Breaking Bad: Watch the First New (And Super Short) Footage of Season 5 (VIDEO)

What was the best part of last night's Mad Men finale? The new footage of fellow AMC hit Breaking Bad, of course! After a fairly useless behind-the-scenes featurette, some mysterious phone calls, and endless Twitter hype, the network has finally released some real new footage of Season 5.

Okay, it's not a lot of new footage (I've had farts that lasted longer than that clip), clocking in at about 10 seconds' worth of actual material, but let's glean what we can from it. Unless Walter has been having breathing problems or is trying out some Nelly-inspired bandage fashion, it looks like Season 5 picks up right after the explosive events of Season 4. And obviously Walter's criminal lawyer Saul Goodman is still in the picture despite almost cutting ties with Walter toward the end of Season 4. It also appears that Walter's Heisenbergification is still a go, continuing his transformation from chemistry schlub to drug overlord.

"We're done when I say we're done," is about as cliché as it gets, but coming out of Bryan Cranston's mouth, it's pretty ferocious.


Breaking Bad Season 5 debuts July 15 on AMC.

I loved this comment on youtube: "These 15 seconds are better than the whole series of Dexter."

Better than most shows I think.

I don't know about that. Maybe these 15 seconds were better than all of last season of Dexter at least.

This really seems cliched and lame. And even more poorly put together. I hope Cranston has enjoyed his 15 minutes so far because it seems all downhill from here.

Troll harder...



As someone who's been on 2 different hit shows in the past decade (which included 6 emmy noms and 3 wins, plus some sag recognition and throw in some golden globe noms for both Comedic AND Dramatic roles, I might add) Brian Cranston's gotten far more than 15 minutes already...



Though you may have a point, it will be all downhill from here, but that's only because Breaking Bad is the best show on television right now - it's hard to go up from there.

What are you talking about? First of all, how can you say it's "downhill from here" after watching a 10 second clip?! Yeah, I'm sure that's representative for the whole season. And also: If you find that cliched, you must have hated Season 4's "I AM the danger" and about every scene with Gus? BB is by far the opposite of cliche. It's a place where people can do and say things that would be cliche in other movies/series but feel extremely realistic or understandable because of the story's elaborateness and it's sense to not "jump" to certain character developments but let them evolve.



But meh... why am I even feeding the troll.

Cliched, yes, in real life people speak in cliches; but lame? Breaking Bad has rarely touched on lame.

I want to scream at you but I can't. It's true. Breaking Bad ranks as one of the best television shows ever created and it's almost inconceivable to think anyone involved will ever work on something better. But I hope whatever Bryan moves onto is worthy of his talents. An actor of his pedigree deserves nothing less.

I think he has to go back to comedy after this. At least for a short while. I just don't think you can follow this up with another drama and have it taken as it's supposed to be taken. I say he does a year or two of comedy and then hops back into drama.

What does that even mean, taken as it's supposed to be taken? Millions more people know him as Hal than Walter anyway.

That one scene right there should tell you enough about what this season is going to be like.

Cannot wait. Just a superb show. Great acting great writing. One of the few shows I really get into. For those that have streaming Netflix I believe the series is still available to stream the first few seasons. I'll probably be doing some re watching leading up.

I can't take the wait anymore! I am going crazy. July 15th is so far away, too far for the greatest show on television. And knowing that it is going to be fantastic is only making the wait worse.

Quick question: I have not watched this series except for one random episode to check it out, which kind of bored me. AMC is rerunning the show from the beginning, which started Sunday night, and I watched and thought it OK, but the first episode had censored language, as certain words were silenced. Is this how the show originally aired or did they keep the language in? If so, why would they censor it now plus when the show is on late at night at least here in my area? I ask 'cause I hate censoring stuff from its original, as it seems I am being cheated of the creator's original intent, and would rather watch sometime on DVD than continue watching on AMC.

If you're going to be focused on a few words here and there, I'd say you wouldn't enjoy this show because it doesn't go over the top just to try to prove itself as "adult" like most HBO shows so often do. It's just naturally an amazing work of art, with or without a few f-words here and there.

it's not like you can't make out what they are really saying... it's pretty obvious when the first letter is an f and the last syllable is a k... my mind just subliminally fills it in. there is not much censoring - a word here or there, the show doesn't use swear words or nudity to get it's point across, they are far more effective in other ways.

As far as I recall in the original airing they only had 2 scenes in which the f-word was censored - but I sure may be wrong. I would recommend the DVD, anyway. No commercials, you can rewind and rewatch certain parts (happened to me a LOT when first watching BB). I understand if anyone finds the series boring by watching a random episode as the show is serialized and you need to watch every episode in order to really appreciate it.

Hmmm... should have watched before commenting. Yeah, I've had farts that lasted longer as well, not the the wife's pleasure. You'd think therefore doing both would result in something great, but alas.

Bryan Cranston rocks, bottom line. The genius of it is in him saying, "We're done wen I say we're done".



So, viewer... if you want to watch, you have no say.

Awesome! Both the clip and that TV.com embedded from YouTube were we non-Americans can watch them!
