breaking bad

Breaking Bad ended its run less than two months ago, but if you’re already eager to relive Walt’s journey from Mr. Chips to Scarface, the Breaking Bad: The Complete Series collector’s set is due out next week. And today, to show you just what’s inside, series creator Vince Gilligan has taped an unboxing video.

(Mild late season 5 spoiler coming up…) Though the case that the discs come in is an “absolutely nuts-on perfect recreation” of the money barrel that Walt buried at To’hajiilee, it does not, sadly, contain millions of dollars in cold hard cash. It does, however, contain quite a few other goodies, including a Pollos Hermanos apron, a challenge coin, a making-of documentary, and of course, all 62 episodes of the acclaimed drama. Watch the video after the jump.

AMC Ordering ‘Preacher’ Pilot

preacher-banner

Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s comic series Preacher was crazy. Not just kinda violent, kinda weird, but full-on crazy. For example, it’s got a character whose failed Kurt Cobain-emulating suicide attempt, leads to a grotesquely mangled face and the nickname “Arseface,” none of which precludes him becoming a pop superstar. It features one antagonist whose sexual proclivities turn towards the nigh-unprintable extreme, and whose body is steadily chipped away over the course of the story.

Oh, and the lead character is a small-town Texas preacher whose best friend is a junkie Irish vampire, and who is possessed of a god-like power called Genesis. That power was born of the coupling between angel and demon, and allows him to command a person to do anything with absolute authority. Like “count all the sand on this beach,” which leads one character to do exactly that. Oh, and the preacher, Jesse, wants to find God and fight him.

But if you’re AMC, which needs something to follow Breaking Bad, full-on crazy might be just the thing. And so Preacher has reportedly been ordered to pilot at the company. And there’s a big question that came up after the first announcement was made: Seth Rogen tweeted two statements that suggest he’s got something to do with the adaptation.

The ‘Walking Dead’ Spinoff Might Be a Prequel

walking-dead-season-two-first-look

AMC was pretty light on specifics when they first announced plans for a The Walking Dead spinoff. All they said at the time was that it would hone in on “a new corner of The Walking Dead universe” with “an entirely new story and cast of characters.” And while they have yet to confirm any new details, the unofficial word going around is that the new show could be a prequel. Hit the jump to read about what that might look like.

Night of the Living Dead

George A. Romero gave birth to the modern zombie with 1968′s Night of the Living Dead, and at present the most popular example of that horror subgenre is The Walking Dead. A Romero-directed episode of the AMC series, then, seems like a natural fit. But sorry, gore junkies, Romero just isn’t interested.

In a recent interview, Romero revealed that he’d actually been approached to work on the horror show, but declined because he didn’t think The Walking Dead focused enough on the zombies. Read his comments after the jump.

Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman on Breaking Bad

AMC was careful to specify that Better Call Saul would be a prequel when it first announced its plans for the spinoff series, but the ending of Breaking Bad left us wanting to know what happened after that grand finale. Luckily, Bob Odenkirk says there’s a chance we could still find out.

According to him, Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould have also discussed the idea of doing Better Call Saul as a sequel, or perhaps a prequel/sequel hybrid. Hit the jump to read his comments. (Spoilers for Breaking Bad follow, duh.)

Relive Five Seasons of ‘Breaking Bad’ in 7 Minutes

Breaking Bad Pilot Bryan Cranston

Between returning favorites like Homeland and Eastbound & Down, and promising new shows like Masters of Sex and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, it’s certainly not like there’s any shortage of fun stuff to watch on TV right now. Even so, we can’t help but miss Breaking Bad‘s Heisenberg. We spent five seasons following his journey, after all. The TV landscape feels a bit more empty without him.

Fortunately for those of you suffering from Walt withdrawal, there’s an easy fix. One devoted fan has put together a seven-minute video tribute to the world’s greatest meth cook, covering all five seasons of his epic arc. Check it out after the jump.

Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston

Breaking Bad finished shooting months ago, which means that while the rest of us have been formulating elaborate theories on how the show would end, the cast and crew have just been sitting back and smiling knowingly at our guesses. But there was a time when they didn’t know what to expect, either.

A recently uploaded video shows stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul preparing to read the “Felina” script over a couple of beers at Cranston’s place. “I’m so unbelievably depressed that this is happening right now!” Paul wails at one point. Check out the video after the jump.
