Something coming to an end

Breaking Bad & Better Call Saul / YouTube

The sixth and final series of Better Call Saul has started on US network AMC and Netflix is showing the series just one day later. The first two episodes are now live on the streamer with new episodes to be released weekly. 

The Breaking Bad spin-off has been a huge success in its own right and fans will be eager to see how it all ends for Jimmy McGill, the small-time lawyer and conman who transitions to an eventually prominent defence attorney under the name Saul Goodman.

Bob Odenkirk plays the title role that has won him no fewer than four Golden Globe and four Emmy nominations without success. 

When’s it on? Streaming now on Netflix

The Rising is the story of Neve Kelly who discovers that she is dead. She’s scared and confused by this new existence but when she realises she has been murdered, she’s furious. She’s determined to find her killer and get justice, believing that it was someone she knew. 

The new supernatural thriller from Sky features Irish actress Emily Taaffe.
