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.

Low Winter Sun

With Breaking Bad due to come to a finish this September, there’s room on the AMC lineup for a new critically acclaimed antihero crime drama. With some luck, Low Winter Sun could be the one to fill it.

Adapted from a 2006 British miniseries of the same title, the series follows Detroit detective Frank Agnew (Mark Strong), who with the help of his partner Joe Geddes (Lennie James) kills a fellow cop. The pair cover up their crime and believe for a spell that they’ve gotten away with the perfect murder… but of course, if they had, there’d be no show. The incident brings about an intense investigation that pushes Frank deeper and deeper into the underworld.

Low Winter Sun won’t debut for another week, but AMC is eager to get people hooked early with a little peek at the first episode. Watch the first five minutes of the premiere after the jump.

Low Winter Sun

AMC loves complicated, antiheroic protagonists, and they’re adding one more to their slate this summer with Low Winter Sun. Mark Strong and Lennie James star as a pair of Detroit detectives who kill a fellow cop and then try to cover up their misdeed.

Only it’s not that simple, of course. The crime sparks an in-depth investigation, which in turn pushes the pair further and further into moral bankruptcy. Ruben Santiago-Hudson and David Costabile (a.k.a. Gale Boetticher from your other favorite AMC antihero show) also star. Watch the new trailer after the jump.
