Yahoo Entertainment read through the entire SDCC 2018 schedule for you and picked the 50 film and TV panels that have us most excited. Take a peek at our list, and we'll see you in line in San Diego.
The cast and crew look back on creating Walt and Jesse, how viewers were hooked, and why we almost didn't see those tighty-whities.
On Sunday’s season premiere of "Family Guy," Peter Griffin was fed up with the fact that his show never wins any Emmys. So they made a few changes, starting with replacing Peter’s wife, Lois, with Sofia Vergara — both in voice and likeness. From there, the show went on to parody or reference more than 20 iconic past and present TV shows.
In the new Netflix drama Ozark, Jason Bateman plays a Chicago financial advisor who gets involved with money laundering for a brutal drug cartel boss, played by Esai Morales. To appease that boss, Bateman’s Marty Byrde proposes a screwy idea: He and his family (headed up by Laura Linney as his wife) will move to the Missouri Ozarks and set up a new laundering operation far from the eyes of the law.
'Better Call Saul' EPs Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould on that devastating season finale, and why you shouldn't hold out hope for Chuck.
In Wakefield, Bryan Cranston plays a successful New York lawyer, who, upon returning to his perfect suburban home one night, decides to take a nap in the attic above his garage. Days turn then into weeks, and weeks into month, as Howard Wakefield scavengers food from the trash, grows out a scruffy beard, and spies on his family from a rear window — all the while dissecting the trivialities of his seemingly idyllic (but clearly not idyllic) life. Cranston doesn’t want you to think about Walt while watching Wakefield, and the characters couldn’t be more different.
In celebration of "Better Call Saul" Season 3, and, you know, actual Easter, here are our 22 favorite "Breaking Bad" Easter eggs, from Season 1 through the Season 3 premiere episode, “Mabel.”
The season premiere is an entertaining setup for next week’s reintroduction of a character loved by “Breaking Bad” fans and feared by that show’s characters.
Bryan Cranston is finally making his “electric dreams” come true! The Breaking Bad star inked a deal with Amazon to create an anthology series based on the writings of Philip K. Dick. Electric Dreams will team Ronald D. Moore, showrunner of Outlander and Battlestar Galactica, with Justified EP Michael Dinner and Cranston to write and produce ten episodes all based on different short stories by Dick.
We may have finally gotten to the bottom of why Netflix is so secretive with their viewership numbers … everyone is cheating on everyone else! In a new study released by the streaming giant just in time for Valentine’s Day, 46 percent of couples admit to Netflix cheating — watching a series ahead of your significant other.
Melissa McCarthy's perfect impression of White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the latest "Saturday Night Live" had us thinking back to other great surprise cameos on the show.
Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul joined Ellen on Tuesday, and the host asked him a question that’s been on the minds of fans of the hit AMC show: Will he be making an appearance on the spinoff prequel to Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul? If Paul were to reprise his role as Jesse Pinkman, he wouldn’t be playing the same meth-cooking partner to Walter White that we all got to know and love. Better Call Saul takes place several years before the start of Breaking Bad, so Paul would likely be playing a high schooler with a drug problem.
Throughout the first two seasons of Better Call Saul, there’ve been hints aplenty about Jimmy McGill’s impending transformation into Saul Goodman, from Jimmy’s strip mall law office to his love of brightly colored suits and ties. But with the AMC drama’s third season currently in production, and Season 2 hitting Blu-ray and DVD this week, Saul has yet to appear.
On Sunday’s 60 Minutes, Bryan Cranston was interviewed on the set of his new show, Sneaky Pete, and explained his intentions in choosing the underwear for two very different characters he played.
In The Infiltrator, Bryan Cranston stars as U.S. Customs Agent Bob Mazur, who helped take on Pablo Escobar and his drug cartel by assuming a secret identity.
Better Call Saul Finale: Jimmy and Mike Get Fooled One of the great pleasures of Better Call Saul throughout its second season, which concluded on Monday night on AMC, was to watch people do their work. Specifically, watching Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), his brother, Chuck (Michael McKean), and his colleague and lover, Kim (Rhea Seehorn), cull through paper-work to prepare various cases, make pitches to prospective clients, and navigate the dangerous territory of inter-office politics. While we may have expected the scene set in a hospital room to reveal Chuck in the bed—as had, after all, suffered a nasty clunk on the head when he collapsed in the copy-shop at the end of last week’s episode—the producers gave us a mild surprise by making the opening with a flashback, to Chuck and Jimmy sitting at the bedside of their dying mother.
When Downton Abbey premiered in the United States in January 2011, it was just another entry in PBS’ Masterpiece schedule. It arrived in America at a time when Masterpiece Theatre was going through an identity crisis, trying to boost its ratings by splitting into subdivisions such as Masterpiece Mystery and Masterpiece Contemporary—the latter as foolish a re-branding as Coca-Cola’s New Coke. Little did PBS know that it wasn’t re-branding it needed at all: what was necessary for a resurgence was something buried deep in the very roots of the network: a lively soap opera whose mix of upstairs posh and downstairs cook-and-wash would hit the spot for American Anglophiles in a way no other PBS entry had done since Upstairs Downstairs, the ur-Downton from the mid-1970s whose co-creator and co-star, Jean Marsh, once accused Downton of ripping off.
In “Tattoo,” Dan Bakkedahl’s Tim gets inked to demonstrate his Valentine’s Day love for wife Heather (Betsy Brandt), but something goes wrong in the spelling of the message. In “Guitar,” teen Tyler (Niall Cunningham) buys an expensive guitar to serenade his girlfriend Clementine (Hunter King), with a cameo by Josh Groban.
There was an unprecedented variety of excellent dramas this year… as well as an unprecedented amount of them. But with the range of tone, genre, casting, styles of writing and direction — this was truly a ripe year for drama, spreading across network, basic and premium cable, and streaming as well. Here are my picks for the best of them.
Life In Pieces, the new CBS sitcom that follows its solid premiere last Monday with an even funnier episode tonight, is more difficult to summarize than it is to watch, trust me. The tale of a large extended family, the show tells four separate stories each week, and then sort of ties them together at the end, but not too neatly — which is actually a good thing, because the endings don’t feel contrived. The show separates into couples. The biggest star names are James Brolin and Dianne Wiest as John and Joan Short — senior citizens fumbling through advancing age, short-term memory loss, and an inability to remember their house’s WiFi password, which Brolin refers to as “the Wiffy.”
