Better Call Saul was renewed for a second season before season one even aired. And now it’s time for Slippin’ Jimmy to fall back into our lives.
When we last left Jimmy McGill he was fighting a losing battle to go legit. With good intentions but a slippery (hence the nickname) past, Jimmy couldn’t catch a break, let alone a case, as he struggled to transition from charismatic con man to serious public defender, like his older brother Chuck. While his efforts were noble, Jimmy ended season one looking back in the rearview.
After a devastating betrayl from Chuck, Jimmy found more success slipping back into his old ways, on the road to his new life as the infamous Saul Goodman. If season 1 was about resisting the urge to do wrong, then Better Call Saul Season 2 looks to be all about reveling in that urge, with battle lines between brothers drawn and new and familiar friends alike waiting in the wings to get in on the action.
Here's an excerpt from our spoiler-free review of the first two episodes...
If this whole TV thing doesn’t work out, Better Call Saul showrunners Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould have a second career cut out for them as actual con artists. For even when the plot of Better Call Saul isn’t firing on all cylinders (as was the case for part of season one and a couple of points through the first two episodes of season two), the cons they’ve concocted for their main characters enacted are undeniably effective and just wonderful.
