The following is a review of the fifth episode of the second season of Better Call Saul, available on AMC in the U.S. and on Netflix in Europe. Expect story spoilers. 

In the fifteenth episode of Better Call Saul (“Rebecca”), Erin is babysitting Jimmy, a familiar face meets up with Mike, and Kim tries to save her job at HHM. Rebecca is another solid Better Call Saul-episode, but I didn’t love it as much as I would’ve liked to.

In the fourteenth episode of Better Call Saul (“Gloves Off”), Mike goes on a mission for Nacho, someone gets beat up, and we see a couple of familiar faces return to the Vince Gilligan-Breaking Bad Universe.

Jimmy is slipping… In the third episode of the second season of Better Call Saul (“Amarillo”), Jimmy goes too far with the Sandpiper Crossing-case, and might irreparably damage his relation to both Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill and Davis & Main. Meanwhile, Mike is in-between jobs, as it were, and his family is calling for his help.  Continue reading “REVIEW: Better Call Saul – “Amarillo””

The following is a review of the second episode of the second season of Better Call Saul, available on AMC in the U.S. and on Netflix in Europe. Expect some story spoilers. 

World’s 2nd Best Lawyer – after, what was, a decent episode in the season opener (“Switch”), Better Call Saul delivered a must-watch episode that both tested limitations and moved the overall plot along nicely. In the second episode of the second season, “Cobbler”, Jimmy says goodbye to the infamous Suzuki Esteem, Mike goes back to help a former client, and Jimmy shows us how he decompresses after work.  Continue reading “REVIEW: Better Call Saul – “Cobbler””

REVIEW: Better Call Saul – “Switch”

Better Call Saul - Reviewed

The following is a review and ‘recap’ of the first episode of the second season of Better Call Saul, available on AMC in the U.S. and on Netflix in Europe. Expect story spoilers. 

Welcome back, Jimmy. You’ve been missed. It’s been more than ten months since the final episode of the first season of Better Call Saul aired on AMC. Better Call Saul was my favorite show of 2015, and I even loved its first season more than I loved the first season of the show that preceded it, Breaking Bad. Last year, I reviewed every single episode of Better Call Saul‘s first season, and gave a full season review – this year I plan to repeat that action completely. In the first episode of the second season, “Switch”, we learn what transpired right after Jimmy (played by Bob Odenkirk) started humming Deep Purple‘s “Smoke on the Water” in his yellow Suzuki Esteem.  Continue reading “REVIEW: Better Call Saul – “Switch””

REVIEW: Better Call Saul – Season One

Expect Spoilers

When this spin-off from Breaking Bad was confirmed to be in development way back in 2013 I had my trepidations – I didn’t think it could work, I didn’t want anyone to mess with the legacy of something near-perfect. And the universe that Vince Gilligan had created with Breaking Bad was near perfect. But I was wrong about one thing: Better Call Saul‘s first season has only strengthened the universe – strengthened my attachment to the characters.

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

As the first season of Better Call Saul draws to a close, we see Jimmy McGill return to Cicero, Illinois, meeting old friends, and perhaps being put in a corner yet again. Who knows, we might even see someone book a ticket to Belize.

Before getting to the episode discussion and review I’d just like to note how happy I was to finally see Mel Rodriguez again – who was in the episode “Hero”, and in Community a couple of seasons ago. Continue reading “REVIEW: Better Call Saul – “Marco””
