Better Call Saul Season 4 will premiere on Monday, August 6th on AMC. The show has already been renewed for a fifth season. There has not been any recent indication as to how long the show will run, but it doesn't (yet) sound like S5 is the final season. Season 4 will consist of 10 episodes.

In Season 4, Chuck’s death catalyzes Jimmy McGill’s transformation into Saul Goodman. In the wake of his loss, Jimmy takes steps into the criminal world that will put his future as a lawyer — and his relationship with Kim — in jeopardy. Chuck’s death deeply affects former colleagues Howard and Kim as well, putting the two of them once again on opposite sides of a battle sparked by the Brothers McGill.

Meanwhile, Mike Ehrmantraut takes a more active role as Madrigal Electromotive’s newest (and most thorough) security consultant. It’s a volatile time to be in Gus Fring’s employ, as Hector’s collapse sends shock waves throughout the Albuquerque underworld and throws the cartel into chaos — tearing apart both Gus and Nacho’s well-laid plans. While Gus changes course, Nacho finds himself in the crosshairs of deadly forces.

How have things changed in Season 4? The answer is simple: just more, but better, deeper, and more daring. Grade: A

And make no mistake: The way season four kicks into gear with such confidence and precision has all the markings of Breaking Bad’s clockwork plotting. Grade: A-

Does AMC put episodes online to stream after episode premiers? Cause I’ll pay the cash to get episodes through Xbox Live if I have too, but I’d much rather stream them. (Don’t have cable anymore, but I can’t miss my BCS fix)

They do stream episodes, but you have to log in with a cable provider to get access.

HYYYYYPE.

But... I have a hunch that the moment of Jimmy and Kim's definitive estrangement is going to be some heartbreaking shit. I'm dreading it :'(

I was lukewarm on the show when S1 premiered, but the whole thing is on Netflix and based on the praise it’s garnered and it’s longevity I’m gonna pound through.

Love this show. It's one of the few that I actually stick with and try to watch as each episode is released.

Another great thread by Cornballer . The s3 Easter Eggs video in the OP was an interesting watch.

Such a great show. Binged season 3 this past weekend. I fucking love how the show keeps you on the edge of your seat when some suspenseful shit is going down.

This showed up on the AV Club. Looks interesting:


Edit: This was very good. Disagreed with some stuff near the end, but gave me some things to think about.

I was hoping to rewatch seasons 1-3 but this snuck up on me. Very excited. This show very quietly became the best thing on TV.

In this week’s episode, Variety’s executive editor of TV Debra Birnbaum talks with Bob Odenkirk and Vince Gilligan, star and executive producer of AMC’s “Breaking Bad” spinoff series, “Better Call Saul,” which will enter its fourth season Aug. 6.

So fucking ready

Just watched a preview clip from the first ep that immediately follows the events after Hector is taken to the Hospital, with Gus and Nacho

Most of the way through Season 3 thanks to Netflix Canada being stupid, but it's really really really good. I've been waiting for Season 3 forever. Enjoy Season 4 and I'll let you all know how I like it sometime next year.

Can't wait. This is easily the best show on TV right now.

Does anyone know if the arrangement will be the same in regards to UK showings? It's always been that the episode is released on Tuesdays on Netflix and I'd hate if that were to change.

Den of Geek review
Better Call Saul could very well be on Breaking Bad’s level now but that’s not the point. It’s the storytelling infrastructure. It can no longer fail - it has ceased to have the capacity to be anything other than one of TV’s best shows. You give Gilligan, Gould, and the writing team four seasons about an Albuquerque mail carrier, podiatrist, or anyone else and that would end up on Breaking Bad’s level too.
Newsday review
BOTTOM LINE The precision of "Saul's" craftsmanship — writing, direction, acting, and all the way down to craft services, for all I know — makes this the best series on TV. And there really is no contest. 4 out of 4 stars

How involved is Vince Gilligan in this show? I thought he wasn't as involved as he was in Breaking Bad but he doesn't have any other projects besides this one. Is he the showrunner?
