It just sucks that he can't take care of himself before worrying about others. This Better Call Saul review contains spoilers. . Always assuming the worst of his brother and slipping further into paranoia, Chuck has hired private investigators to stay with him, expecting Jimmy to break back in and steal the tape. The only thing he's ever focused on was his clients. After Mike spends all night tracking his would-be tracker, out performing pickups all over Albuquerque, he follows him back to a familiar chicken shop.
While Kim is sweating over the details of her work, Jimmy is busy worrying about the appearance of the office. Both plans ended up working as intended, but not the way the other intended. Winking callbacks have never looked so good. They're a huge firm, they don't need that client. Not only are the demands of their clients different, but so are their methods of vetting employees. Offering plenty of Breaking Bad Easter Eggs without overindulging, more marvelous camerawork like that longshot of the bridge with the city out of focus in the background and those four drain tunnels underneath , and fresh drama that stands tall on its own, Better Call Saul shines yet again.
Jimmy and Kim hire an assistant; Mike seeks out a mysterious acquaintance; Chuck uses the law to gain an advantage over Jimmy. Even Howard was willing to let it go. However, that moment aside, Better Call Saul avoids being trite and remains revelatory in my eyes, even while skewing closer to its source material and those prequel problems.
