Better Call Saul (Breaking Bad)


 Share

Recommended Posts

I didn't realize that was the season finale. For a finale, it wasn't really good at all. The cliffhangers on this show are nowhere near as good as Breaking Bad. Actually, this show is nowhere near as good as Breaking Bad. The only episode I've really enjoyed was the one where Jimmy put on the Saul suits to get himself fired. That felt like Saul Goodman.

 

I actually care way more about Mike's story than I do Jimmy and his brother. I can't stand Chuck. That character is so annoying. When he hit his head, I was so hoping he'd just die.

I think the show has been fantastic.  It seems they have gone the same route as The Sopranos with the 2nd to last episode of the season being where the real action occurs and the finale ends up being a bit slower.  

 

Jimmy is such a lovable loser... I was screaming at the tv about him not saying anything to Chuck.  And then he did it.  Oye!

How is everyone enjoying the Season 3? They've brought back two iconic ‘Breaking Bad’ characters in the space of a few episodes.

Bob Odenkirk collapses on set of Breaking Bad spin-off

Quote

US actor Bob Odenkirk was taken to hospital on Tuesday after reportedly collapsing on the New Mexico set of his Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul.

According to multiple reports, the 58-year-old was shooting a scene when he was taken ill and was immediately attended to by crew members.

He was taken by ambulance to a hospital in the Los Angeles area where he is currently receiving treatment.

Odenkirk was recently seen in action thriller Nobody.

His other film credits include supporting roles in Little Women, Nebraska and The Post.

Better Call Saul is currently shooting its sixth and final season, which will be screened on the AMC cable network in 2022.

I hope he's ok as well.

 

When I read that news this morning, well quite frankly, it doesn't make sense. Taking an ambulance from ANYWHERE in New Mexico to the 'Los Angles area' is at least an 8 hour drive. Albuquerque (where both Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul was/is shot)  has excellent hospitals. ABQ to the LA area is even further at over 10 hours (just over 700 miles/1126 km) so I don't get it. Air Ambulance from ABQ would still be about 7 hours minimum.

Temps look mild but it can get above 100F/37C in NM. I also do not get traveling from NM to LA unless he was getting plastic surgery.

hope he's ok, been working his ass off getting fit and training for Nobody. Hope it was that he was just pushing himself a bit too hard and nothing else...

Hmm

Just hope he's okay. I think if he had a heart attack when he collapsed we would know about it by now.

      Sky Glass TV brings Sky without the need for a dish or box
      by Paul Hill



      Sky has announced the launch of Sky Glass, a new TV with Sky built into it. This means that customers will not need to buy a dish or a box to receive Sky channels. According to the firm, this makes it the only TV on the market with Sky built-in, making it a good choice if you want to reduce the clutter around your TV.

      The new Sky Glass will be available to purchase in the UK from October 18. It will cost from £13 a month over 48 months if you decide to split the payments or you can pay all in one go. The company doesn’t say how much the cost is if you buy outright but £13 multiplied by 48 is £624, so expect prices to start around there. Additionally, there are three models: Small 43”, Medium 55” and Large 65”.

      Adding to the cost, customers will also need to take out a £26 per month contract for Sky Ultimate TV, luckily, this contract renews every 31-days, giving you flexibility. Sky Ultimate TV will give you Netflix and Sky Entertainment, if you decide to pay £70 a month you’ll also get Sky Sports and BT Sport, and if you pay an extra tenner, you’ll get Sky Cinema added in too.

      Commenting on Sky Glass, Dana Strong, Group Chief Executive, Sky, said:

      The company said that Sky Glass will debut in its other European markets from 2022 but it didn’t provide pricing details for those markets. In terms of the specifications, anyone picking up Sky Glass will be getting a great TV. It features a 4K Ultra HD Quantum Dot screen (10-bit HDR) that supports HLG, HDR10, and Dolby Vision. The Sky Glass can also adjust the sound and display based on what you’re watching and Zonal Technology help produces darker darks and brighter brights.

      Sky Glass also supports many TV services that people have come to expect including Sky, BBC iPlayer, Netflix, Disney+, ITV Hub, All4, Spotify, Peloton, PlayWorks and more. You can even use your voice to search for programmes, turn on the TV, control the volume or switch connected devices. To find out more, head over to the Sky Glass website.

      UK broadcasters looking at unified on-demand service to battle Netflix
      by Paul Hill



      According to an article published yesterday in The Telegraph (via MSN), the British broadcasters are looking to band together to fight off rivals such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney+. Under the existing plans, which are not final, content from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, and Channel 5 would all be combined in one space so if you filtered content by Drama, you would see the dramas from each of the services side-by-side. You will also be able to view content by service too.

      The report claims that the broadcasters have been in talks since the beginning of the year but that the urgency of the issue has intensified recently as they wish to flesh out a deal before 2023’s smart TVs begin production. If they arrange a deal quick enough, the new streaming platform could get its own button on smart TV remotes.

      The introduction of a free, combined streaming service would be very good for people in the UK who currently have to wade through several separate services to find the content they watch. The idea for this service could have come from Britbox, a paid service operated by BBC, ITV, and Channel 4. It offers more content than what’s available on their free platforms but it costs £5.99 per month.

      The media regulator, Ofcom, has said that it ‘supports strong collaborative partnerships’ so this news will be welcome. It should also be welcome by the government which announced last week that it wants to ‘protect the creation of uniquely British TV’.

      Roku announces plans to expand into its second big European market
      by Paul Hill



      The TV platform, Roku, has announced (via Reuters) its intention to expand into Germany later this year, making it the second big European market that it’ll be present in. Unlike the UK expansion, where it started out as the software partner for Hisense, it will immediately launch its own hardware in the German market.

      Speaking to Reuters, the executive leading Roku’s international expansion, Arthur van Rest, said that there’s a ‘very big secular shift to streaming’ and that this trend is only being sped up by the pandemic that gripped the world last year and is still making itself known with rising case numbers in many countries.

      He went on to say:

      When Roku launches its hardware in Germany, it will come with apps and content from local partners including Seven.One Entertainment Group, RTL Deutschland, and Sky Deutschland. Of course, other services such as Netflix, Amazon’s Prime Video and Disney+ will be available for those who subscribe to those services.

      In the UK, Roku's streaming players come in four variations: Express, Express 4K, Streaming Stick+, and Streambar. Prices range from £29.99 to £129.99 which works out to around €35 and €150 respectively – these are the prices we could see when Roku arrives in Germany later this year.

      LG announces launch of LG QNED Mini LED premium TVs
      by Paul Hill



      LG has announced that it will be rolling out its newest TVs in July that use Quantum Dot NanoCell colour and Mini LED backlight technologies to deliver a premium experience. The new 2021 LCD TVs will deliver deeper blacks, more accurate colour reproduction, and greater contrast and brightness.

      The line-up of LG QNED Mini LED TVs consists of the 8K QNED99 and QNED95 series along with the 4K QNED90 series with screen sizes ranging from 65 inches to 86 inches. Aside from the aforementioned improvements in picture quality, these TVs are certified by the product testing agency Intertek to provide 100 percent colour volume and colour consistency. They also eliminate any colour distortion across wide viewing angles so they should be great to watch no matter where you’re sitting in a room.

      Commenting on the new TVs, Park Hyoung-sei, president of the LG Home Entertainment Company, said:

      LG said that the new displays will be available in North America initially before coming to additional regions around the world in the following weeks. LG didn’t state the prices for the TVs but as they’re premium, expect them to be expensive.

      TrendForce says focus will be on OLED and large TVs in 2021
      by Paul Hill



      The analyst firm TrendForce has said that it expects to see TV manufacturers focus on large and OLED TVs. It noted that demand for 55-inch+ TVs have seen increased among the public so manufacturers will respond to this. On the OLED front, the analyst said that LCD panels have seen a big price hike making OLED more attractive to both brands and consumers.

      In terms of figures, TrendForce believes that 55-inch TVs will account for 20% of the total TV shipments this year and that 60-inch TVs will represent 17.7% of shipments. Compared to the year before, demand for 55-inch TV sets will stay the same but 60-inch TVs will see a 3.3% growth compared to last year. This growth rate is notable because in previous years growth didn’t go higher than 1-2%.

      On the OLED front, TrendForce noted that 55-inch UHD OLED panels were four times the price of the equivalent LCD products at the start of 2020, by the end of the year the difference was 2.9 times and in the first quarter of this year, UHD OLED was only 2.2 times more expensive than the LCD equivalent – this is all down to LCD price hikes. As a result, OLED TV shipments are expected to reach 6.76 million units which is a year-over-year increase of 72%.

      It’s expected that global TV shipments as a whole this year will reach 223 million units which represents a growth of 3.1% year-over-year. TrendForce said that two drivers of the growth will be the UEFA Euro 2020 and Tokyo Olympics which were both delayed from last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
