Fans Questioning Why More People Don't Watch 'Best TV Series Of Past Decade'

As the second half of the sixth and final season kicked off yesterday, many fans praised the 'spectacular' programme

Fans are questioning why more people aren’t watching the ‘best TV series of the past decade’, as it gets set to bow out with its last ever episodes. Watch a trailer for the second part of the show's final season here: 

Yup, Better Call Saul may have been gracing our screens since 2015, but it seems many people still haven’t got round to checking it out – despite the fact others have hailed it the best show of the last 10 years. 

The series, which is a spin-off and prequel to Breaking Bad, follows earnest lawyer Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) as he transforms into a criminal defence attorney known as Saul Goodman.

As the second half of the sixth and final season kicked off yesterday, 11 July, many fans praised the 'spectacular' programme, with broadcaster and film critic Dave Fanning starting off the love-in by tweeting: “The final run of Better Call Saul starts tonight. Why are so few people talking about it.. the best TV series of the past decade? Howard is my hero.” 

And it seems many people agree, with one writing: “The last aired episode is the first time in a verrrrry long time I audibly gasped while watching a TV show. Incredible writing and the best thing on TV in last decade.” 

Fanning replied: “Brian…It was the single most startling moment I’ve seen in a TV series.” 

Another fan also agreed, saying: “I agree it is the best series of the last decade and deserves comparison with the best shows of the previous decade – Sopranos, The Wire.” 

Someone else added: “It’s spectacular. Particularly as the outcome of so many characters is known to most viewers. Seems like a slow burner at start but barely a wasted scene on a rewatch. If they nail the landing, will be best TV series ever.” 

The final series, which is due to conclude on 15 August, sees Jimmy meet Walter White and Jesse Pinkman – two characters you'll know from Breaking Bad.

Better Call Saul co-creator Peter Gould recently confirmed Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul would guest star as the dynamic duo, but didn't want to give much away.

Speaking on a panel at PaleyFest LA, Gould said: "I don’t want to spoil things for the audience, but I will say the first question we had when we started the show was, ‘Are we gonna see Walt and Jesse on the show?’ Instead of evading, I’ll just say yeah.

“How or the circumstances or anything, you’ll just have to discover that for yourself, but I have to say that’s one of many things that I think you’ll discover this season."
