Critic reviews for Slip

If you'd told, I dunno, basically anyone that the Breaking Bad prequel would be in large part about one of the guys from Spinal Tap dealing with electromagnetic Morgellon's, and that you'd give a s---, you'd have been laughed out of the room.

For everyone this week, things are clearly coming to a head, and over the past two seasons we've learned that Episode 9 tends to be when the ka-boom happens. Brace yourself.

"Slip" was certainly an exercise in power shifts, and it's fascinating to watch Chuck become more sympathetic as Jimmy slips further into Saul.

Better Call Saul doesn't miss a beat. There's no such thing as a wasted moment, which has never been more evident as it is in "Slip."

If I didn't know better, I'd say we just watched Saul Goodman take his first case.

It's not where I expected the story to be at this point, but it's so satisfying dramatically that I don't much care.
