Goofs

Mike's trick to shake the 'tail' by gumming up the works of the car park barrier can't work because the machine does not pull in a second parking ticket while the barrier is still up. Mike would have needed to get out of his car after exiting the barrier and feed the gum into the machine after it had closed behind his car. See more »

Quotes

Jimmy McGill: [to Christy Esposito] But listen - Listen! It doesn't matter. It doesn't. Because you don't need them. They're not gonna give it to you? So what? You're gonna take it. And you're gonna do whatever it takes, do you hear me? You are not gonna play by the rules. You're gonna go your own way, you're gonna do what they won't do. You're gonna be smart, you are gonna cut corners... and you are gonna win. They're on the 35th floor? You're gonna be on the 50th floor, you're gonna be looking down on them....

S4: Continued great writing and characters
9 March 2019 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

Season 4 picks up just after the fire at Chuck's house and follows Jimmy in his time barred from practicing law; a period in which he becomes a phone salesman officially and on the side. Meanwhile Nacho finds himself in continued danger as powerful players moved around him, and Mike takes the lead on Gus' project to build an underground facility to run cooks from. These threads all have strengths and weaknesses to them, but mostly the weaknesses are well compensated for and feel like non-issues in the main.

The thrust of the season is driven by the characters. The most obvious one of course is the titular Saul, who is more evident than ever in this season. I don't think it is about Saul Goodman being created, but more about that part of Jimmy becoming more evident to us, those around him, and to himself. The journey is delicate and very well played by Odenkirk; his performance is great, with endless understanding of his character. The delivery of the show around him only helps this with the way it is written, and the way in which flashbacks are structured to show past and future. Related to this, I felt a lot more for Kim this season, and really enjoyed how much Seehorn's performance added to the understanding of the character of Jimmy. Nacho's thread seemed much more functional than I would have liked, although it keeps the violence and drug-life in the frame. Similarly, I'm not sure Mike as a character moved too much, although our experience of him thus far maybe did; again the excavation etc project did feel much more functional than the main threads with Jimmy.

Functional or not, all the threads work very well, and as before the season is incredibly strong in the writing and performances. The technical delivery remains smart and sharp, and the whole thing has emotional weight and insight that only makes the action and style mean that much more.
