A look at Better Call Saul’s first season from two perspectives

13 April 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Breaking Bad was one of the most critically acclaimed series of the past few years, a lot of which had to do with the world the show created. Vince Gilligan and AMC’s proposal to revisit that world, this time with a focus on Saul Goodman, was met with both excitement and trepidation. After all, could the creative team capture lightning in a bottle twice and create something equally good? The first season of Better Call Saul seems to have put all those concerns to rest, as the ten episodes have exceeded expectations, delighting fans of Breaking Bad by expanding the story without taking anything away from what came before.

But how did the show play for those who haven’t seen Breaking Bad? Does the series work as effectively for someone unfamiliar with the world of Albuquerque, New Mexico as seen through the lens of Gilligan and Co.? And »

Recap: Old Habits Die Hard in the "Better Call Saul" Season One Finale

7 April 2015 7:20 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

When Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) recalls his harrowing tale of perpetrating a textbook "Chicago Sunroof", the full picture snaps into place. Who Jimmy was, who Jimmy is, and who Jimmy will be is all suddenly so, so clear. The most important thing Peter Gould's script and direction do throughout this final hour of "Better Call Saul" as the first season comes to an end, is raise the stakes. The plot of this particular episode isn't as figuratively or literally explosive as its precursor, and nothing overly outrageous happens in this hour. Yet, somehow, we are still on edge as we watch Jimmy move through his post-brother life. The cold open reminds us again of Jimmy's arrest, the one we see Chuck (Michael McKean) bail him out of earlier in the season, but importantly, it shows us the real origin of the Jimmy McGill we've seen in the past nine episodes. »

Bob Odenkirk Breaks Down the ‘Better Call Saul’ Finale (Spoilers)

6 April 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler alert: Do not read unless you’ve watched the season-one finale of “Better Call Saul.”

The season one finale of “Better Call Saul” saw Jimmy McGill turn his back on a lucrative job offer, heading off to points unknown. Bob Odenkirk talked to Variety about the fate of everyone’s favorite elder-care lawyer — and what he wants to see in season two.

Jimmy says, “I know what stopped me and it’s never stopping me again” as he drives off. What do you think “it” is?

The approval of his brother and wanting his approval. That’s what I think. It’s accepting the judgment of other people on him. Looking outside of him for clues for what’s right for you: Does it get the approval of the people around you, instead of does it resonate in your own heart?

So where is he going? Now what?

Better Call Saul Season 1 Episode 7 Review – ‘Bingo’

20 March 2015 12:43 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jackson Ball reviews the seventh episode of Better Call Saul

After the unprecedented highs of episode 6, this week’s instalment of Better Call Saul brings everything down to a slightly calmer level. With Mike’s (Jonathan Banks) back-story now firmly established, pushing the series’ main narrative is the ultimate goal of ‘Bingo’, and it does it so well.

Warning! Spoilers Ahead – You have been warned!

After last week’s brief cameo role, Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) is back in the spotlight. We see his relationship with Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) blur the lines between friendship, infatuation and professional rivalry. We also once again see those pesky, tax-avoiding Kettlemans; Betsy (Julie Ann Emery) and her husband/ventriloquist puppet Craig (Jeremy Shamos).

Betsy, still seemingly hell-bent on getting away with their fraudulent ways, has become unsatisfied by the ‘deal’ that Hamlin Hamlin McGill have laid out for her (despite it being an »

'Better Call Saul's Rhea Seehorn on Kim and Jimmy's Complicated Past: 'She Loves Him'

16 March 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Another week, another brilliant episode of Better Call Saul.

In this week's all-new hour of the smash AMC drama, the Kettlemans finally showed the full spectrum of their crazy colors and it was up to Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) to sway their allegiances back to Kim (Rhea Seehorn) and subsequently back to Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill. And he did all of this despite the awkward aftermath of Kim turning down Jimmy's offer to be partner alongside him at his booming elder law-centric firm.

ETonline chatted with Better Call Saul star Rhea Seehorn to find out more about Kim and Jimmy's mysterious past, their current relationship status, and if she should have accepted her friend's generous (yet almost naïve) offer.

‘Better Call Saul’ Q&A: Rhea Seehorn on Jimmy and Kim’s Relationship

16 March 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen “Better Call Saul” season 1, episode 7, titled “Bingo.”

One of the biggest mysteries so far on “Better Call Saul” is just what’s up with Kim Wexler? The ambitious legal eagle clearly has a history with down-on-his-luck Jimmy McGill — which causes some conflict with her boss at the powerful firm Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill — and whatever went on in the past between Kim and Jimmy hasn’t been entirely resolved in the present.

In tonight’s episode we learn that Jimmy has a secret hope of partnering up with Kim, in the professional sense, and even found some fancy office space where they could practice elder law together. But Kim has other career plans in mind, and Jimmy winds up helping her out, even though he gets the chance to steal away problem clients the Kettlemans.

‘Better Call Saul’ Turns Corner From Good Toward Greatness (Spoilers)

9 March 2015 8:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Despite mostly positive reviews, “Better Call Saul” has felt somewhat adrift, placing considerable weight on Bob Odenkirk in the early going while slowly chronicling his origins as the shady attorney featured in “Breaking Bad.” By that measure, the series took what feels like a quantum leap forward with its sixth episode, which both further cemented ties to its beloved predecessor and finally unleashed one of the show’s not-so-secret weapons that had largely been held in check.

That ingredient, of course, is Jonathan Banks, who played the taciturn enforcer Mike. Thus far in “Saul,” his role had been limited to that of a blasé parking attendant, interacting with the central character in the most banal (if frequently amusing) of ways.

All that changed, however, in Monday’s episode (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched), which delved into Mike’s backstory – explaining what brought him from the Philadelphia police »

Better Call Saul Review: “Nacho” (Season 1, Episode 3)

16 February 2015 11:15 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Much of network and cable television drama is filmed with a variety of close-ups, medium shots and medium close-ups. The third hour of Better Call Saul eschews the standard approach, often shooting the rumpled protagonist from a distance, low angles and overhead shots. As the diverse cinematography hints, we’re still trying to get a grasp of who Jimmy McGill is from a variety of angles. One thing remains true though: he is proving to be just as captivating a protagonist as Breaking Bad fans could have hoped.

At the end of last week’s “Mijo,” Jimmy desperately tried to evade Nacho’s plan, a coup to scam the embezzling Kettlemans out of the more than $1.5 million they allegedly stole, with this handy one-liner: “I’m a lawyer, not a criminal.” As the first scene from “Nacho” depicts, Slippin’ Jimmy was closer to the latter than the former.

Review: 'Better Call Saul' - 'Nacho': I'm at a payphone, trying to call home

16 February 2015 8:04 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Better Call Saul" coming up just as soon as I do the sex robot voice... "I'm no hero." -Jimmy I really enjoyed the first two hours of "Saul," but "Nacho" is the first installment to suggest an actual structure for the new show. We get a story to keep Jimmy occupied for the whole episode, which is resolved on one level even as it's setting things up for future stories with Jimmy getting a look at all the cash the Kettlemans stole. And it's a whole lot of fun from beginning to end. Though Jimmy protests his good guy bonafides, it's worth noting that most of the trouble he gets into here — and, for that matter, that he nearly got himself into with Tuco last week — came from him exercising a conscience that will mostly lie dormant by the time he's Saul Goodman.

Who knew that Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) and Mike (Jonathan Banks) would find common ground this quickly? And, in particular, so soon after Mike rubbed Jimmy's face into the concrete for disrespecting him?

‘Better Call Saul’ Premiere: Meet Jimmy McGill’s Love Interest

6 February 2015 9:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

AMC’s “Breaking Bad” prequel “Better Call Saul,” which premieres Sunday night, introduces a new cast of characters into Jimmy McGill’s world — including Kim Wexler, a lawyer at a prominent firm in Albuquerque. Actress Rhea Seehorn calls it a “dream job.” In fact, she was so excited to be cast that when the network told her she couldn’t reveal her character’s name, she thought they were telling her she had to change her own name — and nearly agreed out of enthusiasm.

Seehorn talked to Variety about working with series star Bob Odenkirk, her character’s romance with Jimmy, and what “Breaking Bad” fans can expect.

Did you have any trepidation about joining the cast? 

I got to set and the whole crew was the same crew from “Breaking Bad” — they were all there with “Breaking Bad” hats and shirts and mugs and wearing them with pride. I »

Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) when AMC's new spinoff series Better Call Saul debuts with the series premiere "Uno" on Sunday, February 8 at 10 Pm Et.

Rhea Seehorn: Better Call Saul is Very Much its Own

Entertainment Weekly caught up with Rhea Seehorn, who is starring in Better Call Saul. They ha the dying question on if the prequel was truly stand alone for those never saw Breaking Bad. Now it seems like we know that while we have heard conflicting info, the show will be very much one of its own. Here is what Rhea explained to them where it all fits together.

It’s definitely Better Call Saul season one, not Breaking Bad season six, which I think is a good thing. That’s coming from someone who is a huge Breaking Bad fan. I am now watching it for the third time. Given that, there’s treasures to find if you know the history of Breaking Bad. There’s definitely, oh, I’ve seen that person, and very interesting recurring things, like location, Albuquerque. Underlying the whole thing is its DNA: Vince and Peter, »

Do you need to watch 'Breaking Bad' before 'Better Call Saul'?

Those who have watched and loved Breaking Bad are likely plagued with a question going into its origin series, Better Call Saul: Can Saul live up to Vince Gilligan’s magnum opus? In contrast, those who haven't watched Breaking Bad (shame on you) are likely plagued with a question of a very different kind: Do I need to watch Breaking Bad before watching Better Call Saul? The origin series will track debauched criminal lawyer Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) in the time prior to establishing his strip-mall law office in Albuquerque. There, he eventually gives legal aid to Breaking Bad »

'Better Call Saul' Behind-the-Scenes Preview

26 January 2015 2:57 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

AMC has released a new behind-the-scenes look at Better Call Saul, which kicks off with Bob Odenkirk describing how this Breaking Bad spinoff came to be. Creator Vince Gilligan first approached the star while they were working together on the set of Breaking Bad, where Bob Odenkirk promised that if Gilligan wrote it, he would definitely do it. Now, just a few years later, the show is already getting plenty of critical praise, with some even calling it better than its predecessor as the prequel prepares for its launch this February.

Better Call Saul is set in 2002, six years before Saul Goodman meets Walter White. When we first see him him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is Mike Erhmantraut. This spinoff will »
