Well since they are about to release the Spanish version of BB called "metastasis" on Univision networks, maybe a publicity stunt?

This series is literally a Spanish clone! even down to the tighty whities!

I hate to say this on the chance I'll be ripped, but BB ended perfectly .. to bring it back in a thinly disguised money grab would, to me anyway, diminish the show ..

Oddball: Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

And I don't think anybody involved wants to either. Cranston was probably just goofing with that reporter.

They're all very happy with the show, how it ended, and it's justified place in the all-time great television series hierarchy. Nobody is going to want to mess that up.

'24' can come back and do another installment 4 years later, 'The X-Files' can make bad sequel movies, 'Dallas' can resurrect itself decades later. But 'Breaking Bad' isn't them and shouldn't try to be. That would be slumming.

I think Cranston was having some fun. I don't think Vince Gilligan would want to go back to it, he ended it perfectly and to mess with it again would probably destroy some of the legacy of the show.

I agree, this is one series that had a great ending and should be left as is but television and/or Hollywood don't have great restraint when it comes to "leaving money on the table". Usually if they feel there is money to be made unfortunately they will find a way.

Here's hoping Walter rests in peace!

Yesterday BB had some ROOF PIZZA, how come this idea hasn't spread across the U.S yet?

Hollywood can push all they want, but as Jamie said, VG won't let them tarnish his wonderful creation. Better Call Saul will be enough for him and should be enough for fans. S'all Good, Man!

Same price listed at Best Buy; no mention of today only.

Pretty sure my box set is the 15 disc version, I have seen it as low as $89 on ebay. Last I checked was $109.

Agree - I just finished the series after ignoring it during it's entire run (anti TV anything am I)
and I have to say, it's completely unique in many respects. The most important is NOT paying off the viewers in typical manner. Obviously, I missed the initial buzz on this series. Little did I know why until I finally decided to explore past the first season.
I jumped through the first 7 epps, but by 2-3 of the second, I was hooked. A 2nd pass is probable.

Biased, but willing to learn

Walter White CAN be in Better Call Saul!


http://variety.com/2014/tv/news/brea...on-1201255565/


Quote-"
Exec producer Peter Gould told The New York Daily News that the timeline for the new AMC series, which has already been renewed for a second season, is flexible.
“One of the great things about having a timeline which is flexible is that perhaps some of it takes place before ‘Breaking Bad,’ during ‘Breaking Bad’ and after ‘Breaking Bad,’” he said. “That gives us the ability to bring back characters that were killed on ‘Breaking Bad.’”
Although he said he wants Cranston’s teacher-turned-meth-master to make appearances on the show, he doesn’t want it to distract from Bob Odenkirk’s standalone storyline as criminal lawyer Saul. "
