In the wake of the Homeland Security sweep that nabbed Martun Sarkissian on a domestic terrorism rap, Briggs & Co. came to realize that the only loose end in selling the bust to Special Agent Logan was Ari, who knew exactly all that had transpired in recent weeks. »
Many may know Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman of "Better Call Saul" and "Breaking Bad" fame, but long before he got his big break with Vince Gilligan, the talented comedian was killing it on a little show called "Mr. Show with Bob and David" Alongside David Cross — who's had a few hits of his own in "Arrested Development" and "The Incredibly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret" — Odenkirk created four seasons worth of great sketches before getting the axe.

Quite unbelievably, this month marks the two-year anniversary of Breaking Bad’s series finale.
From modest beginnings, Vince Gilligan’s tale of one man’s rise from chemistry teacher to drug kingpin grew to become a phenomenon by the time it ended and brought to a close six years of superb storytelling, excellent performances, and wonderful cinematography. And despite other long-running shows around the same time ending with disappointment, that all came together to send the show riding off a wave of critical praise and into television history.
While the story of Walter White may be over, Gilligan ushered Better Call Saul into the world earlier this year for more stories out of Albuquerque, which smashed ratings records when it premiered and has picked up where its predecessor left off in earning critical praise and awards recognition. Simply put, Breaking Bad’s legacy will continue to be felt for years to come, »

It's been two Fridays since the last Ask Alan, so it's time once again for me to provide rapid-fire answers to your questions. I was able to squeeze four in this time out — covering a show that got renewed and then canceled, actors with multiple hits, an alternate reality where Vince Gilligan asks my advice for writing "Better Call Saul," and the wild improbability of anyone ever coming close to the "M*A*S*H" finale ratings — and hopefully I didn't talk too fast in the process. As always, you can send questions — the more concisely-worded, the better — to email@example.com. »

Before the critical and (belated) commercial success of Breaking Bad, its star, Bryan Cranston, was mostly known for his comedic roles on American sitcoms, playing the dad in Malcolm in the Middle and making a few appearances as Hammond Druthers on How I Met Your Mother.
Now, two years since Breaking Bad ended (*sob*), it’s not in question what role Cranston is known for. He is the one who knocks; the meth-cooking chemistry teacher; Walter White and Heisenberg. There’s no denying all that the show has done for him, as he has received four Emmy awards for his performance, becoming the first man since Bill Cosby in the 1960s to win three in a row. He’s also landed a string of roles that likely wouldn’t have went his way without the show, such as Argo, Godzilla, and the Broadway play All the Way, which is »

Fox’s revival of one of its biggest hits, The X-Files, has been one of the biggest stories in television this year. Premiering after the network’s broadcast of the NFL’s Nfc Championship game, millions of eyeballs will be glued to their TV sets, waiting to see if production company 1013 and stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny can recapture the magic (and chemistry) they had so many years ago.
2008’s I Want To Believe, the second feature film in the franchise, seems to have been forgotten. That’s probably not a bad thing – while not outright horrible (nothing with Billy Connolly ever is), it is more more or less an elongated X-Files episode to begin with. Somewhat underrated, but far from criminally so.
However, with the new season on its way – a revival, not a reboot or remake, just six new episodes – now is a great time to »

Recently the Discovery channel released a preview of the next episode Mythbusters. Adam and Jamie and Breaking Bad genius creator Vince Gilligan attempt to test the crazy stuff that Walter White pulled off in the finale. Here’s the thing though. Do you think it’s possible to even make the trunk gun that good ol’ Walter made? Given the time he had to not only think of it but to construct it? Is this even possible? Also how in the world are you able to trap a group of violent neo-Nazis like that? Seems a little nuts don’t you think? But Adam is going to test it. What we don’t know is if he can survive the next episode. One thing’s for certain. He’ll be wearing a brown hat. So make sure you tune into the Discovery Channel to find out if Walter White was »

Warning: If you haven't watched the end of Breaking Bad, don't read this. The entire post is concerned exclusively with its final moments. In the final episode of Vince Gilligan's Breaking Bad, Walter White allows himself to be captured by skinhead drug dealers in order to save Jesse Pinkman. But Walt has a plan: An M60 machine gun — the kind of heavy-duty monster of a machine gun that gets mounted on armored vehicles — is rigged to a rotating machine in the trunk of his car. It goes off, launching a torrent of bullets into the skinheads' hideout while Walt hits the floor, out of harm's way. The gun tears apart the bad guys while Walt survives. For a while. The show is widely considered one of the best ever, but the finale did earn some puzzled reactions. Not that Breaking Bad was ever a realistic show, but the machine-gun-in-the-car-trunk »

This story first appeared in a special Emmy issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan Creators/executive producers, Better Call Saul Biggest misconception about the show: Gould The original misconception -- or the conception we worried people would have -- was that the show was about Saul Goodman from Breaking Bad. Luckily, people accepted the show was about Jimmy McGill, who eventually becomes Saul Goodman. Gilligan Folks invariably tell me, "I really like Jimmy McGill, but I didn't really like Saul that much." Especially women. Jimmy seems to be catnip to them. Gould Go figure! Most challenging scene to write: Gould Toward

Things are looking up at Walt Disney Animation Studios - way up. Gigantic, Disney's unique take on Jack and the Beanstalk, will feature music from Oscar-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who greeted D23 Expo fans in signature style-in song-alongside director Nathan Greno (Tangled) and producer Dorothy McKim (Get a Horse). Set in Spain during the Age of Exploration, Disney's Gigantic follows adventure-seeker Jack as he discovers a world of giants hidden within the clouds. He hatches a grand plan with Inma, a 60-foot-tall, 11-year-old girl, and agrees to help her find her way home. But he doesn't account for her super-sized personality-and who knew giants were so down to earth?
We reported back in April that Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan sold a Beanstalk movie pitch to Disney. Breaking Bad writer-producer Thomas Schnauz was set to write the full screenplay, with Vince Gilligan eyeing the project as his feature directorial debut. »
Breaking Bad is quite rightly hailed as one of the most successful dramas of the twenty-first century. But in this age of multi-platform entertainment, could it have survived in another format? Say creator Vince Gilligan’s insistence on the casting of Bryan Cranston over preferred choices like John Cusack had led to the whole project being aborted. Would Gilligan have gotten his idea to live outside the confines of the small screen?
Absolutely not. The show has one of the all-time great concepts, but an unusual one in that it was perfectly suited to TV. Other great offerings of the age can easily transfer to different mediums. For example, House would make a good novel as well as an essential prescription for the cathode ray tube. True Detective had the stuff of an epic movie. The adventures of Walter White on the other hand could only have flown one »

The very first pilot I watched on this job was for a CBS drama called "Ez Streets." Created by Paul Haggis — then best known for creating "Due South," but most commercially successful for having helped develop the "Walker, Texas Ranger" pilot — it was essentially an HBO drama before such a thing existed: dark, dense, ambitious, heartbreaking, and addictive. It even featured Joe Pantoliano playing a sociopath gangster years before he won an Emmy for it on "The Sopranos" (and was, to my mind, better as Jimmy Murtha than as Ralphie Ciffaretto). It was also the first time I got my heart broken in this job. Despite rave reviews from me and my more established colleagues across the country, "Ez Streets" was Doa: CBS pulled it off the air after only two episodes had aired, and though most of the remaining episodes would air the following winter, it was just running out the string. »
