‘Better Call Saul’: Is This the Season Jimmy Goes “Saul” in? We ask Bob Odenkirk!

April 3, 2017 Lori Acken 0

When Better Call Saul debuted more than a year after its iconic predecessor Breaking Bad ended, fans were itchy to see prankster Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) morph into Bad’s shameless shyster Saul Goodman — pronto. Then something unexpected happened. We all fell for Jimmy — loving, loyal, funny, fumbling Jimmy — and his kooky (and sometimes genius) resourcefulness and joie de vivre. And yet, we knew the honeymoon couldn’t last. Both shows’ producers, Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, confirmed that this is, indeed, the season that Jimmy begins to break Goodman, as an angrier-than-ever Chuck (Michael McKean) seeks revenge for […]

‘The Son’: Pierce Brosnan Saddles Up for AMC’s Sweeping Drama

March 28, 2017 Lori Acken 0

Pierce Brosnan sits across from me at a bistro table in the Southern California sunshine. He wears an impeccably tailored, steel gray suit that complements his salt-and-pepper hair. His blue eyes gleam. That voice — Brosnan doesn’t just answer questions, he orates. And all I (and most likely all the other diners stealing glances at the actor) can think is Bond. James Bond. That may soon change to McCullough. Eli McCullough. Brosnan plays the wily Texas rancher and oilman in AMC’s new period drama The Son — his first starring role in series television since Remington Steele made the debonair […]

Into The Badlands: What’s Up With Your Favorites As AMC’s Martial Arts Spectacle Returns

March 5, 2017 Lori Acken 0

Expect a six-month time jump when AMC’s eye-popping martial arts fantasy Into the Badlands debuts its second season this month. “We like the idea of letting people settle into their new places and allowing the world to recover a little bit from the events of the end of Season 1,” explains Alfred Gough, who created the show with his longtime producing partner Miles Millar. “We see our characters scattered across the Badlands and into other areas as well and we also introduce new characters. For us, this season was all about expanding the world.” Gough and Millar reveal where you’ll […]

Humans on AMC: We Have 5 Questions For Carrie-Anne Moss!

February 10, 2017 Lori Acken 0

AMC’s spine-tingling artificial intelligence drama Humans returns for Season 2 on Feb. 13 with Niska (Emily Berrington), Mia (Gemma Chan) and the rest of their synth family scattered, the Hawkins family fractured, and new additions to the cast. Among them — The Matrix star Carrie-Anne Moss as Dr. Athena Morrow. Morrow, a brilliant A.I. scientist, sees opportunity to advance her own ideals in an employment offer from Elon Musk-type tech renegade Milo Khoury, played by fellow new addition Marshall Allman (Nashville’s Sam Palladio signs on, too).“She lives and breathes her work,” Moss tells Channel Guide of her intense character. “She isn’t […]

The Walking Dead: Will Carol Join The Fight? We Ask Melissa McBride!

February 1, 2017 Lori Acken 1

Take heart, Carol fans! We have a promise that we’ll see much more of our favorite little born-again pacifist in the cottage by The Kingdom, straight from Melissa McBride, who plays her. When The Walking Dead Season 7 returns Feb. 12, the rest of the Grimes Gang has reunited to gather ranks for the war on Negan — and while McBride couldn’t tell us if she joins in, she had much to say about the determining factors. Carol’s need for solitude is a hotly debated topic. What’s your take? Melissa McBride: When I think of where she’s come from, with a […]

Recap: The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 7: We’ve got some stuff to iron out here …

December 4, 2016 Lori Acken 0

I didn’t recap last week’s episode of The Walking Dead. In part because of the Thanksgiving holiday and a whole lotta people in my house. Mostly, though, because it felt so far removed from a TWD episode — even though they’re regularly all over the map now, literally and figuratively — that I didn’t have much to say about it. Those sandy walkers were ultra cool, but about all that “Superglib Tara in Murderous Lady Land” did for me was reveal that, at least in one village, Negan wiped out every soul who physically had a set of balls. Figuratively […]

The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 5 Recap: Simon says

November 20, 2016 Lori Acken 0

Oh Gregory, you suit-wearing, Marcia Maggie-irking, Jesus-freaked disaster of a Hilltop leader, you. Thus is the crux of The Walking Dead Season 7 episode 5 — “Go Getters.” It also marks the return of my favorite not-Negan Savior, Billy Bob Nicholson. OK, his name is actually Simon — played by Canadian actor Steven Ogg (Better Call Saul‘s Sobchak) — but if Billy Bob Thornton and Jack Nicholson had a love child, he would look just like that and you cannot argue it. Also, anyone else jonesing to meet the Sanctuary’s dentist? Because, man, those people have some teeth. But I […]

The Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 4 recap: Who’s in charge here?

November 13, 2016 Lori Acken 0

About a year back, I had nice, long talk with The Walking Dead multi-hyphenate Greg Nicotero about what doom likely loomed as Season 7, Negan and the Saviors neared. He said this about Negan and the guy who played him: “I gotta say, we cast the best person for the role. Negan is charismatic and he’s calculating and he’s dark. I’m a fan of Jeffrey’s work, and ironically when we were starting casting, I was watching The Good Wife, and I was like, ‘Damn, that guy is so fucking charming, and his smile just completely disarms you. What an amazing attribute for […]

Walking Dead Season 7 Episode 3 Recap: Who Are You … Really?

November 6, 2016 Lori Acken 0

Tonight was the answer to your prayers, Daryl-starved The Walking Dead fans. Well … sort of. Following an opening montage of Dwight watching Who’s The Boss reruns, playing ping-pong for shots, strong-arming others into the makings of the egg version of a Big Mac, and observing zombie-management training, we learned what became of Mr. Dixon after Negan and Co. chucked him the back of a truck and hauled him away in the season premiere. In a nutshell, our boy has entered the “how to become a Neganite in one-to-three horrendous steps” program and he’s super-stuck on the first level. That entails being stripped […]
