Why ABC handed Thursdays to Shonda Rhimes: Because she gets it

25 September 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Why ABC handed Thursdays to Shonda Rhimes: Because she gets it Shonda Rhimes and her “ShondaLand” gets that social media is a key ingredient in promoting your show. But that’s not all. As Alexander Hardy notes, "With a decade of primetime hits and misses under her belt, Rhimes is a master at creating bustling content, hooking viewers emotionally, and assaulting the senses with just the right amounts the saccharine and the stomach turning. Her characters—whether gladiators, doctors, or otherwise—are cocktails made with equal parts ridiculous, despicable, and histrionic.” Plus: How much TV can Shonda conquer?, how Shonda Rhimes revolutionized gay characters, and play the “Tgit” drinking game. “Scandal” is back: Here are 4 hopes for new season Season 4 needs to have more Olivia, less Olitz. Plus: “Scandal” stars tease Season 4, how to talk like a Gladiator, how to design an Olivia Pope-style living room, and 10 cryptic teases for the new season. »

Bob Odenkirk prepares to cut off Gillian Jacobs' toes on 'Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories'

25 September 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

If an actor from Breaking Bad and another from Community agreed to guest-star on your chilling and bizarre anthology/comedy series on Adult Swim, what you would have them do?

Well, if you are Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, and your show is called Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories, you make Bob Odenkirk a podiatrist named Dr. Stork who runs a successful toe-removal practice that a sunny patient (Gillian Jacobs) visits when she “doesn’t want” her toes anymore. I mean, who does?

Want your first taste of “Toes,” which airs at 12:15 a.m. tonight? Check this exclusive clip below. »

So to help, we enlisted two of the funniest guys we know—Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, the comic geniuses behind that Comedy Central laugh-factory Key & Peele—to guest-edit the issue for us.  

Turns out they’re better at our jobs than we are. Not only did the guys take the Must List and Bullseye pages off our hands, but they also went ahead »

AMC Bang The Gavel With New ‘Better Call Saul’ Teaser

23 September 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

February is when we re-encounter sleazy lawyer par excellence Saul Goodman, or rather Jimmy McGill, the man he was before he became the “legal” backbone of Breaking Bad. AMC are ramping up the anticipation with a fresh teaser, following last month’s debut snippet. It doesn’t add anything to the mix besides another look at Mr McGill plying his trade but obviously reminds us all just what we’re getting into…

The show is reportedly set in 2002 and features a different version of Bob Odenkirk’s antihero, though according to sources there are also parts set during the times of Bb.   Can the affable but slippery Odenkirk hold a season all by himself? He’ll need all of Saul’s bartering skills to do so. Created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould and co-starring Spinal Tap’s Michael McKean, Rhea Seehorn and Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut, the series »

23 September 2014 6:29 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Breaking Bad prequel got another brief clip on Tuesday, but this growing trend for 10-second teasers is making big TV events feel increasingly throwaway

Perhaps youre excited about Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad prequel due to premiere early next year. If so or even if you couldnt care less please click on the latest trailer above. (It wont take long.) Still excited? Or was 10 seconds of Bob Odenkirk trying, and failing, to fire up an unseen jury in a shabby courtroom barely enough to move the needle on your personal anticipation swing-o-meter? That clip comes billed as a teaser but its barely even a clip. Its a blip.

Brief Clip For Better Call Saul Has Bob Odenkirk Back In Action

22 September 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been almost a year since Vince Gilligan’s beloved and award-winning opus about one man’s spiralling descent into evil left the silver screen for good. Even though fans of Breaking Bad knew the end was in sight for one Walter White, it was still a bitter pill to swallow that Bryan Cranston would no longer don the Heisenberg guise.

Only, shortly after the series’ curtain call, AMC commissioned a spinoff show that took place before the events of Walt and Jessie and instead followed motor-mouthed lawyer, Saul Goodman. That show was Better Call Saul, and ahead of its premiere in early 2015, the network has unveiled a brief new clip that showcases the devious conman in action.

“I bet if we were in church right now, I’d get a big Amen! You with me ladies and gentlemen?” Saul asks, to a muted response.

New teaser for Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul

22 September 2014 8:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We got our first look at the upcoming Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul back in August, and now AMC has released another incredibly brief teaser for the series, which sees Bob Odenkirk’s corrupt lawyer in the courtroom. Check it out below…

Set six years before Saul Goodman meets Walter White. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is “fixer” Mike Ehrmantraut, a beloved character introduced in ‘Breaking Bad.’ The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts “criminal” in “Criminal lawyer.” The series’ tone is dramatic, wove with dark humor.

Better Call Saul is set to premiere in February 2015, with AMC airing the show in the States and Netflix snapping up the UK rights. »

AMC has unveiled another brief teaser trailer for the upcoming Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul. This short clip offers our first look at Saul Goodman in a courtroom, presumably giving a speech which draws less of a reaction than he thought. Check it out and catch the season premiere this February only on AMC.

Better Call Saul is the prequel to the award-winning series Breaking Bad, set six years before Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) became Walter White's lawyer. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and often against, Jimmy is "fixer" Mike Erhmantraut (Jonathan Banks), a beloved character introduced in Breaking Bad. The series will track Jimmy's transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts "criminal" in "criminal lawyer."

Eric Wareheim Talks Tim & Eric’S Bedtime Stories, Using Comedy to Cope With the Horror of the World

18 September 2014 12:18 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I wasn't sure what to expect from Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories.  I had seen Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim's previous show (Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!) and I've been fond of their humor for a long time, but I wasn't sure if this was just going to be another extension of the Awesome Show aesthetic.  It isn't.  Bedtime Stories is a much more cinematic effort, and it's brutally dark (yet amazingly funny).  With guest stars ranging from Zach Galifianakis to Gillian Jacobs to Bob Odenkirk, the show has a lot of variety, but also retains Heidecker and Wareheim's unique voice.  The three episodes I screened may not be for everybody, but those who connect with them will find them utterly sublime. I recently hopped on the phone with Eric Wareheim to talk about the show, how it differs from Awesome Show, and the brutality of life itself. »

Meet Jimmy McGill, the Star of Better Call Saul

25 August 2014 8:29 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

In an episode of Breaking Bad, which by the way cleaned up at the 66th Annual Emmy Awards earlier tonight in its swan song appearance, Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) recounts a moment in his past when he successfully pulled off convincing a woman he was Kevin Costner. He didn't accomplish this unlikely feat because he looks or sounds anything like Mr. Costner. Saul's reasoning is it worked because he truly believed he was Kevin Costner, and thus the poor woman picked up on his vibe.

This scene tells us that not only is Saul's back story incredibly intriguing, but he has experience in roleplaying to suit a purpose. It's no mystery that Saul Goodman will return in Better Call Saul in February 2015, but is Saul Goodman really his name? The answer is absolutely not.

‘Better Call Saul’, AMC’s spinoff of ‘Breaking Bad’, gets a new teaser

25 August 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With shows such as Mad Men and The Walking Dead, AMC has seen itself become a prominent force in television over the past few years. One of their most critically and commercially popular shows was Breaking Bad, which ended its five-season run last year. However, the end of the show was not the last the audience would see of lawyer Saul Goodman, as AMC soon announced a show revolving around the secondary character. Titled Better Call Saul, the show is co-created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, with Bob Odenkirk reprising his role and the series itself going back in time to examine the character before the events of Breaking Bad. A new teaser for the show has now been released, with Gould and Gilligan talking about the show’s direction. With the series set to premiere in February, the teaser can be seen below.
