• Bob Odenkirk, addressing the four-episode Season 1 of W/ Bob and David, tells The New York Times, "I think we both would like to do more of these tomorrow. But we also have a confidence, especially based on this round of four, that we can do great shows in a year or two, just as good."
• Rotten Tomatoes suggests binge-watching Better Call Saul, "a stand-alone drama, engrossing and darkly comic, with knock-out performances by [Bob] Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks."
• Albuquerque Business First reports that Better Call Saul had a wrap party for Season 2 on Halloween night.

• Collider, reporting that W/ Bob and David will be available on Netflix next month, says the series, which reunites Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, is "a promising rekindling of the same comedic minds that brought about Mr. Show." Wired adds that Odenkirk and Cross "are back with a whole new show of delightfully weird comedy sketches." Vulture says the show "comes with some of the highest expectations."
• Rotten Tomatoes also suggests binge-watching Mr. Show With Bob and David: "For inspired randomness, absurdist satire, and some of the best segues in television history, you can’t beat Mr. Show."
• In honor of Mr. Show's platinum anniversary, Rolling Stone speaks with Keegan Michael Key, Sarah Silverman and others "to ask them about their favorite sketches, how it inspired them and the way that its legacy left an impact on comedy."
• Michael McKean, talking to Metronews about his new Cooking Channel show Food: Fact or Fiction, says, "I will enjoy food, but I’m not a real fancy Dan."
