For this year’s annual reunions issue, Entertainment Weekly spoke with all five surviving members of Monty Python about their Eric Idle-directed shows last summer at London’s massive O2 arena, the legendary comedy team’s first live performances in more than three decades. In the hope of provoking some of the semi-friendly badinage for which they are famous, we also asked the quintet—Idle, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin, and Terry Jones—which other Python member irritated them most in the course of rehearsing and performing Monty Python Live (mostly) One Down Five To Go. You can read the troupe’s answers below.

For Breaking Bad fans, an action figure of Heisenberg carrying a gun might sound pretty cool. But when said action figure is sold on the same shelf as a Barbie at Toys “R” Us, well—odds are Skyler White wouldn’t be too happy about it.
Susan Myers, who started a petition on Change.org, is campaigning to get the Breaking Bad action figures removed from shelves. As Myers wrote, “Their decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children’s toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values.” READ FULL STORY
Ever since they wrote Good Will Hunting 18 years ago, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have been one of Hollywood’s most well-known bromances. But no bromance is complete without some healthy competition, which is why we’ve gone back through the years since their first Oscar win and looked at their careers.
With Samantha Highfill representing Matt Damon in one corner, and Joshua Rivera representing Ben Affleck in the other, here’s how the fight breaks down:
Taking the jokes out of an episode of Friends it like taking the meth out of an episode of Breaking Bad—it’s just wrong. And if you take the jokes out of season six’s “The One with the Apothecary Table” specifically, laughter is quickly replaced with judgment, Pottery Barn hatred, and Joey’s girlfriend Janine Lecroix, who’s just as annoying as when there were jokes involved.
The show still manages to be funny, however, because the writing wasn’t the only thing making viewers laugh. Watching Monica hit Janine with a trash bag will never be anything but immensely satisfying.
On Sunday, True Blood will kick off its 10-episode seventh and final season. The last time we saw the good folks of Bon Temps, Louisiana, things weren’t looking so good: Hepatitis V was spreading rapidly throughout the vampire population, Sookie and Alcide were a couple, and a group of hungry and infected vampires were on their way to ravaging Bon Temps.

Better Call Saul might not be the only place where Breaking Bad folks could show up in the future. (Spoilers for the finale follow, although, like, you know what happened in the finale by now, right?)
Bryan Cranston implied on CNN Thursday night that Walter White may not have died at the end of the series, despite what the episode seemed to suggest. Wait, what?
Host/superfan Ashleigh Banfield put the point to Cranston: “Your eyes were open and I thought, ‘what if the police just take him into custody, he gets better, breaks out and just goes nuts?'” (The interview is not yet online.)
Cranston played along, noting: “Hey, you never saw bags zip up or anything.”
Banfield: “Is he dead?””
Cranston: “I don’t know.”
Banfield: “No movie? No nothing? No Walter White ever again?”
Cranston: “Never say never.”
Sure, Cranston was likely just humoring her. In the finale script’s last pages, there seems to be no uncertainty about White’s fate. But who knows? Watch the “Felina” ender below, then debate if there’s any way for White to rise again. READ FULL STORY
When Fox announced its new reality series, I Wanna Marry “Harry”, many viewers flashed back to 2003 and the days of Joe Millionaire — a.k.a. the first time women were fooled into fighting for a man’s heart on TV, only to find out he wasn’t who he said he was.
But other than the whole Prince Charming angle, is there much of a difference between Joe and “Harry”? People asked Joe Millionaire winner Zora Sabrina (formerly known as Zora Andrich) to chime in. As she put it, “Just when I thought they’ve covered every reality show idea … Fox is at it again! I suppose it has been a decade, so in all fairness, a good deceptive reality show was due.” READ FULL STORY
Seth Rogen is not a Belieber.
According to Digital Spy, while talking to Howard Stern on Sirius Monday, the Neighbors star explained that he’d met the young pop star a few times. “He’s a good example of someone, who you meet, who you think you are going to hate — and then you get to hate him… you meet him and he lives up to every one of your expectations,” Rogen said.
An unscientific sampling of Twitter comments has led EW’s Fashion Elves to conclude that the following dresses from the Fash-indig known as the Met Gala have caused a divide among the masses. And if these differences of opinion are not resolved, we’re pretty sure lives will be lost, families will be split up, and the country will crumble. Well, all that OR life will go on as normal. But why risk it?
Help settle the debate by voting on six of the most polarizing dresses in our polls below. READ FULL STORY
