It took me about several years before Netflix convinced me to become a member. For more than 500 pesos a month of subscription, I found this rather reasonable now than what this video streaming services began charging its viewers more than 2,000 pesos, I think a year or so before.
I appreciate the enormous library of films, movies and television shows Netflix showcased. I thought I couldn’t finish even one.
Surprisingly, I did despite studying for my upcoming examinations, writing media plans, calling for sponsors for this UP-led initiative to feed depressed communities, etal. What attracted me to this television series is it appears to have a very simple plot but it rivets you to the screen because of its very interesting story twists and turns.
I am referring to Better Call Saul, a TV series about a small town lawyer who encounters moral dilemmas in his professional life. I will not spoil your day by writing down what exactly happened to him–I’m not a spoiler and that’s not my style. Suffice it to say, if you are a lawyer, you will probably associate yourself with his predicament. Or, even if you are a non-lawyer, but you have a serious beef with your brother or sister who is more successful than you are, then this show is for YOU.
The show also takes its hats off to lawyers who dedicate their lives taking pro bono cases. Saul’s partner in this show is also a lawyer who rose from the mail room of a big corporate law firm to become the state’s top legal banking expert only to sacrifice her lucrative job and embark on helping people in need. Saul also does that– in his own twisted way.
If you’re done with historical documentaries, war movies, thrillers, comedies, and the like, Better to Call Saul is for you. It’s infectious.
