    AMC Orders Pilots From ‘Nikita’ & ‘Breaking Bad’ Producers


    “Halt & Catch Fire” comes from “Breaking Bad” executive producer Mark Johnson. The potential series would take place during the ‘80s as the personal computer movement swept the country. The story will reportedly be told through the perspective of “a visionary, an engineer and a prodigy whose innovations directly confront the corporate behemoths of the time.”

    “Nikita” executive producer Craig Silverstein and Barry Josephson are behind “Turn,” a period drama set during 1778 and it is based upon Alexander Rose’s novel, “Washington’s Spies.” “Turn” will follow Abe Woodhull, a farmer in New York who brings together a group of his childhood friends to become an unlikely team of spies against the British during the War for Independance.

    As for AMC’s other shows, the fate of “Hell on Wheels” is up in the air until a new showrunner is chosen and the network is said to be negotiating with Netflix about co-producing a third season of “The Killing.”

    No thoughts on The Walking Dead?

    I definitely was not expecting Daryl and Merle to end up where they did.

    Michonne stabbing the Governor in the eye & putting her sword through his daughters head was awesome.

    Why does it seem like when a new black dude is introduced the current one has to die?

    Carl is becoming a stone cold bad ass

    I'm gonna be PISSED if Daryl is killed off.

    It, like Boardwalk Empire, was kind of a letdown from the buildup of the couple episodes leading in. Like Tyreese, but that was a cup'o'coffee...didn't really get much time. I felt really bad for Oscar. He was a good guy and a great addition, even had some personality with the slippers scene from last episode. Seems kind of disturbing that the group cannot have 2 black men at the same time. Oscar comes along...T-Dog is zombie chow. Tyreese enters, Oscar exits. I know it's not intentional but still.

    As far as Darryl and Merle...BOO. They screwed the pooch on that one if you ask me. The thing we were all looking forward to was the division between loyalty and family. Now, they have pretty much set it up as Merle will most likely sacrifice himself to save his little brother. Not a huge fail...but a misstep nonetheless.

    So...the Gov gets his eyepatch in the best scene of the night. That was almost unwatchable as he was hugging the twice dead corpse of Penny...WITH A JAGGED SHARD OF GLASS STICKING OUT OF HIS EYE!!!!!. Ugh. Eye violence!!!! All in all not really the cliffhanger I think we were all expecting. Not a disappointment, just kind of a letdown after the last 2(especially last weeks which I rewatched, and that scene where Carol almost wordlessly gets the update on all the things she missed was so freaking good. Just great work).

    Walking Dead's Kirkman explains shocking mid-season cliffhanger | Blastr

    Kirkman joked to The Hollywood Reporter that they might just use the same trick from the season-three premiere and jump ahead a few months and let fans figure it out along the way:

    "You mean jump ahead like two months to after Daryl is already dead and have him dealing with the fact that he was killed by Merle in front of all those people, and just kind of see what the aftermath of all that is? Well I don't know, it's possible (laughs)"

    ...It certainly seems like an inescapable situation, right? There are people all around them; they're facing each other; the Governor is calling for their death. I'm really happy that we're ending the midseason finale with that. It's going to be very difficult for viewers to stop biting their nails over the course of Christmas and New Year's leading to what's coming back in February but we wanted Daryl and Merle to interact and to see what their relationship is. This is the most intense, interesting way to go about that."

    Mazzara said they'll address the aftermath of the cliffhanger quickly once the show resumes Feb. 10, 2013, and seemed to be hinting that they may survive (but, this being The Walking Dead, who knows?):
    "People will come back and be very satisfied. They're going to get answers to their questions. We've done the time jump and it's a lot to leave people with such a big cliffhanger for the season, so I'll say it'll certainly be worth the wait and people will be right back into things when we come back in February...

    The question is not only can they make it out alive but then where do they go? What happens when Merle and Daryl are reunited and where do they go? How can Merle ever try to fit in at the prison? What is the pressure he would put on Daryl? So there's a lot of interesting story to be told."

    It really looked like they were setting it up for the Governor to have Darryl and Merle fight to the death, but that's something for an 80's action cartoon - a tad too hokey for AMC.

    I have to admire how their willingness to kill relatively important characters made the escape very tense. I was worried Maggie was going to take a bullet every time they showed her.

    I guess Oscar really would have survived longer if he had sided with his fellow former prisoner.

    Michonne vs. the Governor was awesomely brutal, especially the glass, even if I saw it coming. Doesn't Michonne know to stab for the throat, though?

    what's with the revolving door of black actors? I don't understand why they can't have more than one black guy at a time. Oscar was awesome.

    Glenn gets more badass every episode. I wish I had a fraction of his resourcefulness. the bone shiv was awesome.

    I used to hate Carl (like everyone else), but he turned into a bad mother****er and I love it.

    I'm really not a fan of the cliffhanger with Merle and Daryl either. that's not how I wanted them to be reunited AT ALL. from the preview, you can pretty much tell Daryl escapes, but I can't even imagine what the backlash would be like if anything happened to him.

    Michonne vs. the Governor was fantastic and disgusting. The Gov holding Penny's body and wailing with a shard of glass in his eye was just especially icky and awesome. Andrea and her somehow never-ending supply of bobby pins are killing me. I'd love to see her redeem herself a bit by doing something to save Daryl.

    either way, I'm really, really excited for the rest of this season. it's been fantastic so far.
