It was so good to see Bryan Cranston win a Tony award for his role as President Lyndon Baines Johnson in All the Way. All the Way also won for Best Play. For you Bryan Cranston and Breaking Bad fans… do not miss this! I don’t know if he will be reprising this role anytime soon, (although there are talks about an All the Way sequel).  But if you want to see the definition of a tour de force performance — this is it.

Tony, Tony, Tony. There is something maddening about the Tony award nominations for Broadway shows. Each year there seems to be a “HUH, NO WAY!” moment for me.

Bryan Cranston is coming to Broadway in All the Way.

When the final episode of Breaking Bad aired last week, there was one notable cast member missing from Talking Bad, the live TV show following the finale — Bryan Cranston.  That’s because Cranston was in Boston that night starring in the dramatic play All the Way.

The good news for Breaking Bad fans is that  All the Way is headed to Broadway sometime this winter.

Breaking Bad: The Right Chemistry


Vince Gilligan in the writer's room, the genius behind Breaking Bad.

Vince Gilligan in the writer’s room, the genius behind Breaking Bad.

Breaking Bad’s wildly popular success is due to the great chemistry between top notch writers and a great cast. When I interviewed Giancarlo Esposito (Gus) a couple years ago, he told me the actors religiously followed the script. There was little to no improvisation or changing the lines.

So kudos to the Breaking Bad writing staff, Vince Gilligan, Thomas Schnauz, Peter Gould, George Mastras, John Shiban, Sam Catlin, Moira Wally-Beckett, Patty Lin and Gennifer Hutchison, you were the show’s heart and soul.

There are so many good lines from Breaking Bad. Here are a few of my favorites: Read more…

Breaking Bad: Walt breaks free, his way


Walt gets a modicum of satisfaction seeing his name as pop culture graffiti.

Walt gets a modicum of satisfaction seeing his name as pop culture graffiti.

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way

In the series finale of Breaking Bad, Walter Hartwell White indeed did it his way. Read more…

Breaking Bad: The end is near


Walt gets cabin fever in the penultimate episode of Breaking Bad.

Congratulations to Breaking Bad, Emmy winner for Best Drama Series and Anna Gunn as Best Supporting Actress.  As the end of this amazing show nears, it’s good to see it finally get the recognition it deserves as best dramatic series.

A real treat too to see Anna Gunn get some appreciation. She is often criticized for her portrayal of Skyler as a b*tch. But truly, she has proved she has quite a range — naive, cold, suicidal, shrewd money launderer, loving wife. Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have their Emmys, so it was good to see Anna Gunn get her moment too. I still think Giancarlo Esposito deserved an Emmy for his portrayal of Gus, but it is what it is.
