We’ve got a big week of TV and Streaming ahead of us as Netflix launches Judd Apatow’s new comedy series, Love, Hulu airs 11.22.63 from J.J. Abrams and Stephen King, and History’s Vikings returns for a fourth season.
Our highlight this week though is AMC’s Better Call Saul, which returns on Monday for a second season. One devoted to displaying Jimmy McGill’s ongoing descent into sleazy mall lawyer territory. AKA the “Saul Goodman” character we knew him as on Breaking Bad.
When we last left Bob Odenkirk’s Jimmy, he’d just discovered that his ill (and perhaps mentally ill) brother, Chuck (Michael McKean), had actually been working to undermine him, having never believed in the first place that a former con man could work his way up to becoming a successful lawyer. Bitter and disillusioned, Jimmy rejected a job at a high-profile firm and the rest is…Season 2.
