The highly anticipated season conclusion of the TV show “Better Call Saul” ended with season six and did not disappoint. The “lawyer” centered show is a spin-off to the popular “Breaking Bad” series that premiered in 2008 and concluded in 2013, starring Bryan Cranston and Arron Paul.
Bob Odenkirk stars as Saul Goodman, a shady lawyer that defends cartels and scams others whenever he can. Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) is the show’s moral compass; she plays a lawyer and Saul’s wife. The excellent script with a ying and yang or push-pull of morals of the contradictory relationship between the idealistic Kim and the scammer Jimmy makes for intriguing viewing—not to mention the excellent performances allowing for a wide range of emotions between the two.
There will be no spoilers here; I can say that the set designs, the unique camera angles, and the clever script followed by outstanding performances make “Better Call Saul” a hit show.
There’s no need to watch “Breaking Bad” this is a stand-alone series with seasons 1-5 on Netflix and season 6 on the AMC network. Look for possible Emmy Awards for Bob Odenkirk and Rhea Seehorn. The creators of the show are Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould.
