Default 'Breaking Bad': The 5th and Final Season on AMC



Just a reminder: the first of the final 16 episodes of "Breaking Bad" premieres tonight on AMC.

Unlike previous seasons, the network and Vince Gilligan have decided to split the fifth and final season in half--with 8 episodes (season 5.0) airing this summer, and the series returning for its final 8 (season 5.5) in 2013.

I saw the premiere last night at Comic Con. Well, in a theatre in the Gaslamp, but with a Con crowd: including the cast (Cranston is as cool as you'd expect in real life) and crew and some select fans. Simply awesome. If the first episode is any indication, these last 16 episodes are gonna be... well, awesome.

I love Breaking Bad and last night's premiere was pretty damn good. I hate this damn split season crap though, who the hell started doing this? Was it Season 6 of the Sopranos who started splitting up seasons?

I think it has something to do with negotiations between producers and networks. A package deal for one season split in two is cheaper for the network compared to negotiating two separate deals for two seasons.

Best show on television. Each episode this season has gotten better and better.


I've seen LOST, Six Feet Under, Deadwood, Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, The Office UK, Dexter, etc.. etc.. and this is the best show I've ever seen, bar none.

Yup, I think it's been the best season so far. I wish they hadn't shown that opening scene in the first episode of this season though.
