AMC to air 'Breaking Bad', 'Walking Dead' marathons (with VIDEO)
AMC announced today that the network will host a Breaking Bad marathon at the end of this month, airing all five seasons of the masterful Emmy-winning drama. Bring on the bingeing! Starting at 11 a.m. each day, the episodes will run Dec. 27-30. (And yes, if you must know, there’s also a two-day marathon of The Walking Dead starting Dec. 31, but as a Dead hater, I can’t talk about those two shows in the same breath and feel good about myself.)
If you’re still trying to catch up on the series that ended in September (have you gotten to the train episode yet, Sean Daly?!), it’s worth noting that this marathon is the only place right now to see every Breaking Bad episode for “free” (if you have cable, that is). You can rent discs of the entire show from Netflix, but the second half of the fifth season is not yet available via Netflix streaming, like the rest of the series is. Your only other (legal) option is to buy this awesome complete series box set, released last Tuesday. (Heads up, Santa!)
To commemorate the announcement, we’re including this video of Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul reading the finale script for the first time. It’s part of an extra in that complete series set, and if you haven’t yet seen it, it’s a must-watch for Bad fans who've seen the whole series. Emotions, people. And lots of them.
