NY Times Calls Breaking Bad Cable’s Best, Courier-Journal Calls it Cinematic


Breaking Bad is cited by the New York Times, the Courier-Journal and other publications for being one of cable’s best, plus Bryan Cranston and Giancarlo Esposito are mentioned in casting news.

The New York Times singles out Breaking Bad, explaining, “At the moment, most of the best cable series are about criminals or psychopaths, or both.”

The Courier-Journal quotes a TV Guide editor who praises Breaking Bad for being “a completely cinematic show, not just the look of it, but the complexity of it.”

The Salt Lake Tribune thinks Breaking Bad‘s Season 3 Episode 10 (“Fly”) was a “daring, expertly written” episode” that you “would never see on ABC, CBS, Fox or NBC.”

Variety notes about Breaking Bad, “few series… are more adept at consistently keeping their audience off balance as to what happens next.”

The Los Angeles Times refers to Fox’s Lone Star as “an opportunity to pull some cable viewers back that like shows like Weeds and Breaking Bad, shows that have a little bit of danger.”

The Playlist reports that Bryan Cranston is joining the cast of Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion. /Film finds the news “Fantastic.”

Catch Giancarlo Esposito later this year in Rabbit Hole, starring Nicole Kidman.

RJ Mitte speaks out against bulllying, noting, “I know from personal experience that the bullying of a disabled person can still be seen by some as acceptable or is given a silent pass.”
