Tv Season Info

Season 2 of the drama series opens with Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) declining Davis & May's job offer and deciding to leave the practice of law. As Kim (Rhea Seehorn) tries to make him change his mind, she gets a taste of Jimmy's line of work and, thrilled by the experience, takes their relationship to a new level. Meanwhile, Pryce (Mark Proksch) fires Mike (Jonathan Banks) as his bodyguard; and Nacho (Michale Mando) manages to steal information from him. In the end, Jimmy accepts the job offer, but doesn't give up his unorthodox methods of practicing law: This jeopardizes his relationship with Kim and the one with his brother Chuck (Michael McKean), partner at another firm.

Critic Reviews for Better Call Saul Season 2

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (17)

In the first two episodes of Season 2, there's every indication that they'll be able to keep a good thing going.

All of which is to say that Better Call Saul season two is not yet as gripping as season one's best episodes were. But there's plenty of reasons to bet it soon could be.

Feb 15, 2016 | Full Review…

The writing on Better Call Saul is as tight as any show on television, with every scene feeling like it has thematic or narrative purpose without being overwritten.

One of TV's best gets better.

Top Critic

Odenkirk is fantastic as Jimmy, both unctuous and charming, slovenly and sexy, able to project pathos and, a rare quality in a human or an actor, fun.

Top Critic

Better Call Saul is still avoiding the pitfalls of simply running in place. Instead, great expectations remain intact for a Season 2 that so far continues to make its mark by delivering just a little at a time.

Top Critic

Better Call Saul points the way to a new sort of TV drama-one that takes flawed characters as a given, but uses those flaws to challenge our assumptions about what "good" and "bad" even mean.

Sep 21, 2017 | Full Review…

We already know where Jimmy eventually ends up, but as Better Call Saul charts his path deeper into corruption, Gilligan's spinoff is only bound to get more addictive.

Jun 18, 2018 | Full Review…

After one mouth-watering instalment, promises to be as much fun as the first one.

Oct 16, 2017 | Full Review…

There are no lazy shortcuts here. The writing is excellent and the plot is great - all held together by a compelling array of characters.
