Better Call Saul S01E09 – Pimento

I hate it when the internet is right. As mentioned last week, there is a hypothesis bouncing around that BCS can’t possibly have too much in the line of happy moments for Jimmy seeing as he has to be forced into becoming Saul Goodman come the end of the series, so the leather bound books and rich mahogany desk are not likely to be coming his way anytime soon. That his downfall would come at the hands of his brother Chuck though, woah. By last week it seemed Continue reading The Goggle Box – Saul’s Not Good, Man

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

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!

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.

The Goggle Box – Did Better Call Saul Deliver?

Full spoilers for Better Call Saul and The Walking Dead below

Some said it was a bad move, I could never decide fully which side of the fence I sat on to be honest, but Vince Gilligan and AMC decided they would press ahead with a Breaking Bad spin off featuring the superb series’ loveable(?) sleazeball Saul Goodman as the lead. Better Call Saul takes place 6 years before the events of Breaking Bad and chronicles Saul’s rise from back when he was just lowly public defence attorney Jimmy McGill to the – ahem – lofty heights of law when he becomes Saul Goodman. Oh, and it’s really really good.
