Breaking Bad

Designed and built in the 1960s by a Canadian ballistics engineering genius named Gerald Bull, the massive artillery piece today sits rusting amid encroaching foliage, on the island's southeast corner, just down a hill from the end of an airport runway.
Two Canadian dramas are aiming to bring a bit of cable edge to mainstream networks. "Pure" is a crime-drama whose premise might sound like a joke: The Mennonite Mob! While "Mary Kills People" is about a doctor who has an illegal side-line helping people commit suicide.
When I first heard the news that AMC was creating a "Breaking Bad" prequel, I couldn't conceive of a worse idea. How could you take the monumental "Breaking Bad," strip the storyline of iconic characters Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, and somehow craft something worthy of an entire series?
We're getting close to the premiere of "Breaking Bad" prequel "Better Call Saul." Here’s a first look at Canadian actor Michael
The next time you love talking to a digital marketer will probably be the first time you love talking to a digital marketer. They blabber more than Steve Urkel and act less than Mark Hamill after Star Wars. These are the idiotic things digital marketers say that drive the rest of the working world crazy.
I'm not buying the "if you don't like it, don't buy it" argument. Images have an impact whether or not you allow them into your home. The more we normalize corseted costumes and Daisy Dukes, the more our girls will be attracted to them. I can tell my daughter that the "firefighter goes to the fetish club" costume is inappropriate, but when she sees a happy girl her age on the packaging, she's getting mixed messages.
Just when you thought "Breaking Bad" couldn't get any cooler, psychedelic British artist Ralph Steadman has added his trademark
The creators and stars of "Breaking Bad" made a triumphant final appearance together onstage at the Emmys Monday night after
The Emmys aren't given much credence these days, and are often derided as the cheaper, less reliable cousin of the Golden Globes. But let's be honest here: if any awards show is going to represent the opinions of the mainstream TV audience, the Emmys are probably the ceremony to do it.
It's almost the time of year when we celebrate the best and brightest of the 2013-14 television season. Mindy Kaling and
2014-02-12-its_all_geek_to_me.png Outside of the fact that every celebrated psycho-thriller of the past couple of decades had the same plot twist, there's a bigger problem at play here. There are so many ways to describe something you like, and the central plot twist should never be your opening statement. You're trying to express yourself (that's good!), but you're spoiling the hell out of whatever you describe (that's bad).
Basically the cord cutting decision comes down to how much you value brand new content or the social component of watching and discussing that new content with friends. The last episode of Breaking Bad was admittedly the big media event of last year. I'm patient. I'll keep the cash and wait.
A few weeks ago, American commentator Mike Gallay at Huffingpost listed the five greatest series in TV history as Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Wire, The Sopranos, and Twin Peaks. So, um, the greatest shows ever are largely about men, mainly crime dramas, and mostly aired in the last decade?
2013-10-11-fakingbad.jpgWe get aggressively upset by people who haven't seen/heard/read the things we have. At a certain point, I got tired of bringing group conversations to a halt because I had only seen the first season of Mad Men. The lies started small.
Last Sunday, I spent Jesus's apparent day -- for the first time in nine weeks -- without Breaking Bad. Without Walter White or any of his tics, tendencies, or tacky style. Unlike most who watched Bad, I liked Walter White all the way. I liked him at the beginning, I liked him at the end, and I liked him at his worst.
Healthcare in Canada is anything but free. The average Canadian family of two parents with two children (similar to Walt's family in the drama) pays approximately $11,320 in taxes for hospital and physician care through the country's tax system, in addition to the cost of private insurance for things like dental care and outpatient prescription drugs.
If you think about many of your favourite American series, you'll realize how much the sense of place seeps into the story (U.S. series often put a place name in the opening credits montage). From Breaking Bad's premise arising out of the American health care system to True Blood with its southern drawls and back woods voodoo.
What better place to say goodbye to one of the best TV shows in recent memory than in the Hollywood Forever Cinespia cemetery in Los Angeles? (Well, OK, I concede it may have been a better fit in the deserts of New Mexico, but realistically that couldn't have worked.)
Whether you liked the ending or not, season eight's finale of 'Breaking Bad' will be talked about for the days to come. And
Warning: If you haven't watched the Breaking Bad finale and are spoiler-averse, you should probably stop reading now. You've
