Call Saul" review by Suzanne
Airs Mondays 10/9c on AMC
This is a really good show. It reminds me a little bit of
"Fargo" on FX, but it's not as quirky as that one. The
characters are more real and less cartoons.
When I first watched the show, I thought, who is this
pathetic guy? However, then some very exciting stuff
started happening. The show kind of grabs you by the throat
and doesn't let go. It's not as violent or gory as I'd
worried it might be, too.
It's a prequel to the show "Breaking Bad" but mostly
focuses on one character, known here as Jimmy McGill (later
he becomes Saul Goodman). I never watched "Breaking Bad", so
I can't compare them, but trust me when I say you can watch
this show even if you've never watched the other. It will
still be very entertaining.
Jimmy is a sad sack lawyer who wants to be great, but he
intends up veering toward the sleazier side of the law, and
toward breaking the law instead of upholding it. He
has terrible luck and is impatient for his life to improve
the way he thinks it should.
Check it out and you won't be sorry!
