For as much hype as 'Breaking Bad' will build for the final eight episodes premiering on August 11, it's looking more and more and more like Walter White's story won't be the last we see of the 'Breaking Bad' universe. Series creator Vince Gilligan's proposed spinoff with character Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) is reportedly moving "full speed ahead" at AMC, whether we want it to, or not.
Weeks ago 'Breaking Bad' fans were surprised (and a bit apprehensive) to hear that series creator Vince Gilligan had given serious thought to the idea of a spinoff for fan-favorite character Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk), presumably implying the character's survival of the upcoming final episodes.

Though the rumor had presented before, yesterday saw the revelation that 'Breaking Bad' and AMC were seriously considering the possibility of a Saul-centric spinoff of the acclaimed drama, to see actor Bob Odenkirk reprising the slippery lawyer character of Saul Goodman in a new context.

With AMC's acclaimed drama 'Breaking Bad' heading into its final eight episodes this summer, fans of the New Mexican meth drama have begun taking stock of the many aspects to be missed when the saga comes to an end.

FX's fantasy sport comedy 'The League' may not receive as much attention as its sibling 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,' or even the other FX comedies, but it sure knows how to bring the thunder now and again.

Who else is on deck for 'The League' season 4?
After a seven year absence, director Alexander Payne returned last year with the exceptional 'The Descendants.' Thankfully, we won't be waiting nearly as long for his next film.

Even as it heads into its third season beginning on Sunday September 30, it's easy for 'Bob's Burgers' to have slipped through the cracks when it comes to FOX animation, particularly with the choke-hold Seth MacFarlane seems to have. Still, compounding the recent news of an 'Archer' cross-over with H. Jon Benjamin, 'Bob's Burgers' season 3 is easily going to grab your attention with guest stars like 'Mad Men's Jon Hamm, and a deluxe feast of others you need to see to believe.
'Breaking Bad' star Bob Odenkirk has been around long enough, and played such a variety of guest spot that you've undoubtedly forgotten where you've seen him before, unless you were a 'Mr. Show' fan.
