Critic reviews for Rebecca

The Jimmy half of Better Call Saul is very good, sure. But the Mike half of Better Call Saul feels like the onset of a panic attack.

The nuances that come out thanks to the show's quiet and measured approach end up truly elevating each scene, as we wait to see just how bad things are going to get.

The big problem is that the central storyline simply isn't going anywhere interesting and is taking too long (not) getting there.

Better Call Saul is one of the best dramas on television because it has no obvious heroes and villains, no one to really root against. (Well, Tuco is pretty much a textbook villain, but everyone else, even Nacho, defies easy categorization.)

The focus on Kim and Chuck without Jimmy in their scenes allowed Better Call Saul to examine the impact he had on them, and made for some compelling television.

I don't expect everyone else to, but darned it, I really loved this episode of Better Call Saul... [It] cracked its knuckles and reemphasized why Better Call Saul IS one of the best programs on TV right now: its outstanding writing.
