This week New York Magazine pays close attention to Vince Gilligan and Breaking Bad, while Daemon’s TV puts the show at No. 2 on its list of TV series to last the rest of your life.

Vince Gilligan is prominently featured in New York magazine’s TV issue, in which he says of Season 4, “Walt’s relationship with Jesse gets tested to a degree it’s never been tested before. Their partnership gets very tricky. In a sense, the student becomes the master this season.”

New York magazine also has behind-the-scenes photos from the set of Breaking Bad, including one of Vince Gilligan and Bryan Cranston dressed in their yellow Tyvek suits.

• Last but not least, New York magazine’s examination of AMC discusses the genesis of Breaking Bad at the network: “One acclaimed hit series was arguably a fluke,” the article says, referring to Mad Men. “Two back-to-back was something else.”

Daemon’s TV ranks Breaking Bad No. 2 on its list of “Seven TV Shows To Last You A Lifetime”, citing Bryan Cranston’s performance, which is “is outshining almost all other male performances not only in recent television (arguably all of television history), but in recent movies too.”

Survivor‘s Jeff Probst tells TV Guide he can relate to Walter White: “I’d like to think I’d do something similar if I found myself in his situation.”

The Hollywood Reporter states that Breaking Bad was one of the most improved TV series in media agency Optimedia U.S.’s recent Content Power Ratings.
