Goofs

When sending the German construction gang home, Mike goes to a lot of effort to split them up but then spills all their routes in front of the whole group and all of them get to see the others' cars. That's not how compartmentalization works. It would have been easy to keep any one of them knowing the routes of the others and avoid leaving loose ends. See more »

Still one of the best shows on TV
24 February 2020 | by thomasgreuelSee all my reviews

At times Better Caul Saul was moving a little too slowly for my taste, but it has picked up, and the first episode of season 5 is TV at its best.

The BW intro with Gene's storyline is back and incredibly tense. It keeps me begging for more.

The episode has this mix of subtlety (in tiny reactions by Kim and Mike) and in your face moments, delivered mostly by Jimmy.

We see a lot of familiar faces, and while nothing much new happens ( a lot of strings from last season are tied up), the episode is tense and promises the Breaking Bad vibe we all long for.
