'Breaking Bad' Off the Air Until July 2011: Online Mini-Episodes Planned

by Ryan McKee, posted Aug 5th 2010 9:40AM
'Breaking Bad's' Bryan Cranston could pull a three-peat with an Emmy win for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama on Aug. 29, but there won't be a four-peat: The show will not premiere its fourth season until July 2011, more than a full year after June's conclusion of season 3. That means the show will not be eligible for next year's Emmy Awards.

"I think what AMC is thinking here is there will be less competition for us -- particularly from the broadcast networks -- if we launch our season during the summer than if we come back again like we did this time in March," Cranston told Deadline.

Legless Assassin on 'Breaking Bad'When Walter White first checked in on Leonel in the hospital, it looked as though the assassin was down for the count -- what with having both his legs blown off. But 'Breaking Bad' (Sun., 10PM ET on AMC) is rarely so straightforward.

How did the cousins become the cold, unfeeling mutants we've perceived them to be? It started with a dunk in the beer bucket. Uncle's lesson may have been about family, but what sunk in to the youthful psychopaths was how to kill someone in one minute. A minute would turn out to be their undoing ...

The Law Comes in Handy on 'Breaking Bad' (VIDEO)

by Chris Harnick, posted Apr 26th 2010 9:31AM
Breaking Bad - Bryan CranstonOn a show about drugs, you wouldn't expect Walter (Bryan Cranston), the main character, to be saved by the law. However, that was the case on 'Breaking Bad' (Sun., 10PM on AMC), when Walter and Jesse (Aaron Paul) got trapped in their meth lab RV.

Jesse inadvertently leads the Drug Enforcement Administration to the RV, causing quite a bit of panic, but the owner of the lot saves the day.

"Got a warrant?" he asked the Hank (Dean Norris). Unfazed by the Hank's disregard, the lot owner persisted in his questioning. "I'm the owner of this lot, which means you're trespassing on private property. As far as the RV goes, it seems to me it's locked, which means you're trying to break and enter. This is a domicile, a residence and thus protected by the fourth amendment from unlawful search and seizure."

'Breaking Bad' - 'Sunset' Recap

(S03E06) The word "pivotal" doesn't even begin to describe this episode. When it was over, I let out a "Jimmy H. Carter!" so loud that it freaked out my fiancee -- imagine another name with the initials "J.C." instead of "Jimmy Carter" and you'll get the idea.

'Breaking Bad' - 'Green Light' Recap

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 12th 2010 12:01AM
Bryan Cranston in 'Breaking Bad' - 'Green Light'(S03E04) Even on cable shows that are tightly plotted because of their short seasons, there are sometimes episodes that feel more like they're setting things up for the episodes to come rather than pushing the story arc forward. This week felt like one of those episodes.

I wouldn't classify it as a "throat-clearing" kind of episode, because, even when treading water, 'Breaking Bad' still retains its intensity and sense of drama. But after the first three rollicking episodes, it was interesting to see the show take an hour to collect its thoughts and linger for a little while.

Walter Gives Skyler Drug Money on 'Breaking Bad' (VIDEO)

Walter Justifies Drug Money on 'Breaking Bad'On last night's 'Breaking Bad' (Sun., 10PM ET on AMC), Walter (Bryan Cranston) handed over to his wife (Anna Gunn) the fruits of his (criminal) labor -- an enormous bag of money.

As he explained, "In this bag is the college tuition for Walter Jr., and Holly, it is health insurance for you and the kids ... this roof over your head." She's less than enthused by the gesture. But he feels justified: "I've done a terrible thing, but I did it for a good reason ... All the sacrifices I have made for this family will be for nothing if you don't accept what I've earned."

'Breaking Bad' - 'I.F.T.' Recap

'Breaking Bad' - 'I.F.T.'
(S03E03)
One of the aspects of 'Breaking Bad' that amazes me week after week, and one of the things that makes it one of the most compelling shows on television, is this:

Intellectually, as you watch Walter White lie his way through his family's lives and the lives of everyone he comes in contact with, you know he's one of the biggest bastards on TV. And, also intellectually, you watch Skyler have to suffer through all of Walt's lies -- at least the ones she knows about -- and you know she's trying her best to protect herself and her children from someone who's become a monster she no longer recognizes.

But, here's the compelling part: No matter how rationally I think about the situation, I still don't know who to root for.

Bryan Cranston Arrested on 'Breaking Bad'Poor Walter (Bryan Cranston). Pulled over for a damaged windshield, he goes against regulation and steps out of his car. Here's how the verbal match unfolded on 'Breaking Bad' (Sun., 10PM ET on AMC).

Walter: "It's time for you to listen to me. This is America. I have rights. At least have the common decency to hear me out! ... Hellfire rained down on my house."

Nope, no common decency here. Just pepper spray, cuffs and a ride in the back of a cruiser.

'Breaking Bad' - 'Caballo Sin Nombre' Recap

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 29th 2010 1:00AM
Bryan Cranston, 'Breaking Bad'(S03E02) Last season, we had to wait until the end to see what the cold open was all about each week. This time around, the scary pair of bald Mexicans worked their way into the main story almost immediately, even if it's still unclear what their objective is. In fact, the climax at the White house that wrapped this episode had so much going on, it was almost overwhelming.

Vince Gilligan and company continue to take things slow, after the bombshell revelation that Walter laid on Skyler last week. Walter's clearly in a state of crisis, and he's becoming unraveled completely because of it. He's without direction and focus. Everything he did for the past two seasons he did for his family; albeit misguided and taking things way, way too far.

He at least had a purpose and there was always a goal behind the production of meth: making enough money to keep his family going after he died ... then to pay for his treatment and surgery ... then to pay for Holly, the new and unexpected baby. Now, he's lost everything and he's lost in response.

Big Opening for 'Breaking Bad'

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 23rd 2010 12:02PM
breaking_bad_amc_season_threeThis is really, really good news. This is the kind of news that has to make every television fan cheer ... and breathe a sigh of relief. The season three premiere of 'Breaking Bad' was seen by two million viewers. For a network show, that would be cause for alarm. For AMC, it's a reason to celebrate. Those two million viewers were the most to ever tune in to an episode of 'Breaking Bad.' Did you hear that, world? 'Breaking Bad's' most-watched episode ever.

The numbers were spun, naturally, and they got even better. There were two repeats of 'No Mas' that night, and the total number of viewers climbed to 3.3 million.

Anna Gunn on the 'Breaking Bad' Bombshell

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 22nd 2010 2:02PM
Anna Gunn of 'Breaking Bad'In season two of 'Breaking Bad,' viewers saw Anna Gunn's character of Skyler White go from long-suffering wife of cancer-patient-slash-meth-maker Walter White to a person who is starting to have her own moral dilemmas.

But right at the start of the third season, Skyler's world gets turned upside down. I can't say more without spoiling things, which is why I postponed posting the interview I did with Anna Gunn in January until after the season three premiere aired. Gunn and I talk about the first episode bombshell and how her character reacted. We also talk about what might be in store for Skyler and son Walt Jr. (RJ MItte) in season three.

Our friends at AOL TV also spoke to Gunn recently, if you want to find out more about what's in store for Skyler.

(WARNING: Spoilers of the season three premiere are ahead!)

'Breaking Bad' - 'No Mas' Recap (Season Premiere)

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 22nd 2010 12:09AM
breaking_bad_amc_season_3_premiere(S03E01) The return of 'Breaking Bad' is a reason to celebrate. No, it's not that Walter White is the kind of character you cheer for and enjoy watching. Rather, it's that the ongoing story of Walt, the very act of his breaking bad, is the most compelling television currently on the air.

There are elements of 'Breaking Bad' that are simply unmatched on any other drama series. This return picks up precisely where the last season ended, albeit a few days later, but the tone, the time and the emotional dynamite is firmly intact. Be prepared for the ride of your life in the weeks ahead.
