Each man sounds very different. Vince sounds exactly like he does in the podcasts: self-effacing, generous, and kind. I know Weiner egotism can be off-putting, but he admits to it, so I really don't mind.

LOVE that poster. Awesome awesome awesome.
I'll have to check out the Nerdist bowling game. I saw another one, and it was a lot of fun. And I'm going to read that Aaron Paul interview as soon as I get a few minutes.
I just finished watching a http://www.hollywood...g-dead-332460#4 '>showrunners roundtable that the Hollywood Reporter did. Vince Gilligan, Terrence Winter, Veena Sud, Shonda Rimes, the guy from The Walking Dead, and the guy from Homeland. Very well done. It's an hour long.

-Very slight spoilers in the rest of the article.
When AMC and "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan reached an agreement earlier this year to extend and eventually end the addictive drama with two eight-episode seasons, Gilligan told Cranston that he "couldn't imagine having enough story to fill 16 more episodes."...
"Vince feels that now we have too much story," Cranston says, laughing. "We could actually go beyond those 16 episodes."...
The article is titled, "A 'Breaking Bad' movie? Bryan Cranston doesn't rule it out," but there is no actual quote referring to a movie.

Once MM and BB are over, what do they have besides Walking Dead? They're struggling to stay on various systems.
If Gill is offering them more episodes, AMC may not have better options than stretching the series out.

In the June 26th issue of Mad Magazine there is a section on Breaking Bad called "Fading Bad". Very cool!

I'm curious now if they could end up going past the sixteen episodes. Didn't AMC want the final season to just be eight episodes? So if there's really more story to tell I'm wondering if they couldn't get another short order of episodes.
AMC approved a sixteen episode final season (up for the normal 13) which it is splitting in two. When AMC made their 8 episode request, there was suspicion that it was just a negotiating ploy on AMC's part and sure enough, that's likely what it was. Given that the two halves of the season will air a year apart, most people will refer to it as two seasons but contractually AMC is pretty firmly referring to it as one season. It's likely there are contract escalations that go into effect if there is a sixth season. I don't know if the contracts signed allow for AMC to order a few more episodes should the ratings for the half of the season be exceptionally strong but I doubt it'll happen. Or if it does, it may be something like giving Gilligan a two hour finale instead of a one hour finale.
Beyond that, I doubt the actors will be available. Aaron Paul is already rumored to be in negotiations for a new HBO series.
As for a movie, I don't want that. The last thing I want is to see this series, which has all the time in the world to craft a satisfactory ending, stop short in order to leave open the possibility of a movie.
Betsy Brandt teased a little about the upcoming season of Breaking Bad when she attended a movie premiere. I wouldn't consider it very spoilery since all she does is confirm that the show will continue a story thread that it has been following since the 1st/2nd season but you may not want to read if you want absolutely zero knowledge.

Although, there does seem to be an additional bit of bad blood between Dish and AMC mentioned in that article, so this one may go on for a little while longer than usual.
AT&T U-verse and AMC are not looking so hot either:
Meanwhile, AMC continues to negotiate with AT&T U-verse ahead of the expiration of the parties' contract at 11;59 p.m. (ET) on June 30 for carriage of AMC, IFC and WeTV. The telco said the programmer is seeking an "excessive rate increase."
It's just too bad this has all worked out to be right before the Breaking Bad premiere. I guess they've got a couple weeks to fight and then hopefully the channels will be back by the 15th.

I agree that it was incredible work. I also think that he has better submission episodes, though.
Aaron rocked ‘Problem Dog.’ Crew & extras applauded after the recovery meeting scene. Truly incredible.
