Better Call Saul returns with loads of color, swagger, and pitch-black humor.

Feb 19, 2020 | Full Review…

Better Call Saul is just like that proverbial dropped dessert: flavorful, chilling, its colorful sweetness melting and devoured in the unforgiving desert sun.

Feb 18, 2020 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Better Call Saul, in the early going of its fifth and penultimate season, remains the picture of white-knuckled but real restraint.

Feb 11, 2020 | Full Review…

This is why Better Call Saul is better at being a prequel than other prequels are: It understands that the tragedy of fate is baked into the story.

Feb 5, 2020 | Rating: 90/100 | Full Review…

Gould and Gilligan have turned Better Call Saul into a gripping meditation on character and destiny, and in Odenkirk they've found a leading man very nearly as compelling and complex as Bryan Cranston. It's just that he wears louder shirts.

Feb 18, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Odenkirk, as always, continues to find new things to explore about this character he's now been playing for 11 years.

Feb 5, 2020 | Rating: 9.5/10 | Full Review…

Better Call Saul is revealing itself to be a possibly even better series, and one with more nuance. In addition to the thematic complexity, the direction and execution of this series is unparalleled by anything on television right now.

What a wonder this show is. The world of TV will be worse off when it's gone

Feb 6, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

As usual, "Saul" operates with confidence and impeccable craft, sticking to its always steady pace while reminding the audience how far these characters have come, and in many cases, fallen.
