BREAKING BAD returns 15 July on AMC
Mark this date in your diaries: 15 July. That's when AMC start airing Breaking Bad's fifth and final season. The bad news is this 16-episode season's being split in half, so we'll only get 8 episodes before the final 8 are shown in summer 2013.
But in some way that's actually good news, because it prolongs the passing of TV's greatest show, and the writers will have ample time to perfectly construct the show's conclusion. If you're insane and haven't been watching Breaking Bad (that's only understandable if you live in the UK, where it's never aired in a decent timeslot), I recommend you overdose on box-sets over the next few months in preparation. I can't wait to see what happens next.
Incidentally, this feels like an apposite time to remind people about my TV Calendar. There you'll find the premiere dates of many UK and US shows, so it's a handy page to bookmark and refer back to.
