Better Call Saul Season 5 reviews are out and most of the critics are praising the AMC show which originally started as Breaking Bad spin-off. While the prequel started as light entertainment, it took various twists and turns in between and is now one of the most heartbreaking shows. At the heart of Better Call Saul’s fifth season, we finally see the transformation of Jimmy McGill into Saul Goodman.
Been immersed in the Better Call Saul world for multiple projects this week and I'm just going to say it: Somehow the quirky prequel has blossomed into an epic morality play. And I… I think it's now a better TV show than Breaking Bad.

The innocent lawyer who just wanted his license to practice has slowly turned into a con man who just wants to make money and doesn’t care even if someone dies in the process. Better Call Saul is now becoming a better TV show than Breaking Bad. Here are the brief Better Call Saul Season 5 reviews along with details on premiere date and episode schedule.
Better Call Saul Season 5 Reviews: Saul Goodman is Here to Steal the Show
Better Call Saul Season 5 starts immediately where the fourth season ended, Jimmy McGill cries out his heart in front of a judge to get re-instated as a lawyer. But the whole mea culpa was just an act and Saul Goodman takes over from this point, setting up a new legal name and gathering new clients. The process of Saul Goodman getting popular starts at this point where he’ll do anything to expand his business reach.
While Saul offers a 50% discount to non-violent offenders if they call him first, most of his clients are bad guys, murderers, drug dealers, and thieves. After the death of his brother Chuck, Jimmy no longer care about being a better lawyer, all he wants now is to rise up in this field. Better Call Saul season 5 shows the real difference between Jimmy McGill and Saul Goodman, and in terms of storytelling, the show gets very closer to the events of Breaking Bad.
