Saul goes full Breaking Bad in an exciting, emotional episode that proves "Quite a Ride."
For an episode in many ways light in action, "Quite a Ride" was an emotional journey that not only moved things forward a great deal, but also maintained the beginning-of-the-roller-coaster thrill that's been one of "Saul's" most exciting qualities.
It's never been clearer that Michael McKean and Bob Odenkirk were perfectly cast as Better Call Saul's McGill brothers.
I do not assume that Kim's good intentions will not also get the best of her. I hope not, because while Breaking Bad was ultimately a tragedy, I still hold out hope that Better Call Saul is a hero's journey for Kim and hopefully for a flawed Jimmy.
This show is humming along like a freight train, gliding effortlessly yet with unmistakable power from moment to moment, scene to scene, sequence to sequence, character to character, episode to episode.
It's all good, man! Better Call Saul is creeping up on the events of Breaking Bad.
Jimmy's at the chrysalis stage of his transformation into Saul, and I'm pretty certain it's in season 5 we're going to see him emerge from the cocoon, a day-glo butterfly with a flop sweat.
The shiny purple shirt Saul was wearing in that opening scene: It was just so Saul, wasn't it?
Director Michael Morris finds new and vibrant ways to make the moment cinematic, complete with neon reflections in puddles and plenty of trunk shots, with Jimmy revealing his wares to potential customers.
The first episode of Better Call Saul to genuinely feature the title character... I got chills realizing where and when we were in that scene.
Yet again, Rhea Seehorn, as Kim, delivers the most psychologically intriguing performance in the show.
