Critic reviews for Marco
Jimmy's decision to abandon all his original ambitions and principles ultimately feels like a massive crisis of faith - one we know Jimmy will never really recover from.
It was a dark conclusion to a series that had blended comedy and melodrama with unusual acuity. But Better Call Saul had earned its starkness, the Coen brothers-esque madcap trimmings never fully obscuring the sadness in Odenkirk's eyes.
It took him a lot longer than I had expected, but Saul has finally arrived.
Jimmy's transformation into Saul Goodman has begun, and Better Call Saul probably has a long life ahead of it.
A series of set-pieces designed to bring us further into the desperate world of Odenkirk's Jimmy McGill, this episode succeeded in making viewers want to know more and more about this character.
