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.

Check out the preview photos and sneak peek video here below for Better Call Saul Episode 1.7 “Bingo.”

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

SPOILERS for Better Call Saul Episode 1.5 “Alpine Shepherd Boy.”

AMC’s Better Call Saul Episode 1.5 “Alpine Shepherd Boy” aired Monday night and centered mostly on Chuck McGill (Michael McKean), Jimmy’s (Bob Odenkirk) brother, and his illness, as well as Jimmy’s potential new clients. It also shows the kind of people who are now attracted to Jimmy as a lawyer since his billboard ad stunt.

The network has released the “most talked about scene” from the episode, which gives us more background on Chuck’s illness and his history with it, as well as how Jimmy has been handling it. AMC has also released a behind-the-scenes featurette that’s a 4-minute “Inside Look” at the episode which analyzes Jimmy’s new batch of clients.

Better Call Saul Episode 1.6 Five-O Mike

In the last episode of Better Call Saul, Episode 1.5 “Alpine Shepherd Boy,” we finally got to see Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) out from behind his parking lot clerk booth. While we saw him week after week on Breaking Bad, but we never learned very much about the henchman’s personal life except that he had been in law enforcement and that he was a devoted grandfather who just wanted to leave his little granddaughter a legacy. In his prequel series, Mike is a main character and it’s about time we learned more about what’s happened in his life and what motivates him.

Check out the preview photos and sneak peek video here below for Episode 1.6 “Five-O.”

Better Call Saul Episode 105

Better Call Saul
Episode 1.5 “Alpine Shepherd Boy”
Directed by Nicole Kassell
Written by Bradley Paul
Starring Bob Odenkirk, Michael McKean, Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn, Michael Mando, Patrick Fabian
AMC
Air Date: Monday, March 2, 2015, 10pm

While the episodes of AMC’s Better Call Saul so far showcased Jimmy McGill’s (Bob Odenkirk) struggles as a public defender in the Albuquerque, NM, courts before he became the big shot Saul Goodman in Breaking Bad, Episode 1.5 “Alpine Shepherd Boy” dealt more with Jimmy’s brother, Chuck (Michael McKean).

In previous episode’s flashbacks, we saw that Chuck was actually a successful lawyer who was part of a huge, profitable law firm, but now he has daily struggles of his own. Instead of picking up the pieces for “Slippin’ Jimmy,” now it’s Jimmy’s turn to take care of his brother. Eighteen months prior to the events of the first episode, Chuck developed a condition called electromagnetic hypersensitivity, where he can’t be around electronic devices, which have their own electromagnetic field. Because of this, he can no longer work and is a recluse trapped in his own house, with Jimmy bringing him all the essentials for survival. When exposed to electricity or even the world outside his house at this point, Chuck experiences problems like burning sensation of the skin, nausea, tinnitus, vertigo, shortness of breath, and more. In this episode, an unfortunate incident at his house lands Chuck in the hospital, where he becomes sicker than ever. It’s up to Jimmy to make a choice about his brother’s future.

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.”
