I was talking with some of the homies and we all agreed that everyday people, in a way, can relate to Saul better than they could Walt.
They both eventually give in to temptation in their "careers", but I feel like Sauls case is something you would be more likely to come across in real life whether it's somebody you know personally or saw on your local news.
Whereas Walt pretty much had a decent job and made his selfish decision from the jump, Saul seems like he actually tried to do the "right thing" but just flat out failed. His big bro is (was?
) a hot shot lawyer but Saul is essentially a struggling ambulance chaser operating out of the back of a nail salon
. Minus the Salon office that **** is very real for lawyers out there.
A lot of things in life you really can't control and I feel they've done a good job of showing that so far with Saul, to the point where people might be a little more understanding when he finally turns heel.
