Better Call Saul S01E08“Rico”
I read a musing online (Reddit of course) where a BCS viewer observed what should have been obvious from the beginning – this doesn’t end well. Not that we don’t already know how Jimmy finds himself in the Breaking Bad time line but we do also know that come the end of this series that Jimmy has become Saul, a sleazy criminal lawyer who doesn’t have any apparent family or personal ties and though he may be sound financially he is a far cry from the 20 million being talked about in this week’s episode. It makes the series doubly tragic as it unfolds and with this week’s “Rico” I think we can safely say this is all going to go down horribly.

Better Call Saul S01E06 – “Five-O”

Better Call Saul take a bow. This week we were taken on a journey through Mike’s back story preceeding his arrival in New Mexico and sure enough a Jonathan Banks feature episode did anything but disappoint.

The Goggle Box – All Change For The Walking Dead

BetterCallSaulEp5

Another week, another double bill of great TV. We really are spoiled for quality entertainment on the small screen the last decade, the lingering question is when, or if, it will all run out of steam. Whilst the risk of that has heightened with seemingly every television network now producing their own “contenders” to the juggernauts, we should be set for at least a few more years of top notch TV and this week in Better Call Saul and The Walking Dead served to reinforce that. Also, in case anyone is wondering, yes there will be a season review of House Of Cards coming up in the next few weeks but I’m trying to pace it out!

The Goggle Box – Yep, It’s Addictive

Better Call Saul S01E04 – “Hero”
Four episodes in and yes, Better Call Saul is a damn fine TV show. Already it is clear that the twists and turns are just going to keep coming and escalating and the story of the rise of Saul Goodman is merely beginning. Bob Odenkirk is absolutely nailing it right now too, going above and beyond his previous portrayal of the character and he hasn’t even hit the highest highs of absurdity yet.

Better Call Saul S01E03 – “Nacho”

In only 3 episodes Better Call Saul has completely set itself out on its own while simultaneously containing the same highly intelligent writing and humour that made Breaking Bad such a great show. It is telling that after this week I may even be ready to stop referencing BB within the first paragraph of these reviews, such is the strength of BCS on its own.
