Better Call Saul Teaser Trailer.

It may only be a brief and disappointing ten seconds in length but this AMC teaser trailer for the Breaking Bad spin-off series Better Call Saul gives fans a glimpse of what to expect.

As we already know Better Call Saul will focus on Albuquerque’s finest criminal lawyer Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk, and will be set before, during and after the events involving Walter White in Breaking Bad. From the looks of Saul’s hair the clip above may be from the ‘before’ stage of the series.

Homeland Season 3 Mini-Documentary Re-Cap.

The award winning drama series Homeland embarks on it’s third season next month and to bring all it’s fans back up to speed with the story so far, the creative minds behind the series have made this nine minute long fictional mini-documentary which serves as an excellent re-cap.

Without revealing any spoilers it picks up right at the end of season two.

Kenny F**king Powers Is Back!

When the third series of Eastbound & Down ended earlier this year it was assumed the hit show starring Danny Mcbride had finished for good. But, keeping in mind that golden rule about assuming nothing when it comes to the world of TV, HBO officially announced today that the series will now return for a surprise fourth season for only eight episodes, which will be broadcast next year.

Mcbride and show co-creator Jody Hill have always maintained that they had no intention of ‘stringing‘ the series out and just last year Hill suggested that a trilogy of seasons seemed like the most natural way to conclude the story of Kenny Powers. Without going into any spoilers the end of series three pretty much neatly wrapped things up for the chaotic baseball pitcher, but when you’ve got a hit series on your hands, high ratings, a solid fanbase and the possibility of making even more money, why say no.

 

 

 

The Creator Of The Shield Needs Real Men.

No it’s not what you think.

Shawn Ryan, the writer and creator of possibly the second greatest police/crime drama series ever made for television was asked by website C21 Media if he had a million dollars what would he invest in.

His answer was to fund a national search for real men to teach them how to act and mold them into powerful TV stars. In his own words:

‘It’s really hard to find some solid male TV stars these days.’

Avast! Teaser Trailer For TV Series Luck.

If we were betting men we’d probably slap down all the doubloons we own on HBO’s up and coming series Luck being a sure fire ratings hit.

Of course nobody has seen Luck yet so the jury is still out, but taking into account that it’s directed and produced by Michael Mann, (Heat, Miami Vice), created By David Milch, (Deadwood), and stars Dustin Hoffman, Nick Nolte, Dennis Farina, Michael Gambon and Richard Kind it’s safe to say there’s very little that could go wrong with this series.

Hoffman stars as Chester ‘Ace’ Bernstein, who comes out of prison, after serving as a long time tough guy to various gambling rackets, to enact a possible heist with his former muscle Gus Economou (Farina). Nick Nolte plays a disillusioned racing trainer desperately searching for a second chance.

Luck will be shown in the UK sometime in 2012.
