Critic reviews for Bingo

A slow build compared to last week's intense Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) origin story, Sunday night's episode of the "Breaking Bad" spinoff showed that Jimmy McGill has a heart as well as a mouth."

This was a low-key episode which, in many ways, felt like a turning point. It made explicit something previously only hinted at: that Jimmy had a heart.

One thing "Bingo" does do very, very well is hint at how much desperation lurks beneath the surface of these characters' lives - the sort of desperation that could drive ordinary people to tragic or criminal actions.

"Bingo", last night's episode of Better Call Saul, may not have been as gut-wrenching as last week's "Five-O", but it certainly provided us with some insight into Jimmy's inevitable 'Saul' destiny - even if we wish it wasn't so.

It is hard not to notice that even Jimmy's good acts have a way of advancing his best interests. I quite like that about the character and think it's what makes Better Call Saul so great.

Simply explaining the mechanics of the story doesn't paint the full picture-Mike's burglary allows the show to revel in its strength and tell the story in silence.
