‘Agent Carter’ Season Finale Review: ‘Valediction’

EDIT

The terrorist incident that begins tonight’s finale of Agent Carter will inevitably draw comparisons to the very similar chemical weapon deployed in Kingsman: The Secret Service. But where Matthew Vaughn’s film revels almost gleefully in the energetic violence, Agent Carter looks on the aftermath of that violence with grave horror. It’s a significant distinction—even with the vintage look and tone of Agent Carter, which still has its fair share of cheeky fun, the show still gives these threats and harrowing moments their proper gravity.

The gallant extravagance of NBC’s 40th anniversary SNL special left us less-than-enthused for 50 Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson to return us to normal this Saturday, but our first March host will verily bring the thunder. Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth will take the SNL stage as our March 7 host, but what musical accompaniment mayeth the Asgardian Avenger summon?

Premiering this Sunday, Lord and Miller FOX comedy The Last Man on Earth still presents as something of a mystery, even with fan-favorite SNL alum Will Forte at the helm. We’ve seen a number of the basic gags in previews of the new series, but do the first full clips an a new promo clue us in to The Last Man on Earth?

For years, people have wondered if Kenny G, king of contemporary smooth jazz, has a sense of humor. He seems very serious and very dedicated – and let’s be real here, very talented – and that hasn’t saved him from being the butt of many jokes. But was the real joke that Kenny G was in on the joke? Based on his appearance on last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, we’re now convinced that the man knows exactly what he’s doing, and he’s relishing it.

The Kimmel School of Perfect Acting Blooper Reel Is Just as Funny as the Actual Sketch

The secret is, Jimmy Kimmel’s School of Perfect Acting is perhaps the worst acting school on the planet. Let these outtakes and bloopers make that perfectly (tee hee) clear. In his annual post-Oscars show, the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host unveiled a look at his eponymous acting school, where’s he trained such stars as Gary Oldman, Jeff Bridges, and Jennifer Aniston, thanks to his decidedly off-beat tactics. Has it profitable? Sure. Is it safe? No.

This could have gone so badly. On last night’s Tonight Show, host Jimmy Fallon busted out his “Musical Impression Generator” – which, we’re just going to say it, we think is rigged and not at all random – to have a little fun with his guest Christina Aguilera. The songstress was tasked with imitating a bunch of other female singers – see? rigged! – but the highlight of the entire segment (the entire show?) came when she was asked to pretend to be Britney Spears.

‘Better Call Saul’ Review: “Hero”

EDIT

AMC
It’s almost impossible to watch Better Call Saul without viewing the series through the lens of Breaking Bad. The former would not exist without the latter, but it’s interesting to consider a world in which Breaking Bad never existed and Bob Odenkirk might have been given a weekly hour-long series on AMC about the slippery slope a struggling lawyer charismatically slides down on his way to success. Although both shows share a particular cinematic style and feature the varying, gray shades of morality, the comparisons just about end there, as they should.
