Aaron Paul on his essentials: sneakers, mezcal and Gucci

Sure, Aaron Paul may have three Emmys (for playing meth-cooking heartthrob Jesse Pinkman on “Breaking Bad”), several more noms (including one for executive-producing cult-favorite animated series “BoJack Horseman”) and a juicy new role as the dark-and-stormy Caleb on HBO’s “Westworld.” But the 40-year-old hasn’t become another jaded star. The son of a Baptist minister, Paul...

‘Better Call Saul’ Goes South of the Border With “Dedicado a Max”

This week on Better Call Saul: Mike does some carpentry! Kim and Jimmy hatch a plan! No Nacho! Meet Mr. X! Kim and Jimmy  There’s a lot I love about Better Call Saul, but at the top of the list is Kim Wexler. I firmly believe she’s one of the most fascinating characters on TV right now. Part of that comes from how complex the character is written. And part of it comes from Rhea Seehorn‘s unparalleled performance. Seehorn is one of those actors who is very good at listening, and while you...

‘The Witcher’ Showrunner Has Seven Seasons Planned

In the spirit of being overprepared (or perhaps tempting fate), The Witcher showrunner Lauren Hissrich has revealed she has seven seasons mapped out for the Netflix series.

How ‘BoJack Horseman’ Transformed From a Talking Animal Comedy Into the Best and Most Devastating Show on Netflix

BoJack Horseman is a comedy built on incongruity. It’s an inexplicable mashup of genres and styles that absolutely should not work. As the show’s final season begins its portioned-out arrival, it’s worth celebrating how BoJack Horseman gradually became not just the best show on Netflix, but arguably one of the most incisive, emotionally raw, and darkly funny shows of the new century. Here’s a show that could’ve died on the vine in its first season, yet has become one of the very best in al...

Enlarge / Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) must elude capture and get out of town in El Camino. (credit: Netflix) The series finale of Breaking Bad has been touted as one of the best series finales of all time by critics, as former high school chemistry teacher-turned-meth manufacturer Walter White faced the inevitable reckoning for his many crimes and misdeeds.

‘El Camino’ Had Two Alternate Endings and the Original Cut Ran Three Hours

When Aaron Paul‘s long-suffering Jesse Pinkman crashed a stolen El Camino through the fences of the white supremacist compound where he had been kept enslaved in the explosive Breaking Bad finale in 2013, his fate was left on an ecstatic but ambiguous note. Six years later, we find out the aftermath of Jesse’s escape from the neo-Nazis who had tortured him in this weekend’s El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. And while the film offers a more decisive fate for Walter White’s former partner, writer-...

Warning: This post contains spoilers for El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. Jesse Pinkman rides again, figuratively and literally. When the wandering-wasteoid-turned-meth-maker-turned-broken-prisoner drove through the Nazi compound gates with a scream-laugh-cry for the ages, leaving behind Walter White to keel over beside his beloved machinery, it marked the conclusion of Breaking Bad, one of TV's most intense and celebrated dramas.

‘El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie’ Review: Well-Executed, But Unnecessary

Almost a decade ago, the ABC drama Lost came to a controversial conclusion, managing to bother more people than it pleased with a series finale that’s still being misinterpreted. A few months later, the final season was released on DVD with a 12-minute epilogue film titled “The New Man in Charge.” In the epilogue, we learned more about the futures and fates of a few members of the show’s vast ensemble. It didn’t resolve the finale’s frustrations, but was a pleasant capper to the genre-bend...

‘El Camino’ Early Buzz: Jesse Pinkman Gets the Ending He Deserves, To Mixed Results

When we last saw Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman, inarguably the most tragic character in Breaking Bad‘s Shakespearean tragedy, he had escaped from Walter White’s massacre of the neo-Nazis that had held him captive — free, feral, and driving onto the open road in an El Camino. It was the closest thing to a happy ending that creator Vince Gilligan could give one of his characters. Now El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie fills in what happens after in an epilogue that, according to critics, gives Jesse t...

Aaron Paul Summarizes ‘Breaking Bad’ In 2 Minutes And WHEW, It’s A Ride

I honestly had forgotten that two planes crash into each other Breaking Bad is one of the most intense, dark, on-the-edge-of-your-seat shows of all time. The story follows a mild-mannered high school chemistry teacher recently diagnosed with terminal cancer, which sounds like a pretty tender subject for a television show, probably filled with a lot of soft moments and tears. But anyone who’s seen the show — so like, everybody — knows that shit gets real. And by real, I mean completely wild...
