As a spin-off from one of the most critically acclaimed shows of all time, certainly the breakout hit of recent years, Better Call Saul has an almost impossible task ahead of it. Half a season in and the response has been, for the most part, overwhelmingly positive: Esquire went so far as to say the first few episodes beat out the series€™ predecessor.
