Better Call Saul season 3 episode 3 review: Sunk Costs

1 hour ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The familiar is changing in the latest episode of Better Call Saul season 3...

This review contains spoilers.

3.3 Sunk Costs

What is there to say about Gus Fring that has not already been said countless times? That he is one of television’s greatest ever villains, if not characters, is hardly under dispute at this point, and while Breaking Bad certainly didn’t slump without him, his absence was keenly felt in the episodes that came after his demise. Transfixing, terrifying, fascinating and somehow believable due to a pitch perfect performance from Giancarlo Esposito, it was always a little hard to see how he would fit into Better Call Saul, and after Sunk Costs it’s still not quite clear, but the show is very aware »

Inside 'El Chapo' TV Series: How a Cartel Kingpin Became a Pop Outlaw

3 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The most memorable images of Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman paint him as an almost cartoonish figure: a stout, mustachioed man disappearing down a hole underneath the shower in his jail cell like a mole; a dirt-smeared fugitive being manhandled by military police as he's marched into prison. But the cartel kingpin who had dominated the drug trafficking industry for the past two and a half decades was a cunning, ruthless criminal, one who held positions in most wanted lists from the Chicago Crime Commission to Interpol. His submarines, airplanes and »

When Breaking Bad Meets Perfect Strangers: A Mashup

4 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Ever since I posted that article talking about Bronson Pinchot and Mark Linn-Baker reuniting for the first time in 25 years, I cannot get the Perfect Strangers theme song out of my head.  So far I’m not sick of it yet, as in I kind of like that it’s in my head.  But it’s only a matter of time before “standing tall, on the wings of my dreams” starts to get to me.  However, until I get to that point, I’m just singing away in my office here. I have a feeling that other Perfect Strangers fans out there are

Better Call Saul Recap: Family Court

16 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

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

Jimmy has a fool for a client this week on Better Call Saul, as he looks to represent himself in court after his brotherly tiff with Chuck.

Following last week’s ambush, he calls into the office and tells Francesca to push back all his appointments — since, you know, he’s expecting to be arrested any minute. He sits on the curb outside Chuck’s house, despondent, and Chuck comes out to tell him he’s pressing charges against Jimmy for his own good: “You won’t want to hear it, »

‘Better Call Saul’ Review: The Details Matter Most in A Tale of Two Schemes

16 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last Week’S Review: Jimmy Is, Once Again, ‘A Little Bit Crooked’

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

Case Summary

While technically last week gave us our first glimpse of Gus Fring, here we really see the man in action in his first one-on-one scene with Mike. It’s just one scene, early in the episode, but the menace Giancarlo Esposito can bring to one relatively subdued encounter remains a thing of wonder. Not that Mike is any less scary. Consider the calm but firm way he makes it clear to Gus that he is not done with the Salamancas, and his methodical actions over the course of the episode that lead directly to Salamanca henchmen getting arrested at the border.

Meanwhile, the consequences for Jimmy’s outrage get unveiled in stark detail: Chuck is pressing charges, in a deliberate attempt to get Jimmy disbarred — which will very likely happen if Jimmy ends up with a felony on his record. »

Better Call Saul Season 3 Episode 3 Review: Sunk Costs

16 hours ago | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The storylines for Mike and Jimmy are both are reaching a crescendo, and it sets up for some thrilling next few episodes.

On Better Call Saul Season 3 Episode 3, Mike finally met the mysterious Gus Fring, while Chuck's endgame regarding Jimmy was put into razor focus.

Mike's story pickk right up from the end of Better Call Saul Season 3 Episode 2, with his introduction to the man, the legend, Gus Fring.

Any scene with Mike and Gus together is awesome, and this one did Not disappoint. Like predators circling each other in the wild, they probed each other for any perceived weakness. 

Gus clearly respects Mike, or he would be dead by now. As we know, Gus is very good at "seeing things" in others.

Mike also has a healthy respect (and maybe even a little fear) for Gus, who's been a step ahead of him the whole time.

Aaron Paul And Emily Ratajkowski To Star In Welcome Home

16 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Hollywood Reporter brings word tonight that Breaking Bad alum Aaron Paul and Emily Ratajkowski have both signed on to star in Welcome Home, a thriller that’s got George Ratliff behind the camera to direct for Voltage Pictures.

In what sounds like a bit of a generic premise, the film will see the two stars play a couple who “spend a weekend at a vacation rental home in the Italian countryside in an attempt to repair their relationship, but soon become victims of the homeowner’s sinister plans.” With a script by David Levinson, Allan Mandelbaum and Tim and Trevor White are on board to produce the pic, which will head into production this May in Tuscany, with plans to sell the film at Cannes.

While this doesn’t sound like the most original pitch as far as thrillers go, Paul’s involvement certainly bodes well for the project. »

The Next ‘Silicon Valley?’ Watch The First Trailer For AMC’s New Comedy-Drama ‘Loaded’

24 April 2017 10:40 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The success of “Mad Men,” and then “Breaking Bad,” helped make AMC a major destination for TV drama in a way that the basic cable network had never been before, and then they unexpectedly became the home of the biggest show on TV thanks to “The Walking Dead.” But their success outside those shows, or spin-offs like “Better Call Saul” and “Fear The Walking Dead,” has been mixed so far.

Too closure for comfort: the death of definitive TV endings

24 April 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From Twin Peaks to Breaking Bad, television shows are no longer finished, living on in spin-offs or reboots. Why has the finale fallen out of favour?

Related: Do we need a Twin Peaks revival when TV is so much weirder now?

‘One thing I like about mysteries,” wrote Fran Lebowitz, the grandest of commentators, in the New York Times, “is that they end. Which is true of so little else.” Speaking for myself, I am still bereft after the not-really-over ending of S-Town, joining a great tradition of inconclusive podcasts (Serial, Missing Richard Simmons). They have an excuse, though, in that they’re about real people, whose lives rarely do end tidily.

‘Silicon Valley’: Thomas Middleditch Breaks Down Richard’s Big Gamble in the Season 4 Premiere

23 April 2017 7:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following interview contains spoilers for the “Silicon Valley” Season 4 premiere, Episode 1, “Success Failure.”]

Silicon Valley” saw big changes in its first episode of Season 4. What started with the Pied Piper team plotting to oust Richard as CEO ended with the tech genius (played by Thomas Middleditch) stepping down voluntarily in order to pursue his true passion: a new internet.

Given how long it took for the team to find a useful application for Richard’s original algorithm — first discovered in the Season 1 premiere — one has to wonder: Is Richard self-sabotaging?

“Oh, yeah. He totally is,” Middleditch said in a recent interview with IndieWire. “[In Season 3] Jack Barker was going to make Richard Chief Technical Officer. And if Richard knew what was good for him, he would’ve done that.”

The Battle for 2017’s Best TV Show

22 April 2017 9:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Samuel Brace on the battle for 2017’s best TV show…

2017’s television landscape has been set ablaze.

It’s been a truly joyous start to the year and already the contenders are piling up for the best show of 2017. Obviously it’s far too early to call, some prospects have only just started, and there are plenty yet to come this calendar year. But there are a few that have begun to separate themselves from the pack; one or two announcing themselves as the guys to beat.

So let’s take a look at what’s going down, at those involved in the battle for 2017’s best TV show.

We must begin with a show that has already completed its run – and in fact did so outside the Us late last year – and that show is of course the surprisingly stupendous The Young Pope. And it was truly a surprise. »

Nine Actors Who Reinvented Themselves and Revitalized Their Careers

21 April 2017 10:45 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Some actors manage to catch lightning in a bottle twice. It’s impressive enough to find your niche in Hollywood’s A-list even once. Occasionally, an actor will reinvent him/herself and begin a new phase of their careers that will be even more successful than it was before. Here are nine actors who had a cinematic rebirth. 

Liam Neeson-  Neeson has had a long career, and the early part of it was in dramatic roles. An intense dramatic actor, he apeared in films like The Dead Pool, Dark Man, Schindler’s List, Rob Roy and Les Miserables. His career rebirth came after playing Qui-Gon Jinn in Star Wars-Episode one: The Phantom Menace. After that, he got more offers for actions parts and recreated himself as an action hero in films like Gangs of NY, Batman Begins, Taken, Clash of the Titans, the A-Team, Unknown, the Grey, Taken 2, »

Powerless Season 1 Episode 9 Review – ‘Emergency Punch-Up’

21 April 2017 12:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rachel Bellwoar reviews the ninth episode of Powerless

To answer the question last week’s “Green Fury” proposed, about whether meanness passes for comedy these days, we have Van saying, in reference to a senior coworker, “Dorothy can ride in my chopper. I mean, she’s so old maybe I’ll just drop her off in heaven.”

What’s worse, and what prevents us from blaming his sense of humor, is that he’s not the author of his own material. He’s the voice box. Jokes are being earpiece fed to Van by writers for the Harvard Lampoon and Suite Life of Zack & Cody. Whatever regard you have for Zack & Cody, there’s a credibility to having outside writers provide Van with his lines. As professional comedians they should know what they’re talking about and their results would agree. Van’s employees laugh, and their chuckles aren’t »

‘Girlboss’ Review: Britt Robertson Can’t Save This Frustratingly Stagnant Tale of 20-Something Malaise

21 April 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Midway through the “Girlboss” premiere, Britt Robertson’s Sophia Amoruso walks down the street, tears pouring down her face, angrily shouting into her phone. She just got fired, and it first appears as though she feels the dismissal unjust. But then, just as she’s about to tick off a third reason her boss sucks, Sophia stops herself, and says, “Why am I such an asshole?”

It’s a question that had been building throughout our introduction to Sophia and asked in a moment that feels primed for self-discovery. In the span of 15 minutes, she’s been inexplicably cruel to her father, invited herself into a free, semi-permanent residency with a stranger, and made herself unreasonably late for work. She was fired not just for being perpetually late, but also for taking a personal phone call on company time, stealing her boss’ lunch, and unapologetically eating it in front of her. »

Colcoa Fest Brings TV Series into the Fold

21 April 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In 2015, one year shy of the Colcoa French Film Festival’s 20th anniversary, festival executive

producer and artistic director Francois Truffart decided to join the quiet revolution sweeping film festivals across the globe and bring television into the fold.

Toronto, Sundance and SXSW are among the major festival players who have all added television selections to their lineups in the past five years, a move spurred by cinematic, serial hits including “True Detective” and “Breaking Bad” that have captivated audiences and shattered preconceptions about the boundaries between TV and film. Truffart, who has led programming at Colcoa since 2004, was eager to prove to American audiences that on the French small screen, the content was equally intriguing.

“It’s very important

for the me that the audience understand that television is not something that is under cinema,” says Truffart. “For us, it has the same quality and the same value. At the same time, we »
