Storyline

Lawyer Jimmy McGill is having a hard time making a go of his law practice. He works mostly as a public defender, out of a nail salon's backroom and meets clients in coffee shops. He's nowhere near as successful as his brother Chuck, a name partner in a major law firm who currently lives at home dealing with personal issues. After two young skateboarders try to scam Jimmy in a set-up accident, he thinks he's found the perfect way to sign on to defend a possibly-rich prospective client, but nothing quite goes as planned.

Just perfection
13 July 2019 | by DyssonantSee all my reviews

It will not take too many words to comment this pilot episode. It's TV craftmanship at its highest level, on every single aspect.

Writing, acting, cinematography, direction, timing. Pure marvel. The intro black and white sequenze was astonishing, then we are immediately carried in medias res in front of a court. And fireworks begin.

Don't miss a single instant of this piece of art. And, after the whole season, get back right here and watch it again and again, and you will enjoy more and more. Well fine, Vince Gillian.
