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.

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…

[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…

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

Oct 7, 2019 | Full Review…

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

Nov 28, 2017 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

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

Sep 17, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Dec 26, 2017 | 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.

Audience Reviews for Better Call Saul: Season 3

  • Nov 17, 2019
    It's getting to be Breaking Bad levels of good. 10/10
  • Nov 04, 2019
    Wow! Season 3 is where Better Call Saul finally gets GREAT! It finally introduces Gus and sets Jimmy on the path to becoming Saul. I can't wait to watch season 4. This show is finally becoming more like Breaking Bad.
  • Oct 11, 2019
    Truly a classic series that must be seen.
  • Oct 04, 2019
    Much like its first season, Better Call Saul's third season also drags quite a bit toward the beginning and mostly corrects itself (especially the emotionally powerful ending that is sure to hit you like a ton of bricks), even if it's not as good as its debut season.
  • Sep 13, 2019
    Deeper, Darker, Faster, Drug-ier and becoming unsettlingly more and more familiar, BSC's third season is its best yet, with a gripping, layered plot, a tour-de-force ensemble (Mr McKean take a bow!) and the welcome introduction of some familiar faces--- we can only imagine we're this is going!
  • Aug 27, 2019
    Dang it, Netflix, with that kind of cliffhanger how can I not watch season 4? Here's hoping that it'll be released on Netflix soon. Thoughts: Jimmy's story is interesting (again), Mike's story is meh (again), and the only cameo that made me smile was Huell. Nacho, to my surprise, actually has some really stand-out moments near the end of the season, and I can't wait to see what he does in season 4 (might be a spoiler, but it probably has to do with Gus Fring, whose role this time around isn't nearly as compelling as it was in BrBa). The lawyer and courtroom-related scenes this time around are the best of the series, and the dynamic between Jimmy/Saul and Chuck is the best part of the show, plus Jimmy's film student colleagues provide some nice comic relief. Overall the show has yet to disappoint, with amazing character work and appealing presentation.

    Better Call Saul Season 3 is literally a non-stop thrill ride. Such an achievement for a very slow paced show. It's two titular characters butting heads is so good!
  • Jul 08, 2019
    this season is better and faster with the introduction of gus it really starts to pick up
  • Jun 29, 2019
    Jimmy and Mike take steps to become the corrupt but memorable character we will see in the future, all wrapped up in a fantastic season 3.
  • Nov 02, 2018
    Gilligan and Gould are reaching higher levels here. The script is greater, the characters are greater and complex, the actors are looking for Emmys (Rhea Seehorn is astonishing) and the show is flying higher than expectation.
