Critic reviews for Talk

It's rare that an episode of "Saul" feels like it's treading water, and while there are some fascinating moments in this installment, it's definitely laying groundwork for the future, rather than offering its own momentum.

Both Jimmy and Kim went to great lengths to avoid their feelings. But there's inevitably heartache ahead.

The Kim subplot gets perhaps the least amount of time here, but as usual, Rhea Seehorn sells it beautifully. The steely look she shoots at the judge is powerful, and just the way she carries herself is riveting.

Better Call Saul continues to project confidence as it rolls ever closer to its parent show. The more that the stakes stand on their own, the more recognizable the show becomes.

"Talk" exponentially increases the ominous vibe that can be felt surrounding all of our central characters. Like Mike, everyone appears to be bottling up all of their ugly emotions; it's only a matter of time until the floodgates open.

Nacho's arguably in the most immediate peril of all Saul protagonists, and tragically he's also the most sensitive.
