After years of rumors, we’ll soon be getting a follow-up to one of the greatest shows in TV history. El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will debut on Netflix on October 11th – and we have a few ideas of what we’d like to see when it does.
First things first: if El Camino is going to truly satisfy fans of Breaking Bad, it has to feel like an extension of the series. The easiest way to do this would be through the use of callbacks. Breaking Bad laid on the callbacks to previous episodes early and often, a practice which continued in the spin-off series Better Call Saul. The callbacks in Breaking Bad were wildly varied, from dialogue to clothing choices to music, and were used for a lot more than just fan service.
El Camino will only have a couple of hours to tell its story, and we don’t expect it to spend its entire run time reminding us that, holy cow, we’re watching more Breaking Bad. But deploying clever, subtle callbacks to the series is one way in which El Camino can honor the show’s legacy.
We get the feeling that El Camino won’t feature too many returning characters from Breaking Bad, for the simple fact that the majority of the more significant supporting players are, well, dead. But thanks to Better Call Saul, we know that “criminal lawyer” Saul Goodman got safely out of town in the aftermath of White’s downfall, and ended up exactly where he predicted he would: managing a Cinnabon in some nondescript mall in Omaha. Keep watching the video to see all things we want to see in El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie!
