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.

After last week's slam dunk of an episode, I am feeling pretty confident in saying that Better Call Saul is one of the most interesting and unique telly shows on offer at the moment.

"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.

... what they've done since getting Breaking Bad fans on board is even more impressive: they've established Better Call Saul as a different yet not inferior show, with its own mood and rhythm.
