AMC's Turn Showcases an Untold Story of the American Revolution

Jamie Bell

AMC is banking big on Turn, its new spy series set during the Revolutionary War. With Breaking Bad over and Mad Men entering its final season, not to mention last year's non-starter Low Winter Sun, the network is in desperate need of a drama besides The Walking Dead on which to hang its storytelling hat.

Where Does AMC Go From Here?

Jon Hamm, Bryan Cranston, Andrew Lincoln

AMC is at a crossroads.

Although the cable network's successes in 2013 are hard to ignore — Breaking Bad ended its landmark run to critical raves and an astounding 400-plus percent growth in total viewers,  and The Walking Dead remained TV's top-rated drama with a Season 4 premiere that drew 16 million sets of eyeballs — the network faced its share of setbacks. A resurrected third season of The Killing earned better reviews, but it was canceled (again) after failing to deliver an audience (it's since been revived again by Netflix). Worse, freshman drama Low Winter Sun was utterly rejected by viewers despite being paired with Bad's successful final run.

AMC

AMC has ordered two pilots, the network announced Monday.

The first, Knifeman, is set in 18th century London and features a hard-drinking, arrogant yet charming genius named John Tattersal, who works as a surgeon at a time when bloodletting was a common practice.

The second, Galyntine, is a sci-fi/fantasy project that takes place after a cataclysmic disaster has resulted in a society that eschews any form of technology and leaves small groups of survivors scattered around the planet. read more

Question: On your recommendation, I watched the first episode of Mom. Why do sitcoms insist on using these horrible laugh tracks still? I found it so distracting it took away from any viewing pleasure. I'll sample the show again because I really like the actors, but do you hate laugh tracks as much as I do? — Rob

This week, ABC launched its online companion series to Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Declassified," in conjunction with the series premiere. An Internet genius decided to combine Breaking Bad with the Seinfeld theme music and laugh track and turn AMC's dark drama into a quirky comedy, whileDean Norris gave us a hint at what might be next for Hank Schraeder. In other AMC-related content, College Humor hilariously pondered why no one's watching Low Winter Sun. And, Homeland fans who are gearing up for the Season 3 premiere on Sunday can check out the Abu Nazir Acting School, as well as Homeland: The Musical.

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).
