Premise of 'Breaking Bad'

Mild-mannered high school chemistry teacher Walter White thinks his life can't get much worse. His salary barely makes ends meet, a situation not likely to improve once his pregnant wife gives birth, and their teenage son is battling cerebral palsy. But Walter is dumbstruck when he learns he has terminal cancer. Realizing that his illness probably will ruin his family financially, Walter makes a desperate bid to earn as much money as he can in the time he has left by turning an old RV into a meth lab on wheels.

Cast of 'Breaking Bad'
* Betsy Brandt as Marie
* Bryan Cranston as Walter White
* Anna Gunn as Skylar White
* R.J. Mitte as Walter White Jr.
* Dean Norris as Hank
* Aaron Paul as Jesse Dupree

Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1; Subtitles: French. **7 episodes on 2 discs. 5 3/4 hrs. Special pre-order price: $25.50 (I don't know how long this price will last.)

Bryan Cranston led members of the cast and crew from "Breaking Bad" through a round of Q&A at a recent AMC press event.

Sporting a head of hair that was absent during his best dramatic actor acceptance speech at September's Emmys - Cranston shaved his head for the season three shoot - the thesp rehashed the experience of winning his first Emmy for "Bad" after being nommed three times before for his prior series, the Fox comedy "Malcolm in the Middle."

"I was pretty comfortable with not winning, and I was prepared not to win," Cranston said. "And the first millisecond of that went by after they called my name, I thought, That sounds familiar. Then I realized, Oh my god, that's me."

Morty,

AMC had a Season 1 marathon and I was able to TiVo it. Thank you for recommendation. I think it's even better than weeds. There was only 7 episodes (seems a bit short??) Looked up AMC's site and saw that I had seen all of season 1 so, I'm really looking forward to watching this seasons premiere tonight.

P.S. Walter is so much better looking without all the dorky "dad" hair. animated_rotfl.gif

I missed the week before last and for some reason my TiVo didn't record it but, each eppy seems to get better and better. Skylar annoys me for some reason... just thought I'd throw that out there. animated_rotfl.gif

Wait, you didn't see the episode with the two stoners and the ATM? Might have been the best episode. If you haven't seen it, let me know and I'll arrange for you to get a copy. It's too good to miss. It made me yell at the TV several times, and I don't even do that during sports.

Say it out loud, 'I am a blow fish."

I was wondering how the ATM came to be... animated_scratchchin.gif But, I did see this last one with the little boy and his parents (stoners) trying to break into it (which made me roll my eyes constantly and mumbling "What idiots!" laugh.gif ) to get Jesse's his money back (however it went missing, I don't know)

Oh and I'm really digging the actor that plays Jesse'... I love seeing "new" talent.

Wow, great season, only two more episodes to go. And Two more chances to win a free hoodie from AMC.

Win a Breaking Bad Hoodie


Want to dress like Jesse (or at least come close)? Here's your chance to be the proud owner of a Breaking Bad zip-up hoodie. Tell us: Who do you think will die next?

We'll randomly pick a winner from the comments below and award a sweatshirt.

We're giving away a hoodie every week, so be sure to check the Breaking Bad blog for this week's winner and next week's question.

Look after the jump to see last week's winner.

Question: How would you interpret Walt's reaction to his son vomiting in the pool?

Winner: David_inAustin: "Walt is channeling the same demons that Tuco had taken to the grave. One top dog has replaced another, and the 'rush' of breaking bad has taken on a new form in a once quiet and generous chemistry teacher."


Win a Breaking Bad Hoodie
Answer this question: Who do you think will die next?

Aaron Paul: Emmy breakout?

Although Gold Derby predicted it would happen, the upset Bryan Cranston pulled off for best drama actor was considered to be one of the biggest jaw-droppers in recent Emmy history. Aaron PaulBreaking Bad. Now Emmy-watchers wonder: Can his Breaking Bad costar Aaron Paul pull off a nomination for his gritty portrayal of a fearless crystal meth dealer who sometimes wages his toughest fights against himself?

According to the L.A. Times Showtracker blog: "Aaron Paul has been superb this season, bringing a vulnerability to Jesse's character that makes his dark descent all the more tragic. Watching him tie that chord around his arm was so, so painful, because as an audience we've come to feel so protective of the guy, have we not? Though I have to say that the visual of his heroin high -- Jesse floating up from his bed -- was one of the coolest images we’ve seen."

Meantime, Aaron Paul has also given a standout performance this TV season as the squeaky clean, upright Scott on Big Love. Below, we chat about all that via webcam.

A press release from AMC has confirmed that filming for there multi-award winning series Breaking Bad has begun. The cast and crew assembled in Albuquerque, New Mexico on January 13 to begin capturing the thirteen episode season. With such a cliffhanger ending to season 3, scripts are being kept top secret and will only be handed out as each episode being shot. Hopefully we will have some more news about production on this highly anticipated season in the coming weeks.
