Critic Reviews for Fifi

Some of the most carefully composed, strikingly shot, drop-dead gorgeous television of the year.

Kim hits both major highs and major lows this week, and ironically at the center of all of them is her relationship with Jimmy. We love seeing these two together, but this was the episode where we finally accepted just how bad he is for her.

It seems like every week, this show gets more confident, more daring.

Better Call Saul is at its most entertaining when taking time to indulge its wacky side. There was some meandering this week but it was as ever a joy to spend time with the future Saul Goodman and his oddball chums.

Chuck's awfulness is taking on some interesting dimensions. He and Jimmy are worthy adversaries, well matched because their differences are barely skin deep... This is war without weapons, which will do until the weapons turn up.

This week's installment of Better Call Saul starts off feeling like an episode of Breaking Bad - a slow-burn, masterful 4+ minute long take brings us to the Mexican border.

Kim and Jimmy took one step closer to professional freedom in "Fifi," and you know a show is doing something right when career decisions, resignations meetings, and late nights at a copy machine make for riveting television.

"Fifi" was another great episode of Better Call Saul and had some big moments queuing up what's to come.

Some have complained about the lethargy of this season as opposed to the first, and I'll admit even this episode had its drawn-out sequences, but if the show can pull together these stories effectively, it promises to be an ending rife with consequence.

"Fifi" was a really good episode, solidly advancing the story arcs of Kim, Chuck and Jimmy in equal measure.

Better Call Saul has demonstrated that it can still hit pretty hard emotionally despite the drastically reduced stakes, and also be a lot of fun in the process.
