Critic reviews for Mijo

On an episode level, there's not much to say, but thanks to one misunderstanding, Jimmy is now swimming in a much larger and scarier lake of criminals than he was before. What that implies about the future is more than enough to keep our interest.

Unlike the first episode, there were no jumps into the future. We stayed steadfastly in 2002 and are now beginning to see how this new series will shape up.

After such a tense first 25 minutes, it's wise of Better Call Saul to spend much of its second half establishing Jimmy's daily routine...

What is clear even at this early stage, though, is how entertaining it is to watch Jimmy try to talk himself out of trouble again and again.

If "Uno" was "Hello, my name is Jimmy McGill," "Mijo" was "Hello, my name is Better Call Saul," and I've found it impossible to not like what we've seen so far.

As Jimmy McGill slowly turns into Saul Goodman, Better Call Saul remains just as tense and stylistically dazzling as its AMC forebearer.
