AMC Renews Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad, Bryan CranstonIf you only watch AMC for the occasional classic movie, you’re missing out on so much more.  The channel’s first original drama series, , won the a Golden Globe for Best Drama back in January.  One week later, Breaking Bad was introduced.  And let me assure you, that show is just as worthy of praise as was its predecessor.

The show, created by Vince Gilligan (X-Files), centers around a chemistry teacher (Malcolm in the Middle’s Bryan Cranston) who produces crystal meth on the side.  When he is diagnosed with terminal cancer, he secretly tries to raise funds for his pregnant wife and handicapped son.  Fortunately for fans, the intriguing concept - which ended after only seven episodes - has just been renewed for another thirteen.
