The cast and crew of Breaking Bad had some really exciting things to say about Season 5, which premieres tomorrow night and will consist of eight episodes. Actor Dean Norris, who plays Hank, said he was thrilled to be out of bed for so long in Season 4. He said playing bedridden for so long actually affected him personally- got his spirits down. And now, in Season 5, he's busted the cartel and feels vindicated. And it's time to really settle things between him and Walt. With regards to their storyline, Hank said that "Vince is not going to shy away from that. It will be the last big arc to be dealt with. The final confrontation." Dean commented that the reason Hank hasn't caught Walt yet is because he's so close to him and can't fathom tha…Read more >
I attended the Clone Wars panel today which featured supervising director Dave Filoni and writer Matt Michnvetz (who is also a writer on the video game Star Wars 1313). They were both super excited about Season 5. Matt went so far as to say it's the "best season yet!"

Executive Producer and Showrunner Glen Mazzara talked about how excited he was about the new season. "We really hit the ground running. The intensity from the end of Season 2 is kinda the launching point and we just have a really, really great, tight story this season." He was a bit reluctant to give away any specifics about the plot and how it may or may not be different from the comics. He was willing to divulge only in general terms. "The first two seasons is about looking for safe havens. But the farm was j…Read more >
Author Scott Westerfeld of Leviathan fame, has told Wikia at Comic-Con that he will be adapting his popular young adult series, Uglies, to manga format.
He has revealed that he will tell the story this time from the perspective of Shay, protagonist Tally Youngblood's best friend. Shay, nicknamed "Skinny" because of her large weight, is part of a runaway gang of uglies called the Smokies trying to avoid the government decree that all 16 year-olds go under the knife to be made pretty.
Uglies is in the works as a feature film from Twentieth Century Fox and producer John Davis, though seems to be moving at a glacial pace. Given it's themes on the meaning of beauty, Uglies seems a natural fit for a Japanese graphic novel. Check out a sample pag…Read more >
