Better Call Saul Season 1 Episode 9 Review – ‘Pimento’

8 April 2015 6:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jackson Ball reviews the ninth episode of Better Call Saul

It’s hard to believe it but the inaugural season of Better Call Saul is almost over. As we enter the show’s penultimate episode, entitled ‘Pimento’, we find the McGill brothers side-by-side, marching into the battleground of civil law.

Warning! Spoilers Ahead – You have been warned!

Following on from the developments of Episode 8, Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) and Chuck (Michael McKean) find themselves embarking on a legal battle with enormous potential, unearthing the nefarious dealings of a local elderly home.

However, before focusing on the trials and tribulations of the suit-wearing siblings, we are treated to yet more golden moments from the effortlessly cool Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks). This time around Mike is doing a ‘little job on the side’; which involves him acting as protection for a particularly hapless individual who is about to enter into an underground, drug transaction. »

When I spoke with Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould (and editor Curtis Thurber) about the show's ever-changing opening title sequence, we also briefly discussed the response to "Five-o," and Gilligan said that while they like having the ability to experiment — to do an episode where Mike is now the »

Review: 'Better Call Saul' - 'Alpine Shepherd Boy': Electric company

2 March 2015 8:01 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Better Call Saul" coming up just as soon as I'm the one with the sex toilet... "I'm on the up-and-up. I will be good." -Jimmy Jimmy spends much of "Alpine Shepherd Boy" trying to find a professional niche, and the episode itself feels like the "Better Call Saul" creative team is still figuring out what exactly the series is, beyond a showcase for Bob Odenkirk and a chance to bring so much of the "Breaking Bad" team together again. Like the series' second episode, the hour is made up of a bunch of interesting individual pieces that don't entirely feel like part of the same whole. After a prologue detailing the immediate, traumatic aftermath of Chuck's sprint to steal his neighbor's newspaper, we spend a long time on Jimmy trying to cash in on the notoriety that came with his billboard "heroics," then get an »
