In “Breaking Bad” he was the funny, powerful supporting character, meanwhile Bob Odenkirk has been the star himself as the windy lawyer Saul Goodman for many years in “Better Call Saul”, a series that runs on Netflix in Germany and has won dozens of international awards. But soon it’s over for Saul – and many fans are wondering: what should they watch afterwards?
Netflix now has a few weeks “too early”. a suitable alternative released, which fans should make a note of when the “Breaking Bad” cosmos comes to an end. Her name is “The Lincoln Lawyer” and the rough plot might look familiar to one or the other film fan, because the story and especially the main character have actually been seen in the cinema before. So what is the series about?
Legal Representatives on Wheels: “The Lincoln Lawyer”
Michael “Mickey” Haller (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo) is the one Lawyer with the weirdest office in Los Angeles: It is in a Lincoln Town Car, with which he can be driven around the area. From there, he takes on the city’s toughest cases and lobbies for anyone who needs help. He does not shy away from defending criminalswhich has given him a dubious reputation – as has the pill addiction he has only recently overcome.
The series is based on the novel of the same name by Michael Connelly, which was published in 2011 with Matthew McConaughey in the leading role under the German title “Der Mandant”. While the film is a relatively faithful adaptation of the book, the series is only loosely based on the characters and tells its own story in every episode. So if you’re still in the mood for a lawyer after “Better Call Saul” who even punches criminals out in court, you can get them all ten episodes of 50 minutes each since May 13 on Netflix watch.
