The Unpopular Opinion About Better Call Saul's Pryce

Fans of "Better Call Saul" have long held mixed feelings about the characters, but even those with unpopular opinions hold fast to them. One unpopular opinion is that Mike's (Jonathan Banks) daughter Stacey (Kerry Condon) deserved to be fleshed out more. Others felt it wasn't necessary, like Redditor u/ManicEyes, who — while wishing the writers would give her something more substantial — felt "...it wouldn't necessarily serve a purpose in the grand scheme of the story."

Other unpopular opinions have to do with Howard (Patrick Fabian), with some like Redditor u/mayomelon saying he's "one of the show's most likeable characters especially on rewatch." While this is considered an unpopular opinion, as the seasons have progressed, it's gained momentum. Howard was set up to be one of the antagonists of the show, but when he started being seen as someone who was just being loyal to Chuck (Michael McKean), it's easier to understand why he did some of the things he did.

Some of the unpopular opinions people have make sense, given they're about liking seemingly unlikable characters, or thinking their actions have gone too far. But one unpopular opinion about Pryce (Mark Proksch) has fans split, and many coming to his defense.

Pryce is a character that fans love to hate

In the "Better Call Saul" Reddit thread posted by u/Davidovskis about unpopular opinions, the most upvoted answer was u/lookatthebr1ghtside's "I like the baseball cards guy subplot." The baseball cards guy is Pryce, whose real name is Daniel Wormald. He's an IT technician who has decided to illegally sell pharmaceutical drugs on the side. He hires Mike as his bodyguard in his first drug deal with Nacho Varga (Michael Mando). When Mike refuses to get into the gaudy yellow Hummer Pryce bought with his earnings, Pryce goes to the next drug deal with Nacho alone. Pryce naively lets him check out the inside of his car, where Nacho learns his real name and identity.

After Nacho breaks into Pryce's house and steals his beloved baseball cards, Pryce begs Mike to help him get them back. After a swap for his Hummer he gets his cards back, but also runs into trouble with the police. After enlisting Saul's (Bob Odenkirk) help and falsifying evidence with fetish videos, Pryce is let off, and hasn't been seen since Season 3. While it may be popular to dislike Pryce, the naive would-be drug dealer seems to have plenty of fans who disagree, with u/OnlyTheBLars89 writing, "That's an unpopular opinion? Because I love that dude. 😅"
