As it returns for Season 5, Better Call Saul needs to be less wasteful of its central character

"This series has built out over several seasons a dynamic that throbs with painful and vivid life all its own, and seems relentlessly set on merging it with a show that, while accomplished, has had its day exploring dynamics that are frankly less compelling," says Daniel D'Addario says of Season 5 of Better Call Saul. "The show itself is drawn towards the easy way out of a situation that it ought not be trying to escape at all, bringing in familiar if tapped-out characters not to complete its story but to score points it hardly needs. Better Call Saul is, already, one of the most accomplished shows of its moment; that it has tended not to find the awards success of its predecessor series may speak to the ongoing simmer rather than the quick burn of its pleasures. It’s hard not to wish, though, that the series, as it enters its endgame, trusted its viewers to understand that we were watching a Breaking Bad prequel while keeping the delicacy of this series’s mood intact, and trusted us to remember those with whom Saul will soon be associating without resurrecting them to diminished effect. That mood is melancholic, wistful, glimmering with struggle and with love that we know will soon fall away. That there doesn’t seem to be room for the grandiosity of Breaking Bad is precisely the point."
