‘Breaking Bad’ Creator Vince Gilligan Finally Explains Why Lydia Took Her Tea Like That
Lydia Rodarte-Quayle (Laura Fraser) from “Breaking Bad” took her Chamomile tea with soy milk and a ton of Stevia. Ew. Our friends at HuffPo finally found out why the key character drank what sounds like the nastiest hot beverage in modern TV history — an unanswered question that has hung around well into the “Better Call Saul” run. To get to the bottom of Lydia’s gross concoction — something no normal tea drinker could ever actually do — one reporter went straight to the source. “Oh, I actually put milk in chamomile tea,” series creator Vince Gilligan told HuffPo. “A lot of...

Becky Lea Jul 2, 2017

In episode four, ITV's The Loch takes a detour from the main event when it should probably start answering some of its many questions...

This review contains spoilers.

An old friend from Leighton’s past shows up in Lochnafoy and wants to relive their violent youth. Annie’s forced to investigate Leighton further when his alibi for Niall Swift’s murder proves to be a bit dodgy and Alan is dragged into the situation. Craig Petrie is invited back for further questioning when it is revealed that it is his handwriting on the newspaper, but manages to rile up Blake a little too much. A hair is found on the inside of the van that Jonjo’s body showed up in and the van itself appears with its driver on old CCTV footage.

Parts of ITV's The Loch might be a cliche, but Siobhan Finneran and Laura Fraser have chemistry that makes it work...

This review contains spoilers.

The second episode of The Loch gets going by throwing out more questions for our motley crew of investigators to answer.

Rebecca Lea Jun 11, 2017

Spoilers! We take a look at ITV's new murder mystery. The Loch...

This review contains spoilers. The picturesque surroundings of Loch Ness provide the location for The Loch, the new murder mystery from ITV. Laura Fraser stars as local police officer Annie Redford who finds herself dealing with her first murder case after a local music teacher is found dead at the foot of Carn Mohr mountain with ligature wounds on his wrists and a rather large head injury.

26 new UK TV shows to look out for

Louisa Mellor Jun 1, 2017

Some exciting new UK drama and comedy commissions are making their way to TV over the next year or so…

We know, we know. You still have two episodes of Fargo season two before you can think about starting season three. You’ve already fallen behind on American Gods. Your planner memory is chock-a-block with Big Little Lies and that Oj Simpson thing and some Spanish prison series your workmate bullied you into recording. You’re struggling to make time for Twin Peaks. New Game Of Thrones is just around the corner. And guess what, Netflix UK have just added a whole new season of It’s Always Sunny, those sods. You need a list of new TV show recommendations like you need a hole in the head.

‘Better Call Saul’ Review: Watch Out, World, Because Saul Goodman is Coming
Last Week’S Review: ‘Better Call Saul’ Review: Bob Odenkirk and Michael McKean Spar in an Ultimate Clash of the Brothers

Case Summary

Crime in Albuquerque might be on the rise even as Jimmy McGill receives his sentence from the bar association — a year away from the law, per his suspension. Once he touches base with his former clients, the big question is “What’s next?” And he may have gotten the answer thanks to his old joke of a pseudonym, and the prepaid commercial time he needs to unload.

Meanwhile, we get even more insight into the criminal underworld that is the cartel drug trade — first, witnessing how the Salamanca gang conducts business at this stage in its operation, then observing how Gus Fring uses Los Pollos Hermanos trucks to move product across the border. (Spoiler alert: One operation is far more sophisticated than the other.) And Gus discovers

‘Better Call Saul’: Another ‘Breaking Bad’ Favorite Returns (Spoilers)

‘Better Call Saul’: Another ‘Breaking Bad’ Favorite Returns (Spoilers)
Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watched episode 6 of the third season of “Better Call Saul,” titled “Off Brand.”

She’s back! This third season of “Better Call Saul” has started to feel like a “Breaking Bad” reunion, as familiar faces have popped up from the original series that launched it all (including Saul Goodman, who makes his highly anticipated debut). So it was only a matter of time before a certain Stevia-loving sociopath made a comeback as well. She only got a few lines in her exchange with Giancarlo Esposito’s Gus Fring, but her return was noteworthy for what it may signify. “Well?” she asks him, as he inspects a large industrial property that’s for sale (for meth making, perhaps?). “It could work,” he replies. “Ok then,” she says. Hopefully we haven’t seen the last of the unforgettable Lydia Rodarte-Quayle.

‘Breaking Bad’ The Movie: How Condensing the Show Robs You of What You Really Want — Walt and Jesse, Together
Breaking Bad” received (some) criticism during its beloved five seasons on television, but no one ever complained that the AMC drama created by Vince Gilligan was too short.

Thus, when some “Breaking” fans released their two-hour hour long fan edit of the series, condensing the story of a high school chemistry professor who turns to a life of crime to a feature length experience, the overwhelming reaction was “Why???” (A question seemingly echoed by AMC, which seems to have issued a takedown notice.)

Blu-ray Review – I Am Not a Serial Killer (2016)

I Am Not a Serial Killer, 2016.

Directed by Billy O’Brien.

Starring Christopher Lloyd, Laura Fraser, Max Records, Karl Geary, Matt Roy, and Molly Gearen.

Synopsis:

A sociopathic teenager discovers that his elderly neighbour may have something to do with a spate of murders.

I Am Not a Serial Killer begins in a not-too-dissimilar way to Tom Holland’s Fright Night in that a small town is being plagued by brutal killings and a teenage boy with a keen interest in such things discovers that one of his neighbours may be responsible. However, the filmmakers don’t make things easy when it comes to defining who is ‘good’ and who is ‘bad’ and the serial killer of the title could refer to either one of the two main characters.

The boy in question is John Wayne Cleaver (the brilliantly named Max Records from Where the Wild Things Are) and his

‘The Missing’ Star David Morrissey on Playing a Father Dealing With a Parent’s Worst Nightmare

‘The Missing’ Star David Morrissey on Playing a Father Dealing With a Parent’s Worst Nightmare
[This post contains plot details for the first episode of “The Missing” Season 2.]

Starz’s “The Missing” returned for Season 2 with another story about kidnapping — except that in the first few minutes, Alice Webster (Abigail Hardingham), lost for 11 years, stumbles back into the small German town she disappeared from. That is the beginning of a time-shifting story about how resolution does not mitigate loss — and how long-buried traumas can unearth in surprising and terrifying ways.

In quite a genre shift from his role as the Governor in “The Walking Dead,” David Morrissey plays Sam Webster, a captain in the British army whose turn of duty at a German base becomes an exile of bereavement when his daughter Alice goes missing. In the intervening years, Sam and his wife Gemma (Keeley Hawes) have made the town their home, building new lives around their loss. When Alice returns, the bereaved couple have to start over again. Sam in particular is altered — there are burn scars all over one side of his body
