The Trump era has made the real world more absurd than anything ever concocted by the gang at Paddy’s Pub—but 14 seasons in, the cast and creators are rolling with it.
“The Simpsons” did it. So did “Sex and the City” — twice. And “Breaking Bad” and “The Sopranos” are about to. Though we may be living in a golden age of television, the small screen isn’t a large enough canvas for some showrunners.
Like meth and murder, one thing we have come to expect from any Vince Gilligan project in the Breaking Bad universe is Easter eggs. Lots and lots of Easter eggs. And 'El Camino' — Gilligan's desperately anticipated follow-up to "Felina," Breaking Bad's iconic series finale — does not disappoint as far as wistful remembrances of the original series are concerned.
Drawing lines between heroes and villains in The Wire is no easy task, and neither is determining which of its 60 episodes are the best — or “worst” — of the bunch. The show just doesn’t work that way. With that said, here’s our highly subjective ranking of every episode of The Wire. Don’t agree? Sheeeeeeeee-it.
To call Keith David one of the hardest working actors in Hollywood is hardly hyperbole. In 1979, the year he graduated from Julliard, David landed his first onscreen role. One year later, he began touring with John Houseman’s The Acting Company, which put on productions of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Waiting for Godot. He hasn’t looked back since.
When BBC revealed, back in July 2017 that Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi would be handing over the TARDIS to Jodie Whittaker, network executives expected some backlash.
The Nightman Cometh: An Oral History of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s Musical Episode–Turned–Live Show Phenomenon
Ten years ago, “The Gang” from Paddy’s Pub sang about troll tolls and boys’ holes—and established the series as one of TV’s most daring comedies.
Dust off your dinner jackets and dig your finest satin gloves out of storage: 'Downton Abbey' is back. More than three years after the acclaimed Masterpiece series bid its millions of viewers a very proper farewell, the Crawley family—and the dutiful servants who (mostly) happily attend to their very particular needs—is preparing for a whole new round of upstairs-downstairs antics.
A conversation with Rory Kinnear, who can currently be seen in 'Years And Years,' HBO’s new family drama-cum-dystopian satire from longtime 'Doctor Who' head honcho Russell T. Davies, which imagines what the next 15 years might look like if the whims of populist politicians remain unchecked. (Spoiler alert: It’s not good.)
Helen Sloan isn’t as famous a name to 'Game of Thrones' fans as Emilia Clarke or Kit Harington, but the photographer has played as integral a role in the HBO epic as any of its actors.
Whether you wore your hair high and hairsprayed or preferred to pop the collar on your pink Izod polo shirt, no one who grew up watching MTV in the 1980s could escape the sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll-fueled antics of Mötley Crüe. Not even if you wanted to. This includes Jackass co-creator Jeff Tremaine, who has felt a certain kinship with the band ever since he read their 2001 memoir, The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band.
Over the span of 11 years and almost twice as many movies, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has overtaken Star Wars—the once-grand behemoth of all film franchises—to become the highest-grossing movie series of all-time.
Few actors do anguish as well as Ben Whishaw. Though he’s best known as James Bond’s gadget-loving sidekick Q, the BAFTA-winning Brit has wowed audiences for well over a decade by playing a string of tormented characters on stage and screen: Hamlet, John Keats, Herman Melville, Keith Richards, Bob Dylan, Richard II, and … Paddington Bear.
A bizarre theory that didn't make it into Netflix's new-again docuseries turns the whole thing into a real 'hoo-dunnit.'
It's been 10 years since 'Breaking Bad' came barreling onto our TV screens, and we're still not over it. And probably won't be for a long time. Because while the series is regularly mentioned in the same breath as other fanatically loved "prestige" dramas like The Sopranos and Mad Men, those series had their off moments and seasons, but Breaking Bad never did.
