‘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 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.

Battle of The Singing Shows

Well not exactly. There is lots of news coming out recently for all the singing competition shows. Some judges have finally been picked on one show and on another some have been replaced.

Over on American Idol, the judges have been finalized. And the judges for season 12 are: the already announced Mariah Carey, the downgraded then upgraded Randy Jackson, the crazy insane Nicki Minaj, and the country crooner Keith Urban.

True Blood Season 5 Premiere Postmortem ***Spoilers***

True Blood’s Season 5 premiered last Sunday and it did not disappoint. It picked up from where it left off last season with Tara’s brains on the floor, Debbie dead, and Bill and Eric killing Nan. There were so many crazy things in this episode that in hindsight are just a normal day in Bon Temps but as I was watching all I could say was wow. The scene with Eric and his “sister” was so ridiculous. I was like wasn’t just pinning over Sookie like 3 scenes ago and what is it with Jason Stackhouse that everyone is so in love with? He has to be the dumbest character on the show. It’s like he walks in the room and chicks start taking their clothes off. It’s quite hilarious.

I know a lot of people hate Tara but I like her. When I saw them shoot her last season, I just thought Rutina Wesley was done on the show. I didn’t think they would be bringing her back because I mean literally her brains were all over Sookie’s kitchen. I didn’t think that she could be made into a vampire. It’s predictable but I just didn’t see it happening. Now that it has and her maker is Pam, I am looking forward to Rutina Wesley and Kristin Bauer working together. I think this will give Tara a lot to work with and make her not so much of a victim. It might also lighten her up a bit because Pam is funny as hell. I think Lafayette and her have the funniest lines. It’s gonna be a crazy season with the Authority, Russell escaping and Terry’s craziness coming to the forefront. I can’t wait.

Best line from the premiere. When Sookie questions Pam’s team spirit in helping them turn Tara, she replies, “I am wearing a Wal-Mart sweatsuit for y’all. If that’s not a demonstration of team spirit, I don’t know what is.”

Episode 2 airs tonight at 9/8c on HBO. Here is a promo.

Trailers Galore

A ton of trailers for different movies and shows came out in the past few days. Here are some of the big ones.

Tom Cruise in the musical Rock of Ages

The movie has a whole hell of a lot of people in it from Mary J Blige, Julianne Hough, Alec Baldwin to Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti and Malin Akerman. Its just looks like a huge disaster and I’m not sure how this is going to pan out especially with Julianne Hough in the mix. She’s just such a bad actress. See for yourself.

Rock of Ages opens June 15, 2012.

True Blood Teaser Clip

The residents of Bon Temps will be returning this summer and in order to whet your appetites before the premiere, HBO sent out this teaser clip. It looks even crazier than last season’s and last season was nuts. Hopefully it be a great one since it’ll be Alan Ball’s last one as showrunner.
