Lawyer Saul Goodman from Breaking Bad is getting his own spinoff called Better Call Saul. Justifiably so, he was a great character. However there are still plenty of other characters from the show that could have a great spinoff. Here are a few new ideas for spinoffs based on Breaking Bad characters.
Skinny Pete and Fat Pete
After helping to scare the Schwartz Family with laser pointers, Skinny Pete and Badger discover that Skinny Pete has a long lost brother, also named Pete. They set out to find him on a journey across America. When they finally do they realize he is very overweight and they have no way of fitting him in the car to take him back to New Mexico so the two friends have to decide whether they should stay in Northern Maine to care for him and start a new life or go back to their old ways.
Mexican Cartel member Hector Salmanaca is wheelchair bound, but that isn’t stopping him from trying out for a new popular game show where all answers must be in the form of a gross facial expression. The game show is perfect for Salmanaca as he has been ringing bells for years, which helps him buzz in before other contestants, and knows every gross facial expression there is. He gets really rich from his earnings and gets into a good nursing home until he explodes himself.
Bodyguard Huell needs a new job. Thankfully it’s Christmas season and the local mall needs a Santa Claus. Huell tries out, in spite of racial remarks, and becomes the most popular mall Santa in the history of New Mexico. Now all he has to do is save the mall from being demolished by a group of financiers.
The best friend of Walt Jr. aka Flynn was Louis Corbett. Louis had very little screen time and impact on the show because he was too busy leaving it up to our imaginations and to save the action for his very own spinoff. In this series we watch as Louis gets beat up by classmates and escapes into the magical world of comic books. Part of the show would be animated to help attract a younger audience. Another half of the show would be in black and white to attract an older audience. Finally the third half would be broadcast in Spanish to please a foreign demographic.
