Join the Breaking Bad universe
12 May 2020 | by st_scott-64920See all my reviews

There's a nice touch shared by both Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, the realness. I can't exactly put my finger on it, maybe it's the story itself, or the shooting technique, the performance, the light and post-production, maybe it's all above or something else. It just gives me a feeling that I'm not watch a show through a screen, but actually there with all the characters and observing them up close. It's the little details, trivial or not, that makes this show great. Apart from that, the magic of the show is that we all know exactly where the story is going, and it's not ideal. We all enjoy the ride so much, but we feel so frustrated thinking about the destination. Part of the charm comes from that very frustration.
