Even two weeks later, the 'Breaking Bad' finale continues to resonate with fans and build a legacy for creator Vince Gilligan as one of the more visionary TV creators of our time. Gilligan's work is far from over, however, as a lengthy new profile with the 'Breaking Bad' showrunner reveals the true secrets behind Walter White's final stand, and offers revealing new insight into the proposed 'Better Call Saul' prequel spinoff.
The 'Breaking Bad' series finale still has us all talking, but what are our words against the mighty voice of Odin, when Anthony Hopkins himself binge watches the entire series in two weeks and writes a letter to Bryan Cranston expressing his fanboy adoration? Sit these two down for some liver, beans and chianti, with a nice crystal blue chaser, stat!
Like 'Fargo' herself, casting for FX's forthcoming adaptation of the 1996 Coen brothers classic has been a bit slow-moving, at least until today. The cable network opened the floodgates on its 'Fargo' TV series, revealing new parts to play from 'Breaking Bad' and 'Better Call Saul' star Bob Odenkirk, 'Private Practice''s Kate Walsh, 'Always Sunny''s Glenn Howerton, Adam Goldberg and more!
We've heard some pretty insane responses and theories emerge from the 'Breaking Bad' series finale, "Felina," but the latest would make even Walter White blush. Dreamworks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg reportedly offered AMC the gargantuan sum of $75 million, just short of Walter White's life's work, to commission three additional 'Breaking Bad' episodes to take place after the finale.
Finales always tend toward the polarizing, but most would agree that the 'Breaking Bad' ultimate end "Felina" at least wrapped up the story of Walter White in a conclusive manner (whether or not you believe it to have happened in real life, or inside Walter's head). That said, two high-profile pop culture icons have spoken out against the 'Breaking Bad' series finale, and while we'd be hard pressed to link acclaimed director Oliver Stone and Britney Spears, their bizarre criticisms certainly merit mention.
Our 'Breaking Bad' withdrawal has reached an all-time high following this past Sunday's series finale "Felina," one we had thought even the upcoming Spanish-language remake 'Metastasis' couldn't satiate. Imagine our surprise however, that the first trailer for Walter Blanco's turn to the dark side of chemistry actually looks pretty good, bitch!
AMC recently played quite a hand in extending its relevance post-'Breaking Bad,' first greenlighting prequel spinoff 'Better Call Saul,' followed by a 'Walking Dead' companion series for 2015 and a 'Mad Men' final-season split, but now its newest cards are on the table. Revolutionary war drama 'Turn' and computer-development piece 'Halt & Catch Fire' have released their first photos, so how does AMC's future look?
'Breaking Bad' has finally cooked up its last batch of episodes (discounting the spinoff), and while many continue to argue about the purity of Walter White's last stand, most agree the Emmy-winning AMC drama stuck the landing better than most. We'd previously heard creator Vince Gilligan discuss several alternate endings as well, but it seems the writers also had in mind multiple trajectories for Walt's big gun, including a prison break for Jesse, and other endings that saw either Skyler or Walter Jr. bite the bullet!
And so, it has come to pass that 'Breaking Bad' aired its series finale "Felina," putting a conclusive cap on the tale of Walter White that wrapped things up in a surprisingly clean manner. Given the chaotic nature of the series however, creator Vince Gilligan, as well as stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul had plenty to say about the roads not traveled by the 'Breaking Bad' series finale, as well as insight into unexplained character moments, inspirations, and the likely futures of those left standing.
‘Breaking Bad’ season 5 cooks up its eighth and final episode of the season and series, “Felina,” as Walter returns to New Mexico to make things right with Skyler, Jesse, Elliott and Gretchen Schwartz, Lydia, Todd, Jack and his men, before finally ending the journey where it all began.
Last week’s ‘Breaking Bad’ episode, “Granite State,” saw Walter settling into his new isolated existence in New Hampshire, while Jesse’s desperate attempts to escape captivity had deadly consequences for Brock and Andrea, so how does “Felina” finally close out the series? Now that Walter has made his final stand, how does it all end for ‘Breaking Bad’?
