In a conversation with The Hollywood Reporter chief TV critic Tim Goodman, Bob Odenkirk revealed a lot of fun things about the highly anticipated Breaking Bad spin-off, Better Call Saul.

Drive after drinking three Long Island Iced Teas? Steal a George Foreman Grill from a Walmart? Have kids in your “creepy van?” Now there’s a song telling you to do what Breaking Bad fans already know you should: call Saul Goodman.
In anticipation of Saul’s Breaking Bad prequel series, Better Call Saul, AMC released a “Better Call Saul” music video for the song performed by country musician Junior Brown. The video features a bit of footage from the show, though it mostly focuses on Brown, who is surrounded by pretty women showing off TVs with Saul on their screens. READ FULL STORY

With the final four episodes of Breaking Bad looming last fall, Vince Gilligan hinted, “A great many chickens will come home to roost for Walt.” And, sure enough, in “Ozymandias,” the third-to-last episode of AMC’s harrowing, Emmy-winning meth drama, many of said chickens knocked down the front door of his house and made themselves comfortable in his living room.
During that hour of punishing and mesmerizing television, Walt (Bryan Cranston) would lose much of his blood money and most of his family (except for his baby daughter, whom he kidnapped in a moment of desperation), the latter being the reason that he supposedly turned to a life of meth kingpinnery in the first place.

JEFF JENSEN: Melissa, for all the self-serving yet correct talk about how expansive and diverse and ambitious television has become over the past few years, the Emmys made TV seem rather small last night.
Maybe I lost my sense of humor over the summer (too much Rectify and Ferguson, I guess), but Seth Meyers didn’t work for me. The Late Night comedian—at his best when seated behind a desk, gleefully reading his sharp, tart jokes and engaging guests with smart chat—kept the show flowing and didn’t fumble. He was an effective game manager, but nothing more. And he simply lacks the presence and dynamism that an event like this requires.
Meyers invoked his former Saturday Night Live pals Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and their ace work hosting the Golden Globes, but inviting the comparison only hurt him. (Could they host the Emmys next year? Check that: Can they host everything, like, from now on?) His funniest bit was the “Billy On The Street” video he did with Billy Eichner—and there, Eichner was dragging him along like luggage. (Emmy and NBC would have been better served by Jimmy Fallon, whose strengths—playful and inventive interaction with celebs; genuinely sincere gushing—seem ideally suited to emceeing a kudosfest.)

Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bryan Cranston were big winners at the Emmys—and not just because they both took home awards.
The Veep and Breaking Bad stars were the talk of the night after smooching on live television as Louis-Dreyfus made her way to the stage after winning for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. “It was pretty good,” the actress said backstage of the kiss. “He went for it, man. I appreciate that. He goes for it in everything he does.”
On Saturday, the 30th annual TCA Awards named Breaking Bad program of the year for the second year in a row. However, Bad did not face off against True Detective—its biggest rival in the upcoming Emmy race—which instead took home the award for outstanding miniseries. Matthew McConaughey was also honored for his work in True Detective.
Netflix hit Orange is the New Black won for best new program, and the Emmy-snubbed The Good Wife was named top drama.
In the comedy category, Veep tied with Louie for best comedy, while Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus was also honored.
Other winners included Saturday Night Live, which snagged the Television Critics Association’s Heritage Award, Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey, which won for news and information, and RuPaul’s Drag Race, which was honored in reality programming.
Finally, ABC Family’s The Fosters won for youth programming, and James Burrows took home the Career Achievement Award.
All in all, HBO came out on top with the most awards of any network.
We may not have seen the last of Walter White.
Peter Gould, executive producer of AMC’s Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul, told the New York Daily News that the spinoff will jump between decades and may even include scenes that take place during the Breaking Bad timeline. This means that there’s a chance Bryan Cranston will reprise his three-time Emmy-winning role as school teacher-turned-meth kingpin Walter White. READ FULL STORY
