First, a thoroughly magnificent not-quite-nine-minute video that answers the question, "So what's been going on in this show?" This is fan-made, so be sure to send nice comments Jswinney1's way! (I was going to spend time posting about certain events to get anyone up to speed before the premiere, but seriously - this does it better.)
Next is the first clip to be released from AMC of the first episode of Season 5. The episode is titled "Live Free or Die," and I think the title might be a threat rather than a defiant boast. Watch Walt's reaction to what Junior is telling him. Can't wait!
This time next week, I'll be in Vancouver at the Slayage Conference on the Whedonverses putting the final touches on my paper discussing Cowboy Bebop and Whedon's Firefly. Don't worry - I've got the final, pre-Season-5 Walter White Wednesday ready to launch and, when I come back, it'll be time to start talking about Season 5!
Grab your respirators, folks! It's sure to be a bumpy ride!
