Better Call Saul (AMC) Review - "A Total Snoozefest"

This was a total snoozefest. I am a fan of the Breaking Bad spin-off, but the premiere let me down. Better Call Saul usually moves at a slower pace than most shows, so I never expect for any of the episodes to be action packed. But there was nothing, I mean NOTHING going on worthwhile. Season 3 picks up where Season 2 ended. Chuck, Jimmy's brother, recorded him confessing to a felony. He plays the recording for Howard Hamlin, but Howard believes the tape is useless in a court of law. Chuck believes that he has a use for it (but never says). Next we have Mike, who is still out in the middle of nowhere with his car horn soundin off. He cuts it off and notices a note on his car that says "Don't." He was going to use his sniper rifle to kill Tuco, but now he has to cancel that and flee the area. He wants to know how someone knew where he was, so he goes to a junk yard and strips his car apart. After taking his car completely apart, he finally finds a tracking device. Mike decides to get set a trap. He goes home and finds the same device on his other car. Mike sets a trap. He replaces the device with a tracker of his own. Late one night, a mysterious person comes to retrieve the device. Mike turns on his tracker and follows the guy (The End). Like I said, nothing happened. After watching all of the promos for this season, I knew that Gustavo was going to be introduced. I assumed that he was going to be in the premiere, but since he wasn't, I really hope that he makes his entrance in episode 2.

Season 3 Episode 1


Jimmy and Chuck's relationship deteriorates. Kim feels the pressure of running her own firm. Mike investigates the note left on his car.

    The show moves at a glacial pace …. I LOVED Breaking Bad, but I’m about ready to give up on Saul … Jimmy isn’t even the most compelling character on the show – that would be Mike.
    I’m three episodes into this season, and frankly, not a one of them has been memorable … I’m tired of waiting for something to happen !!!!!!!!!!!! I’ve been waiting two and a half seasons and this show hasn’t delivered yet.
    This Monday I will give you ONE more chance …. otherwise – I may, or may not, catch a few episodes on Netflix in three years.

      I’m hoping that it picks up. I wish the writers would have kept Jimmmy in the courtroom getting crooked people off. Similar to what he did with Nacho. If he had a new case every week then the show would be better.
