Spoilers for end of season 2 and beginning of season 3

Better Call Saul is a prequel series to Breaking Bad, both series created by Vince Gilligan, that follows the protagonist Jimmy McGill, played by Bob Odenkirk, and his rise to becoming the crooked lawyer he is known to be in Breaking Bad as Saul Goodman.

The cast does a fantastic job when it comes to acting like a real family. Bob Odenkirk and Michael McKean—who portrays Charles McGill—both do an excellent job portraying their McGill brothers’ estranged relationship. Slowly throughout the series, you get to see their happiness and the bond of two brothers break throughout the show into jealousy and not believing in one another. The greatest part of their relationship is when Charles tells the court everything that puts Jimmy in the wrong. Then Jimmy cleverly destroys Charles legitimacy by unveiling an illness he has, and doing so got Jimmy off the hook in court, finally destroying the McGill family.

The start of season three starts off with Jimmy McGill being sent to court by his brother, Charles ‘Chuck’ McGill, for breaking and entering Chuck’s house and destroying a recording of Jimmy confessing he tampered with a court case. While this is happening Mike Ehrmantraut, an associate of Jimmy, begins to make business with a shady chicken franchise owner, Gus Fring. The plot now begins to make connections to characters and how one and another met before the events of Breaking Bad.

Better Call Saul is a great show to watch before you watch Breaking Bad or even after as each season shows the development of a character’s backstory. I recommend this show to those that are into crime thrillers, a good story, and action. Although, there isn’t much action in the beginning of the two seasons, any action that shows up on screen always ends up being a great scene.
