Low Winter Sun, AMC's Latest Morality Tale, "Meanders In and Out of Truth and Lies"

Lennie James, Mark Strong

It's fitting that Low Winter Sun, AMC's gritty adaptation of the 2006 British miniseries about crooked cops, is premiering immediately after Breaking Bad this Sunday. Both shows are examinations of deeply flawed men fumbling their way through situations that cause both the characters and viewers to question their own notions of morality.

Weekend Review: Breaking Bad, Low Winter Sun, White Queen, Strike Back, Clear History

Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul

As if we needed more evidence that there's never a slow time of year for significant TV (except maybe Christmas week), here's a mid-August weekend with so many premieres you might think fall had come early — although the new fall season would be lucky to boast shows remotely this interesting.

The greatest buzz, of course, surrounds the beginning of the end of AMC's darkly entertaining masterpiece Breaking Bad (Sunday, 9/8c), which resumes its climactic trajectory with the first of eight final episodes — and if Sunday's blistering hour is any indication of what's to come over the next two months, we're in for quite the wrenching ride. A ride that's teased by an opening flash-forward which suggests catastrophic consequences for the domestic life of Walter White (Bryan Cranston, astonishing as ever in his swings from mensch to menacing) — whose criminal alter ego is now in danger of being exposed by his brother-in-law/DEA agent Hank (Dean Norris, a world removed from the melodramatics of his new gig Under the Dome).

Exclusive Video: Get a First Look at AMC's Low Winter Sun

Ruben Santiago-Hudson and Mark Strong

AMC's upcoming series Low Winter Sun is about police officers, but it's a far cry from the typical police procedural. The plot revolves around two detectives, played by Mark Strong and Lennie James, who murder a dirty cop in their department.

"This isn't a story about the minutiae of police work," James says in a behind-the-scenes video exclusive to TVGuide.com. "This is a thriller about people who have secrets and have ulterior motives."

The Walking Dead Postmortem: Robert Kirkman Defends Major Death, Teases Season 4

Laurie Holden

[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Sunday's Season 3 finale of The Walking Dead. Read at your own risk!]

The Walking Dead shook things up again on Sunday's Season 3 finale by killing off another main character — and proving once and for all that the AMC series is unafraid to ax anyone, no matter what happened in the comics.

In this instance, it was Andrea (Laurie Holden), who became a polarizing character in the third season when she began literally sleeping with the enemy in the form of The Governor (David Morrisey) the charismatic leader of the supposedly idyllic town of Woodbury. (Of course, Andrea learned the hard way that The Governor is actually a sadist who rules the town with an iron fist.) Still, killing off one of the few original characters who is still alive in the comics is sure to get Dead fans talking until the series returns in October. To find out why the writers decided to kill off Andrea, TVGuide.com turned to executive producer Robert Kirkman, who also dishes on what's in store for Season 4... read more
