Tv Season Info

In "Better Call Saul's" fourth season, Chuck's death catalyzes Jimmy McGill's (Odenkirk) transformation into Saul Goodman. In the wake of his loss, Jimmy takes steps into the criminal world that will put his future as a lawyer -- and his relationship with Kim (Rhea Seehorn) -- in jeopardy. Chuck's (Michael McKean) death deeply affects former colleagues Howard (Patrick Fabian) and Kim as well, putting the two of them once again on opposite sides of a battle sparked by the Brothers McGill. Meanwhile, Mike Ehrmantraut takes a more active role as Madrigal Electromotive's newest (and most thorough) security consultant. It's a volatile time to be in Gus Fring's employ, as Hector's collapse sends shock waves throughout the Albuquerque underworld and throws the cartel into chaos -- tearing apart both Gus and Nacho's well-laid plans. While Gus changes course, Nacho finds himself in the crosshairs of deadly forces.

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (16)

Old dynamics flip, long-gestating character studies pay off, and feelings geyser up in surprising places.

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 precision of Saul craftsmanship -- writing, direction, acting, and all the way down to craft services, for all I know -- makes this the best series on TV. And there really is no contest.

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]

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.

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]

Dec 10, 2018 | Full Review…

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

Dec 21, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

    Better Call Saul will never be like Breaking Bad, but both Tv Shows are interesting and has that touch that Vince Gilligan give us in both series. The fourth season of Better Call Saul its dark and it will get more deep in the next season.

    Better call saul > Breaking Bad
  • May 31, 2019
    Best series on surpasses even breaking bad...where these characters originated. The transformation of Jimmy to Saul Goodman is so well done you wish George Lucas would take a lesson.
  • May 27, 2019
    Great show and great cast, but season 4 was horrible. Boring, pointless, and tedious. First 3 episodes were good, then it went downhill. Relied on callbacks, winks/nods, and Easter eggs instead of plot. I hope they get back on track next season.

  • Mar 01, 2019
    Incrível! Mesmo nível de Breaking Bad. James McGill é tão complexo, profundo e humano quanto Walter White.
  • Feb 20, 2019
    The story gets better and you really start seeing the characters that you know. The different storylines are interesting and has you actually rooting for the bad guys from breaking bad.

    Needs a little more Nacho and Kim and a little less Gus
