The following is a review of Onward — Directed by Dan Scanlon.

The following is a review of the fourth episode of AMC’s Better Call Saul, which premiered in Europe on Netflix this morning.

Hamlindigo Blue? Seriously? – The fourth episode of the first season of the new AMC-hit Better Call Saul gives us a proper introduction to Slippin’ Jimmy McGill. The secretive attorney from Breaking Bad was full-on con-man in the episode Hero, wherein we saw a great flashback – and the original nature of Jimmy.
