better call saul magic man review

Better Call Saul returns for its second-to-last season, and that can mean only one thing: Escalation. As the show comes closer than ever to its endgame, the happy days – if they ever existed at all – of Jimmy McGill are about to come to dry up completely. Season 4 concluded with Jimmy regaining his law license and immediately heading off to change his name to Saul Goodman. The season 5 opener, “Magic Man”, picks up right at that moment – after a check-in with our old pal Gene, that is.

For the last two seasons, Peter Gould has taken over as showrunner on Better Call Saul. While Vince Gilligan wrote and directed El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, his co-creator Gould has handled the origin story of Saul Goodman, from his early days as Jimmy McGill to his future as Gene Takovic in witness protection in Nebraska.

At the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, AMC announced Better Call Saul was renewed for a sixth and final season. Gould and Gilligan also revealed some Breaking Bad characters who would appear on season five of Saul. Consider this as spoiler alert if you’re trying to stay fresh before the new episodes.

After the panel, Gould spoke with /Film about spending more time with Gene, working Breaking Bad characters into the story, and how they’re thinking about ending the series. We even got into some theories about what Jimmy/Saul is doing to Kim Wexler. Better Call Saul returns Sunday, February 23 on AMC.

better call saul season 5 review

The tragedy of Better Call Saul is that we know it is a tragedy. Call it fate, or destiny, but we know that sooner or later (and in this case, sooner), Jimmy McGill will go all the way to the dark side and become Saul Goodman. The same Saul Goodman we met in Breaking Bad – a sleazy, shady, unlikable lawyer willing to bend or break the law if need be, consequences be damned.

Over the course of four seasons, Better Call Saul has made this inevitability all the more heartbreaking by showing us that deep down, Jimmy McGill isn’t such a bad guy. In fact, he could’ve been a really good guy – if only he hadn’t made some bad choices. Now, as Better Call Saul enters its penultimate season, Jimmy is in full-blown Saul mode. Which means it’s only a matter of time before it all comes crashing down.
