Screen Junkies Show: The Idiot's Guide To 'Breaking Bad'

A quick re-up before Sunday's premiere. Breaking Bad is entering its final leg, so we thought we'd give a chemistry crash course on what Walter White, Jesse Pinkman, and the rest of the crew have been up to! For the most part, they've been using chemicals to get rich, kill people, melt bodies, and make a damn fine cup of coffee. I bet you wish you paid closer attention in high school.

'Breaking Bad' Featurette Will Remind You Why You Love 'Breaking Bad'

It's almost here! It's almost here! AMC just released a fun little featurette that manages to have somehow raise my anticipation for Breaking Bad season 4 without divulging a single plot point. The various characters discuss the themes of the season, which seem to simply be amplifications of the themes of every season: Jesse's in a dark, sad place; Walt becomes almost 100% criminal, Skyler develops a taste for the lifestyle. Essentially, all this featurette really does is remind us of two things: all the different trajectories that were established over the first 3 seasons, and how well Breaking Bad tells those stories. It doesn't take much to get fans of the show excited for the new season. How do I know? Because these featurette gives us virtually nothing but a great reminder, and I'm excited.


Honest Trailers: 'Breaking Bad'

Oh yes. We went there. This trailer required a lot of honesty, because Breaking Bad isn't delivered in a nice little 90-minute package like most of the fanboy movies we send up. Consequently, we've got almost a five-minute runtime for this little number, but it's impossible to overdo the analysis for Breaking Bad (no it isn't), so runtime isn't really a factor. Anyway, our glass-is-half-empty outlook really pays off in spades when we need to get REALLY critical of the best show in the history of the medium (arguably). But we can all agree that some breasts wouldn't hurt the show. We can agree on that, right?


Get Up To Speed With Extended 'Breaking Bad' Trailer

Walt gets dangerous in this extended look at the new season. Our editor has been rubbing it in our handsome faces that he's got his hands on advanced screeners of the new season of Breaking Bad which he has no intention of sharing with us. That's why Penn and I have been discussing going at him Cartel style. But our suits are at the cleaners. Oh well. Guess we'll just have to watch this extended Breaking Bad trailer until the fourth season premieres July 17th on AMC.


The Alternate Ending To Last Week's 'Breaking Bad'

I like how this purports to be the director's cut. This entire series is one big "director's cut." Here be spoilers, so if you aren't current on Breaking Bad (and what the hell is wrong with you if you're not?), this gives away a pretty important (though we don't know how) plot point. Setting these clips up is always a recipe for disaster. If you have seen the episode, you know the context. And if you haven't, don't watch the damn clip. The beauty of this gag (and the scene in general) is the surprise, which I don't want to ruin, so I'm just going to keep typing things until I hit my word count and can get paid for this article. Jamboree. Hilltop. Wainscoting. Haberdasher. Filament. Filibuster. Contemplate. Willful. Gerrymander. Ok. That was a hundred words with "Gerrymander," so everything you're reading here is a super-secret Screen Junkies Easter egg bonus. We spoil you.


Meet Walter Blanco, The Star Of Spanish 'Breaking Bad' Remake, 'Metastasis'

We swear this is real. Did you enjoy Breaking Bad but found that it was a little too well-produced and not Spanish? Well then, hombre, you just scored. Metastasis stars Walter Blanco, a high school chemistry teacher driven to crime after he's diagnosed with Spanish cancer. It's everything you loved about Breaking Bad if it were filmed for a dollar. I can't wait to see how they handle the mid-air collision. It stands to reason that their version of Episode 310 "The Fly" will be called "The Spanish Fly."


Your Jones Is Almost Over; ‘Breaking Bad’ Returns July 17th

This show is so good. I get the shakes when it is not on the air. [post-album postid="26179" item="1"] Summer is upon us, which means that good shows are returning. For instance, breaking-bad-wont-return-until-july-2011/" target="_blank""Breaking Bad" is finally back from break to blow all our minds once again. Last time we saw Walt and Jesse, one had a gun to his head and the other a gun in his hand. After hanging off the cliff for nearly a year, the show we've all been fiending for will return to AMC on July 17th. Check out the trailer AMC put together for season four. Though it doesn't give away any of the upcoming plotlines, it does remind us just how badass this show truly is, and all that meth really puts me in the mood for some rock candy. (Deadline)
