Breaking Bad: How Far Can Walter White Fall?

Bryant Cranston and Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad

In Breaking Bad's fourth season, Walter White may finally accept what viewers have known for a while now: Walt is not a good man.

When viewers first met Walt (Bryan Cranston), running around the desert in tighty-whiteys after his first kill, his plight as a terminally-ill-chemistry-teacher-turned-crystal-meth-maker was still somewhat relatable. But after telling a mountain of lies, collecting boatloads of cash and committing a few more murders, Walt now seems about as black as his alter ego Heisenberg's porkpie hat.

Breaking Bad: Can Walt Repair His Broken Marriage?

Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad

The consequences of Walt's actions are really about to pile up on Breaking Bad.

In the season opener (warning: minor spoilers follow) Skyler (Anna Gunn) filed for divorce after learning that Walt (Bryan Cranston) has become a crystal meth manufacturer. On Sunday's episode (10/9c, AMC), Walt gets his first taste of how serious Skyler really is.

Breaking Bad: Is Walter White TV's Biggest Liar?

Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad's Walter White might be television's all-time greatest liar.

"I didn't set out with that in mind, but when you lead a double life, you have to lie constantly," Vince Gilligan, the creator and executive producer of the AMC drama, tells "It's just something you have to do. Otherwise the rest of it isn't going to work."

Stricken with guilt over the two planes' 167 casualties, Walt begins Season 3 by telling himself that he's done cooking meth, and that he's not a criminal... read more

In the Works: What If 24 Were a Medical Comedy?

ABC has given a series commitment to The Call, a real-time medical comedy from 24 creators Joel Surnow and Bob Cochran, says the Hollywood Reporter.
