Critic reviews for Quite a Ride
For an episode in many ways light in action, "Quite a Ride" was an emotional journey that not only moved things forward a great deal, but also maintained the beginning-of-the-roller-coaster thrill that's been one of "Saul's" most exciting qualities.
It's never been clearer that Michael McKean and Bob Odenkirk were perfectly cast as Better Call Saul's McGill brothers.
I do not assume that Kim's good intentions will not also get the best of her. I hope not, because while Breaking Bad was ultimately a tragedy, I still hold out hope that Better Call Saul is a hero's journey for Kim and hopefully for a flawed Jimmy.
This show is humming along like a freight train, gliding effortlessly yet with unmistakable power from moment to moment, scene to scene, sequence to sequence, character to character, episode to episode.
It's all good, man! Better Call Saul is creeping up on the events of Breaking Bad.
