DON’T MISS: “Better Call Saul” – In the next-to-last season of the “Breaking Bad” prequel, Jimmy McGill’s (Bob Odenkirk) decision to practice law as flashy huckster “Saul Goodman” creates waves of change throughout Albuquerque’s legal and illegal circles. Kim Wexler (Rheea Seehorn) finds herself at a crossroads as her connection to Jimmy deepens. Wracked with guilt and regret, Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) hits rock bottom. Meanwhile, Nacho Varga (Michael Mando) tries to survive as Gus Fring’s (Giancarlo Esposito) covert war on the cartel becomes a life-and-death chess match with Lalo Salamanca (Tony Dalton). The two-hour season premiere continues the following night in the show’s regular 9 p.m. time slot. (10 p.m. Sunday, AMC).
