The final season premiere of Breaking Bad left us with a lot to think about. Like, a lot to think about. But what makes the show great is not only the slowly unfolding mysteries, incredible performances, writing or white knuckle tension. It’s how creator Vince Gilligan chooses to sprinkle humor in with all of that. In Sunday’s episode, Blood Money, that humor was provided in the form of Jesse Pinkman’s drugged out friends, Badger (Matt Jones) and Skinny Pete (Charles Baker) discussing Star Trek.
You see, Badger has written a script for a Star Trek movie! He just hasn’t put it on paper yet. The Internet never disappoints, though, and it’s already been animated into a cartoon. Check it out below. Read More »

“If you’re a writer tonight, you might want to hide your knives,” said Jason Reitman at Tuesday night’s special summer live read. “This script is so good you’ll never want to write again. You f***er, Vince.”
The script Reitman was referring to, the script that could get the writer/director to come back and do a live read in July when he’s not scheduled to come back until October, was the pilot of AMC’s Breaking Bad. The “Vince” is creator Vince Gilligan. And as fantastic the first episode of Breaking Bad is to watch, to hear it read reveals another level of brilliance. If you were to travel back in time, sit down with Gilligan in 2007 and ask him to describe what happens in the show over a few beers, that’s what his writing sounds like. It’s perfectly, brilliantly descriptive with a language that’s filled with vulgarity and humor. It has a conversational, culturally current tone that pops off the page.
The latest live read at the Los Angeles Country Museum of Art, presented by Film Independent, revealed not only this fantastic writing, but some fun interpretations by great actors, appearances by the original actors, deleted scenes and more. Read about it below. Read More »
If you haven’t already figured it out, Sunday’s Breaking Bad panel at San Diego Comic-Con was fantastic. Bryan Cranston in a Bryan Cranston mask, the first few minutes of the new season screened, it was an hour jam-packed with awesome.
Besides those two standout moments, there was also a fantastic conversation between moderator Chris Hardwick and creator Vince Gilligan, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Bob Odenkirk and RJ Mitte. Hardwick revealed the final eight episodes of the show will be followed by Talking Bad, a recap show he’ll host to help us digest what we see in each episode. Plus, the team talked about how one major death was imagined differently, the tone on set and their level of satisfaction with the ending. Below, check out the 12 things we learned about Breaking Bad and watch an excellent five season recap video. Read More »
Why does Walter White have a beard, what’s he doing with that thing in the trunk and what happens after the toilet? These are just some of the questions that will be answered starting August 11 when the final 8 episodes of Breaking Bad begin to air. The majority of the show’s cast, along with creator Vince Gilligan, took the Hall H stage on the last day of San Diego Comic-Con to talk about the show’s legacy.

Just a few weeks remain until the final eight episodes of Breaking Bad begin to air on AMC. Fans across the world have begun to rewatch the previous seasons in anticipation. (New Yorkers can catch prior seasons of the show for free at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center Amphitheater from July 26-30.) There’s a good chance, however, that the world of Breaking Bad be closed for good come this fall.
For months we’ve heard show creator Vince Gilligan was considering a spin-off series focusing on Walter White’s crooked lawyer, Saul Goodman, memorably played by Bob Odenkirk. Gilligan admitted he wants to do the show, but has been unsure of how to go about it. Prequel? Maybe a sequel? In a new interview, Gilligan doesn’t answer that question, but does say he and fellow writer Peter Gould are moving “full speed ahead” with the project. They hope to pitch it to Sony in the near future. As of now, it’s Gilligan’s only planned post-Breaking Bad project. Read More »
