This New ‘Better Call Saul’ Spinoff Is Going To Shock You!

This New 'Better Call Saul' Spinoff Is Going To Shock You!

Shocking! Stunning! Amazing! All three of those words would likely accompany any “Better Call Saul” spinoff at this point. With the “Breaking Bad” prequel wrapping things up two weeks ago, with Saul Goodman stuck in jail for 86 years (give or take a few for good behavior), it’s looking like the story of our favorite criminal lawyer is all over with. Or is it? There are actually a lot of possibilities for a “Saul” spinoff. Here are a few I think would work really well: Slippin’ Kimmy: A Kim Wexler spinoff following her as she gets her life back after... Read More

‘Willy Wonka’ Was a Right Bastard, But He Was Hilarious

July 22nd, 2022
'Willy Wonka' Was a Right Bastard, But He Was Hilarious

Watching the old “Willy Wonka” movie and having the following thoughts… 1. I wonder how much Roald Dahl hated kids because every one of them aside from Charlie is a right little shit. 2. That bed with the grandparents in it has to house the worst smell in the known universe. I do not envy Charlie and his Mom for having to clean that horrible miasma up. 3. The movie is really kind of racist when you think about it. The entire world allegedly has a shot at golden tickets, both adults and children, and a bunch of white kids get them, but what’s more, when the one child of color... Read More
