So this is my son's favorite show right now--a prequel to "Breaking Bad" which shows how CRIMNAL lawyer, Saul Goodman, becomes--you know--Saul Goodman.
I watched an episode with Son last night, and it's everything he said it was. Darkly funny and smart--even oddly poignant-- for sure. But I'm wondering if I want to commit to a series where I watch a character devolve instead of evolve. I mean, that is the stuff of epic tragedy. MacBeth. Othello. Hamlet They all leave their better selves behind at some point. So "Better Call Saul" fits neatly into that tradition.
But. Gah. Sometimes a girl just wants a happy ending, you know?
