While Albuquerque was always literally on the map, Breaking Bad helped establish it in terms of pop culture. Vince Gilligan‘s show shot on location in the New Mexico city for six years as it continued to gain an audience on AMC, turning Albuquerque into a tourist attraction.
It seems only fitting, then, that in Friday’s edition of local newspaper The ABQ Journal, an obituary ran for a character that didn’t survive the series. If you haven’t seen the finale yet, obviously, this is a big spoiler. Read More »

Walter White has many looks. We’ve seen him as a normal father, cooking meth, as Heisenberg, and more. To celebrate the end of Breaking Bad, popular artist Olly Moss is giving fans a chance to own not one, but six, different Walts. For the next 24 hours or so, Moss is selling “Minute Walts,” which are small drawings of the popular character in his different outfits. You can buy one, or all six. See them in more detail below.

The genius of the Breaking Bad finale was that everything that happened in it felt so inevitable, even obvious in retrospect. Of course the ricin was for [spoiler]. Of course [spoiler] got revenge. Of course Walt [spoiler spoiler] in a [spoiler spoiler spoiler].
Yet in the days leading up to that episode, how the show would end was anyone’s guess. And Vince Gilligan is the first to admit that Walt’s path wasn’t always so clear. The writers settled on the conclusion we got only after discussing several other potential outcomes. Hit the jump to see how else Breaking Bad could’ve ended. (Massive spoilers follow, obviously.)

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.

Just two years ago, AMC was thinking about letting Breaking Bad go. Despite critical acclaim, they deemed the show too expensive with less than impressive ratings and looked at options to move the show somewhere else. My how times have changed. After deciding against this and renewing the show for its two-part final season, the show picked up incredible momentum. The explosive (get it?) fourth season finale had 1.9 million viewers. Season five debuted with 2.93 million. The second half debuted with an incredible 5.92 million and the penultimate episode blew all those away with 6.58 million.
At that rate, everyone knew Sunday’s finale will be the highest rated episode of the entire series, assuring the show would go out on top. But the final numbers are in and, it’s way bigger than anyone imagined. Read More »

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.
