If we thought we knew where Breaking Bad was really going, of course... we didn't. In what may one of the finest hours of television ever, we got the tragic truth all too clearly...

Thinking about where Breaking Bad has bee and gone, and will go, usually ends up with more questions. But that's the power of this series that has us, and won't let go. Until Sunday...

You'd think there was only one show currently running on television, given all the space TVWW has devoted to Breaking Bad. But we just cannot recall another scripted series that has left us so electrified...

When Vince Gilligan tells you that last week's episode, To'hajiilee, was not as good as Breaking Bad gets, you'd better take notice...

Apparently, the Miley Cyrus performance at the recent  MTV Video Music Awards has travelled far – reaching the 23rd century and the Starship Enterprise... it seems to have had a similar effect on Captain Kirk and the crew as it did on the rest of us...

Good news, TVWW readers: David’s new book from Doubleday, The Platinum Age of Television: From I Love Lucy to The Walking Dead, How TV Became Terrific is available on Amazon for $20.

Doubleday says: “Darwin had his theory of evolution, and David Bianculli has his. Bianculli's theory has to do with the concept of quality television: what it is and, crucially, how it got that way."

"The Platinum Age of Television is an effusive guidebook that plots the path from the 1950s’ Golden Age to today’s era of quality TV. For instance, animation evolved from Rocky and His Friends to South Park; variety shows moved from The Ed Sullivan Show to Saturday Night Live; and family sitcoms grew from I Love Lucy to Modern Family. A high point is the author’s interviews with Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Norman Lear, Bob Newhart, Matt Groening, Larry David, Amy Schumer and many others...Bianculli has written a highly readable history." —The Washington Post
