We will be eagerly awaiting Episode 8. EAGERLY.

The real action ... comes through conversation.

A lot of setups were put into place during "Expenses", and we can't wait to see how they play out.

It's a show that's pared down and precise - the pain doesn't come from the near-operatic as it did in Breaking Bad, it comes from small, simple human foibles.

We feel really, really bad actually. It's Jimmy's lowest point in the season.

May 25, 2017 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

With a fault line forming between Kim and Jimmy, Jimmy slowly giving into his anger and resentment, and Nacho ready to take a swipe at the king, it's safe to say we're gearing up for something climactic.

For now, it's sweet - if a bit corny - to see Mike bond with a possible romantic interest the way he sparks a kind of surrogate paternal kinship with Jesse Pinkman down the road.

There's good work here from the ad producing trio, from Michael Mando as Nacho and even the minor players, such as the nervy chair salesman. It all adds to the world of the series.

With familiar faces and familiar locations populating "Expenses," this episode was effective in showcasing the evolution of this show.

May 23, 2017 | Rating: 8.7/10 | Full Review…

Let's just get this out of the way: If Bob Odenkirk doesn't win an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and the Congressional Medal of Honor for his work on Better Call Saul this season, there is no justice in the world.
