There are a few revelations in the first behind the scenes set video of AMC’s upcoming Breaking Bad spin-off, Better Call Saul. The show stars Bob Odenkirk as the slimy lawyer from Breaking Bad, and if you haven’t followed along with the early promos for the show, one revelation here is that Saul Goodman isn’t the guy’s real name. He’s really Jimmy McGill. That’s just the very tip of the character expansion Saul is getting in this new show, however, and I’m so in. (Who am I kidding, I was already in.)
The video also features tons of the new actors and below the line talent discussing how special it is to be back in the A.B.Q — Albuquerque, New Mexico — to shoot the series. Check out the Better Call Saul set video below. Read More »

The fifth season of The Walking Dead premiered on Sunday and the sixth season is already locked in. If you aren’t already watching, now is a pretty great time to start. However, what to do about catching up? Do you really have time to watch four seasons of zombie killing, family losing, throat ripping, prison breaking, human sacrificing, head cutting and so much more? If you do, that’s probably the best bet. But if you don’t, the always funny Fine Bros. have recapped the first four seasons of The Walking Dead in 9 minutes. Plus, they do it in one take. Check out the helpful and funny Walking Dead recap video below. Read More »
The fifth season of The Walking Dead returns this weekend but, almost a week before that, AMC has already renewed the show for another. Not a surprise for what continues to be one of the most popular shows on all of cable TV. Read more about The Walking Dead Season 6 below. Read More »
The Internet has created a lot of terrible things but Bad Lip Readings aren’t one of them. It’s one of the few online video trends that takes a lot of skill and can have absolutely hilarious, memorable and quotable results. Plus they have a very broad appeal. The first ones I remember seeing were of political figures saying the most off-the-wall, heinous and crazy things. Fun for the whole family.
One of the newest is an almost better juxtaposition. It’s a scene from the fourth season of The Walking Dead between Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Beth (Emily Kinney) that was originally about one thing and has been turned into a crazy party. Check out the funny Walking Dead Bad Lip Reading video below. Read More »
Twitter can be a magical place. A place where connections are made in front of your eyes. Usually in Hollywood, when a producer wants to hire a director, that person has to go through an agent, who then assesses the opportunity, then contacts the manager who discusses it with the director and a decision is made.
Or, on Twitter, you just ask and they say yes.
Friday evening, Ain’t It Cool News‘ Eric Vespe tweeted that he hopes Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg try to cast Kurt Russell as the Saint of Killers in their AMC adaptation of the popular comic book, Preacher. Director Duncan Jones, who has been a little out of the loop over the past year making some tiny video game movie, asked Vespe about the project. Then Rogen himself jumped in and asked if Jones would direct. Will this actually happen? Who knows. But it’s a great Twitter conversation to read and even Rian Johnson got int he mix. Check it out below. Read More »

The Walking Dead is such a big hit for AMC, it’s kind of surprising it’s taken so long for the channel to branch out with it. Sure they have merchandise, the original comic books, webisodes, and the Talking Dead. Now the network has finally announced it will be attempting a spinoff. A pilot episode has just been ordered for a Walking Dead companion series.
The problem is, they won’t announce what it’s about. Dave Erickson will be the executive producer and showrunner, as he co-created and co-wrote the pilot with Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman. Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert from The Walking Dead will also executive produce. And they say the show will give fans an opportunity to explore “what is going on in the zombie apocalypse in other parts of the world.” But that’s pretty much it. Read the full press release about the Walking Dead companion series below. Read More »
In a somewhat surprising move, AMC just renewed the show Halt and Catch Fire. The first season averaged 1.3 million viewers over its first 10 episodes, which isn’t great, but it hit a specific adult demographic that the channel liked. And I’m sure the fact its male stars Lee Pace and Scoot McNairy are both becoming major stars on the big screen (Guardians of the Galaxy for Pace, Batman v Superman for McNairy) doesn’t hurt. The new episodes will air next summer. Read more about Halt and Catch Fire season 2 below. Read More »
AMC recently premiered the first Better Call Saul footage, and the clip from the Breaking Bad spin-off is now online. It’s not much — ten seconds of Saul (Bob Odenkirk) talking about the value of having a lawyer. But we know much of the show takes place six years before Breaking Bad, and this seems like a Saul who is younger and not quite as shark-like as he is by the time Walt and Jesse walk into his office years later. In fact, the character probably isn’t even called Saul at this point. He’s most likely going by the name James M. McGill. He once told Walt that’s his real name, but who knows with Saul? Presumably the show will fill in many more details.
Better Call Saul premieres in February 2015. Watch the footage below. Read More »
