Critic Reviews for Bali Ha'i

"Bali Ha'i," last night's episode, had much more going for it than the visit from the cousins... The hour's finest moments were way less life and death, focused on Kim, a character who's rarely been the center of attention.

Jimmy's (Bob Odenkirk) influence is clearly rubbing off on his girlfriend, as evidenced strongly in "Bali Ha'i."

We're still waiting for something really seismic to happen on Better Call Saul this season, but the caliber of execution does keep us engaged.

Season two of Better Call had stuttered through early episodes... But as the series passed halfway, the drama shifted up a gear and our reward was an absorbing hour of gonzo noir.

As it is, I find myself yet again unsure why I need to tune in next week. I will tune in next week, because Better Call Saul in idle is more interesting than just about any other show in fourth gear.

There are two other special guests, a pair of silent assassins whose appearance in Better Call Saul is likely to generate more enthusiasm than any villainous Breaking Bad cameo short of Gus Fring.

It's interesting to see, as Better Call Saul now enters the second half of its second season, how the creators seem to be running with the nuanced, beautifully played character of Kim Wexler.

Saul, "Bali Ha'i" was a noticeable and pleasant return to a faster pace.

For the second week in a row, the Mike subplot had me giddily renouncing all previous beliefs that Saul should take its damn time before introducing any more characters from Breaking Bad.

Just when I think I've nailed down the direction Better Call Saul is headed in, it subtly swerves to throw everything up in the air and somehow get even better.

Monday's episode of Better Call Saul saw Kim offered a newer, better job, gave us another reason to love Mike - as if we didn't have enough of those - and featured some of the most intense moments of the series so far.

As Better Call Saul enters the back half of Season 2, Mike's side of the story is dominating the show, for better or worse.
