‘Breaking Bad’ Draws Record 6.4 Million Viewers Sunday


This has been nothing but amazing this year. Last night’s episode was… I don’t even have the words still for what last night’s episode was. I felt completely drained at the end and there are still 2 episodes left. If you have not checked out this show before (what are you waiting for) catch up on Netflix as all 5 seasons are on it.

Breaking Bad Prequel Spin-Off Better Call Saul Ordered to Series at AMC


I am so excited about this. First of all Saul is a great character. Second, since it will be a prequel this means that we will see all the clients that Gus deals with including Gustavo (Gus) Fring played by the wonderfully talented and handsome Giancarlo Esposito. Good job AMC.

Breaking Bad Prequel Spin-Off Better Call SaulWant to keep a fan-favorite character going after the show on which he appeared comes to a close?

Better Call Saul!

On Wednesday, AMC and Sony Pictures Television — the parties behind Breaking Bad — reached an agreement to create a BB prequel centering on Walter White’s shady lawyer Saul Goodman.

The project, which has been rumored for months,  will bypass the traditional pilot process and go straight to series.

The network announced that the one-hour spin-off  “will focus on the evolution” of the morally-challenged counselor before he became Heisenberg’s defender.

How soon before? That’s a good question. Bob Odenkirk plays Saul in Bad, which will have its series finale on Sept. 29; AMC has not said whether the actor will inhabit the role in the prequel, which has the possibility of depicting Goodman…

Breaking Bad Sunday


BREAKING BAD IS BACK!!!!! The second part of season 5 begins tonight on AMC. I feel like it has been a year since this show was off the air. I knew about this show but never got on it for some idiotic reason. Thank God for me being a student and having winter breaks off because December 2012 is when I finally got it together and watched the show.

For anyone that has waited for this to return, you will not be disappointed. When we last saw them, Hank (Dean Norris), Walt’s DEA brother-in-law, had just stumbled upon a huge clue that made him realize that Walt is Heisenberg; Walt (Bryan Cranston) killed Mike (Jonathan Banks) and had also had all of Gus’ former employees killed in prison. He also paid Jesse (Aaron Paul) all the money he owed him and told Skylar (Anna Gunn) that he retired from the business.

The episode back will not disappoint. I had the pleasure of going to the Los Angeles première about 2 or 3 weeks ago and watching it with the cast (I met Aaron Paul – the nicest guy ever). The episode starts with a small recap of the entire show and then resumes from where it ended with Hank in the bathroom figuring out that Walt Heisenberg. I won’t say anything further about the episode but I’ll just say this – the end of the episode is EVERYTHING.

AMC is showing all the previous season 5 episodes today at 12:30/11:30am leading up to the première of part 2 at 9pm/8c.  If you don’t want to wait, the entire series is on Netflix to binge on. Also be sure to catch Talking Bad after the episode airs where the last 8 episodes of the series will be discussed.

Netflix and AMC Try To Resurrect “The Killing”


Why are they trying to bring back this show? The first season was good, the second not so much. Why do we need a 3rd?

TVLine

This story is taking on more twists and turns than the Rosie Larsen murder mystery.

Three months after TVLine first broke the news that Netflix was in early talks to resurrect AMC’s cancelled serial thriller The Killing, the ink on the deal is nearly dry.

But in a surprising twist, the new season would actually air on AMC first, per our sister site Deadline.

SCOOP | Fresh Spoilers on Once Upon a Time, Scandal, NCIS and More in Matt’s Inside Line!

The pact would call for AMC to share the cost of a third season with Netflix, with the cabler getting first crack at airing the new episodes. This mirrors the similar (and successful) split-window arrangement NBC and DirecTV had with Friday Night Lights.

In an interview over the summer, leading man Joel Kinnaman (who, like co-star Mireille Enos, is already signed on for Season 3) told TVLine that…

Random


Random stuff that tickled me or that I wanted to talk about from the past week.

Let’s start with Kristen Stewart coming out and apologizing for cheating on her Twilight costar and boyfriend of almost 4 years, Rob Pattinson. This situation is sad as infidelity is one of the many things I hate that people do in relationships but because Pattinson was gonna propose to his lady love and the guy Stewart cheated with, her director from Snow White and The Huntsman, Rupert Sanders is married and has two kids. All of that is sad but is some hilarity in this situation and that comes in the form of the Twihards, crazy Twilight fanatics. These people are so invested in that story that they are just lol devastated by this. They want to know how Stewart could do this to Rob and them and now hate her and such. They are literally in tears and histerics over it. It’s HILARIOUS. Watch this video of one crazy Twihard expressing her feelings about the whole cheating scandal.  Continue reading Random
