What makes Better Call Saul a masterpiece in tragedy?
Created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, Better Call Saul is a prequel series of Breaking Bad, set 6 years before Walter White turns bad. It is centered on the con-man turned lawyer Jimmy McGill’s (Bob Odenkirk) journey of transformation into the criminal, Saul Goodman who we should Better Call Saul. We all know this guy from Breaking Bad, where Saul served as an attorney for Walter White and his accomplice Jesse.
The first three seasons showed the eventual death of Jimmy McGill and birth of the criminal Saul Goodman. The journey of Saul to the world of crime differs from Walter White who embraced the hidden love for crime openly after he was diagnosed with cancer.
We watched Walter feeling the sense of entitlement when he could get away by selling illicit drugs (meth). But McGill does try to do the right thing, albeit not always ethically. He slips into the world of crime not because he enjoys it but because of the lapse of judgment. His accidental slip into the world of crime is a heartbreaking tragedy rather than a pursuit of undeniable privilege.
Better Call Saul does an amazing job making you feel sick in a good manner (what a tragedy demands) episode after episode. Sorry for Breaking Bad fans, but Better Call Saul certainly takes away the cake in terms of superiority in the depiction of tragedy. But, will finale of Better Call Saul season 6 beat Breaking Bad finale?
Can Better Call Saul end better than Breaking Bad?
Better Call Saul already wears the feathered cap for being the best prequel spinoff series ever made. And I daresay, Breaking Bad is certainly the best TV show ever created. Even the finale episode of Breaking Bad was supreme, as against the off-putting grand finale of excellent series like Game of Thrones.
Will Better Call Saul season 6 finale dethrone Breaking Bad that holds the title for best finale episode ever given? Vince Gilligan will this time be competing with none other but himself to beat his best work. Gillian confidently said to TV Top 5,
“The Hollywood Reporter, and other wonderful journalistic outlets, are going to be having articles about, ‘Which one had the better ending? Breaking Bad or Better Call Saul?’ And I’ll bet you folks are gonna say Better Call Saul.”
Better Call Saul season 6 release date information
Announcement of renewal of Better Call Saul season 6 brought with it a bad news. The sixth season of Better Call Saul will be the final outing for Saul Goodman and Breaking Bad family altogether. Unlike the 3rd and 4th season of Better Call Saul, season 5 followed the February to April time slot. Following this pattern, we can expect season 6 of Better Call Saul to air in 2021 from February to April slot.
Will we see Walter White crossing path with Saul Goodman in season 6 of Better Call Saul? Highly unlikely, but you can keep your fingers crossed for the epic crossover.
Better Call Saul has fared stupendously well growing bigger and better with unexpectedly 6 seasons. Initially created to temper the rousing sentiments of fans who demanded enthusiastically a spinoff, Better Call Saul went on to become a masterpiece like its parent series. Unapologetically, occasionally beating Breaking Bad!
