Critic reviews for Switch

Jimmy McGill hasn't fully evolved into Saul Goodman yet, but he's well on his way.

In the world established by Better Call Saul, the eventual bluster of Saul Goodman is nothing to look forward to-it's a sign that restraint has failed and chaos is coming.

There were few clues in 'Switch' as to how things will proceed. Though it was obviously a hoot to resume acquaintances with Jimmy, Kim and Mike... the opening hour of the new series was essentially a very elegant holding pattern.

Switch is ultimately a quiet episode that lays a lot of track for weeks to come, but while it doesn't shout, there are so many lovely moments to consider, especially when it comes to Kim and Jimmy.

Gilligan's callbacks were pretty in-your-face for "Switch", and that made watching it even more enjoyable than anticipated. Season 2 is off to a hell of a start.

Yes, Jimmy's certainly a grifter... but he's also a begrudgingly loving brother, a hopeful lover, and a pretty decent lawyer. But most of all in "Switch", the season two premiere, he's utterly and completely lost.
