In showing us one individual's preordained moral downfall, Better Call Saul spent Season 4 demonstrating how a hypocritical criminal justice system can ensnare a whole class of people for life.

Better Call Saul is telling a smaller story, yet - for better and less-better - it feels like it just got started.
August 7, 2018
Old dynamics flip, long-gestating character studies pay off, and feelings geyser up in surprising places.

What a sad and beautiful show Better Call Saul is. It's a lament for squandered human potential that's too cool to ever use a word like "lament," and a portrait of actions and consequences that goes far beyond simplistic finger wagging.

It's fascinating to watch all of this emotional, character-driven drama unfold against a backdrop of a battle for power in the drug trade in New Mexico... Nothing feels perfunctory or thrown away on this show, even the smallest details.

The scenes should be drab, but the work is so lovingly filmed that you come away convinced that making a Classic Roll would feel like a consummate human achievement.

The transformation of Jimmy McGill's into Saul Goodman is proving to be a much more exciting journey than I ever expected. [Full Review in Spanish]

What an amazing show it has become. It now has a sense of self that puts it above almost everything else on television.

If you've been a fan of Breaking Bad and found the official prequel nothing like the mother show, especially its titular character, well, things have been changing and changing fast.

Like Wile E. Coyote pursuing the Road Runner, Jimmy McGill doesn't realize he's falling from a high cliff. Unless until he looks down. [Full review in Spanish]

Why did Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan make a Breaking Bad prequel show about secondary Breaking Bad characters? Because they are really, really good at doing it.
October 10, 2018
Yet I loved the way the series slowly shifted its focus so that in some ways, its true protagonist is Kim, the character who still has a chance to escape the rapidly decaying orbit Jimmy finds himself trapped in.
October 10, 2018
It's no longer in the shadow of Breaking Bad. Instead, Better Call Saul has taken it's rightful place as one of the best dramas on television.

Every episode seems like a calling card film for some aspiring director-the cinematography and the art direction are labored-over in a way that's rare in the movies now.

Saul Goodman is simmering. And that's why his series is so good. [Full Review in Spanish]

As the series' fourth season inflicts real tragedy upon its characters, it's a catalyst for listlessness-and in Better Call Saul, idle hands are the Devil's workshop in BCS and everyone's open for business.
August 24, 2018
It is a fascinating profile of interesting characters, now offered to us again on an interesting plate of dark consciences.
August 23, 2018
They have a pretty good sense of when to give the candy, and when not to, and I don't think they'll overplay their hand. It also makes me appreciate a character like Nacho...
August 14, 2018
Given the inventive skills of Gilligan and Gould and the marvelous playing by Bob Odenkirk as Jimmy...I remain just as hooked now as when it began over three years ago.
August 13, 2018
And for me, for whatever reason, this is as good as it all gets. Not just TV as the new novel, but as something far beyond.
