  • Reviewing TV Shows Before They’re Even Made

    The Night of the Gun (AMC) The late David Carr, the great media columnist and cultural presence at The New York Times, wrote a wonderfully honest memoir of addiction in 2008’s The Night of the Gun. AMC says its Better Call Saul star Bob Odenkirk will star in an adaptation of Gun, working with writer-producer Shawn Ryan. My first reaction to this was: No! Please no! I worry that a TV adaptation will make this material more lurid than it is in the book, especially since Ryan hasn’t displayed all that subtle a hand in often highly entertaining material like The Shield, Last Resort, and his beloved-in-some-circles cult item Terriers.

  • 'Better Call Saul' Finale: Jimmy and Mike Got Fooled

    Better Call Saul Finale: Jimmy and Mike Get Fooled One of the great pleasures of Better Call Saul throughout its second season, which concluded on Monday night on AMC, was to watch people do their work. Specifically, watching Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), his brother, Chuck (Michael McKean), and his colleague and lover, Kim (Rhea Seehorn), cull through paper-work to prepare various cases, make pitches to prospective clients, and navigate the dangerous territory of inter-office politics. While we may have expected the scene set in a hospital room to reveal Chuck in the bed—as had, after all, suffered a nasty clunk on the head when he collapsed in the copy-shop at the end of last week’s episode—the producers gave us a mild surprise by making the opening with a flashback, to Chuck and Jimmy sitting at the bedside of their dying mother.

  • 'Better Call Saul' Postmortem: Showrunner Peter Gould Talks About That Accident, and How It Will Impact the McGills

    Warning: Storyline and character spoilers ahead for the “Nailed” episode of Better Call Saul. This penultimate episode of Better Call Saul’s second season would have made for a fine, cliffhanger finale, but the primetime gods have smiled upon fans and we’ll have one more Season 2 installment to further the major storylines that ramped up in “Nailed.” BCS co-creator and showrunner Peter Gould, who wrote and directed “Nailed,” talks to Yahoo TV about Chuck McGill’s very serious accident — which made one of the most cringe-inducing sounds we’ve ever heard, how Chuck has become a more sympathetic character this season, and how Mike Ehrmantraut’s happy day turned so ugly, so fast. Gould also chats about Mike’s “low-tech” formidable skills, how Kim has been brought down to Jimmy’s level in the Mesa Verde saga, and offers this preview of the season ender: “I think you’re going to see some sides of Jimmy and the other characters that you haven’t seen before.” I am haunted by the sound we hear at the end of this episode, poor Chuck’s head hitting that counter.

  • 'Better Call Saul' Recap: Truth and Consequences
