Critic Reviews for Better Call Saul: Season 2

Audience Reviews for Better Call Saul: Season 2

  • Oct 05, 2022
    BCS's confident direction and grounded nature resumes in season 2, and while this season shares issues with the first, it remains mostly tight with sharp development of the likable lead.
  • Sep 09, 2022
    10/10 Greatest show of all time
  • Sep 05, 2022
    I thought this show was called Better Call Saul, not Better Call Ehrmantraut
  • Sep 05, 2022
    One of the best TV shows of all time - though in the first few seasons it is slow to see Jimmy evolve into Saul, and frankly the last 4 episodes of the last season should have been trashed and redone because the plot seems absurd (and it is almost like old Hollywood movies were the Production Code required that people pay for their sins), despite their bright spots. Regardless, in some ways this show outshines Breaking Bad, and gives us some incredible actors playing some great and unique characters, many of which were not in Breaking Bad. The writing and dialogue is first rate and often there are plot twists you do not expect.
  • Aug 28, 2022
    Season 2 is continuing the story of the Albuquerque lawyer, and its still peak content.
  • Aug 25, 2022
    The shows continues to differentiate itself from Breaking Bad, while still managing to tap into the Breaking Bad mindset from time to time. 10/10

    There are so many good things to say about this show, I am struggling to organize my thoughts and build a proper review, but I will give it a try. What a journey it has been... I was highly skeptical when Vince Gilligan announced he was going to make a spin-off series from his previous masterpiece Breaking Bad, the best show on television, since there's quite the history of failed prequels and spin-offs - but Vince did something else entirely.. he didn't just create the best spin off series ever made, he went big, he actually matched the genius of his former creation and gave to us yet another master class on story telling and character study. It's so insane how they managed at first to create a world that seemed that it would be specific to just Saul / Jimmy with many new characters that had no connection to Breaking Bad and slowly throughout the seasons they make the most insane references and connect the dots so smoothly and beautifully that the two shows blend in just perfectly. I dare to say that Saul's entire story might be even more tragic than Walter's, all the hard times he has been through, all the constant internal struggle, the thin line between right and wrong, we keep seeing his humanity being put to the test, a charismatic individual that we keep rooting for despite his addiction to outsmart and come out on top of everyone else, even if that means hurting people in the process. All this journey was possible not only because of its insanely good writing but all the stunning performances, specially Bob Odenkirk. There were a few episodes so tense and unpredictable that I actually felt my heart rate spiking, something no other show has ever made me feel in a long time. And Saul Goodman is right, there wouldn't exist a Walter White without him at the end of the day... The finale is slow paced but it's perfectly crafted, while you are watching it it might not seem that it was the perfect way to end, but once you reflect on it, you see that it was meticulously planned out and no other outcome fits it best. Vince, I don't know what you will be up to next, I know I will for sure see it and you already have a place in TV history.
  • Aug 22, 2022
    Not quite as great as the first season, and while it seems like nothing really happens, this season is extremely important when it comes to Jimmy's character development, and it perfectly sets up his conflicts with Chuck next season.
  • Aug 18, 2022
    It showed more of Saul's relationship with his brother and Mike's rivalry against the Salamancas. It's amazing!
  • Aug 17, 2022
    This season really starts bringing the series into the wider world of breaking bad. Again, some good episodes, some not-so-great episodes, but he stories are good, writing is good and characters are much better this season
