‘Better Call Saul’ Star Rhea Seehorn and Producer Peter Gould Discuss the Road to ‘Breaking Bad’ — Turn It On Podcast

Last Week’S Podcast: Jim Carrey on The Perils of Standup Comedy In Our Outrage Culture — IndieWire’s Turn It On Podcast

Better Call Saul” quickly became more than just the “Breaking Bad” prequel that fans of the landmark series desired. A look at how sweet hustler Jimmy McGill lost a bit of his soul and became sleazy Saul Goodman, lawyer to Albuquerque’s best drug kingpins, is more nuanced and more tragic than you’d ever expect.

As Season 3 comes to a close, “Better Call Saul” fans got to see more familiar faces from the “Breaking Bad” universe, including the arrival of Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito). But the focus continues to be on both Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks, as viewers watch the descent of Jimmy/Saul and Mike Ehrmantraut into that dark world. This year has seen the origins of the Saul Goodman character, the origins of Mike and Gus’ unholy alliance, »

Better Call Saul Recap: Settle for Me

12 June 2017 8:06 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Need to catch up? Check out our previous Better Call Saul recap here.

With the Season 3 finale fast approaching, this week’s Better Call Saul had big consequences for Jimmy and Kim, as their career paths veered sharply in opposite directions. (“Veered” being the operative word.)

Jimmy’s still hustling for cash with his law license suspended, and he zeroes in on former client Irene, from the Sandpiper Crossing lawsuit. He butters the old lady up with cat-shaped cookies, then quickly shifts to quizzing her about the status of the suit. She’s the class representative, which means it’s »

‘Doctor Who’ Review: The ‘End of the World’ Only Delayed Us From Getting Back to Missy

27 May 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review of “Doctor Who” Season 10, Episode 7, “The Pyramid at the End of the World,” contains spoilers.]

The Rundown

Last week’s excellent episode played mind games with us and “Doctor Who’s” characters when it was revealed that everyone’s journey that we were following (in that episode anyway) was fake, just part of an elaborate simulation of Earth by alien beings. While we know that they were all part of a program, it was nevertheless heartbreaking to see these “people,” who definitely seemed to have gained sentience, realize their lives were a lie. We also learned that the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) was supposed to execute Missy (Michelle Gomez), but instead agreed to watch over her for 1,000 years, presumably in the vault. We say “presumably” because, well, when Steven Moffat is writing, sneaky surprises might be in store.

Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli Hit the Dance Floor With Normani Kordei in 'DWTS' Finale

23 May 2017 7:45 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Dancing With the Stars fans got to see a whole different side to judges Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman during the season 24 finale on Tuesday.

The pair donned full construction worker costumes to join finalist Normani Kordei, who recreated her week six salsa routine set to "When I Grow Up" by The Pussycat Dolls.

As a back-up dancer, Tonioli brought some impressive moves. Goodman, on the other hand, looked more like everyone's grandpa at a wedding reception when the DJ plays a song he doesn't know but he's had enough wine to let loose.

As the dance progressed, Kordei's pro partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, stripped off his shirt (which happens so frequently it seems as though he's contractually obligated to flash his abs). However, Tonioli made sure to show some skin as well.

The dance ended with Kordei and Goodman sharing a hug and »

‘Breaking Bad,’ ‘Mad Men,’ and 7 More TV Series That Should Never Be Made Into Films

23 May 2017 9:55 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Against all odds, good taste, and common sense, the “Baywatch” movie is washing up on multiplex shores this week. If it’s successful as anticipated, it will likely inspire a new wave of film producers hunting for TV IP. This is a plea to hold fire.

It can work, of course. “Firefly” fans long begged for a movie version of the short-lived Joss Whedon series and got one in “Serenity”; “Deadwood” aficionados are similarly holding out for a big screen version of the HBO series. “Sex and the City,” “Twin Peaks,” “The X-Files,” and “The Simpsons” have all taken a run at the feature-length route, with some very mixed results. And recent hits like “Fargo,” “Friday Night Lights,” and “Westworld” made the reverse jump from movie to series, while Justin Simien’s Sundance premiere “Dear White People” is now enjoying a healthy run as a Netflix series.

‘Better Call Saul’ Review: Rough Times for Jimmy Are Bad News For Everyone Else

22 May 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for “Better Call Saul” Season 3, Episode 7, “Expenses.”]

Last Week’S Review: Watch Out, World, Because Saul Goodman is Coming

Case Summary

After celebrating what felt like a victory last week, it’s now time for Jimmy to accept the consequences for his year-long suspension, which are far tougher than he anticipated. Trying to balance his required community service hours with his fledgling business as a producer and director of local commercials isn’t working out all that well — he’s running himself ragged and going broke in the process. What matters most to him is making sure that Kim has no clue just how bad things are getting… though he’s not above a petty moment of revenge against Chuck, as much as he might say that he’s moving on.

Meanwhile, we get a blast from the more-recent-than-usual past: Nacho decides to pay “Saul” Season 2’s resident prescription drug scammer/baseball enthusiast Pryce (Daniel Wormald) a visit, »

DWTS Finals! Find Out Which Contestant Judges Were ‘Blown Away’ by — and Has the ‘Momentum’ Going into Finale

22 May 2017 7:10 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

There’s just one night to go until Dancing with the Stars crowns its season 24 Mirrorball Trophy winner — and the race is tight.

On part one of the reality dancing competition series’ two-part finale on Monday evening, the three remaining contestants — David Ross, Normani Kordei and Rashad Jennings — each danced two dances (a redemption number first, followed by a freestyle), but one celebrity dominated the night with their scores and skills.

Ross, 40, kicked things off with pro partner Lindsay Arnold, first performing a Viennese Waltz. Despite receiving a standing ovation from the audience, the pair was only awarded a 33/40 for their first number. »

Rashad Jennings Gets First Perfect Scores of the Season in Night 1 of 'DWTS' Season 24 Finale!

22 May 2017 7:09 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Rashad Jennings has been killing it on the Dancing With the Stars stage for weeks, but the NFL star and his pro-partner, Emma Slater, had gone the whole season without a perfect score -- that is until the first night of the finals!

Before taking the stage Monday, Jennings opened up to his partner in a pre-taped package about what winning the Mirrorball trophy would mean for him.

"I was talking to my mom and she brought up how close I am right now to possibly winning, and we laughed because I've never won anything," Jennings shared with Slater. "I've never won a playoff game, never won a championship. I've always been close to everything but I've never won the big prize."

Normani Kordei Comes Back Strong in Night 1 of 'DWTS' Finale After Powering Though Painful Ankle Injury

22 May 2017 6:50 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

If you didn't know Normani Kordei had injured her ankle during rehearsals for Dancing With the Stars, you wouldn't have been able to tell based on her amazing performances on Monday's first night of the Season 24 finals.

Before their first dance of the night, a pre-taped package addressed Kordei's ankle injury, which occurred when she was practicing a toe-touch in the dance studio with her pro-partner Val Chmerkovskiy.

"All of my body weight came down on it and it really hurt," the singer recalled.

"I just feel terrible. This is a week that's already really intense and she's never gonna admit that she's hurt," Chmerkovskiy told the DWTS cameras in a solo interview.

Normani Kordei Delivers Love Letter to Hometown of New Orleans in Emotional 'DWTS' Semi-Finals Dance

15 May 2017 8:04 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Normani Kordei paid tribute to her hometown of New Orleans with a flawless jazz routine on Monday's Dancing With the Stars semi-finals, but it was her grandmother, Barbara, that really stole the show.

The Fifth Harmony singer opened up about some of the more emotionally challenging aspects of her childhood, including her mom's diagnosis with breast cancer when Kordei was only five years old, and living through Hurricane Katrina in 2005, which damaged her home and displaced her from everything she'd grown up with.

Normani, her parents and her grandmother moved to Houston in the wake of the disaster, and she continued to pursue her passion for singing, supported by her family -- especially her grandma -- every step of the way.

It was a sad night on Monday’s Dancing With the Stars when the ABC competition series said goodbye to fan-favorite pair Bonner Bolton and Sharna Burgess.

Et’s Nischelle Turner spoke to Burgess and Bolton after the elimination and brought up Goodman’s comments.

“I was really taken back that Len said that,” dance pro Burgess, 31, admitted. “I would think that Len understands that after 24 season on Dancing With the Stars, it’s not always just dance, it’s that person and their story and their inspiration. Why is it a bad thing that he’s been inspiring people for eight weeks?”

8 May 2017 7:52 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Dancing with the Stars has said farewell to its season 24 cowboy.

On Monday’s live episode of the reality dancing competition series, bull rider Bonner Bolton was eliminated from the show after performing his two dances of the night with pro partner, Sharna Burgess.

The duo first performed an Argentine tango at the top of the show, and were awarded 30/40 for their performance. But it was after their second — and scandalous — dance that the dancing duo was sent home from the ABC competition.

“This is very much like an intertwined office love triangle, love affair,” Burgess explained about the jazz number during rehearsals. »

8 May 2017 7:45 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

"The piece is so symbolic of times I felt helpless and desperate," Kordei shared in a pre-taped package. "I got bullied, terribly, on social media. I did an interview and it got taken out of context completely… people were calling me the N-word, it was really ugly."

"Every time I went online it was, 'How much we hate you. How talentless you are,'" Kordei recounted in a solo interview. "They actually made images of me being whipped, beaten, hung… I shouldn't want to change the color of my skin or the texture of my hair or the fact that I'm a woman. I felt really alone and just like everybody hated me."
