Critic Reviews for Coushatta

It's the underlying unease that has always driven this show forward and made it so very relatable to its audience, despite being so specific with its world-building.

A remarkable thing in the era of "Big Moment TV," and in an episode that doesn't have a cliffhanger, where no one gets married, no one has a baby, no one overthrows a government, and no one dies...

The true joy in "Coushatta" comes from the Jimmy and Kim plotline. It unfolds with invigorating confidence, taking us on a journey with as satisfying a conclusion as this show's ever had.

There is a heightened aura of tragic inevitability surrounding Kim...

Chock-full of witty schemes, layered performances, tense showdowns, and alternating gut-busting and heart-wrenching scenes, "Coushatta" is a distillation of this show's key components and feels like a real series turning point.

We've seen a number of Saul Goodman-esque petty crime plots from Jimmy in Better Call Saul now, and this week's was the most enjoyable yet.

Saul is not The Sopranos...but it's also unsentimental at times about telegraphing the fates of characters that never quite make it onscreen in Breaking Bad...We'll find out soon enough who weathers the storm.

Giancarlo Esposito is the greatest and most underused natural resource on television.

"Coushatta" is an in-depth case study of something Better Call Saul - and Breaking Bad before it - have always known and constantly represented to us: what it means to be willing to put in the work.

Leave it to this week's installment, "Coushatta," to reverse field on what Kim wants - and, in the process, reopen all sorts of frightening possibilities for what could happen to her.
