Critic Reviews for Better Call Saul Season 3

Better Call Saul remains one of the most confident shows of this decade.

Apr 10, 2017 | Full Review…

[It's] becoming clearer that Saul is in part about patience and fastidiousness: "the devil is in the details" elevated to mythology.

Apr 10, 2017 | Full Review…

Better Call Saul is the best drama series on TV, just as Breaking Bad was in its time.

Apr 10, 2017 | Full Review…

Spectacular season that officially ranks Saul with Breaking Bad.

Apr 7, 2017 | Rating: A+ | Full Review…

It's honestly weird how Better Call Saul, a show based on the premise of a halfway decent lawyer becoming a completely corrupt crook, is one of the most ethically engaged shows on television.

Mar 27, 2017 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

I liked how the show answered Chuck's recording of Jimmy being admissible in court. That made sense.

Oct 7, 2019 | Full Review…

We're now in year 3 of the Better Call Saul experiment, and the show continues its march toward becoming one of the landmark series in television history.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Better Call Saul...remains the season's outstanding drama, just as it was in its previous three seasons.

Sep 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Despite knowing the destination, the journey is still incredible. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 9, 2018 | Full Review…

Better Call Saul continues to demonstrate that the forces that compel bad guys to do bad things are systemic and complex enough that good and bad may not be such useful designations in 21st-century America.

Jan 5, 2018 | Full Review…

It oozes style, it prizes substance. It's meticulously crafted and flawlessly executed.

Dec 26, 2017 | Full Review…

Ratings might be down for the third season of Breaking Bad prequel Better Call Saul, but the quality remains high.

    It just gets better and better

    Given that Breaking Bad is a masterpiece, being its prequel is a very difficult and demanding task. There are very high expectations. And yet, I'm glad to say Better Call Saul manages to be a very worthy prequel. Interesting, well-written story and very solid performance from the actors. If you liked Breaking Bad, you'll like Better Call Saul.

    This was the no return moment for Jimmy, his realtionship with Chuck gets affected by a traition. Jimmy in this season was great. Those opening escenes on every episode are wonderful. And the screenplay is perfect. 5/5

    This show may even match breaking bad itself in terms of writing cuz every character that appears on this show is pretty intresting
  • Aug 04, 2020
    Yet again, Better Call Saul manages to improve on its last season. This is the season where we get to know a little more about the drug business, expanding on character like Nacho and Don Hector, without affecting Jimmy's main plot. I really enjoyed the final few episodes, and it was truly shocking to confirm what happened in the next season. Better Call Saul is a prime example of a prequel done absolutely right, and they intentionally make us care even more about charaters from Breaking Bad, like Mike, which makes their fate even sadder. Really excited for the fourth season.

    Season three of Better Call Saul dives deeper into its narrative as we learn more about the world in which our characters reside. In season three the story moves along nicely as some characters' relationships meet their breaking point. This season also introduces familiar faces from the series that came before it adding an extra layer of intrigue. Season three showcases several of the most tense scenes to date. In my opinion, Bob Odenkirk has his best season thus far and Michael McKean delivers a stand-out performance with one impressive scene in particular. We also get to see more of Michael Mando this season who effectively carries some really intense scenes. Season three is, yet again, another really solid season of Better Call Saul.

    "TOMA VELOCIDAD Y NO SE PARA" A estas alturas no hay duda de la identidad de esta serie de su contra parte que se convirtió en un hito de la televisión y el medio multi media en general y que no necesita de otras partes para sostenerse por si solo, parece magia, pero que aun así, siga entregando caras conocida con un enfoque diferente y que sobretodo nos de un final que fue construido y que en su conclusión y exposición solo nos aborda con una potencia emocional que es difícil no quedar impacientes por saber mas.

    It's good. ‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎

    It's so nuanced and layered, so tragic & hilarious at the same time. The characters are FASCINATING. The visuals are STUNNING. I don't know how this show manages to do so many things at once.
