Audience Reviews for Better Call Saul: Season 5

  • May 15, 2022
    My review for season 2 said "there's zero hiccups in the quality. There's zero parts of the show that feel rushed or nonsensical, which is saying a lot compared to most TV shows. But at the same time, it's not laugh-out-loud funny or heartbreaking or anything. Just 100% decent the whole way through." I still think that's true. But I do feel a little more invested now, this deep into it.

    My absolute favourite TV series of all time. BEST SEASON YET! Better than breaking bad imo. Hilarious, witty, brilliantly acted and beautifully written. Couldn't recommend more.

    Absolutely the best thing on television
  • Apr 19, 2022
    Better Call Saul continues to impress with a stellar cast portraying lived-in characters, not to mention writing and direction that keeps viewers at the edge of their seats in a way not seen since this show's predecessor. By season five the ground is moving so quickly that even its pacing feels like Breaking Bad now and the end of each episode beckons the viewer to hit that "next episode" button. The fact that Gilligan is one of America's greatest contemporary storytellers simply cannot be overstated.

    Best season yet. Just like breaking bad, it improves in every aspect as it goes on. Specifically the characters and relationships (Kim and Jimmy).
  • Apr 18, 2022
    Excellent show, as good as it gets really. It's so refreshing to watch a how that is not pushing the current narratives that are destroying the country. There is hope yet! Thank you Vince and Sony.
  • Jan 17, 2022
    Excellent! Must watch TV!
  • Jan 15, 2022
    Strong Breaking Bad season 4 vibes, and I'm super hyped to see how this show compares in its final season
  • Dec 04, 2021
    Unique! The best tv serie ever, and I'm not exaggerating!
  • Nov 30, 2021
    I don't know how you can make a better sequel to a television show than this... This show just keeps getting better and better with every new season, and I can't wait for how the final season will wrap all of this together. A+++
