With the “audacious” latest episode of BETTER CALL SAUL, the show has officially cemented itself as some of the best TV of all time. However, it’s still a damn shame that more people are not watching what could quickly become as good of a series (if not better) than BREAKING BAD.
And for a good reason. There are so many players in this universe, yet somehow the creators can connect it all while also adding lore to the original BB series.
The episode title, ROCK AND A HARD PLACE, is the perfect metaphor for each main character who will have some tough decisions to make. However, the stress is felt the most through – Saul (Bob Odenkirk), Mike (Jonathan Banks), and especially Nacho (Michael Mando).
Last week I stated that BETTER CALL SAUL could masterfully put characters in situations there’s no way they can get off, yet somehow do. This week ups the stakes on that remark and the intensity.
I wouldn’t dare spoil anything that happens this week. So my only final thought is if you are watching BETTER CALL SAUL, congrats! If not, stop what you’re doing, enjoy some nachos in honor of this week’s MVP, and catch up on some of the best TV you’ll ever see.
It’s available on AMC in the U.S. or Netflix internationally.
