Storyline

Jimmy decides to take the deal offered by HHM though he is saddened by what his brother did and subsequently said. He's soon back to calling the bingo numbers at a retirement home but his bitterness shows through. He heads to Chicago for a week where he hooks up with his old partner in crime, Marco. Soon, the're scamming the unsuspecting just as they did before Jimmy moved to Albuquerque 10 years ago. Before Jimmy leaves however, Marco talks him into pulling their old Rolex scam - but it doesn't go as planned. On returning to Albuquerque, Jimmy realizes trying to do the right thing has cost him dearly in the past and vows not to let that get in his way ever again. Written by garykmcd

Pierce: It can't be done.
Marco: You sure about that?

"You're like a troll under a bridge". Good old Saul Goodman.

After the brilliant ending to one of the best shows on the plant Breaking Bad the creators had a long talk of a spin-off to one of the characters from that show and that's Saul Goodman the best lawyer you could dream for. With many new shows that are coming out that got a lot of people talking well Better Call Saul was the show that I was waiting for and more excited for and after seeing all the episodes I wasn't disappointed with the show, actually it's really good.

Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman was pure brilliant and always such a joy to watch his character reaching to be the best but everything always seems to back fire on him and it get's more hard as everything seems like a challenge that he can't beat, and Bob Odenkirk cough all the stress, the hard work and the good sense of humor that we all know is Saul. Good work Bob.

Jonathan Banks as Mike stole the whole show for me as I think Jonathan Banks did one of the best performance of the year with the heartbreaking episode Five-O, well to be honest I think I named off the things I wanted to say about his performance so check out my review Five-O to know more.

The writing is the highlight of this show as Better Call Saul hasn't got exploding cars or over the top kills that wouldn't happen in real life when you think deep about it. Some people may think this show is boring with people talking and I really don't get what people are saying that, I don't go into a show expecting gun shootouts or people making cheesy one liners, no I want great writing, a good story and a show that can suck me in with all of that and this TV show dose.

If I have to find one problem with the first season is one of the episodes known as Alpine Shepherd Boy and let me get this out there this isn't a terrible episode, it was okay but I think it kind of pointless episode, just watch and you may agree or not but to me it felt fill, but besides that the rest of the episodes are amazing and truly outstanding.

Overall Better Call Saul season 1 is a solid season with great writing and acting and I can't wait for season 2.
