We need Breaking Bad. In the absence of actual new Breaking Bad episodes, which seem very, very unlikely, we were willing to satisfy ourselves with Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad spinoff that we just learned has been delayed for about six months, BUT also picked up for two seasons.
So that’s for the future. WHAT ABOUT NOW?
Well, now AMC, realizing that we need something to get us through, and they’re plum out of Better Call Saul casting announcements, has gone ahead with a Breaking Bad marathon that will start on August 10th, then air marathon episodes on Sundays until the finale in October. The marathon will also be sprinkled with interviews and behind-the-scenes stuff that Netflix won’t give you.
Aside from that “bonus” this is very little that you can’t get from Netflix at literally any time.
