Critic reviews for Sunk Costs
This is still Better Call Saul ... and even the BB-esque Mike half of the episode maintains the current series' unique rhythms.
It feels like we've been saying this a lot this year, but it's always thrilling to get to watch Mike at work -- the way the show reveals its faith in the viewer, by letting his plans slowly reveal themselves without explanation.
We've past the point of no return on the path from Jimmy to Saul, and the pall it casts over the show is palpable, not to mention painful.
The introduction of Gus Fring seems to be a trigger for another long-awaited plot point: Jimmy becoming Saul.
The storylines for Mike and Jimmy are both are reaching a crescendo, and it sets up for some thrilling next few episodes.
