What will Jimmy do now that he’s found the Kettleman family? Read on to find out.
The official description from AMC:
Jimmy conjures up a bold plan to solicit new clients, but has to face the consequences when the scheme strains his relationships with a rival firm.
There may be a distinctly unique tone to Better Call Saul in comparison to it’s parent show, Breaking Bad, but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming a genuinely entertaining expansion. Giving great depth to Saul Goodman’s early life as Jimmy McGill, the first three episodes have delivered some breathtaking moments, with Jimmy’s brush with the criminal world only serving as a taster of how he got to where he is in Breaking Bad.
Having found the missing Kettleman family at the end of “Nacho,” Jimmy now has the task of convincing them to return to civilisation, with his life literally hanging in the balance. Having an engagingly dramatic tone, this encounter acts as a great transition point in the series overarc, as though the outcome is a little underwhelming, it sets up something much more impressive. Following this, “Hero” goes on to build upon Jimmy’s career as a lawyer, with the episode focusing on how he plans to make a name of himself, whilst sticking it to Harold Hamlin at the same time. This leads into some truly gripping moments, as though ultimately Gennifer Hutchison‘s script isn’t as impressive as the one Thomas Schnauz created in “Nacho,” it is still a wonderful addition to what’s quickly becoming a must watch series.
The cast has had a huge hand in making this such an engaging series, as though Breaking Bad’s own, Bob Odenkirk (Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman) has been the backbone in this series ascension, the accompanying cast members have also proven to be a worthy addition. Most noticeable amongst them is once again Rhea Seehorn (Kim Wexler), with the chemistry between Jimmy and Kim being tantalisingly intriguing. Patrick Fabian also continues to prove more hateable as Howard Hamlin, being a great addition to the cast. Nonetheless, it’s still Odenkirk’s performance that proves most dominant, with the passion, and comical timing being as impeccable as ever. The animosity between Jimmy and Howard also adds great intensity to this episode, with the actors conveying this perfectly.
It may only be into it’s fourth episode, but Better Call Saul is quickly becoming the must watch show on television. And with a prestigious parent series like Breaking Bad, there should never have been any doubt. Having great character development, as well as thrilling plot narrative, there has yet to be a disappointing episode, as though naturally some are better than others, all have proven fascinating.
