Could Walt’s Gun-in-the-Trunk Plan in Breaking Bad’s Finale Work?

4 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Warning: If you haven't watched the end of Breaking Bad, don't read this. The entire post is concerned exclusively with its final moments. In the final episode of Vince Gilligan's Breaking Bad, Walter White allows himself to be captured by skinhead drug dealers in order to save Jesse Pinkman. But Walt has a plan: An M60 machine gun — the kind of heavy-duty monster of a machine gun that gets mounted on armored vehicles — is rigged to a rotating machine in the trunk of his car. It goes off, launching a torrent of bullets into the skinheads' hideout while Walt hits the floor, out of harm's way. The gun tears apart the bad guys while Walt survives. For a while.  The show is widely considered one of the best ever, but the finale did earn some puzzled reactions. Not that Breaking Bad was ever a realistic show, but the machine-gun-in-the-car-trunk »

FX Cooking Up Sons Of Anarchy Spinoff Series; Kurt Sutter Back On Board

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

Depending on your general attitude toward reboots, companion series and spinoffs, news of a Sons of Anarchy spinoff focusing on the Mayan motorcycle gang will either elicit a few groans or make your day. Whatever the case, Entertainment Weekly can confirm that an offshoot of the popular series is indeed on the cards, barely six months after Jax Teller and Co. raced off the small screen after the seventh and final season.

Taking a leaf from AMC’s book with Better Call Saul – which performed remarkably well, even escaping the Heisenberg shaped shadow of Breaking Bad – this new take on Sons of Anarchy will exist in a separate universe while still retaining the overall tone of the core series. In fact, by focusing on the Mayans, a Hispanic motorcycle gang that were recurring characters in the original series, FX is giving the new project the perfect chance to stand on its own two feet. »

‘Better Call Saul’ Star Jonathan Banks on Breaking Records and 5 Other Emmy Nominee Questions

7 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jonathan Banks has received a Best Supporting Actor Emmy nomination for playing Mike Ehrmantraut on two different shows, “Breaking Bad” and spinoff “Better Call Saul,” but the actor hopes that’s where the character’s journey stops. Kelsey Grammer holds the record for nominations as the same character on three different shows — Frasier Crane on “Cheers,” “Frasier” and “Wings” — and Banks has no aspirations to compete with his friend. “I hope I don’t play the same character on three different shows!” the actor said, laughing. “Kelsey’s wonderful, Kelsey’s a friend and more power to him.” Also Read: »

Watch: 'Mythbusters' Tackles the 'Breaking Bad' Trunk-Mounted Machine Gun

8 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: 5 Key Facts About the Sound of 'Better Call Saul': It's Not 'Breaking Bad' and How the Humor is Huge Last year's "Breaking Bad" finale may have wrapped up five seasons of raising hell in Albuquerque, but what Discovery's "Mythbusters" found most interesting was Walter White's machine gun booby trap from the series finale. "Felina" saw Walt utilizing an M60 machine gun hooked into the trunk of his car to take out a slew of his enemies at once, and "Mythbusters" Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman took on the hefty task of deciding on whether or not the feat was possible. Discovery aired this episode earlier this summer, but the video above was released just recently, allowing viewers to replay the test and judge the plausibility of slaughtering a room full of white supremacists with a remote-controlled machine gun. Savage and Hyneman had the added bonus of testing their »

Ok, then check out the Mythbusters guys as they built and use the trunk machine gun Bryan Cranston’s Walter White deployed on those unsuspecting neo-Nazi turds in the final minutes of the Emmy-winning AMC drama.

‘Mythbusters’ Tests Out Final ‘Breaking Bad’ Showdown

11 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Oh, so it’s really the “Mythbusters” team who are the ones who knock?

With all the loose ends tied up in the “Breaking Bad” finale, which aired in 2013 on AMC, there are some things in particular that fans still want to know: Would it really have been possible for Bryan Cranston’s anti-hero, Walter White, to build his ammo-filled booby trap? And would that mechanical version of “Scarface’s” “little friend” scene have actually taken town the hive of skinheads, like the show suggested?

Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, who host Discovery’s “Mythbusters,” recently went on the case to test both questions. “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan, ever the good sport about these things, even came along for the ride.

The results? Better than they were during “Mythbuster’s” “Breaking Bad” special in 2013, which debunked the effects of both hydrofluoric acid in a bathtub and of solid mercury fulminate thrown to the ground. »

Breaking Bad’s Jesse Pinkman Meets C-3P0 at Jabba’s Private Domicile

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

Just because Breaking Bad is over doesn’t mean the show doesn’t live on.  New fans are watching the show on a daily basis through DVD and services like Netflix.  And old fans continue to regurgitate content from the show in one way or another.  And please let us not forget about how good a show Better Call Saul is!  Can’t wait for season 2 to start on that one. Speaking of regurgitating content and twisting it around a bit, one fan decided that it would be funny to mix Breaking Bad with Star Wars.  In doing so he recreated the scene in which C-3Po is outside Jabba the Hut’s private layer trying to get in. The droid gives a nice knock on the door but is greeted by a not too welcoming Jesse Pinkman who proceeds to use his classic moniker. God I hope the new Star Wars references Breaking… »

Yeah, Science! MythBusters Puts Breaking Bad Finale's Epic Trunk Machine Gun to the Test

12 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

You remember the Breaking Bad finale and how absurd some of it was—and we mean absurd in the best ways possible. Well, MythBusters is back to drop some science on us about whether Walter White (Bryan Cranston) could've really done that whole trunk/gun deal. If you haven't seen the finale yet, why not? Oh, and stop reading. In the finale, Walter rigged a machine gun to pop out of his trunk and he saved Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) from captivity. It was a happy ending with lots of dead bodies...Jesse got away and Walter died. Ok, maybe it wasn't very happy. But there was a lot of science involved. Was it real science? Let Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman show you. The two assembled everything Walter had in »

Straight Outta Compton review: A fully loaded rap fairy tale of not giving a f**k

16 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It would have been hard to make a bad film out of a story and soundtrack as vital and compelling as Nwa's Straight Outta Compton, the riotous 1989 rap record that didn't so much break the charts and shape a genre as part-raze a city and throw a big, dirty spotlight on a country divided.

Stick it on now and it'll still blow away most things you've had on your stereo this year. Its anger tells its own story, visual accompaniment not necessary.

Yet against a backdrop of police brutality, culminating in the infamous Lapd beating of taxi driver Rodney King that triggered the La riots, this self-dramatisation of the group's controversial and life-changing rise to fame and wealth, fuelling the ever-growing status of its stars Dr Dre and Ice Cube in the process, makes for an unlikely crowd-pleaser. It made $60m, more than double its budget, in its opening weekend in the Us. »

TV Is Not the New Film, But It’s Ok That Festivals Are Blurring the Lines

26 August 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Peter Debruge: Looks like Toronto is the latest film festival to add a television section to its lineup. These days, everywhere from Sundance to SXSW to the Canadian “festival of festivals,” smallscreen content is getting a big push, which is intriguing — and even ironic — for all sorts of reasons (ironic because the state of distribution being what it is, many of the films in Toronto will end up trickling down to VOD, rather than ever getting a commercial theatrical run). On one hand, the trend isn’t exactly new: Classy longform features like “Carlos” (which premiered at Cannes in 2010), “Top of the Lake” (Sundance 2013) and “Olive Kitteridge” (Venice 2014) made their bows at top-tier film fests before going on to air as miniseries on Canal Plus, BBC Two and HBO, respectively.

But Toronto’s Primetime program — like SXSW’s Episodics, which launched last year — represents something different: Rather than expanding the »

‘Ray Donovan’ Star Liev Schreiber on His Toughest Emmy Competition and 5 Other Nominee Questions

26 August 2015 4:03 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Liev Schreiber received his first Emmy nomination for Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his role as the titular fixer on the third season of Showtime’s “Ray Donovan” last month. The nominee is in good company, being in the same category as eight-time nominee Jon Hamm, three-time nominee Kevin Spacey, previous winners Kyle Chandler and Jeff Daniels, and Bob Odenkirk of AMC’s “Breaking Bad” prequel “Better Call Saul.” But to Schreiber, being nominated is a strange one. “I struggle with the idea of comparing people’s work and art,” Schreiber told TheWrap. “The notion of giving awards or putting a competitive. »

Kurt Sutter Planning 'Sons of Anarchy' Spin-Off Series

26 August 2015 2:20 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Nine months after Sons of Anarchy reached the end of the road and its seven-season run, creator Kurt Sutter has revealed that he is currently developing a spin-off series based on the motorcycle-gang drama. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Sutter said that the new series would revolve around the Mayans Motorcycle Club, a rival gang from the original series.

In Sons of Anarchy, the Oakland, California-based, heroin-peddling Mayans were adversaries of the Samcro crew. However, as the series developed, a business relationship spawned between the two gangs. Sutter »

There's more television programming than there ever has been before, and while a glut of prestige shows like "Breaking Bad," "Mad Men" and "Game of Thrones" have prompted many to call this a golden age of TV drama, isn't it also the golden age for comedy? Consider singular creative visions like Lena Dunham's "Girls" and Louis C.K.'s "Louie," or the wide variety of comedians showcasing their work on Comedy Central like Amy Schumer and "Key and Peele." Let's not forget the way John Oliver has taken Jon Stewart's model of satire to the next level on "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver."

'Sons Of Anarchy' Spinoff In Development

26 August 2015 11:32 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Spinoffs and reboots aren't just relegated to the film world. Television executives have figured out that a way to keep popular, existing brands going is by continuing the stories in a sideways manner. Of course, AMC has achieved this with great success via "Breaking Bad" offshoot "Better Call Saul," and now FX is going to give it a try for one of their recently retired programs. Read More: Review: Antoine Fuqua Smith's 'Southpaw' Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Forest Whitaker & Rachel McAdams  EW reveals that Kurt Sutter is currently developing a "Sons Of Anarchy" spinoff. There aren't many details, but the twist is that this new show will focus on the Mayans, the Hispanic motorcycle gang featured in the original show. Right now, Sutter is generating the idea, with the plan to executive produce and hand off showrunning duties to someone else. Good idea? Bad idea? Or should Sutter move on? »

In another 'Sopranos' classic, Tony has to fight off two assassins

26 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to the penultimate installment of our summer trip through "The Sopranos" season 1. When I revisited early seasons of "The Wire," as well as the whole run of "Deadwood," I did separate versions of each review for newcomers and veterans, but over time realized that the newcomers weren't commenting much, if at all, and that it therefore made sense to simply do one review. Any significant spoilers for episodes beyond the one being reviewed will be contained in a separate section at the end of the review; so long as you avoid that, and the comments, you should be fine. Thoughts on the twelfth episode, “Isabella," coming up just as soon as I buy you some sweat socks at The Sports Authority... "To tell you the truth, I feel pretty good." -Tony I'll be honest: even though I'd never specifically recapped these early "Sopranos" seasons, I've written so much about the show over the years, »
