Breaking Bad Pizza

Deliberately throwing stuff onto a stranger’s roof is a jerk movie pretty much any time, especially when the thrown object is something that is a pain to clean up and primed to slowly decompose. And when random people are throwing the same thing on the same roof over and over again, it gets really irritating. But some Breaking Bad fans evidently can’t stop throwing pizza onto the roof of the house used as Walter White’s home in the series, and that’s becoming a problem for the people who actually live there. Now show creator Vince Gilligan is asking fans to cut it out. Read More »

Bob Odenkirk in Better Call Saul

Everyone’s favorite sleazy lawyer Saul Goodman will be returning to TV this winter in Better Call Saul, as will everyone’s favorite no-nonsense fixer Mike Ehrmentraut. But don’t look for Walter White or Jesse Pinkman to join them anytime soon.

Executive producer Peter Gould has confirmed that Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will not be in Season 1 of the spinoff series. After the jump, find out why — and get a good long look at the characters we will be seeing, in the form of a Better Call Saul extended trailer.  Read More »

Better Call Saul header

Of all the TV shows coming to the small screen in 2015, Vince Gilligan‘s Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul has to be among the most anticipated. The show premieres February 8 and 9 on AMC and will explore the character of Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk. In Breaking Bad, it always seemed like Saul had connections to some really, really messed up people and this show – which is set before, during and after Breaking Bad depending on the story – will give us a better idea of how a struggling lawyer named James McGill became the slimy lawyer Saul.

AMC has just released our best look yet at the show via a cool new 30 second TV spot. It’s almost all new footage, so check out the Better Call Saul trailer below. Read More »

new Better Call Saul trailer

The Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul, from Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould and starring Bob Odenkirk, is set to premiere in February, and AMC will use the popularity of The Walking Dead to lead in to the new show. The Better Call Saul premiere is set to follow the midseason return of The Walking Dead season five, and Saul‘s second episode will air the next night, essentially making for a two-night premiere. A few more details on that are below, along with a nice (if short) new Better Call Saul trailer. Read More »

Better Call Saul video

The Breaking Bad spin-off show Better Call Saul doesn’t premiere until February. (And we don’t even know precisely when in February.) But promotions for the show are already starting. A Breaking Bad marathon on AMC was capped off this weekend by this new Better Call Saul video featuring a song that could well be the show’s theme tune. Sung by Junior Brown, the country ditty has lyrics by show creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould. The video, which is pretty entertaining on its own, has some new footage from the show, while the lyrics could tease the sort of stories we can expect to see in the series.  Read More »

Breaking Bad - Ozymandias

Walter White may have had a rough year, but Breaking Bad had a great one. The AMC drama practically swept the 2014 Emmy Awards tonight with five wins, including Best Drama Series. The only series to pick up more statuettes this year was Sherlock: His Last Vow — and that’s only if you count the four Creative Arts Emmys it won earlier this month on top of the three it picked up during the telecast.

On the comedy side, Emmy voters continued to be high on Modern Family, which won Best Comedy Series for the fifth year in a row. Indeed, the most noticeable pattern to emerge in 2014, better or for worse, was Emmy’s preference for repeat winners over new ones. All four victors in the major acting categories had won before. Meanwhile, newbies like Orange Is the New Black and Silicon Valley were shut out. Even True Detective managed just one win during the ceremony, for director Cary Joji Fukunaga. Oh well. At least Fargo went home with Best Miniseries.

Hit the jump for the full list of winners.

Better Call Saul promo

Bob Odenkirk‘s Saul Goodman was just a supporting character in the dramatic saga of Walter White, but his colorful personality couldn’t help but demand our attention. So in the upcoming Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul, he’ll finally get his time in the spotlight.

The show promises to delve into the hows and whys of this fan-favorite character, but for now all we have are questions. Like the one series co-creator Peter Gould poses in the new Better Call Saul promo: “What kind of problem do you have that becoming Saul Goodman solves it?” Watch the Better Call Saul promo after the jump.

Better Call Saul footage

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 »

Better Call Saul plot details

OK, here we go: real details on what Vince Gilligan is doing with his Breaking Bad spin-off series Better Call Saul. We’ve known some basics, such as that Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks are reprising their Breaking Bad roles of Saul Goodman and Mike Ehrmantraut. And we’ve heard a hell of a lot of rumors, speculation, and “maybe” details from Gilligan, Odenkirk, and other participants. Now during a TCA press tour, Gilligan and AMC have offered up two new photos (that’s one above), a cast list, and new Better Call Saul plot details. 

Now we know that the show is generally set six years before the events of Breaking Bad, before Saul was even called Saul. All the details are below. Read More »
