Will the Kettleman family get off scot free? Or is this nothing more than a delusional overexpectation from this crooked family? Read on to find out.

The official description from AMC:

Jimmy meets with potential new clients. When given the opportunity to do the right thing, Jimmy cashes in a favor from an unlikely ally.

Having been a huge fan of Breaking Bad (all be it a late one), I always had faith that Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould would do well with Better Call Saul. I never expected it to be this good though. Having excited since it’s first episode, this has quickly became a must watch show, with each week leading us into yet another wacky adventure with Jimmy McGill. It’s spin-off status has also excelled, as bar Saul himself featuring, there has been some amazing Breaking Bad references, as well as appearance, all of which add extra class to this show.


Following “Five-O”‘s amazing look into Mike Ehrmantraut’s past, “Bingo” returns the show’s focus towards Jimmy. Seeing the return of the Kettleman case, Jimmy certainly has his hands full, as when the crooked couple disagree with HHM’s Kim Wexler, they decide to take their case to James McGill. Though this overarching development has proven entertaining, there’s a part of me that feels it’s running a bit thin now, with the mundane nature being rather laughable. It does on the other hand leave the door open for yet more insight into Jimmy and Kim’s friendship. The atmosphere throughout this episode also manages to give an enticing flair, with the direction of Larysa Kondracki keeping this viewer hooked. This along with the entertaining script of Gennifer Hutchison makes this a worthy addition to an already phenomenal program.


Bob Odenkirk (Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman) never fails to astound, with the actor balancing drama and comedy wonderfully. Giving an energetic approach, whilst also conveying more emotional moments, Odenkirk always proves his worth, showing why his character got this spin-off. Jonathan Banks (Mike Ehrmantraut) also returns for this episode, with Mike owing Jimmy a favour. This allows for some suspenseful moments, with the cool, minimalistic acting of Banks being sensational as ever. Julie Ann Emery‘s (Betsy Kettleman) also surprisingly impressed, with the actress managing to convey the naivety of this character wonderfully, making it even more easier to dislike the Kettleman family. In addition to this Rhea Seehorn (Kim Wexler) continues to prove her worth, as though the focus is focused more on Jimmy and the Kettleman family, she manages to add extra depth, and emotion.

With only three episodes remaining, Better Call Saul is surely going to go down as one of the best, if not the best new shows of 2015, with it’s gripping display of drama and comic flair entertaining week in week out. The amazing acting, and engaging scripts also makes it a must watch series, as whether you have any experience with Breaking Bad or not, you’re bound to love this.
