Episode 1.4 “Chapter 4”
Written by Noah Hawley
Directed by Larysa Kondracki
Created by Noah Hawley & Stan Lee
Starring Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton, Jean Smart
FX Network
Air date: March 1st, 2017

Legion has set a pretty high bar for only three episodes. Marvel’s new series on FX is daring, in that nothing about it feels like anything you’ve ever seen in a superhero show before. In fact, without a hint or random word (mutant) thrown in, you may not even realize you’re watching a show based on X-Men comics, created by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz. David Haller (Dan Stevens) is one of the most powerful mutants in the world, with still yet undefined and uncontrolled powers including telepathy, telekinesis, teleportation, etc. Living in Summerland, a Professor X-style school in the woods, Melanie Bird (Jean Smart) is trying to use David’s powers to help stop potential threats from a government organization out to stop them – Division 3. They have kidnapped David’s sister Amy (Katie Aselton), and are trying to lure him out. Meanwhile with the help of his girlfriend Syd (Rachel Keller) (who he cannot physically touch), and Ptonomy (Jeremie Harris), they are digging in David’s head and exploring his memories for clues to how far his powers truly reach. And what’s with that blob-like yellow eyed man?!?!

TV Review: Better Call Saul 1.7 “Bingo”

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
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.

Sneak Peek: Better Call Saul 1.7 “Bingo” (Video)
  |  @   |  

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.”
