    One of the best television shows in history will sadly come to an end this summer as Breaking Bad wraps up its final season on AMC. The network has released a new featurette for the last batch of 8 episodes that takes fans behind-the-scenes of the show, and itís a total tease. The video doesnít reveal anything at all about the final run of episodes (which is a good thing), but we do see the castmembers talking quite cryptically about whatís to come. The fifth season was split up into two batches of eight episodes, so I assume this upcoming run plays like the final half of one season rather than an entire new season.

    Though we donít know much plot-wise about the final episodes, we do know that Bryan Cranston directs the first episode back, Looper director Rian Johnson thankfully returns to helm another installment, and creator/showrunner Vince Gilligan wrote and directs the series finale. Hit the jump to watch the featurette. Breaking Bad is expected to return sometime in July, so hold on to your butts, folks.

    So the Walking Dead - great tension level tonight. Good episode - Rick has to know the Gov is lying. I liked that the LT's for each crew got to know each other. The story has gone well the last few weeks but I am finding the show is so devoid of hope - not surprising in a new world the show describes - that I am not sure I can continue to watch.

    Sorry to get all serious here but man the story is so hopeless to me.

    I think it's all in the way you process it. To me, I saw a lot of hope in the interactions between the members of the camps. Normal people, who in better times, would be comrades. But their leaders comparing dick sizes lead them from the path(sound familiar????). The Governor will sacrifice every living member of Woodbury to get his revenge, and Rick is hardly better. He knows the Governor is not to be trusted, yet he is contemplating selling out Michonne. Meanwhile...Glen & Maggie found a little love among the ruins...so there is your hope in a hopeless world. Yeah, it's a grim worldview. But that's life as they know it when the life expectancy is 'wow, I'm still alive!!!!'

    I think there is more hope to be found in Glen and Maggie than there is with Rick. That picture up there with the original group and half of them crossed out is impressive, but you also get the sense that the creators are going to kill people just to keep it up and someone has to fall in the fight with the governor - Herschel? His daughter? The state of Rick's pal from the very first episode in last week's episode may have been the most hopeless thing. Really, these people need to secure a good base (check) and then start killing EVERY zombie (or wait for them to keep wandering up to the prison). Kill enough zombies, make a larger functional civilized base. Bring in more humans, train them, buddy up to put down anyone who dies and turns. Kill more zombies. Repeat.

    I agree that the huge degree of tension between Rick and the governor and the interaction between Daryl and the other guy were the highlights. You'd think Merle would at least be able to identify the option of not being an asshat for once.

    I thought Seppinwall went all Matthew Berry a few weeks back and said he was done with this show??

    I thought the episode was....ok......at best. Yes, some of the dialog was nice, but dear lord, when Rick declared at the end of the episode "we're going to war" - no ****, really, Rick?? Didn't you say that, like, 4 weeks ago? As for Andrea, dear ****ing lord baby christ and all that's holy....If you asked her "How are you doing today, Andrea?", you'd get 5 anguished facial expressions, 3 different answers, and then she'd turn and walk away all flustered at your question.

    Now I've read the comics so far up to #85 and counting, and I DO still love the show, but dear lord, there's more padding than a wonder bra in this damn show. That's one of the reasons I'd heard that Mazzara got canned is the lack of material for the scripts for season 3. And for a quality comparison on how to make something blatantly obvious that's going to happen over the course of a full season of television, just look at season 4 of Breaking Bad. Everyone knew that Walt and Gus were on a collision course, and it took all season to get there. But the amazing world that Vince Gilligan created for Breaking Bad allowed for so much to go on during the slow burn to the finale of season 4, that it never felt drawn out or unnaturally stretched for a plot. Of course, it really isn't fair to compare the writing and execution of the story of The Walking Deal to Breaking Bad, but that's just at least a smidgen of a speck of an example of what it appears that Mazzara tried to do in Season 3 viz a vie Rick and The Governor.

    Now, if the final episodes of the season deliver the goods, some of this slow-as-molasses plot development and character flaws might be, well, not forgiven, but at least accepted in the end.

    Well yeah...it's all gonna be build up to the eventual showdown at this point, and yeah...it is inexcusable. The Zombie Delivery attack was the height of the season, and since then it's been pretty flaccid. They just don't seem to know how to maintain pacing very well on this show. The 2 episodes leading to the break...same thing. Great drama and momentum...then pfffffft. They just keep letting up on the gas pedal and that makes you look at the seams and faults of the show. Hell, the farm was the same last year. It's like watching a basketball game...come back the last 2 minutes , the rest of it is inconsequential.

    I just have a bad feeling that the season finale is not going to actually resolve this.

    Keep reading that it will have a good deal of closure and set season 4 up. I wonder if they pull the trigger on killing the Governor, or maybe have him in exile...lingering. The one thing they have always done well is finish, so that anticipation overwhelms disappointment. So, I'm not too worried.
