Yeah, I was busy at the time. So before it all slips my mind…
When I was a bit impatient with this show earlier in the season, I wrote that co-creator Vince Gilligan had earned the benefit of the doubt. It’s nice not to be wrong.
The creators and the show and starting to pull the threads together, resulting in what may have been the most satisfying episode of the season.
This episode illustrates the show’s central dilemma quite well.Â
After five episodes, the creators of Better Call SaulÂ finally called in their not-so-secret weapon: Mike Ehrmantraut.
Uneven as it was, and deliberately so, I actually liked this episode.
This one made me like the last episode more.
As this is the story of how Jimmy McGill became Saul Goodman, each episode is supposed to add a piece of the puzzle.
If nothing else, Jimmy McGill has fine taste in 1970s films.
I have greeted the premiere ofÂ Better Call Saul with a mixture of anticipation and doubt. The reason for the anticipation is obvious, given my love for Breaking Bad, but part of me has wondered whether series creator Vince Gilligan’s trip into the past was the best use of his talents.
