Vince Gilligan Breaking Bad Bryan Cranston
Walter White may be dead, but it seems we can't stop talking about the finale to "Breaking Bad" even as we approach a year since it first aired. The meth dealer left for dead, it was a fitting ending to the character whose initial attempt to pay for cancer treatment turned into a new, illegal profession that turned him into a monster. And while we've known that the writers batted around many ideas when it came to how to close off the show, creator/writer/director Vince Gilligan reveals another version that would've seen a bigger body count. But he first lays out how tricky it was to put anything in place at all.

While the development of the small screen take on “The Exorcist” stalled last summer, NBC is filling the horror void with their two-part, four-hour take on “Rosemary’s Baby” and a trailer for the miniseries has arrived online to chill you to the bone.

While Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” hasn’t exactly blown doors down in the ratings department for ABC, it hasn’t stopped the studio from developing more projects for the small screen.

Game Of Thrones
If there is one piece of advice in the land of Westeros, it is DO NOT ACCEPT AN INVITATION TO A WEDDING. Also, don’t get married, don’t participate in weddings, just never go anywhere or do anything. I’m starting to wonder if George R.R. Martin is an anti-marriage advocate or something. I do think that “The Lion and The Rose” (directed by Alex Graves) one-ups “The Red Wedding” in terms of sheer shock value, and I will get into that later, but let’s check in with the rest of the gang before we delve into the wedding business.

The Truman Show
Because we don't already live in a world where reality TV makes voyeurs of us all, as we watch people who know we are watching them, Paramount TV has decided to kick things up a notch. Buried in a piece at The Wrap about the studio's executive television team was this little nugget: "[Paramount] is developing a drama series inspired by Caleb Carr’s novel 'The Alienist,' a limited series based on A.
