Those of you who subscribe to ‘Netflix’ are possibly currently enjoying the spin-off from the American crime drama television series ‘Breaking Bad,’ entitled ‘Better Call Saul,’ which now features (Season 1 Episode 6) the very lovely Thurles, Co Tipperary native and actress M/s Kerry Condon.
(See hereunder a brief video clip of M/s Condon, who plays Stacey Ehrmantraut, opposite Jonathan Ray Banks who plays Mike Ehrmantraut, latter her fictional father-in-law.)
In this episode we finally find out what has brought Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Ray Banks) to New Mexico. We also find out what is keeping him there and a little more information about his vague, even hidden past life. In this series Mike’s daughter-in-law (Kerry Condon) has relocated from Philadelphia with her daughter, following the tragic death of Mike’s son, Matt. Matt’s tragic death it appears is more complicated than even his wife Stacey is aware.
Stacey (Kerry Condon), in the clip shown above plays superbly the character of a somewhat confused recent widow, now past mourning, who really doesn’t know how to handle her husband Matt’s recent death. Mike will go on to admit to Stacey that he feels responsible for his son death and that he has already executed Matt’s murderers.
To tell you any more of the story line would spoil it, particularly for former lovers of ‘Breaking Bad,’ so do watch ‘Better Call Saul’ and with Bob Odenkirk returned in the title role of the character Saul Goodman, I promise that this series is ‘everything and more’ that you could possibly expect from this very clever spin-off television crime series.
Can’t wait for the eventual Box Set.
