If you've ever wanted to see Daenerys wearing one of those colorful Rastafarian hats, this is surely the video for you, but don't expect her to be touring Jamaica anytime soon with her dragons in tow...Read More
It's virtually impossible for any TV series to wrap up every single little loose end in a series finale. The last episode of AMC's Breaking Bad was certainly beloved by fans and critics alike, ending their five-season run with a swan song that is still talked about to this day, after originally airing in September 2013. There was one minor character whose fate was left hanging in the balance, Huell (Lavell Crawford), Saul Goodman's (Bob Odenkirk) associate.
Unlike Jesse (Aaron Paul) and Saul, who were essentially forced to go on the run, Huell got off scott-free. It's worth noting that Funny Or Die came up with their own theory, that Huell never made it out of that safe house, and is essentially living in a zany family sitcom entitled Huell's Rules. Check out the video below, and let us know what you think happened to Huell on Breaking Bad.Read More
In the show, there were 14 Los Pollos Hermanos locations throughout New Mexico and Nevada. Of course, it isn't known who this mystery businessman is, or where he plans on creating this actual Los Pollos Hermanos restaurant. Would you eat at Los Pollos Hermanos if a restaurant was built in your city? Let us know what you think below.Read More
Before Better Call Saul hit the small screen to become a breakout hit, with some claiming it better than its predecessor Breaking Bad, it was unclear how many actors and characters from the original series would actually be appearing. We knew fairly early on that Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul would not be reprising their iconic roles as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman in Season 1. Now, we have confirmation that Dean Norris, who played beloved DEA Agent and Walter's brother-in-law Hank Schrader, won't be back either, at least not in the remaining 5 episodes still to air on AMC.
You can watch the entire exclusive interview segment with Dean Norris below. This past Monday, AMC debuted the fifth episode of Better Call Saul Season 1 titled Alpine Shepard Boy, which marks the midway point. As of now, no other main Breaking Bad characters have popped up on the show aside from stars Bob Odenkirk, who plays the lead, and Jonathan Banks, who plays Mike Ehrmantraut. There are still five more episodes to go in this 10 episode run, so that may change. And the series has already been picked up for Season 2. Its quite possible that DEA Agent Schrader will live to ride another day, but we'll have to wait until 2016 to see that happen.Read More
Fans disappointed to hear that Bryan Cranston's Walter White and Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman aren't going to show up in Better Call Saul Season 1 will be happy to see that both characters are included in a new tie-in crossover comic book that is currently available on AMC's official website. This new story arrives before Better Call Saul debuts this Sunday, February 8 with Uno.
The action seen in the comic, titled Client Development, takes place during the Breaking Bad Season 2 episode 4 Days Out, where it is continued. Of course, fans already know where the story is headed. Written by Jenn Carol and Gordon Smith and drawn by Steve Ellis, the comic introduces Walter White to Saul, as Mike sets out to get intel on the high school chemistry teacher.Read More
