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.)

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 (S5E14 “Ozymandias”), 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.

AMC Plans ‘The Walking Dead’ Spinoff

The Walking Dead

Better call… Robert Kirkman? As Breaking Bad fans speculate about the developing spinoff series Better Call Saul, AMC has announced a companion show for another of its biggest hits, The Walking Dead.

The as yet unnamed scripted series will follow the zombie apocalypse from another perspective, following a fresh set of characters in a brand-new plotline. Like the original show, the new drama will be based on Kirkman’s long-running comic series. Hit the jump for more details. Read More »

‘The Killing’ Gets Killed Again

The Killing 16

It’s been about a year since AMC announced that The Killing would not continue beyond Season 2, but as we know, that decision didn’t stick. Netflix and DirecTV quickly expressed interest in picking up the mystery series, and within a few months AMC had changed its mind and greenlit a third season.

Now, however, AMC’s decided to kill The Killing again. And this time, we suspect a revival is not in the cards. Hit the jump for more details.

Breaking Bad science

Walter White considers himself to be a damn brilliant chemist on Breaking Bad, but does his science hold up under real-life scrutiny? That’s the question posed by the latest episode of Fact or Fictional, the web series hosted by Veronica Belmont.

Guest expert Dr. Jovana J. Grbic, who holds a PhD in chemistry, examines Walt’s fulminated mercury trick, his use of methylamine to cook drugs, and his solution to the dead RV battery (which was not a robot, to Jesse’s eternal disappointment). She even offers some insight into Walt’s personality as a scientist. Watch the video after the jump.
