I’ve been in Albuquerque New Mexico for a couple set visits, and while I’ve driven by some Breaking Bad locations, I’ve still never been to Twisters, the fast food restaurant that was the filming location for the show’s fictional fried-chicken fast-food chain Los Pollos Hermanos. I’ve seen tons of photos from fans visiting the location and have always wanted to take a detour there but its yet to happen.
Well, it looks like I might not need to go back to Albuquerque to visit Los Pollos Hermanos, as Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan revealed during his Reddit AMA that discussions are ongoing to turn Los Pollos Hermanos restaurant into a real fast food chain.

Deliberately throwing stuff onto a stranger’s roof is a jerk movie pretty much any time, especially when the thrown object is something that is a pain to clean up and primed to slowly decompose. And when random people are throwing the same thing on the same roof over and over again, it gets really irritating. But some Breaking Bad fans evidently can’t stop throwing pizza onto the roof of the house used as Walter White’s home in the series, and that’s becoming a problem for the people who actually live there. Now show creator Vince Gilligan is asking fans to cut it out. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Of all the TV shows coming to the small screen in 2015, Vince Gilligan‘s Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul has to be among the most anticipated. The show premieres February 8 and 9 on AMC and will explore the character of Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk. In Breaking Bad, it always seemed like Saul had connections to some really, really messed up people and this show – which is set before, during and after Breaking Bad depending on the story – will give us a better idea of how a struggling lawyer named James McGill became the slimy lawyer Saul.
AMC has just released our best look yet at the show via a cool new 30 second TV spot. It’s almost all new footage, so check out the Better Call Saul trailer below. Read More »

A few more details on that are below, along with a nice (if short) new Better Call Saul trailer. Read More »
The Breaking Bad spin-off show Better Call Saul doesn’t premiere until February. (And we don’t even know precisely when in February.) But promotions for the show are already starting. A Breaking Bad marathon on AMC was capped off this weekend by this new Better Call Saul video featuring a song that could well be the show’s theme tune. Sung by Junior Brown, the country ditty has lyrics by show creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould. The video, which is pretty entertaining on its own, has some new footage from the show, while the lyrics could tease the sort of stories we can expect to see in the series. Read More »

Walter White may have had a rough year, but Breaking Bad had a great one. The AMC drama practically swept the 2014 Emmy Awards tonight with five wins, including Best Drama Series. The only series to pick up more statuettes this year was Sherlock: His Last Vow — and that’s only if you count the four Creative Arts Emmys it won earlier this month on top of the three it picked up during the telecast.
On the comedy side, Emmy voters continued to be high on Modern Family, which won Best Comedy Series for the fifth year in a row. Indeed, the most noticeable pattern to emerge in 2014, better or for worse, was Emmy’s preference for repeat winners over new ones. All four victors in the major acting categories had won before. Meanwhile, newbies like Orange Is the New Black and Silicon Valley were shut out. Even True Detective managed just one win during the ceremony, for director Cary Joji Fukunaga. Oh well. At least Fargo went home with Best Miniseries.
Hit the jump for the full list of winners.
