Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad
10/9c AMC
While Season 2 ended with a bang for Walt and the gang, Season 3 begins in creepy fashion. Everyone is reeling from the mid-air collision of the two planes. Walt is foundering on his own; Jesse is languishing in anguish in rehab; and something wicked their way is a-coming. Walt gets an offer he can't refuse — but he does, and you wonder how long his resolve will last. This unnerving and suspenseful hour is also darkly humorous, and the series hits the ground running. Can't wait to see where it takes us.

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

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 TVGuide.com. "It's just something you have to do. Otherwise the rest of it isn't going to work."

In the early episodes of the show's searing third season, which begins Sunday at 10/9c, the person Walt (Bryan Cranston) lies to the most is himself. Several of Walt's decisions and actions last season culminated in a mid-air plane collision that rained debris over his own house. 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

Fringe left us with a crazy cliff-hanger. What will Olivia do with her newfound knowledge about Peter? — Brandt
MICKEY: The first post-hiatus episode, April 1's "Peter," is an '80s flashback blockbuster in which Walter finally tells Olivia the truth about his son. It fills in almost all the gaps in Peter's mysterious backstory: why Olivia sees him glimmer, how he was cured and why he owes the Observer his life. Plus: We'll meet Peter's mother for the first time and get a pretty good idea how Nina Sharp lost her arm to "cancer."

Aaron Paul says he looks up to his Breaking Bad co-star, Bryan Cranston, and now he's found a perfect way to emulate him.
