As we promised in “The Ones Who Knock” Kickstarter, I did weekly recaps here for each episode of Breaking Bad. For those of you unfamiliar with my recapping style, it’s less of a straightforward plot summary and more a distillation of the most interesting elements of each week’s episode.  The recaps will spoil everything up through the current episode (S5E16 “Felina”), but won’t spoil any future episodes or even scenes from the “Next Time” segment of the show..because that’s all over now. So hold on to your pork pie hats, because here we go.

As we promised in “The Ones Who Knock” Kickstarter, I will be doing weekly recaps here for each episode of Breaking Bad. For those of you unfamiliar with my recapping style, it’s less of a straightforward plot summary and more a distillation of the most interesting elements of each week’s episode.  The recaps will spoil everything up through the current episode (S5E15 “Granite State”), but won’t spoil any future episodes or even scenes from the “Next Time” segment of the show.  There will, however, be some light speculation and straight-up crackpot theories.  No theory or speculation is based on foreknowledge of the show.  So hold on to your pork pie hats, because here we go.

Breaking Bad - Ozymandias

The final season of Breaking Bad has become increasingly painful to watch, in the best way possible, but it seems we’ll have to bear the unbearable a bit longer than expected. Series co-executive producer Peter Gould has announced that the final two episodes of the meth drama will run long, amounting to about 30 additional minutes in total.

That’s a lot of extra time to spend clenching your fists and holding your breath. Fortunately, the Internet has come up with a perfect way to relieve some of that tension. The fan-made Breaking Bad video game allows you to travel back to the relatively lighthearted early days, when Walt was just a sick family man in his tighty-whities. Hit the jump for more on the extra-long episodes and the game.

Breaking Bad - Ozymandias

There are still two episodes left of AMC’s Breaking Bad, but on Sunday night, “Ozymandias” brought some of the show’s major driving conflicts to a head. The result was one of the most incredible hours of television in recent memory — or possibly even, if IMDb users are to be trusted, in all of small-screen history.

Yes, in addition to setting the series record for the most-watched episode of all time, “Ozymandias” has also become the highest-rated episode of any TV show ever on the movie and film database, with a perfect 10/10 score. At least for now. More talk about “Ozymandias” as a series high after the jump.

It’s not a Ted Chaough-centric spinoff (sorry, Kevin Rahm), but AMC has figured out a way to spend some extra time with the SC&P team. The network announced today that it would split the seventh and final season of Mad Men into two parts, just as it did with Season 5 of Breaking Bad. Hit the jump to find out when the episodes will air.

Last night, director Rian Johnson delivered what may have been the most intense episode yet of the most intense season of the most intense show on television. We’re talking, of course, about Breaking Bad‘s “Ozymandias.”

Scripted by Moira Walley-Beckett – the Emmy-nominated scribe who was also behind “Gliding Over All” and “Fly” — the episode delivered several long-awaited moments, in the most jaw-dropping, gut-wrenching ways possible. In between creating all that drama, though, Johnson apparently found the time to document his last-ever episode for the series. Check out his behind-the-scenes photos after the jump. (Spoilers follow.)
