2017 was a great year for TV series. For the first time in many years, Game of Thrones was not nominated for any Emmy awards, meaning that other productions also had the chance to shine. And there were many great shows to choose from, too, in all areas, from comedies to action, suspense, science fiction, and drama series. And there were many shows that haven’t gotten any Emmy nominations this year, which also offer a unique and meaningful experience to their viewers. Not to mention that there are still shows that haven’t premiered yet. Waiting for some of those can be a real burden – instead of counting the days or hours to their premiere, why not kill time with some games, like the ones at the All Jackpots? After you claim a new player welcome bonus when you join All Jackpots you can access its vast collection of games that will help you kill time until your favorite show returns to the screen – or maybe it puts some cash in your pocket, too.
Yes, we’re happy! Even straight guys can love this show – who doesn’t like lovely lesbians?
Jennifer Beals, Katherine Moenig and Leisha Hailey are all apparently attached to this new version of the show that last aired in 2009. It will be interesting to see which other stars are brought back, and which new characters will be introduced.
The level of drama on “The L Word” was a bit over-the-top by the last season, so we’ll see how the stories develop.
“Homeland” has won the award for Best Drama Series two years in a row, while Claire Danes and Damian Lewis won for best actress and best actor. It’s a pretty incredible show, even with the elevated craziness of Season 2. And while I don’t think it’s quite as good as “Breaking Bad” it’s hard to argue with these choices.
Hey, everybody, Gale’s okay! Gee, I guess Jesse’s bullet missed him after all, so…
Oh. Never mind. It’s a flashback. But, hey, at least now we know how the superlab first came into being. And we also know the sad irony that Gale is directly responsible for Gus bringing Walt into the business in the first place. So obsessive was he with his concern about the quality of the meth he was making – more concerned, even, than Gus himself – that he simply couldn’t comprehend that Gus wouldn’t want to work with someone like that, even risking the possibility of talking himself out of a job by saying of Walt, “If he’s not (a professional), I don’t know what that makes me.”
Well, as it turns out, Gale, what is makes you is dead. But, then, I think we all pretty much knew that when Season 3 faded to black. Some of us just didn’t want to admit it.
The best show on television returns tomorrow night at 10 PM on AMC. If you’re a fan of the show, enjoy the video above and all the links in this post as you get ready for the start of season 4. If you haven’t been watching, well you’re missing out. You can start watching tomorrow night, but you’re better of setting your DVR to record the first season, and getting your hands on the first three seasons.
Is “Breaking Bad” the best show ever on cable TV? Grantland’s Chuck Klosterman thinks so, arguing that it beats out other greats like “The Wire,” “The Sopranos” and “Mad Men.” It’s hard to argue with his top four, though his column gets a little too deep into criticspeak for my taste. I’ll probably stick with “The Wire” as the best show ever on cable, but “Breaking Bad” is catching up with each season.
Breaking Bad is the kind of TV show that gets described as cinematic, and that’s true in the literal sense: it looks like a movie. The astonishing landscape of New Mexico gives the show a western-film starkness and scale. “When you’re here,” says cinematographer Michael Slovis, “you can’t help but be affected by the size of the sky.” The sets are painstakingly built, especially the superlab: a temple of gleaming metal tanks, painted infernal red, that production designer Mark Freeborn built with the aid of a Drug Enforcement Administration consultant. The lab, Cranston says, is a metaphor for Walt’s compartmentalized worldview: “It’s clean. It’s isolated. He doesn’t like being reminded that he’s part of a messy, bloody business.”
Last year in Time, James Poniewozik offered a nice recap of the last episode and the relationship between Walt and Jesse. Newsweek also gets in on the discussion with some great quotes from Bryan Cranston.
