'Better Call Saul!' creators: 'It was not just a joke, but a potentially good idea.'

Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould on the long, strange journey of the 'Breaking Bad' prequel

As I said in my review of AMC’s “Better Call Saul!” I approached the “Breaking Bad” prequel with some skepticism about whether it could work, before ultimately being pleased with the first three episodes. Two other men who had deep and long-lasting concerns about the viability of the project? That would be “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan and producer Peter Gould, who wrote the episode that introduced Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman.

Review: FOX's 'Backstrom' the latest attempt at 'House, PD'

Rainn Wilson's not a good fit as a caveman cop with a gift for profling

Imitation is the sincerest form of television, and the biggest hits will be imitated over and over and over again — sometime well after they've gone off the air. "House" was one of the defining hits of the last decade on FOX, and it inspired clones in various traditional TV fields, with lawyers (James Woods in "Shark"), and even other doctors (Stanley Tucci in "3 Lbs") playing the part of the misanthropic, sarcastic rule-breaker who's too good at the job to fire.

FOX's "Bones" has never exactly been a "House" clone — Temperance insults people not because she's a jerk, but because (it's implied) she has Asperger's — but it debuted in the wake of "House" and was tagged early on as "House, FBI." Now, though, longtime "Bones" showrunner Hart Hanson has a new series — "Backstrom," which debuts tonight at 9 on FOX — that's impossible to view as anything but "House, P.D.," even though its origins lie on another continent.
