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.

There are so many questions that remain unanswered for me, and though I understand that many disagree, I feel as though this entire season was a meandering path to a destination we knew from the start.

Ironically, this refusal to be daring is the most daring thing the show could have done.

The final moments of "Marco" tell us a great deal about what this series really is, where it's headed, and why.

A more open-ended conclusion may have felt more emotionally impactful. On the whole, though, this was a gorgeously designed and executed episode; one that leaves enough room for - what we hope will be - an equally extraordinary second season.

The first season reaches its end - and Jimmy is going into an exquisite meltdown in a bingo hall.
