Breaking Bad - RV

We’re still in the midst of the Peak TV era, and while our television screens are practically bursting with a multitude of fantastic new television shows seemingly every day, one show still stands above the rest for me. I consider Breaking Bad to be a major contender for the title of the greatest television show of all time. But as much as I love it, I’m hesitant about ever seeing a revival of the series; I’d much rather see something like Better Call Saul, a spin-off set in the same universe that’s allowed to carve out its own identity.

But a virtual reality experience? That’s a different story. Now we have word that showrunner Vince Gilligan is developing a piece of VR storytelling that might continue the saga of drug kingpin Walter White and the tormented Jesse Pinkman. Read everything we know about the Breaking Bad VR experience below.

Bryan Cranston in Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad came to a definitive and dramatic conclusion back in 2013, but even now some questions remain. Like: what’s the real story behind Walter White’s exit from Grey Matter Technology all those years ago? Fans of the show know it was a pivotal moment in Walter White’s pre-meth-kingpin history, leaving him bitter and therefore helping to put him on the path to destruction. But the show has been pretty vague about how it all went down.

Well, series creator Vince Gilligan is here to tell you. After clearing up the mystery of what ever happened to Huell last year, he’s back with an answer to your questions about Walt’s departure from Grey Matter.  Read More »

‘Better Call Saul’ Will Be Back for Season 3

Better Call Saul Season 2

Jimmy McGill’s transformation into Saul Goodman has been a wonder to watch: precise, deliberate, gorgeously shot, impressively acted, and more than a little heartbreaking. And the evolution is going to continue for at least another year. AMC has just renewed Better Call Saul for a third season, just as the series hits the halfway point of its second.  Read More »

Better Call Saul S2 First Look

Better Call Saul surprised a lot of people in 2014. How could a spin-off prequel show featuring a side character from a TV show, even one as excellent as Breaking Bad, tell a viable story? Creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, with Bob Odenkirk to play Jimmy McGill, showed everyone how to do it, and Better Call Saul became a hit with audiences and critics alike, scoring seven Primetime Emmy Awards nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, and Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series.

The producers are bringing the show to AMC’s panels at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, and we’ll likely have more news from that later today. For now we’ve got two Better Call Saul S2 first-look photos (one featuring creators Gilligan and Gould) taken from the set of the show as it films in Albuquerque, NM. Read More »

Breaking Bad - Saul Goodman and Walter White

Breaking Bad Huell

As far as TV series finales go, Breaking Bad‘s was pretty great. Vince Gilligan gave satisfying sendoffs to our favorite characters, tying up all the loose ends in a big, beautiful bow. Well — most of the loose ends. The last we saw of Huell, he was waiting in the safe house for Hank and Gomez.

Los Pollos Hermanos

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.
