Can a Saul Goodman show ever hope to replace the sublime genius that is Breaking Bad? Probably not. TV spinoffs, however, are responsible for some of the most beloved shows in the medium’s history. Consider that Frasier, The Colbert Report, Melrose Place, Angel and The Simpsons were all spinoffs. This list is of characters who deserve their own spin-off.
“Trial by combat, deciding a man’s guilt or innocence in the eyes of the gods by having two other men hack each other to pieces. It tells you something about the gods.”
He was my nephew as well, so what is that? Fratricide is brothers. Filicide is sons. Nepoticide, that’s the one. Matricide, patricide, infanticide, suicide, there’s no kind of killing that doesn’t have its own word.”
"Laughing at another person’s misery was the only thing that made me feel like everyone else."
“I was the smartest person I knew, certainly I had the wherewithal to unravel the mysteries that lay at the heart of a moron."
Far too much has been written about great men, and not nearly enough about morons.”

"You got some self-loathing to do this morning, that's fine, but it ain't worth losing your hands over."
"I don't sleep, I just dream."
"I had my time where I wondered if this was all in my head. That time passed."
"I'm through talking to you like a man."
"Life's barely long enough to get good at one thing. So be careful what you get good at."
"Just gotta look a man in his eyes. It's all there. Everybody wears their hunger and their haunt you know? Just gotta be honest about what can go on up here. The locked room."
"It's Thursday and it's past noon. Thursday is one of my days off. On my days off I start drinking at noon. You don't get to interrupt that."
"My life's been a circle of violence and degredation long as I can remember. I'm ready to tie it off."
"I transferred from robbery to narco, started hittin' it 24/7. Street rips, knocking down doors. Within three months I was ripping off couriers or ending up in a Ramada Inn with a couple of fu**ckin' 8-balls...Oh yeah. Somewhere in there Claire left and somewhere in there I emptied a nine into a crank head for injecting his infant daughter with crystal…Said he was trying to purify her. State attorney gave me one chance to stay out of jail. Said you can keep your profile but we're going to make you our wild man junkie. So they did. They made me a floater, a trick. Any agency or department that needed a deep undercover narco, they got me. And there was no fu**cking expiration date, baby."

If cinema is a drug, then in the special section of its pharmacological spectrum reserved for the hallucinogens, sit the movies of David Lynch. Despite padding his resume with myriad short films, videos, installations, and, erm, nightclubs, Lynch's reputation as the reigning King of Cult is founded on just ten feature films and one TV show. The latter, the endlessly adored, fascinating, epochal "Twin Peaks" which he co-created with Mark Frost, will return with Lynch writing and directing, for an anticipated third season in 2017 via Showtime. But as for Lynch and movies, well, only time can tell, but nothing he's said recently indicates any sort of serious desire or intention to return to the medium.
Perhaps that's the cleverest way that Lynch has made junkies of us all: by throttling down the supply of his "product." Because they're not just mind-addling psychotropic substances, his movies are highly addictive, in that once you've found your gateway title (for many it was "Twin Peaks" though for the more cinematically inclined it was often "Blue Velvet") you find yourself quickly jonesing for more. Having made so relatively few features across the four decades of his career, Lynch has more or less guaranteed that the only option for the hooked is to go back and revisit them time and again: thankfully, his is one of the rare catalogues that rewards that practice. Somehow, Lynch's output seems to continually expand in meaning and character, despite the fact that it remains stubbornly enumerated, since 2006, at an uncharacteristically round, decimal ten titles. Here's our assessment of those films: administer intravenously.
His trademarks are numerous and oft-imitated to this day: extreme close-ups, wide shots with incredible depth and clarity, prominent scores and memorable rogues. Leone’s West was a gritty, sweaty place, populated not by charming cowboys but by scruffy gunslingers. The Spaghetti Western – a term often used for Italo-Westerns alone – was certainly born out of Leone’s style, but the Western genre on the whole owes a credit to his filmography.
Leone found success with other genres as well, and his association with Westerns shouldn’t cloud the fact that his mastery of technique and tone could have been applied anywhere. By focusing on Westerns, Leone was able to breathe new life into a lagging genre.
What follows is a rundown of the filmography of Sergio Leone, highlighting the elements that make his best films so deserving of praise nearly half a century after their release.
But success and personal and professional achievement are still fully possible in spite of that frustration. Just one example of this is a recent Business Insider profile of 15 CEOs who have learning disorders, including Apple founder and CEO Steve Jobs, among others. Reachers have suggested famous artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and Pablo Picasso may have also suffered from learning disorders.
And in Hollywood, a handful of stars have come forward in recent years to share their experiences with dyslexia and provide hope for others. The following is just a handful of those famous names and faces linked to to the disorder, as well as how some of them dealt with the symptoms. Their stories serve to inspire others struggling with dyslexia.
Here are the names of some of the many talented and accomplished individuals who are dyslexic, or historic figures who had the pattern of talents and learning difficulties associated with dyslexia.
This is a list of non-pornographic, English language films containing at least 150 spoken uses of the word fu**ck. Also no stand-up or documentary like the movie, "Fu**ck - a documentary on the Word".
I liked the idea of a gritty cop drama. But what we got was this poorly written pices of sh**it. The showrunner said the took inspiration from THE WIRE!! THE WIRE one of the best shows of all time. So i thought it would be really good. Looks like i was wrong.
So insted of the *beep* that is called Gotham I would like it to be about the corruption in Gotham and about that just because you have a bage it dosen't mean you are a good guy. My dream would be if HBO took on this honorable task, to make a good live-action Batman TV-show. A show like this need great writting and a massive budget to be great and Gotham lacks in both.
I want it to focus on mostly Gordon and Bruce. Gordon with all the tragedies in his life, that comes of being the only honest cop in Gotham. I also want it to focus on why and how Bruce became Batman. Above all i want it to focus on Batman and Gordon's developing relationship. I don't want the show to be to long, about 50 episods would be great. It should be a brutally dark cop drama that is heavily influenced by The Wire and True Detective. The characters in the show are human, and you really get an in depth look in to there heads.
I want the first season to be about how Gordon came to Gotham and got to know Batman (similar to Batman: Year One). Also we gets to see how Gordon is fighting against the very corrupt policeforce. We also get a depper look on how and why Bruce Wayne became Batman.
Season two, focus on Batman and Gordon's developing relationship gets stronger and how they are gonna take down the mob (and some supervillans).
Also James, Jr. is born, Barbara discover her husband Gordon is having an affair with his partner, Sarah Essen. Barbara leaves Gotham with their son.
In season tree, we see more of the relationship Batman and Gordon have in the animated series they are good friends with the same goal. The third season is the darkest season of all after the first two episodes. In this season The Joker gets introduced. Gordons new wife Sarah gets killed by the Joker. The Joker also paralyz Gordons nephew.
In the fourth season of the show, we meet Batman in a time of disorder and despair. Bruce doubt his abilities, and belives he can't protect Gotham and the people most importent to him. This is the result of The Joker's rampage in the previous season. Bruce thinkes that Batman does more harm than good and has decided to retire. After the destruction by The Joker, the city is in ruins and Batman haven't been seen for months. The street are ran over by criminals. Gordon now back on the force after his paid leave. He sees what has happend to Gotham and decides to make it his goal in Life to stop crime once again.
In the fifth and final season, Batman is back and for the first time it looks like Batman and Gordon is winning the war on crime. The crime rates are the lowest in Gotham in over a hundred years. Batman and Gordon are flushing out the corrupt politicians and cops in Gotham by following the money. Batman and Gordon also bring down the mob once again.
This season will be more of a political thriller than an classic Batman film with unrealistic villains and action. Don't get me wrong i love that, but this will be more of a realistic take on Batman. Also this will give the character development that Gordon deserves. And of course will there be some super villains in the last season as well.
I don't thinke they should begin at the end of The Dark Knight trilogy. Nolan's trilogy is over now. I thinke they should make a whole new trilogy without any of the old actors.
I would like to see a mixture of classic noir movies and modern age of batman comics, Very similar to Batman: The Animated Series but much darker and violent.
(All villains on this list or anyone from the Justice League should of course not be involved in the films but I chose an actor to portray them anyway)

The game opens with Lee on his way to prison after his conviction in Atlanta, Georgia. En route, the sheriff's car in which he is travelling strikes a walker and careens off-road. Lee is knocked unconscious, awakening hours later to find the sheriff lying outside the vehicle. Fleeing the car, Lee is attacked by the officer, who has turned into a walker, and Lee is forced to kill him. He takes shelter in a nearby home, discovering Clementine hiding in her tree house. After learning that her parents had previously left for Savannah, Lee offers to protect and care for Clementine, and help her find them.
They then travel to a nearby farmstead, owned by Hershel Greene, where Lee is introduced to Kenny, his wife Katjaa and their son Duck. When Shawn, Hershel's son, is lost to a walker attack, Hershel banishes the group from his home. Lee and Clementine join Kenny and head towards Macon. There, they find shelter with several other survivors in a drugstore owned by Lee's family, a fact he keeps to himself. While trying to recover medicine from the pharmacy, they set off the alarm and are forced to abandon the store, finding safety in a motel with a defensible perimeter.
Though protected from walkers, Lee and the survivors struggle to find food, and after three months, are at the last of their supplies. However, they are then approached by the St. Johns, a family who own a nearby dairy. The group exchange gasoline to power the St. Johns' electric fence for food and shelter. However, while on the dairy, Lee and Kenny discover the St. Johns have engaged in cannibalism, and the group flee, leaving the St. Johns to their fate as the farm is overrun by walkers. As they return to the motel, they find a seemingly abandoned car full of provisions, which they share out amongst themselves.
The group soon learns that the St. Johns had a deal with local bandits; they would give the bandits food and in exchange the bandits would not attack the dairy. Upon the death of the St. Johns, however, the bandits now turn their attention to the motel. They launch an attack that attracts walkers, and the group is forced to abandon their base and supplies. During the attack, Duck is bitten. After driving for a time, the group come upon a freight train. Lee and Kenny manage to get the train working, and the group head towards Savannah, with the intention of finding a boat and getting out onto the ocean, away from the walkers. During the trip, Duck's condition worsens, and the group stop to deal with him before he turns. Katjaa commits suicide over the loss, and Kenny and Lee are forced to euthanize Duck.
Nearing Savannah, Clementine's walkie-talkie goes off, with an unknown man telling her she will be safe once he deals with Lee and the group, and promising her that her parents are waiting for her. The group takes shelter in a well fortified mansion, and Lee and Kenny head towards the pier to find a boat. There, they encounter Molly, who informs them there are no boats left in the city, and whatever useful supplies do remain are being held in Crawford, a fortified community who don't permit the elderly, the sick, or children into their ranks. When walkers attack, Lee is separated from the group, and as he makes his way back to the mansion through the sewers, he encounters Vernon and his group hiding in a hospital morgue. Vernon returns with Lee back to the house, where Clementine has discovered a boat in the shed. It lacks fuel and a battery, but both items can be attained in Crawford. Lee and the group plan an invasion, but once there, they find the entire population has turned into walkers. They quickly gather the necessary supplies and leave. Vernon departs, but not before warning Lee that he doesn't think he is an appropriate father-figure for Clementine, and offering to take care of her instead.
The next morning, Lee wakes to find Clementine missing, and in his haste to find her, he is attacked and bitten by a walker. Initially suspecting Vernon, Lee finds the morgue abandoned, when Clementine's walkie-talkie goes off. The man on the other end reports that he has Clementine and challenges Lee to come get her. Clementine is able to reveal to Lee where she is being held, and Lee heads back to the house only to find that the boat and other supplies have been stolen by Vernon's group. As the group head to rescue Clementine, Kenny stays behind to distract a hoard of walkers. As they cross the rooftops, Lee is separated from the others, and he instructs the survivors to wait for him and Clementine at the edge of town, making them promise to care for her after he is gone.
Lee makes his way to the hotel where Clementine is held. The man holding her explains that he was the owner of the car that the group ransacked after leaving the dairy, and as a result, he lost his family to walkers. Lee realizes the man has gone insane, and with Clementine's help, kills him. He then helps to cover Clementine in walker blood, disguising her from the other walkers. As they leave the hotel, however, Clementine spots her parents, both of whom have turned into walkers, and Lee collapses to the ground. Clementine drags him into a jeweler's, pulling the shutter down and locking them in. However, Lee realizes he is near conversion, and instructs her to escape the city and meet the other survivors at the edge of town. In his final moments, Lee guides Clementine past a walker near the backdoor, and says goodbye to her. The player can choose to have Lee instruct Clementine to either kill him or leave him be and become a walker, or can opt to do nothing, where Clementine will choose an action based on the culmination of the player's choices within the game.
After the game's credits, Clementine is seen walking in a field by herself. She spots two figures in the distance. After a moment, they stop walking and turn to look in her direction. She holds her gun out nervously as they watch her.
In Mexico, Marston initially sides with Mexican Army Colonel Agustín Allende and his right-hand man Captain Vicente de Santa , to help put down a rebellion in return for Allende delivering Escuella and Williamson to him. However, Allende attempts to betray Marston, forcing him to side with the rebels. With the help of elderly gunslinger Landon Ricketts , rebel leader Abraham Reyes , and Luisa , one of Reyes' many lovers, Marston leads an assault on the El Presidio fortress, where they discover Escuella, who attempts to bargain for his life by revealing Williamson has been under Allende's protection. Marston and Reyes storm Allende's palace, where they apprehend and execute both Williamson and Allende after a short chase. Reyes takes charge of the local government and plans to advance on the capital, while Marston leaves to return to his farm.
Much to his dismay, Bureau agents Edgar Ross and Archer Fordham refuse to let Marston return to his family until Dutch van der Linde , the leader of Marston's former gang, is killed. Discovering that Dutch has been building his own gang with sympathisers from the local Indian reservation, Marston joins Ross, Fordham and a group of soldiers in an attack on Dutch's hideout. Marston chases Dutch to a cliff overlooking the river and mountains. Dutch ultimately chooses to commit suicide, backing off a cliff to his death. Moments before he dies, he warns Marston that the government will just find another "monster" to justify their pay. Marston is released from his deal with the government and returns to his family at his farm. After some time Marston is forced to repel a surprise attack on his ranch from Ross and government agents. He manages to get his family to safety but stays behind to hold back the attackers. Despite a valiant last stand he is shot multiple times by Ross and his men. He is buried by his family on the hill overlooking the ranch.
Then moves three years ahead to 1914, where Marston's son Jack stands over the graves of his parents, John and Abigail. He leaves home to search for the now-retired Ross, and eventually finds the former agent hunting on a riverbank in Mexico. The two duel, with Jack emerging the victor. The fate of John Marston's companions are later summarized: Marshal Leigh Johnson retired from Armadillo to be replaced by Jonah, and then moved as far as possible from the town; Abraham Reyes, though promising to lead Mexico into an age of freedom, was consumed by power and became a tyrant; Bonnie MacFarlane eventually married; Irish shot himself dead in an outhouse when his gun accidentally discharged; Seth Briars eventually found the treasure he was looking for and became rich; and finally, Landon Ricketts passed away quietly in his sleep.

In a sense, regarding South Park’s history as a whole, it would be fair to say that Cartman is the villain of the piece and if the best thing to do with your enemies is to keep them close, then Stan, Kyle and Kenny have pretty much befriended everyone’s favourite chubby racist.
Whittling down the top 10 moments – note, moments not episodes – of Cartman’s very offensive past is a much more difficult task than you could imagine. This is the spoiled child who has assumed the guise of The Coon, dressed as Hitler, led a hate march against the town’s Jewish society and generally spread hatred for red haired people, hippies, dwarfs and anybody who is unlike his self. His brilliance is rightfully cemented as he constantly reaps what he sows, yet continues to go about his general mischief. So come on down to South Park and see one particularly naughty friend of mine.

The Sopranos is by far one of the best written shows of all time. I thinke especially that the dialog in The Sopranos feels real and is very entertaining, truly ingeniously. The acting is first class, by everyone the young as well as the old ones. The Sopranos changed television like no other show before it, it was a game changer. This was my favorite showes of all time Before True Detective, Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones. Despite this it still one of the best showes ever, with characters that feels real and with acting amazing and a great script. Those who tuned into the first episode of The Sopranos in 1999 found not a documentary about opera singers but a dark, offbeat drama about a New Jersey gangster with a fixation on the ducks who visit his swimming pool. As the first season wore on, viewers became hooked on creator David Chase's uncompromising vision of an old-school criminal organisation beset by all the stresses and tensions of the modern day. A fusion of sharp, unpredictable writing and powerhouse acting ensured this show classic status, spawning a videogame, spoofs by The Simpsons and the Clintons (!) and an Artie Bucco recipe book, so you can make like Tony and feast on 'gabagool' yourself

The Dark Knight Returns is set in a dystopian near-future version of Gotham City. The year is never specified, though it has been a full decade since the last reported sighting of Batman. Society has lost faith in the functioning of justice, and the current American President, named only Dickard, and whose appearance seems to be a reference to Ronald Reagan, constantly tries to keep the social order with optimistic discourses, while the Cold War is still ongoing. Virtually all superheroes, with the exception of Superman, have been forced by governmental authorities into retirement or otherwise driven away by a distrusting populace. Bruce Wayne has voluntarily retired from crime fighting following the death (under unspecified circumstances) of Jason Todd, the second Robin. In the absence of superheroes, criminals run amok, and a gang called the Mutants terrorize Gotham City.
The return of an old enemy prompts a now 55-year-old Wayne to don the Batman costume once again. Despite Wayne's funding his rehabilitation, including plastic surgery to restore his half-disfigured face, Harvey "Two-Face" Dent has seemingly returned to crime. Batman apprehends Dent, but the populace debates whether Batman's brand of vigilantism has any place in society. The media plays a large role in DKR, with the narrative broken up by news reports and "talking head" editorials debating events in the story as they unfold.
After Batman saves her from a Mutant attack, 13-year-old Carrie Kelly buys herself a knock-off Robin costume, and searches for Batman to aid him. She finds Batman at the city dump, where he is fighting the Mutants. The Mutants' leader defeats Batman in combat, but Kelly distracts him and pulls Batman into the tank-like Batmobile . Kelly attends to Batman’s wounds as the vehicle drives toward the Batcave . Once home, Batman takes Carrie on as the new Robin despite his butler Alfred's objections. With the help of retiring Commissioner James Gordon, the Mutants' leader is allowed to escape from jail, and Batman beats him in a mud fight in front of the assembled gang, which then disbands as a result of his humiliation. Some former Mutants create a new gang, the "Sons of the Batman," using extremely violent methods (up to and including murder) to "purge" Gotham of its criminal element in what they see as emulation of Batman's actions.
Meanwhile, the return of Batman has caused one of his oldest and deadliest foes, The Joker, to awaken from a years-long catatonic state at Arkham Asylum . The Joker convinces his psychiatrist, Dr. Bartholomew Wolper, that he is sane and regrets his misdeeds. Seeking to discredit Batman, whom he has crusaded against in the media, Wolper appears with the Joker on a late-night show. While the police, now led by the anti-vigilante Commissioner Ellen Yindel, attack Batman, the Joker murders everyone in the television studio (including Wolper) and escapes. Batman and Robin track the Joker to a county fair, where Batman defeats Joker in a violent showdown. Batman stops short of killing the Joker; however, the Joker finishes the job himself, twisting his own broken neck, with the intent that the police will charge Batman with murder. Batman escapes, but not before another confrontation with the Gotham police, and a citywide manhunt is now on for the Caped Crusader.
After Superman diverts a Russian nuclear warhead which then detonates in a desert, millions of tons of dust and debris fill the atmosphere, and Gotham descends into chaos during the resulting blackout. Batman and Robin train former Mutants and the brutal Sons of the Batman in non-lethal fighting to stop looting and ensure the flow of needed supplies. In the midst of nuclear winter conditions, Gotham becomes the safest city in America; the U.S. government, seeing this as a credibility-undermining embarrassment, orders Superman to take Batman down. Having been warned of the government's plans by Oliver Queen, the former Green Arrow, Batman confronts Superman. Symbolically, their duel takes place in Crime Alley, where Bruce Wayne's parents were murdered decades earlier. Batman defeats Superman in a well planned fight, but dies from a heart attack immediately afterward. After his funeral, it is revealed that his death was staged as an elaborate ruse; Clark Kent attends the funeral and gives Robin a knowing wink after hearing Bruce's heartbeat as he leaves the grave site, suggesting his silent approval of what will happen next. Alfred destroys the Batcave and Wayne Manor and suffers a fatal stroke. Some time afterward, Batman leads Robin, Green Arrow, and the rest of his followers into the caverns beyond the Batcave and prepares to continue his fight. His plan, which will take years of training and studying, is to build an army, and to bring sense to a world plagued by something "worse than thieves and murderers". He decides that this will be a good life — good enough.
