Have “The Walking Dead” fans become numb to all the atrocities? "'The Walking Dead' has always lived in uncharted television territory, and you can’t say that viewers weren’t warned that this season was determined to go even further beyond Thunderdome,” says Jeff Labrecque, adding: "But is it too far? And is 'The Walking Dead' getting a free pass because its explicit depictions of violence are framed within a zombiefied landscape?” “The Real World" Season 30 is going with a "Skeletons” format The Chicago-set "Real World: Skeletons" will feature "skeletons" from the housemates’ past, who move in to "drum up secrets and dark memories.” “Gossip Girl’s” Penn Badgley will romance Mary-Louise Parker on NBC’s “The Slap” He’ll play her much-younger boyfriend on the NBC miniseries about a slap gone wrong.

Here's something you might not know: Toys R Us sells Breaking Bad figurines of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. Here's something you might have predicted: parents aren't happy about the idea of their kids playing with figurines of bald, meth-dealing science teachers. One Florida mother is so outraged that her petition against Toys R Us stocking the toys, which feature Walter carrying a gun and a bag of meth, has made headlines this week. Though a quick search of the store's website reveals that they used to sell these items (you can totally see "6-inch Hazmat Suit Jesse Pinkman"), they don't seem to carry them anymore. In an amusing twist of events, Bryan Cranston entered the controversy by tweeting a response to the woman's complaint: "Florida mom petitions against Toys 'R Us over Breaking Bad action figures." I'm so mad, I'm burning my Florida Mom action figure in protest — Bryan Cranston »
Attention all angry mothers—the man has spoken. Or tweeted, rather. Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston has responded to at least one specific mom who has made it publicly known that she's against the idea of Toys 'R Us selling action figures based on the AMC series—and what he wrote will only make you love him that much more. "'Florida mom petitions against Toys 'R Us over Breaking Bad action figures.' I'm so mad, I'm burning my Florida Mom action figure in protest," he tweeted, Lol! Susan Schrivjer of Fort Myers, Fla. started a Change.org petition last week to get Toys 'R Us to remove Breaking Bad action figures from their shelves. The petition, »

Superheroes and villains may kill each other left and right onscreen, but some pop culture icons are just too violent for some parents, it seems. Toys R Us is in trouble with angry parents after someone figured out that they sell Breaking Bad action figures alongside more traditional fare from kid-friendly programming. Concerned mom Susan Schrivjer has launched a Change.org petition in order to get Toys R Us to take the toys off of their shelves, and it’s already attracted 3,000+ signatures out of the 5,000 it needs to uh, do something, I guess. I’m still not quite clear on what Change.org actually accomplishes, other than throwing heat on companies in question. Even though Schrivjer likes the show, she says it isn’t appropriate for the toy retailer to be selling toys to the Ma rated TV show, even if they are in fact labeled “for ages 15 plus, »

Bryan Cranston has broken his silence and responded to the Florida mom who started a petition against Toys "R" Us for selling Breaking Bad action figures. The actor, who portrayed meth manufacturer Walter White in the hit AMC series, took to Twitter on Monday, Oct. 20, and joked about the matter. "'Florida mom petitions against Toys 'R Us over Breaking Bad action figures.' I'm so mad, I'm burning my Florida Mom action figure in protest," he humorously tweeted.

Breaking Bad has been off the air for over a full year now, yet it lives on in our hearts for all eternity. Rarely a week goes by where I don’t wish that something, anything on TV was as good as Breaking Bad, but until Game of Thrones is back airing again, I think I’m going to be left disappointed. Over the years fans have done many, many things to pay tribute to the show, and one of the most prevalent was reworking the famed chemical intro into something a bit more involved. We’ve seen extended remixes, complete reworks and the show has even changed genre completely once or twice as a result of these fan edits. I’ve hunted through the internet to track down a few of my favorites, and though you might have caught a few of these already, I can almost guarantee there are some you’ve missed. »

For Breaking Bad fans, an action figure of Heisenberg carrying a gun might sound pretty cool. But when said action figure is sold on the same shelf as a Barbie at Toys "R" Us, well—odds are Skyler White wouldn't be too happy about it. Susan Myers, who started a petition on Change.org, is campaigning to get the Breaking Bad action figures removed from shelves. As Myers wrote, "Their decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children’s toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values. »

"Breaking Bad" doesn't exactly scream "kid-friendly," but does the AMC drug drama deserve its merch pulled from stores as a result? One Florida mother thinks so, and has started a Change.org petition to get Toys "R" Us to remove Walter White action figures from its shelves.
In the petition, Susan Myers from Fort Myers, Florida writes that the toy store chain's "decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children's toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values."
"Parents and grandparents around the world shop at Toys R Us, online and in stories, with their children and should not be forced to explain why a certain toy comes with a bag of highly dangerous and illegal drugs or why someone who sells those drugs deserves to be made into an action figure," the petition continued. »

Walter White figurine comes with tiny bag of crystal meth, as shocked and appalled Florida woman starts petition to get them removed from shelves
Youre probably already aware there are only 65 shopping days until Christmas. If youre a parent, this means youre frantically fretting about what the must-have toy of winter 2014 will be, but stop looking right now. A woman called Susan Schrivjer, from Florida, has discovered that Us branches of Toy R Us are stocking a highly desirable range of Breaking Bad action figures.
The Walter White figurine comes packaged with a duffle bag filled with presumably pre-laundered non-sequential banknotes and a tiny bag of (fake) crystal meth, while the Jesse Pinkman figure sports a gas mask, teaching children an important lesson about the dangers of inhaling the noxious byproducts of the methamphetamine production process.

As a not-so-wise man once put it, “The answers to life’s problems aren’t at the bottom of a bottle, they’re on TV.”
It’s a good time to be a TV fan, as evidenced by the host of new, high quality shows that grace our screens each year and throw their hats into the ring for the right to be included among those hallowed names that always come up when the best television shows of all time are being discussed.
The likes of The Sopranos, The Wire, Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad – among many other fine offerings from recent TV schedules and decades past – deserve to be part of this conversation, but for many seasoned couch dwellers the final word will always belong to The Simpsons.
Regardless of the notable dip in quality since the show’s remarkable heyday, it is beyond dispute that The »

If anyone has noticed a different attitude from Syfy over the past year, it's probably Bill McGoldrick they would have to thank. McGoldrick, who took over the original content duties from Mark Stern last year, knows that the face of television has changed with the likes of "Game of Thrones" on HBO, "Breaking Bad" on AMC and "Fargo" on FX. And because television is changing and evolving, so is Syfy. "This year and next year is going to be Syfy at its finest," cable channel president Dave Howe told reporters at Monday's Syfy Digital Press Tour in Orlando. "We have big, bold ambitious scripted series at the level of 'Battlestar Galactica' and the miniseries events, and the plethora of announcements that have been going on the last six months thanks to Bill and his team has been incredible."

Sneak Peek more from director Tim Burton's new dramatic feature "Big Eyes" based on the life of illustrator Walter Keane, an artist noted in the 1950's and 1960's for his 'kitsch' paintings of large-eyed waifs.
"...'Walter Keane' (Waltz) became a national celebrity and talk show fixture in the 1950's after he pioneered the mass production of prints of big-eyed kids, using his marketing savvy to sell them cheaply in hardware stores and gas stations. Unfortunately, he claimed to be the artist. That role was played by Margaret (Amy Adams), his shy wife.
"She generated the paintings from their basement and Walter's contribution was adding his signature to the bottom. The ruse broke up their marriage, and when she tried to make it known that she authored the paintings, they ended up in a court battle..."

Toys "R" Us is under fire for selling "Breaking Bad" dolls inspired by the violent, drug-fueled AMC series. The critically-acclaimed show, which aired it series finale last year, revolved around Bryan Cranston’s chemistry teacher turned meth maker. And that's exactly what's available for sale in the children's toy store -- a figurine version of Walter White that comes complete with a fake gun, fake cash, and a backpack filled with fake crystal meth (see photo left). »

Godzilla is a movie that everyone has heard about, even if they have never seen it. There have been so many manifestations of Godzilla in cinema, from the original 1954 version, to his battles with Mothra, Mechagodzilla and Hedorah, to the terrible 1998 Roland Emmerich version, to this one, 2014’s Godzilla, directed by Monsters director Gareth Edwards.
I was excited about this film since first hearing about it last year, and have been following its progression over the past few months as casting and further details were announced. When the first trailer arrived on the scene a few months ago I was further intrigued, and by the time the film was released this week, I was thoroughly anticipating the re-emergence of one of cinemas most famous monsters. »
