Hello, my darling readers!
Although I binged this season of Better Call Saul right when it came out, it took me forever and a day to find the time to write this review. Well, it’s finally here!
The Plot (according to Rotten Tomatoes):
In season five of the critically acclaimed drama, Better Call Saul, Jimmy McGill’s decision to practice law as “Saul Goodman” creates unexpected and profound waves of change throughout Albuquerque’s legal and illegal circles. Kim Wexler finds herself at a crossroads as her connection with Jimmy deepens. Wracked with guilt and regret, Mike Ehrmantraut hits rock bottom. Meanwhile, Nacho Varga tries to survive as Gus Fring’s covert war on the cartel becomes a life-and-death chess match with the mercurial and relentless Lalo Salamanca.
This. Was. So. Good.
Better Call Saul never ceases to amaze me with how intricately everything is thought through and how well the actors deliver their parts. I can’t praise Bob Odenkirk and Rhea Seehorn enough for their performances. Without them, this show wouldn’t have worked so well!
It’s no surprise that so far, no season has a rating lower than 97% on Rotten Tomatoes. The characters are complex and undergo development that is well written and relatable.
The story progresses slowly but the pace fits the show perfectly. In this season it feels like we’re inching closer to the abyss although you can tell, that they aren’t finished telling the story.
Honestly, there is nothing bad to say about either this season or the show in general. It’s one of the best spin-offs I’ve ever encountered, and I really hope they can keep up the level of sophistication they’ve got going right now.
Another brilliant season that is thrilling and captivating. The only way to watch is to binge and then be sad that you’ll have to wait forever for the next one.
