Critic reviews for Better Call Saul

[Homeland is] beginning to look like something less ambitious: a show that gesticulates wildly at the boogeyman of the moment while Carrie Mathison falls in and out of love with a series of romantic interests and father figures.

The last shot of the episode may not have had much of a payoff - we know Quinn's not going to die, and, even if we didn't, that would be the most infuriating way to kill of a well-liked character - but reuniting Carrie and Saul was immediately satisfying.

After several weeks of breathtaking cliffhangers, there was a bit of a lull in that department here. Still, with Quinn's state and the intrigue of Saul and Carrie working together again, there was more than enough here to leave us wanting more.

I'm glad they're depicting [Quinn's] bullet wound for what it is, since he really should have been dead when Carrie shot him in the woods. He's not invincible.

If "Better Call Saul" was any indication, more parts are sure to be added, removed, and rotated around until everything fits into one giant conspiratorial puzzle.

Homeland continues to maintain a steady pace this season as it portions out answers to some mysteries while building tension and posing new questions.
