‘Better Call Saul’ Review: Rough Times for Jimmy Are Bad News For Everyone Else
[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for “Better Call Saul” Season 3, Episode 7, “Expenses.”]

Last Week’S Review: Watch Out, World, Because Saul Goodman is Coming

Case Summary

After celebrating what felt like a victory last week, it’s now time for Jimmy to accept the consequences for his year-long suspension, which are far tougher than he anticipated. Trying to balance his required community service hours with his fledgling business as a producer and director of local commercials isn’t working out all that well — he’s running himself ragged and going broke in the process. What matters most to him is making sure that Kim has no clue just how bad things are getting… though he’s not above a petty moment of revenge against Chuck, as much as he might say that he’s moving on.

Meanwhile, we get a blast from the more-recent-than-usual past: Nacho decides to pay “Saul” Season 2’s resident prescription drug scammer/baseball enthusiast Pryce (Daniel Wormald) a visit,

Exclusive: The Impact and Legacy of ‘Law & Order: Svu’ 400 Episodes Later
On September 20, 1999, audiences were invited to explore another side of New York City, where crimes were “especially heinous.” The first spinoff of creator Dick Wolf’s successful Law & Order series, Special Victims Unit introduced viewers to a new team of “dedicated detectives” -- Oliva Benson (Mariska Hargitay), Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni), Monique Jeffries (Michelle Hurd) and John Munch (Richard Belzer), led by Capt. Don Cragen (Dann Florek) -- tasked with bringing justice for sexually based crimes.

Their stories quickly became beloved by audiences as the series not only became a ratings hit for NBC, but also earned critical acclaim -- including a historic run of Emmy nominations and wins for its guest stars -- and adoration among the many actors who passed through on their way to stardom.

“At its heart, it's a show about good versus evil,” Michaela McManus, who played Ada Kim Greylek on season 10, tells Et. “In a world that's increasingly scary and uncertain
