Critic Reviews for Off Brand

Mando's deeply conflicted feelings towards the business - especially when Don Hector decides to incorporate Nacho's father's upholstery company into the cartel's operations - were beautifully set up here. The question now is how it's going to play out.

It's dotted with devastating writing, for starters.

"Off Brand", the sixth episode of Better Call Saul's dynamite third season, finds Hector continually trying to stay in control as he makes a cup of coffee.

It's a quiet moment that underlines one of the biggest truths of the show: more than anything else, it's a tragedy. Unfortunately, it's a quiet that's slightly undermined by how loudly Breaking Bad rings throughout this episode.

The bright side? Jimmy was reminded to pull that TV ad from the air. The down side? Kim wants to fire poor Francesca, oh and she wants to sell the office for a smaller place.

As I see it, the Kim/Jimmy situation is the major drama going forward. Will their break up come this season? Sadly, I think it will.

We're headed into the final few episodes of the season in great form.

The heartless teases of the show's writing room are basically telling us: "Yeah, we're pretty committed to drawing out this whole 'Waiting for Goodman' thing. And we are amused by your impatience."

We know the the what, and even some of the why, but there's still a lot of fun to be had with the how of it all.

Regardless of what the future holds, Better Call Saul continues to be an expertly made treat even when it's light on the action.
