T-Meter Title | Year
4/5 89% Better Call Saul: Season 1 - Marco (TV Episode) I feel a little sentimental writing this, having just finished "Marco," an episode that I think in certain places was meant for sentimentality yet, in other places... flew so righteously in the face of sentiment that it sometimes seemed almost cruel. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

3/5 96% Better Call Saul: Season 1 - RICO (TV Episode) As an actor, Michael McKean has a natural arrogance that I find endearing; he seems to putter above his scenes as though he were in a hurry to get back to his book. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

2/5 92% Better Call Saul: Season 1 - Bingo (TV Episode) I hope we're done with the Kettlemans; the show is better than them. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

4/5 100% Better Call Saul: Season 1 - Five-O (TV Episode) As vivid as the story's scenes are - the cop bar, the empty alley, the cop's gurgling plea as Mike raises the gun to his face - I never quite feel like I leave that room in Albuquerque, with Mike on the couch, unburdening himself in real time. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

95% Better Call Saul: Season 1 - Hero (TV Episode) Jimmy's not a hero, he's a scam artist, but the show puts us in the hard seat of wanting him to win anyway. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT
