Better Call Saul

In the US: Mondays, 10/9c, AMC
In the UK: Netflix. New episode every Tuesday

So before we start, let’s be clear what this isn’t. This isn’t a review for anyone who loved Breaking Bad, of which Better Call Saul is a spin-off. For starters, I didn’t love Breaking Bad, and I gave up midway through the second season. I didn’t mind it, I thought it was good, but it felt too much like hard work with not a huge amount of reward.

I don’t even really remember Saul Goodman in the original show either. All I know is what’s available in the Wikipedia article on him.

Already many of you will be getting ready to declare me “Unmutual”.

That’s fine. Because you’ll be watching Better Call Saul whatever I say and if you really need someone to tell you if the show's any good for a Breaking Bad lover or not, you can peruse any of the dozens of reviews on the Internet by people who’ve watched every single episode and have "Bitch” tattooed on each of their biceps.

No, this is a review for people who either didn't like Breaking Bad or never quite got round to watching it. Because there’s bound to be a whole bunch of you out there like me who are potentially interested in watching Better Call Saul but want to know if they’ll be lost and mystified and whether they’ll enjoy it or not. Those people need someone like me.

So with that out of the way, let’s go see if we’d Better Call Saul or not. I’d recommend reading that Wikipedia article I linked to first, though - it’ll help a lot.
