This Sunday begins the first half of the final 16 episodes of AMC's Breaking Bad, a series we're only slightly obsessed with. Before we dive into eight new no-doubt mind-blowing episodes of one of the best shows on television, it's important to go into the season remembering that there's lots of ground to cover before Breaking Bad ends, not to mention the fact that Season 4's finale left us with a handful burning questions.
In case my enormous best moments photo gallery didn't tip you off, I'm a bit of a Breaking Bad aficionado -- and by the looks of it, many of you are, too. Vincent Gilligan, creator and producer, is aware of his series' fan base and enjoys talking about how nail-biting and marvelous it is just as much as his devotees do. I've frankly never read an interview with him that didn't make me appreciate his work even more, and when he took a media call earlier this week to discuss the future of Breaking Bad and Sunday's Season 4 finale "Face Off," he sounded as excited as his questioners did about what's going to go down. Below are the highlights for your nerve-racking pleasure.
After a whole lot of drama about being shortened fifth season, the producers of Breaking Bad have been shopping around their series to other networks. We all know it's totally a power move -- and an appreciated one at that, because a six-episode final season is just plain cruel -- but it's fun to imagine what Walt and the crew would look like on other channels, both broadcast and cable.

Sitcoms get to have all the fun during the holidays, leaving dramas out in the cold when it comes to warm and fuzzy (and sometimes bloody) winter episodes. There are a handful of scripted series we'd love to see celebrate the season with themed episodes, and we're so convinced of their potential that we've even come up with suggested plotlines for them. You can thank us after New Year's.
