AMC struck it big with its first stab at original scripted programming: the Golden Globe-winning drama Mad Men. The cable channel's newest series starts Sunday, and with scripted shows fading fast due to the strike, it couldn't come at a better time.
Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston — best known as the dad from Malcolm in the Middle — as Walt White, a high school chemistry teacher with a struggling family. He's the kind of guy who just lets life happen to him until he's diagnosed with a terminal illness. That's when he decides to make a change, creating a meth lab in an old RV and generally raising hell. It sounds a little like Weeds meets The Bucket List, and that's an intriguingly bizarre combo.
With new TV dwindling by the day, are you up for giving Breaking Bad a shot? To watch a couple of previews, just read more.
