"A.K.A. Jessica Jones" Meets 'The Purple Man'.

2 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek the Marvel Comics' origin of 'The Purple Man', on the news that the character, to be played by actor David Tennant, will be the main bad guy in the new Marvel/Netflix live-action TV series, "A.K.A. Jessica Jones", starring Krysten Ritter ("Breaking Bad"):

'The Purple Man' debuted in Marvel's "Daredevil" vol. 1 #4 (October 1964), only to re-emerge as an enemy of 'Jessica Jones' and her husband 'Luke Cage', with his body producing pheromones allowing him to control the actions of others.

"...'Dr. Zebediah Killgrave' was born in Rijeka, Yugoslavia. As a physician turned international spy, he was sent to infiltrate a chemical refinery. 

"During the mission, he was accidentally doused with a chemical that turned his hair and skin purple. Caught outright and questioned, Killgrave offered a weak, inadequate alibi to his captors.

"Much to his surprise, he was believed and released. Several more incidents of »

Tom Kenny, the Voice of SpongeBob, Watches Breaking Bad

3 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Tom Kenny, the voice of SpongeBob Squarepants, is all about cartoons all the time - almost. "Cartoons are almost 100 percent of my TV viewing," Kenny told People at The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water premiere in New York City on Saturday. While that doesn't surprise us, this did: "My 17-year-old and I just started watching Breaking Bad, but we're like five years behind everyone else." Well, Spongebob and Walter White do have some similarities - they both have huge fan bases. SpongeBob's following is a bit younger though, as proven by the hundreds of kids who crowded the N. »

10 WWE Clichés That Need To Die

6 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The nature of the WWE means that certain clichés are inevitable; heels will always act a certain way and John Cena will always make terrible jokes. It’s ultimately easier to accept some more than others, as there are many parts of wrestling which are inevitable.

However, others have become more and more infuriating over the years. Even the most casual of fans will pick up on these, while those who are passionate about the WWE will often find themselves reaching their breaking point thanks to the high level of repetitiveness. Take the rule of reverse momentum. 90% of the time, the Superstar on the winning side of a rivalry on the final show before a PPV will end up lose on the Sunday.

Wresting, and the WWE in particular, is what it is. That’s why we love it! However, in a world with TV shows like Breaking Bad and True Detective, »

"Better Call Saul"

18 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek more clips of footage from AMC's "Breaking Bad" prequel series "Better Call Saul", debuting February 8, 2015, starring Bob Odenkirk reprising his role as Irish 'criminal' lawyer 'Jimmy McGill' aka 'Saul Goodman':

"...set six years before 'Saul Goodman' meets 'Walter White', 'Jimmy McGill' is a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny...

"...and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. 

"Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is 'Mike Ehrmantraut' (Jonathan Banks). The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts 'criminal' in 'Criminal lawyer'..."

"He seems to be a pretty happy-go-lucky guy, and that makes him everything that 'Walter White' is not, " said creator Vince Gilliagn about Saul Goodman, "...and that also makes for tricky drama. When I say drama, even in a comedy, you want drama, you want tension and conflict, and a character that at heart seems at peace with himself is intrinsically undramatic. »

Why Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere could be the next Doctor Who

31 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Following the news that another hopeful heir apparent to the Saturday night Doctor Who slot - fantasy series Atlantis - has bitten the dust, what should the BBC should try next?

The return of Saturday night family adventure

Not so very long ago, the idea of an early evening adventure show on BBC One - on Saturday night no less - that the whole family would happily sit down to enjoy was seen as impossible. That time had passed, the audience was now too fragmented, there's just no way you could get people from eight to 89 to all sit together and watch the same narrative show.

Then, the BBC took a risk. With big swingers like writer Russell T Davies and then-bbc drama commissioner Jane Tranter fighting its corner, that old, dead TV legend Doctor Who lurched back into life... and it worked. People of all ages tuned in, the viewing figures stacked up, »

30 January 2015 8:15 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

CBS on Friday night ordered another two drama pilots, each with interesting pedigrees.

Having already made a production commitment to the project, CBS officially greenlit a pilot for Sneaky Pete, which is being written and exec-produced by House creator David Shore and Breaking Bad Emmy winner Bryan Cranston.

The series follows a thirtysomething con man who upon leaving prison assumes the identity of a cellmate and then hides from debtors by toiling for his “new” family’s bail bond business. There, he uses his prowess to take down bad guys worse than himself, all while his pretty “cousin” grows suspicious of his motives. »

Review: AMC’s “Better Call Saul”

30 January 2015 1:55 PM, PST | IMDb Blog - All the Latest | See recent IMDb Blog - All the Latest news »

 

Central to “Breaking Bad’s” appeal was the idea that any person, even a mild-mannered teacher who had been kicked around all his life, can twist into a villain. Walter White, the man who became the Southwest’s meth king, started out as a decent husband and father. He was slow to anger, hardworking, undervalued and underpaid.

But let’s not forget that the person who watered the seed from which Walt’s vast meth enterprise sprung was a shady lawyer named Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk). Remember? Saul approached Walt in his classroom not long after one of Walt’s dealers was pinched, and advised the teacher not to quit manufacturing crank, but to go bigger.

“I’m no Vito Corleone,” Walt insisted.

“No sh-t — right now, you’re Fredo!” Saul replied. “But you know, with some sound advice, and the proper introductions, who knows?”

No kidding. Not even Saul »

David Tennant talks Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones

30 January 2015 5:23 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of days ago it was revealed that former Doctor Who star David Tennant has signed on to the cast of Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones, where he’ll portray Zebediah Killgrave, a.k.a. The Purple Man. Speaking to the Radio Times, Tennant has shared his excitement over joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe:

“I grew up on Marvel comics, so it’s very exciting to be part of their ever expanding entertainment empire. It’s great. I love the movies, I love the TV shows that they do, so I’m very pleased to be part of one. I grew up an absolute devotee to the worlds of Marvel, so the fact that they’ve expanded now into TV and film is something that I think I sort of fantasied about when I was younger. So now to be part of it, to be on the other side of it is a thrill. »

Saul Goodman’s Time to Shine at ‘Better Call Saul’ Premiere

29 January 2015 11:43 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With little meth in sight, the cast and crew of “Better Call Saul” gathered Thursday night at L.A. Live for the AMC/Sony Pictures TV drama’s premiere, with “Breaking Bad” cast members including Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, R.J. Mitte and Betsy Brandt in attendance, along with Jonathan Banks, who also has a role in the new series.

No meth, of course, because this isn’t Walter White’s show — it’s Saul Goodman’s. Or, more appropriately, it’s Jimmy McGill’s, as the story begins in 2002, long before Jimmy McGill, attorney at law, becomes Saul Goodman, modern-day Tom Hagen.

Bob Odenkirk, who played Goodman in “Breaking Bad” and stars as McGill in “Better Call Saul,” said that to go back in time to Saul’s origins required completely revisiting the character.

“I did kind of clean slate it and I took these scripts that »

Although Kitty didn’t kill her tormentor Del Gruner (guest star Stuart Townsend) after capturing him, she did leave him badly scarred. Captain Gregson made it clear that he would have to track down the culprit of the crime, even if it was a name he knew, leaving Kitty no choice but to flee New York City.

“Do you know what I haven’t said to anyone in a really long time? I love you. Isn’t that the saddest thing? »
