TV: Soul searching… There better be more of Better Call Saul

Better Call Saul

Who else is feeling a little anxious as we round the final corner and enter the home straight of Better Call Saul?

Soon there will be no more of the sublime Bob Odenkirk as the morally dubious lawyer with several competing identities: aspiring legal brief James McGill, calculating con artist Slippin’ Jimmy and the flamboyantly slimy Saul Goodman.

These personalities are where McGill hides; nevertheless, no matter how many ethical lines he breaks – conning old people out of their fortunes or freeing the worst villains from police clutches – Odenkirk’s pathos is evident.

The anxiety is about what happens to his wife Kim, played by Rhea Seehorn. We know she plays no part in the sequel Breaking Bad series, so her fate, unlike Saul’s, remains uncertain.

Kim is increasingly being drawn into his world of grey ethics and, worse, his dealings with ruthless criminals.

Seehorn’s efforts have landed her Emmys, and rightly so. Odenkirk deserved a spin-off series and so does Kim; even an Aaron Paul-style one-off special like El Camino is a must.

Happily Odenkirk, who survived a heart attack while filming the latest Better Call Saul, has also signed up for another series called Straight Man, about an English teacher experiencing a midlife crisis.

No need to be worried. S’all good, man.
