Critic Reviews for Better Call Saul Season 3

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (15)

Better Call Saul remains one of the most confident shows of this decade.

[It's] becoming clearer that Saul is in part about patience and fastidiousness: "the devil is in the details" elevated to mythology.

Apr 10, 2017 | Full Review…

Better Call Saul is the best drama series on TV, just as Breaking Bad was in its time.

Spectacular season that officially ranks Saul with Breaking Bad.

It's honestly weird how Better Call Saul, a show based on the premise of a halfway decent lawyer becoming a completely corrupt crook, is one of the most ethically engaged shows on television.

Mar 27, 2017 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

I liked how the show answered Chuck's recording of Jimmy being admissible in court. That made sense.

Oct 7, 2019 | Full Review…

We're now in year 3 of the Better Call Saul experiment, and the show continues its march toward becoming one of the landmark series in television history.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Better Call Saul...remains the season's outstanding drama, just as it was in its previous three seasons.

Despite knowing the destination, the journey is still incredible. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 9, 2018 | Full Review…

Better Call Saul continues to demonstrate that the forces that compel bad guys to do bad things are systemic and complex enough that good and bad may not be such useful designations in 21st-century America.

Jan 5, 2018 | Full Review…

It oozes style, it prizes substance. It's meticulously crafted and flawlessly executed.

Ratings might be down for the third season of Breaking Bad prequel Better Call Saul, but the quality remains high.

Audience Reviews for Better Call Saul: Season 3

  • Aug 05, 2020
    This show may even match breaking bad itself in terms of writing cuz every character that appears on this show is pretty intresting

    Yet again, Better Call Saul manages to improve on its last season. This is the season where we get to know a little more about the drug business, expanding on character like Nacho and Don Hector, without affecting Jimmy's main plot. I really enjoyed the final few episodes, and it was truly shocking to confirm what happened in the next season. Better Call Saul is a prime example of a prequel done absolutely right, and they intentionally make us care even more about charaters from Breaking Bad, like Mike, which makes their fate even sadder. Really excited for the fourth season.

    Season three of Better Call Saul dives deeper into its narrative as we learn more about the world in which our characters reside. In season three the story moves along nicely as some characters' relationships meet their breaking point. This season also introduces familiar faces from the series that came before it adding an extra layer of intrigue. Season three showcases several of the most tense scenes to date. In my opinion, Bob Odenkirk has his best season thus far and Michael McKean delivers a stand-out performance with one impressive scene in particular. We also get to see more of Michael Mando this season who effectively carries some really intense scenes. Season three is, yet again, another really solid season of Better Call Saul.

    "TOMA VELOCIDAD Y NO SE PARA" A estas alturas no hay duda de la identidad de esta serie de su contra parte que se convirtió en un hito de la televisión y el medio multi media en general y que no necesita de otras partes para sostenerse por si solo, parece magia, pero que aun así, siga entregando caras conocida con un enfoque diferente y que sobretodo nos de un final que fue construido y que en su conclusión y exposición solo nos aborda con una potencia emocional que es difícil no quedar impacientes por saber mas.

    It's so nuanced and layered, so tragic & hilarious at the same time. The characters are FASCINATING. The visuals are STUNNING. I don't know how this show manages to do so many things at once.

    I have no earthlies why everyone loves this show. I watched the first two seasons and barely got through them. Then I labored through the third and haven't gone back. There is nothing in the show that makes me want to. It's the definition of mediocre, or just okay. Some critics say it's better than Breaking Bad. I guess some good chronic can make a show seem that way. Man.

    Everything in seasons one and two was building to this. Chuck and Jimmy's relationship has reached a breaking point, and this culminates in such tragic and unforgettable fashion that left me stunned and in awe of the talent on display. MICHAEL MCKEAN! Does anything else need to be said? This season also features what is, to me, the most riveting and tense court room scene I've ever seen on television. Gripping, would be understating it. Each story line progresses in interesting and unpredictable ways as it all gets closer and closer to Walter White. All technical aspects of the filmmaking continue to be excellent, the writing is world class, the acting is also top-notch, and the plot gets more and more interesting with each episode. As the heroes of this tale (Jimmy, Kim, Mike, and Nacho) come to grips with a highly uncertain future, the tragic inevitability and the unforeseeable fate of these characters leaves me with four little words: I trust the writers.

    A prequel finds its ground harder, because it is overshadowed by the original, but Better Call Saul manages to step up it's game very well and being Breaking bad's prequel makes this even better. The real reason for this to be possible it's because of no other that Vince Gilligan, in my opinion the best director out there. Simply one of the best shows on tv, alongside Breaking bad, obviously..
