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 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.”

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

SPOILERS for Better Call Saul Episode 1.4 “Hero.”

AMC’s Better Call Saul Episode 1.4 “Hero” aired last night and gave us another flashback of pre-law Slippin’ Jimmy’s (Bob Odenkirk) life, before it jumped right into present-day Jimmy still trying to woo the Kettlemans to be his clients. The couple’s reaction to Jimmy’s pitch is what sets off a chain-reaction prompting the lawyer to make a major change.

The network has released the “most talked about scene” from the episode, which, not surprisingly, is the news report Jimmy was filming when a freak accident occurs, spurring him to become the episodic title’s hero. AMC has also released two behind-the-scenes featurettes: there’s a 4 1/2-minute “Inside Look” at the episode which touches on the opening flashback before delving into Jimmy’s battle with big-time lawyer Hamlin; the other is a 3 1/2-minute “Making Of” video centering on how the billboard scene was created.

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

Better Call Saul
Episode 1.4 “Hero”
Directed by Colin Bucksey
Written by Gennifer Hutchison
Starring Bob Odenkirk, Michael McKean, Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn, Michael Mando, Patrick Fabian
AMC
Air Date: Monday, February 23, 2015, 10pm

Every day is a struggle for Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk). His adversities aren’t narrowed down to just one facet of his life, but instead encompass ALL aspects of the lawyer’s being. Along with struggling to build his clientele, pay his bills, and make a name for himself, there’s his constant inner conflict as he continues to teeter between acting in good conscience and relying on his old swindling ways. Back in Better Call Saul Episode 2, we heard Jimmy promise his older brother, Chuck (Michael McKean), that he wasn’t slipping back into his old ways, which, as we see from flashbacks, was being a hustler and a schemer. He’s trying to make his way in the world as a public defender for the Albuquerque, NM, courts, but it pays very little and is getting him nowhere. In Episode 1.4 “Hero,” Jimmy once again walks that fine line between good and bad, but this time around, his moral ambiguity becomes his defining characteristic.

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 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.

Better Call Saul Episode 103  Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) Photo by Lewis Jacobs/AMC

Last week saw the two-night premiere of AMC’s spin-off Better Call Saul, with Bob Odenkirk reprising his role from Breaking Bad. In the first two episodes, which aired last Sunday and Monday respectively, we’re re-introduced to the character, only for this prequel series, he goes by his real name Jimmy McGill. Although the premiere episode gave a glimpse of the character’s post-Bad whereabouts, the events of the series so far take 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.

The end of Episode 1.2 gave us an idea of how Jimmy will enter the world that Saul eventually inhabits. Check out the preview photos and video here below for Episode 1.3.
