‘Better Call Saul’: How to Watch the ‘Ethics Training With Kim Wexler’ Videos
Better Call Saul: Ethics Training with Kim Wexler took home the award for best short-form series at the 26th annual Critics Choice Awards. The AMC series was also up for honors in several other categories, but only took home one award for the online mini series. Here’s how to watch the Critics Choice Award-winning Ethics Training With Kim Wexler minisodes from Better Call Saul.
‘Ethics Training With Kim Wexler’ helped promote ‘Better Call Saul’ Season 5
For every season of Better Call Saul, showrunners created mini episodes leading up to the premiere. The Better Call Saul minisodes started with Giancarlo Esposito hosting the Los Pollos Hermanos Employee Training series. The web features helped tease Gus Fring’s return and promote season 3 of Better Call Saul. When the time came to promote season 4, Jonathan Banks starred in 10 minisodes about Madrigal Electromotive Security Training.
Showrunners continued the trend for season 5, creating 10 more episodes starring Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn). As with the show’s previous mini-series, Kim’s ethics videos were a nod to her overarching character dilemma in season 5. Seehorn, Bob Odenkirk, and Patrick Fabian star in the latest Ethics Training mini-series. All three web series have won Emmys. Now, Kim Wexler’s training videos have been recognized by the Critics Choice Association.
‘Better Call Saul’ recognized by the Critics Choice Association
Better Call Saul: Ethics Training with Kim Wexler took home the Critics Choice Award for best short-form series during the 2021 ceremony. Some Better Call Saul fans were happy about the win, but they’re still eager for Seehorn to be recognized for her performance as Kim Wexler. Better Call Saul was also nominated for best-supporting actress in a drama (Seehorn), best-supporting actor in a drama (Banks), best actor in a drama (Odenkirk), and best drama in 2021. Unfortunately for many fans, the AMC series only snagged one win.
“The Ethics Training with Kim Wexler series of shorts on YouTube won a Critics Choice Award tonight,” a fan on Reddit said. “It’s nice to see [Better Call Saul] recognized in any form, I suppose. Both Jonathan Banks and Bob Odenkirk have won Critics Choice Awards for their work on [the show].” Many are hopeful that with the sixth and final season, the stars of the show will receive the recognition fans feel they deserve.
Will Rhea Seehorn get a ‘Better Call Saul’ spinoff?
Seehorn stole the show in the webisodes promoting Better Call Saul season 5. As the star of the videos created by “Saul Goodman Productions” (you can hear Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman providing direction in the background), Kim breaks down what it means to be an ethical lawyer. The irony is not lost on Better Call Saul fans who are all too familiar with Saul/Jimmy’s sly practices.
With Better Call Saul coming to an end, fans are already hoping to see more from the talented Seehorn in the future. Rolling Stone teased the idea of Gotta Get Giselle, the spinoff series that could follow Kim’s alter ego that she uses when she and Jimmy pull cons. Since Kim doesn’t appear at all in Breaking Bad, many fans are hoping for Kim’s peaceful conclusion.
