“When “Pryce” objects to the notion that he’s a bad guy, Mike points out, “I didn’t say you were a bad guy. I said you were a criminal.”
“What’s the difference?” Pryce replies.
That, my friends, seems to be the big question of this series.
Mike was once a good guy who, by taking bribes and kickbacks, was also a
criminal. Jimmy’s a former criminal trying not to be a bad guy, even
though no one seems to believe him. Eventually, both of these men are
going to become very serious criminals indeed; but will they become bad
guys at the same time?” –Alan Sepinwall, HitFix
