Better Call Saul Episode 107 Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk)

Warning – Spoilers for Better Call Saul Episode 1.7 “Bingo.”

AMC’s Better Call Saul Episode 1.7 “Bingo” aired Monday night and it brought the Kettlemans back to Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), who must decide whether he wants to be their lawyer now that they’ve fired his rival’s law firm. It should be a triumphant moment for Jimmy, who was nearly killed earlier in the season when his scheme to attract their business backfired and he came face-to-face for the first time with the crazed thug Tuco Salamanca. But, instead of gloating, Jimmy has no interest in taking on their embezzlement case, but the Kettlemans have something to hold over Jimmy, which makes him reassess the entire situation.

The network has released the “most talked about scene” from the episode, which sees Jimmy arrive at the Kettleman home to talk to them about his decision whether to represent them. AMC has also released a behind-the-scenes featurette that’s a 4-minute “Inside Look” at the episode which touches upon a lot of elements, like Jimmy and Kim’s relationship; Jimmy’s new office; Kim’s failure with the Kettlemans; Jimmy’s brother Chuck’s progress; Mike and Jimmy’s growing teamwork; and all the trouble that the Kettlemans are.

Better Call Saul 1.7 Jimmy and Kim

Better Call Saul
Episode 1.7 “Bingo”
Directed by Larysa Kondracki
Written by Gennifer Hutchison
Starring Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Michael McKean, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian, Kerry Condon, Omid Abtahi, Barry Shabaka Henley
AMC
Air Date: Monday, March 16, 2015, 10pm

Better Call Saul Episode 1.7 “Bingo,” the embezzling Kettlemans are back and they’ve had a change of heart about hiring Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) to be their counselor. While Mrs. Kettleman previously described Jimmy as the kind of lawyer that guilty people hire and as it turns out, they are guilty as hell. And they were sloppy about their crime, too, yet they believe they should be able to keep the $1.6 million that Mr. Kettleman stole from the county as well as stay out of jail and maintain their innocence and they think that Jimmy is the person who can do this for them.

While we’ve seen Jimmy’s Breaking Bad alter ego Saul Goodman in action with clients like this, even the hustler he becomes could not give these people everything they want. But, Better Call Saul is a prequel, where Jimmy is just getting his start. We see him in this episode hosting a BINGO game at the local nursing home, which is filled with his new clientele now that he’s taken up elder law. But, when the Kettlemans call and threaten to implicate him in their crime, since he actually took a bribe from them, Jimmy’s hands are tied. He has to take the case or go down with them.

Better Call Saul 1.7 Jimmy and Kim

In this week’s installment of Better Call Saul, Episode 1.6 “Five-O,” Jimmy McGill (Bob OdenKirk) and his neverending quest to increase his clientele took a back seat to Mike Ehrmantraut’s (Jonathan Banks) story. While we know him as the muscle behind drug kingpin Gus Fring’s operation in Breaking Bad, in AMC’s prequel series Saul, he’s just a parking lot clerk. At least that’s what Jimmy has been thinking all this time; that is, until the lawyer gets called down to represent Mike, who’s wanted for questioning by the Philadelphia Police Department in the murder of two of their officers.

We learned a lot about Mike and his past, more than I think we ever expected. Definitely more than Jimmy ever thought he’d know. But, now it’s time for Jimmy to get back to his main focus – his business.

AMC has released a sneak peek at the next episode, Episode 1.7 “Bingo,” which sees Jimmy showing fellow lawyer Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) his huge new office space — it’s more than just a step up from his previous space in a tiny back room of a nail salon.

Better Call Saul 106

AMC’s Better Call Saul Episode 1.6 “Five-O” aired Monday night and it was all about Mike and his mysterious past and how it’s come back to haunt him in the present. Aside from Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), who becomes Mike’s lawyer, the rest of the cast of characters is absent. Instead, we see Mike’s daughter-in-law and granddaughter, as well as cops from the Philly Police Department, who are investigating a murder of two of their own.

The network has released the “most talked about scene” from the episode, which involves Jimmy doing his lawyer thing for Mike in a situation that once again sets us up for Saul Goodman, the persona Jimmy takes on in Breaking Bad. AMC has also released a behind-the-scenes featurette that’s a 3 1/2-minute “Inside Look” at the episode which goes into detail about Mike’s past and his situation and how the people in his life are responding to it.

Better Call Saul 106

Better Call Saul
Episode 1.6 “Five-O”
Directed by Adam Bernstein
Written by Gordon Smith
Starring Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Michael McKean, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian, Kerry Condon, Omid Abtahi, Barry Shabaka Henley
AMC
Air Date: Monday, March 9, 2015, 10pm

Better Call Saul Episode 1.6 “Five-O” centered solely on Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks), with the show’s regular cast of characters nowhere to be found except for main man Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), who finds himself as Mike’s lawyer. After nearly four seasons on AMC’s Breaking Bad and five episodes on this first season of Saul, we finally learn about Mike’s past and what might have driven him to go from being a 30-year veteran of the Philadelphia Police Department to the henchman of drug kingpin Gus Fring.

“Five-O” pretty much spells it all out for us. And I don’t know about you, but the reveal is nothing I had anticipated, especially after the ending of the previous episode, “1.5 Alpine Shepherd Boy,” left us thinking that something nefarious was going on with Mike and the woman he was watching.

Better Call Saul Episode 105

We’ve seen four of the ten episodes of Season 1 of the AMC original series Better Call Saul, which sees Bob Odenkirk reprising his role from Breaking Bad in a prequel storyline. And so far, we’ve learned a lot about Jimmy McGill, the man Saul Goodman was before he became a strip-mall lawyer.

The latest episode, Episode 4 “Hero”, brings the end of the first natural arc of the series. When we first met Jimmy in the series premiere, he was downtrodden, struggling as a Public Defender in the Albuquerque, NM, courts, not making enough to even pay the meager $5 to get out of the court’s parking lot. He’s been trying to make a name for himself and build up his clientele, but he’s had a string of bad luck and can’t seem to get ahead. But everything changed in “Hero,” where Jimmy’s luck takes a turn for the better.

Episode 1.5 “Alpine Shepherd Boy” seems like it will be the start of something new for Jimmy, but after he gets alarming news, he’s forced him to make yet another choice.

Check out the preview photos and sneak peek video here below for Episode 1.5 “Alpine Shepherd Boy.”

Better Call Saul Episode 103 Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk)

SPOILERS for Better Call Saul Episode 1.3 “Nacho.”

AMC’s Better Call Saul Episode 1.3 “Nacho” aired last night and dealt with Jimmy McGill’s (Bob Odenkirk) reaction to Nacho’s plans to rob the Kettleman’s of the million-plus dollars that they had stolen from the county and were about to be indicted for.

AMC has released the “most talked about scene” from the episode, which involves Jimmy’s search for the Kettleman family. The network has also released a 5-minute behind-the-scenes “Inside Look” at the episode which starts out explaining a bit about the opening flashback sequence from 1992 when Jimmy was in a heap of trouble, and then explores his current-day (2002) situation with Nacho and The Kettlemans.

Better Call Saul Episode 1.4 Hero Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) AMC

We’re already through three episodes of the AMC original series Better Call Saul, with Bob Odenkirk reprising his role from Breaking Bad. In the first episode, which premiered on February 8, 2015, we were re-introduced to the character, who, for this prequel series, is known by his real name Jimmy McGill. The first two episodes gave us just a tiny glimpse of the character’s post-Bad whereabouts, with the majority of the events of the series so far taking place in 2002 when Jimmy was a struggling public defender before he became the shady strip-mall lawyer Saul Goodman with the popular “Better Call Saul” billboard and bench ads and TV commercials.

Episode 1.3 “Nacho,” which began with a flashback to Jimmy’s situation back in 1992, was mostly about Nacho’s grand plans to rob the Kettleman family and how Jimmy was going to handle it — would he join Nacho for the robbery or try to prevent the crime? Episode 4, “Hero,” will address the direct fall-out from the events of Episode 1.3, and will see Jimmy trying to explain to Nacho that every decision he made was for the greater good. How will Nacho react?

Check out the preview photos and video here below for Episode 1.4 “Hero.”

Better Call Saul Episode 103 Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) sc

Better Call Saul
Episode 1.3 “Nacho”
Directed by Terry McDonough
Written Thomas Schnauz
Starring Bob Odenkirk, Michael McKean, Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn, Michael Mando, Patrick Fabian
AMC
Air Date: Monday, February 16, 2015, 10pm

We all know Saul Goodman, the criminal lawyer — not criminal lawyer, from AMC’s mega-hit Breaking Bad. He’s unscrupulous, he’s shady, he’s somewhat cheesy, and he’s got a lot of underground connections, schemes, and burner cell phones. He knows how to manipulate the law in just the right way to get what he wants and to get his absolutely guilty clients off, or at least get their sentences drastically reduced. A guy like this has obviously been running his cons and gambles for quite some time to be able to get away with what his does — and in plain sight, as his face is all over billboards, benches, and TV commercials. Yet, in AMC’s Breaking Bad prequel/spin-off Better Call Saul, we learn that Saul only six years prior had been Jimmy McGill, a struggling public defender who couldn’t even pay $3 to park his car at the county courthouse.

How did down-on-his-luck screw-up Jimmy McGill become the savvy lawyer Saul Goodman after only a few years? It’s three episodes into Better Call Saul and the breadcrumbs to the underworld have been laid out for Jimmy’s transition into Saul.
