Better Call Saul

This past weekend was the premiere of the new show on AMC, "Better Call Saul." It's the "prequel" to "Breaking Bad" which follows the exploits of everyone's favorite sleazeball lawyer, Saul Goodman. Since its storyline is so entwined with the "Breaking Bad" storyline, the show also takes place in ABQ. One of the first shots in the new show (after the Cinnabon intro filmed at Cottonwood Mall) is of Saul parking at the courthouse. The parking lot is actually the parking lot for the convention center which is a whole 2 blocks from my office. Here's a pic I took today at lunchtime. I didn't check to see if Mike was manning the booth.

So now I can do the albear and dexter_fox thing of saying "That's ABQ!" every time there's a familiar exterior shot from around the city (Al and Dex use "L.A.").
