Better Call Saul is a show about how we become agents of our own destruction, in large part because of where we choose to store our treasure, which is to say, find our meaning.
We already know Bob Odenkirk's Jimmy will become a lawyer so amoral it's played for laughs. And with that knowledge in place, Better Call Saul can tell a deeper story: the hows and whys of the journey, rather than the destination.
Saul does more than shake off the spin-off curse of contempt-breeding familiarity and diminishing returns -- it becomes a singular, slow-motion tragedy, a car-wreck that takes its time getting to the inevitable carnage.
Whatever way you position it, Better Call Saul is terrific TV, and it's starting to give Breaking Bad a run for its drug money.
So far, though, Saul has mastered that chemistry, holding up the legacy of its sire while carving out its own distinct footprint as the writers dole out story in tightly measured doses.
Audience Reviews for Better Call Saul: Season 3
I'm not a fan of Bob Odenkirk's raspy voice. Sorry. Annoys the crap out of me. Having written that Jimmy McGill, Odenkirk's character, (before becoming Saul) is becoming one of television's most provocative characters.
The third season of Better Call Saul took giant leaps towards icon TV series status after two seasons of solid, but not stellar, storytelling.
It's as if the first two seasons were part of a long act one. Now this third season propelled us into act two with sizzling set-up for the Saul Goodman years.
