul Goodman bears little resemblance to the Jimmy McGill fans encounter in Better Call Saul. However, his journey to becoming that person is part of what makes Better Call Saul so compelling.
