This is it, ladies and gents. The first season of Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul has come to an end. It may have its issues, but they’re not important because the show has ended on a high, and that’s what we all wanted. It’s been a very up-and-down experience watching this show; more often than not, it was utterly great. The performances were terrific, the writing superb and overall it just made for great entertainment, but then at times it suffered pacing issues and boring plots. That was why there was a certain degree of fear approaching this season finale, but luckily, there was nothing to worry about.
The finale did yet another great job with its aesthetics, especially the lighting. The scene with Marco and Jimmy was perfectly dark, adding a great tone and atmosphere to the unfortunate event that would follow. The montage halfway through of Jimmy and Marco ripping people off was fantastic; the blue tint on the characters, the music, the dialogue. It was so enjoyable, and made a nice change from the generally slow-paced talking scenes that had preceded it.
Well, despite not feeling like a finale, Better Call Saul has ended on a high, and hopefully it’ll be even better when we come back to it next year.
