Shed a tear and light a candle (or whatever it is that you do when you lose something) -- there are only eight episodes of "Breaking Bad" to go. The cherished series draws to an end this summer and Walter White and Jesse Pinkman will find their fates decided. But that world may not be closed entirely. Last summer, "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan said, “I would love to see a Saul Goodman spinoff. I can’t say that it is genuinely in the works at this moment, but certainly Bob Odenkirk and I have talked about it a little bit.” And while he remained cautious about it happening, it's not so farfetched...

Trend alert!? Are we headed for full blown prequel-itis on TV? With NBC experiencing a nearly-there hit with the actually pretty decent "Hannibal" (they're going to rerun the pilot this Wednesday night, before airing the second episode on Thursday), A&E has already gone ahead and declared "Bates Motel" a winner.

Even though the result of their first collaboration, "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," wasn't so incredible, it seems the unlikely pairing of gritty character actor James Gandolfini and comic lead Steve Carell will continue beyond the magician comedy. Last fall, it was reported the duo were putting together a paleontology comedy (they really seem to love the high concepts). That project has now found a home, and a few plot details have surfaced.

Behind The Candelabra, Michael Douglas
Steven Soderbergh has never been one to resist a challenge (ie. a 12-hour adaptation of John Barth's "The Sot-Weed Factor"), and certainly, his long-developing biopic of Liberace, "Behind the Candelabra," faced its fair share of resistance. The director has been up front about major studios turning down the movie for being "too gay," but it seems it's going to be their loss. HBO has dropped a brand new trailer for the movie and it looks nothing short of great.

You may have forgotten, but last night was the premiere of the somewhat highly anticipated "Hannibal" on NBC, a network that can't seem to sell a show to save their life. But this one is/was certainly promising. The excellent Mads Mikkelsen leads the show as the titular cannibal, but in his early days as a doctor, before he became much more well known for his peculiar appetites. He's enlisted by the FBI to help Hugh Dancy capture a serial killer, but of course the twist that Hannibal Lecter is a killer himself adding a layer of intrigue to the show. Does it all work?

The unstoppable "Girls" may have just closed out its second season with its divisive finale, but it looks like one of the major storyline developments is getting an unexpected shakeup. Not all is sunny on Lena Dunham's set of the now-shooting third season, and one major character has abruptly exited the show.

With each successive season, “Mad Men” and its creator Matthew Weiner have grown more secretive in their slowly tightening grip on Don Draper (Jon Hamm) and his personal and professional affairs. So far, nothing has changed with season six a mere few days before its premiere, but a quick featurette and some photos have dropped to get excitement rolling all over again.

Well, geez that didn't take long. It's already safe to say that HBO's "Game Of Thrones" is already one of the crown jewels of their slate, and with viewers turning on the TV Sunday night in droves, it's not a shock that they are eager to keep a flag planted in Westeros.
