Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome to the third season of Better Call Saul.
Tonight’s season premiere, Mabel, was written by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould and Gilligan directed it.
The repercussions of Chuck’s scheme test Jimmy and Kim’s (Rhea Seehorn) fledgling law practices – and their romance – as never before. This imminent existential threat presses Jimmy’s faltering moral compass to the limit. Meanwhile, Mike searches for a mysterious adversary who seems to know almost everything about his business.
Not only is it so great to have this show back but with this episode, you can definitely feel the series coming into its’ own and doing a good job of setting up the events to come this season, one of the big things is the introduction to Giancarlo Esposito’s Gus Fring coming into the season…and possibly bringing Walter White back at some point….maybe?
The season premiere is not only a great episode that continues the story of Jimmy MacGill very well but, and I can not believe I would even say what I’m about to say but it is true, Better Call Saul is positioning itself to top Breaking Bad, which when this started, I thought it would be impossible but if tonight’s premiere episode is any indication, this show is not only going to top Breaking Bad very soon but with its’ inevitable fourth season to come, could end up becoming one of television’s greatest achievements period. But again, we have to see how the rest of the season plays out but if tonight’s episode is any indication, we are in for a great treat this year.
