I also binge-watched that entire series after it finished shooting. It
was a wild and highly enjoyable ride. I was incommunicado for a couple
of weeks. If you liked the lawyer character played by Bob Odenkirk then
I highly recommend the spinoff series "Better Call Saul". Saul Goodman
is his trade name, his real name is Jimmy McGill, a two-bit hustler who
somehow passed the bar and practices law out of the storage room of a
Vietnamese nail salon. I'm counting the days until the next season starts.
