AMC is ringing in 2015 with Breaking Bad (December 28 & 29) and The Walking Dead (December 30 & 31) Marathons.
Beginning today, the network will be running its annual Home for the Holidays movie marathon – airing two holiday-themed movies back-to-back in primetime. Some of the titles featured include: Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, White Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street and Blake Shelton’s Not So Family Christmas.
Other cool Yule events planned include: AMC Celebrates: White Christmas 60th Anniversary; AMC Celebrates: Miracle on 34th Street (1994) 20th Anniversary; Christmas Movie Marathon, and Christmas with the Duke. Follow the jump for details.
If there’s anything more confusing than a list of Emmy® winners, I’m not sure I know what it is. Even after some horrendous snubs (not just Tatiana Maslany…), there were still a lot of worthy nominees this year. The problem is that deserved wins by the consistently excellent Breaking Bad (for example) were cheapened by repeat wins by shows that were not as good as other nominees in their class (Modern Family, for example).
For every win for something new and amazing (Fargo), there was a win that made no sense at all (Kathy Bates over Allison Tolman? WTF?). And how does Louis C.K. win for comedy writing and lose comedy series to Modern Family, Academy? You just said that Louie had the best (ie: funniest) comedy writing!
Anyway, follow the jump for a complete list of Emmy winners and, quite possibly, a wee bit of commentary.
It has been a remarkable year for television. More places to find scripted programming meant more quality programming – networks that were just beginning to dabble in scripted shows had to find or produce quality fare just to get noticed. As a result, we got shows like Rectify and The Returned. Networks, faced with dwindling ratings and top-notch cable shows took a few flyers and produced some pretty entertaining new shows (and some awful duds – but at least they were trying!).
Indeed, there were so many really entertaining shows that I just couldn’t limit my 2013 list to fifteen. So, follow the jump for my favorite shows of 2013 – plus some bottom feeders and disappointments.
AMC will end 2013 in style with a four-day marathon of Breaking Bad. From Fri., Dec. 27 through Mon., Dec. 30 (starting at Noon/11c each day), the series’ critically acclaimed five seasons roll out back-to-back starting with the Pilot on through the unforgettable Series Finale.
Somehow the entire Breaking Bad phenomena escaped me so I’m really looking forward to catching the Breaking Bad: The Complete Series Blu-ray. Sony Home Video has put together a pretty amazing sounding package that includes over 55 HOURs of extras and the set even comes with a digital copy of the full series. That ain’t bad. The full press release is after the break.
Ok everyone, Breaking Bad is ending this weekend. Make the final episode a bit less traumatic for you by making the Heisenberg Cocktail! Courtesy of April Luca of DNA Events, here is the Recipe to make this yummy looking drink.
