Walt and Jesse have yet another problem to deal with when one of their dealers, Jesse's friend Badger, is arrested by the Albuquerque police. They end up hiring a shady lawyer, Saul Goodman, who has a unique way of ensuring that Badger gets off with a light sentence without having to give away Jesse or Walt's identity. As Walt learns however, it may come at a very high price. Walt's brother-in-law Hank, the DEA Agent, is suffering from post-traumatic stress following the shooting in Juarez. He puts on a brave face but is having trouble just getting out of bed in the morning. Walt has some suggestions for him. Written by garykmcd

In the opening scene, when Badger and the cop are sitting on the Better Call Saul bench, some spooky things happen in the background. Specifically, a man and woman couple walk back and forth, but once they walk to the left twice in a row, and once they mysteriously appear from behind the pillar; and a man with a dog and a bicyclist disappear behind the pillar but never reappear. Also, there are a few cuts when a person walks directly in front of the camera. See more »

Now This Is What I Like!
11 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The eighth episode in the second season of Breaking Bad is an utterly fantastic episode. Nothing much happens in the action department, but there is no reason for action this time around. This episode introduces us to a slimeball sleazebag of a criminal lawyer named Saul Goodman. And oh did I love his character! Saul, who is portrayed wonderfully by Bob Odenkirk, is just truly a scumbag but man he is funny and his sarcastic jokes are very much worth watching this episode for.

In this episode, "Better Call Saul," one of Jesse's partners, Badger is arrested by the DEA and no one knows what to do. Jesse and Walt decide to hire Saul to help out, but little do they know who he is. Hank is sent back to his old job and while putting on a tough face, he is suffering from disorder related to the events that occurred in the previous episode.

Overall, such a fantastic episode and is one the best ones yet. The action isn't there, but the drama and even the comedy is definitely present. Based on the conclusion, I'm going to take a wild guess that Saul is here to stay. I think it's also pretty cool that Jesse has fallen in love. I'm eagerly anticipating what happens next. I rate this episode 10/10.
