Better Call Saul

Gilligan and Gould were no mistake, no fluke, no exception, and this is a fine example for it. The creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, are pulling off something I have never seen happen and work, certainly not to this scale. One of the rare and some might even argue only spin off that triumphs, this series runs on merit, not resuming the clock but starting where it should, where all should, from the very beginning. Intertextuality, something that every spin off has dipped its toe in, is not even touched in here. And that's a fair conclusion considering whenever it is used, it was never commercial or a campaigning strategy but a part of narrative.

Among many things that this series will zap you with, if you are coming from Breaking Bad, the major one, is the body count. To a show that was built on gradually showcasing the skills, the finesse, the threat and the terror, step by step, the creators have wiped out the entire history- or future to be precise- from the memory. Yes, the structure is similar but that's not a signature mark that they are clinging on but an ingenious way of storytelling.

Also, what's to be noted and learned, equally, is the way they glorify the character's habit or behavior as a sign of communication that latter turns out to be the headline of the news. In the previous show this was done, since the cinematic aspect of the plot called for it, but this drama is treated with those same morales, thought provoking tantalizing elements that grows on you even after you leave the screen. Plus, they aren't obsessed on connecting the dots, the makers are well satisfied, busy and competent with their own world, where Odenkirk hails charge on others after being properly challenged by each supporting cast who would yell out any advice other than suggesting that you Better Call Saul.

And the partner has changed just as the intention has. But this time the partner pulls our protagonist to a lighter side by diving into the pool for one last time. And the hustle is less of a hustle but a love date. Speaking about his true self Odenkirk puts the "good" back in Goodman in this exotic vacation.
