re: Breaking Bad Thread (NO SPOILERS OUTSIDE OF THIS THREAD. INCLUDING SIGS & CHATBOX.)
Well, I enjoyed the first two episodes, intriguing is the best word at this stage.
I seen that season 5 as a whole, which critics would have seen - as a whole - has a rating of 98/100 on Metacritic, out of 21 reviews by critics. Haha, season 4 has 96/100, it's crazy haha.
And I seen this about the future of Breaking Bad:
I'm all for more, I just hope they don't overkill it. Which I don't think they will no matter what they do, the team of people behind it seem to good to let the show/fans down at all.
"Bryan Cranston has hinted that the series may continue after the season 5 finale, stating "Vince (Gilligan) feels that now we have too much story. We could actually go beyond those 16 episodes. It's not far-fetched. I wouldn't mind visiting that possibility. And this is coming from a guy who doesn't know anything of how the show's going to end. If it doesn't end up in a total apocalypse, who knows? Maybe we could revisit Walter White a year down the road and see where his life has gone. If he's still alive, that is."
"At Comic-Con 2012, Gilligan addressed the possibility, saying: "I love the idea of it [...] But I have to say that my writers and I intend to tell every bit of story we can tell in this final sixteen. So, at this moment in time, I would say that the odds are a bit remote. If we were [to] – a year or two down the line – think of something else [...], who knows? Your guess is as good as mine at this point."
"He later clarified in a interview on July 18, 2012, that he has no plans for a film, and that Cranston's remarks are the only thing fueling the speculation."
"But Gilligan has also hinted at a possible spin-off series focusing on lawyer character Saul Goodman."
"Cast member Betsy Brandt told TODAY.com that, "[t]here is a big director that would like to direct the last episode as a movie and put it in theaters."
