3.7 Expenses

Even winning has consequences. Jimmy McGill might have roundly defeated his brother, but in such a tangled, ugly, complex battle his victory was never going to be wholesale, and at the time, considering what he stood to lose, the casualties didn’t seem that bad. A year away from the law, some community service; in theory neither are too bad. But in Vince Gilligan’s Albuquerque things have a way of worsening.

Jimmy struggled for years to becoming a lawyer, and that struggle only deepened once he learned what the brother he did it to impress really thought of his choices. Now Jimmy finds himself doing humiliating tasks

Gripping, surprising and satisfyingly distinct from Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul season 2 is proving to be must-see television...

This review contains spoilers.

2.6 Bali'Hai

Lying to yourself becomes a lot harder when someone else calls you out on it. It’s even worse when they do it without realising the lengths to which you were going to maintain the façade. And worse still is when that person is the very reason you were working so hard to stick to that fiction.

Jimmy McGill has been uncomfortable at Davis and Main from the moment he first walked through the doors. Initially his seemingly relaxed new workplace looked to be somewhere he could be himself and exercise some autonomy, which led to humiliation and huge trouble. Last week he was reminded by a former associate of just how good he has it, but the look on his face made it

Sarah Wayne Callies Joins Fox’s ‘Prison Break’ Revival

Sarah Wayne Callies Joins Fox’s ‘Prison Break’ Revival
Sarah Wayne Callies is coming back to “Prison Break,” Variety has learned.

Callies will reprise her role as Dr. Sara Tancredi in Fox’s limited event series “Prison Break,” which will premiere next season. Production will begin in Vancouver in April.

Callies joins series stars Wentworth Miller (Michael Scofield) and Dominic Purcell (Lincoln Burrows), who are also returning. In the drama’s new chapter, which picks up after Michael’s apparent death, Sara has moved on with her life, raising her and Michael’s child with her new husband (guest star Mark Feuerstein, “Royal Pains”). When clues surface suggesting that Michael may be alive, Sara teams with Lincoln to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever.

Based on the 2005 series, which ran four seasons, the original producing team Paul T. Scheuring, Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Olmstead will return as exec producers, with Scheuring writing and serving as showrunner. Vaun Wilmott,

‘Better Call Saul 2×03: Amarillo’ Review

“Feels like something’s up.”

Using your hour of airtime to tell parallel stories with no point of intersection is a risky proposition. Jimmy and Mike may both feel the pull of older, easier ways of moving and surviving in the world, and they’re both muddling through half-assed attempts at turning over a new leaf, but that’s about where the similarities end. The divergence in tone between the two stories is galactic. Jimmy’s low-key power struggles with Chuck, his seeking out of the path of least resistance, and the volatile marriage of his cowardice and his natural showmanship plays like something out of an early season of Mad Men. Mike’s segment of ‘Amarillo,’ by contrast, is tooth-cracking noir, a washed-out story about a man we know is going to do, and die doing, everything he swears he’ll never go back to. The inevitability inherent in

Better Call Saul Season 1 Episode 9 Review – ‘Pimento’

Jackson Ball reviews the ninth episode of Better Call Saul

It’s hard to believe it but the inaugural season of Better Call Saul is almost over. As we enter the show’s penultimate episode, entitled ‘Pimento’, we find the McGill brothers side-by-side, marching into the battleground of civil law.

Warning! Spoilers Ahead – You have been warned!

Following on from the developments of Episode 8, Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) and Chuck (Michael McKean) find themselves embarking on a legal battle with enormous potential, unearthing the nefarious dealings of a local elderly home.

However, before focusing on the trials and tribulations of the suit-wearing siblings, we are treated to yet more golden moments from the effortlessly cool Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks). This time around Mike is doing a ‘little job on the side’; which involves him acting as protection for a particularly hapless individual who is about to enter into an underground, drug transaction.

Review: 'Better Call Saul' - 'Bingo': It takes a thief

Review: 'Better Call Saul' - 'Bingo': It takes a thief
A review of tonight's "Better Call Saul" coming up just as soon as I picture "The 25th Hour" starring Ned and Maude Flanders... "What are you doing?" -Mike "The right thing." -Jimmy The consensus on last week's episode was that it was easily the strongest hour of "Saul" to date, and a lot of you stated your desire to see the show pivot more into that direction, not only by giving Jonathan Banks more to do as Mike, but by returning to the dark emotional palette of "Breaking Bad" rather than the light comic antics of Jimmy McGill, elder care lawyer. When I spoke with Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould (and editor Curtis Thurber) about the show's ever-changing opening title sequence, we also briefly discussed the response to "Five-o," and Gilligan said that while they like having the ability to experiment — to do an episode where Mike is now the

Review: 'Better Call Saul' - 'Alpine Shepherd Boy': Electric company
A review of tonight's "Better Call Saul" coming up just as soon as I'm the one with the sex toilet... "I'm on the up-and-up. I will be good." -Jimmy Jimmy spends much of "Alpine Shepherd Boy" trying to find a professional niche, and the episode itself feels like the "Better Call Saul" creative team is still figuring out what exactly the series is, beyond a showcase for Bob Odenkirk and a chance to bring so much of the "Breaking Bad" team together again. Like the series' second episode, the hour is made up of a bunch of interesting individual pieces that don't entirely feel like part of the same whole. After a prologue detailing the immediate, traumatic aftermath of Chuck's sprint to steal his neighbor's newspaper, we spend a long time on Jimmy trying to cash in on the notoriety that came with his billboard "heroics," then get an

She's 68, he's 36: Age Gap Love returns, and we recap the first episode

Age Gap Love returned to Channel 5 last night (Monday, September 15), introducing a singleton looking for a young whippersnapper, and three couples from the UK and across the pond for our judging viewing pleasure...

Chris and Norma

First up were the seemingly happy and loved-up twosome 36-year-old Chris and his 68-year-old wife Norma, who was so heavily made-up she looked like she'd just been shot in the face with Homer Simpson's make-up gun. But despite all this, Chris somehow managed to look older.

The pair's love story began at a Butlins when Chris was just 18 and Norma 50. Although their relationship was frowned upon by friends and family, the couple married three years later - to "Titanic on the way up and Martine McCutcheon's 'Perfect Moment' on the way down" - and recently renewed their vows after almost two decades together.

We then followed Chris on his quest to become a successful music producer,

Rubber, Road, Brains and Souls: 5 Killer Car Flicks That Will Never Be Forgotten

Inanimate objects often wriggle their way into horror films. We’ve seen porcelain dolls slaughter naïve victims. We’ve seen video game characters decimate the unsuspecting. And, perhaps the most lifeless menace to brutalize fleeing victims, the evil vehicle.

Four wheels (in most cases) designed to do nothing but obliterate mankind. It’s a petrifying thought when you consider all the deranged drivers behind the wheel these days. Really, how many fatal road rage incidents occur on an annual basis?

And that’s precisely the reason that killer car movies are infinitely more frightening than any other pic focused in on insensible, pulseless antagonists. We know that cars, trucks and motorcycles (this one doesn’t earn mention in this particular article, but look into Rage, a really entertaining indie moto-flick) can lead to instantaneous expiration. We understand that, be it a legitimate malfunction, a drunken fool or a crazed driver behind the wheel,

Blu-ray Reviews: The Beast Within and Crawlspace

  • DailyDead
Scream Factory, ever busy preserving horror’s cinematic legacy, recently released another pair of cult classics on Blu-ray, The Beast Within and Crawlspace. Today, we have another double review taking a look back at these two often overlooked genre films.

The Beast Within: The Beast Within is the first theatrical screenplay by now genre vet, Tom Holland (Fright Night, Child’s Play). It follows a sickly 17-year-old named Michael MacCleary (Paul Clemens), who, as it turns out, has the misfortune of being the offspring of a violent encounter between a murderous swamp beast and his mother (Bibi Besch). And as Michael begins awkwardly transitioning into a man on the eve of his 18th birthday, he’s also forced to deal with the terrifying evil growing inside that he must overcome. Because, if he doesn’t face his true nature, Michael may forever be lost to his swamp beast lurking

Steven Tyler: Mick Jagger Got Me ‘So Wrong’ On ‘Saturday Night Live’

Mick recently impersonated Steven on 'SNL,' but the 'Idol' judge told HollywoodLife.com he was Not impressed! Mick Jagger may have the moves, but he doesn't have the howl -- well, at least according to Steven Tyler. In a skit during the May 19 episode of Saturday Night Live titled "So You Think You Can Dance At An Outdoor Music Festival," Mick gave a spot-on impression of the Aerosmith frontman and reality competition judge. Wearing a long Tyler-esque wig, a loud jacket and a scarf around his neck, Mick may have captured Steven's style, but not his iconic howl. "Ohhh, they got it so wrong; He could have done the yeah yeah yeah!," Steven told HollywoodLife.com, among other reporters May 23 after the American Idol finale. "I thought he looked good with long hair, I've always wanted him to grow it back." In a subtle dig at

'One Tree Hill' exclusive pic: Tyler Hilton revives Chris Keller

Over the summer, Zap2it was the first to tell you that Tyler Hilton was returning to "One Tree Hill" as the always controversial Chris Keller... and now we've got the first pic of a new, matured, more sophisticated Chris Keller in Season 9.

Okay, so we're lying about the maturity thing. Chris Keller returns in the season premiere in a flurry of juvenile jokes, and we promise, you'll feel like he never left. (And, more importantly, you'll wish he'd never left!)

First thing is first: Don't worry, Keller isn't in town to break up Haley and Nathan. We visited the Wilmington, Nc set in September and got the scoop from Hilton himself. "When [news broke] that I was coming back, everybody was like 'So excited! So excited! If you break up Nathan and Haley I'm going to kill you,'" he jokes. "I was hoping for a nanny position in the family.

Britney Spears' Iconic Vma History: Snakes, Stripteases And Smooches

We take a look back at pop princess' decade-plus track record before Sunday's tribute to the icon.

Britney Spears and Madonna kiss at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards

It's hard to believe there was ever a Video Music Awards without Britney Spears. Her iconic performances and eye-popping getups make her a perfect match for the outsized and outrageous Vma stage.

Britney herself told us that her bombshell kiss with Madonna in 2003 is her favorite Vma moment. "My greatest experience -- probably being with Madonna," she told MTV News. "The kiss was amazing. ... Being onstage with someone of that caliber is just iconic."

See Britney's biggest Vma moments for yourself in these photos.

But Spears certainly has a long list to choose from. And with that track record, it's no surprise that this year's VMAs will pay tribute to Britney. Let's dive into the

No ‘Hancock 2′ Anytime Soon

There’s been much talk about a sequel to the 2008 surprise superhero hit, Hancock, with conversation picking up particularly when it comes to the cast of Will Smith, Charlize Theron and Jason Bateman possibly returning to do another. Director Peter Berg said a few months ago that everyone was excited to return, but not long after that Bateman came out and said he hadn’t heard anything about him returning (we’re still not sure if that cluelessness was applicable to Smith and Theron, too).

However, when Berg sounded pretty excited about directing Hancock 2, that was before he landed the Battleship gig, a big-screen adaptation set for release in 2011 with a production start date of Spring 2010. That ties Berg up a lot for what I would guess would be the better part of a year. And that appears to be one of the big reasons why we shouldn’t expect Hancock 2 anytime soon.

Heat Blu-ray Review

Though there are notable exceptions (Ali, Last of the Mohicans), it is not an unreasonable stretch that Michael Mann has made a career telling stories about cops and robbers. From Thief (1981) and Manhunter (1986) through Miami Vice (2006) and Public Enemies (2009), he has produced tense explorations into the cerebral underpinnings of what makes players tick both in and outside of our legal system. Heat (1995) could very well be considered his crowning achievement in this territory, and its two most iconic scenes epitomize what the writer/director's classic crime drama is all about.

The no holds bar shootout in downtown Los Angeles during a broad daylight bank heist escape is one of the most thrilling firefights put to celluloid and has been among my favorites to sample out of context on DVD over the years (and its all that more awesome on Blu-ray!). Not just a great piece of realistic, machismo gunplay, what
