AMC to Marathon Entire Run of 'Breaking Bad' Prior to Finale


Breaking Bad


It feels like the majority of America has 'Breaking Bad' fever. The final season is setting new ratings records seemingly every week, the social media chatter steadily increases as events unfold, and sales of the previous seasons on DVD are zooming upward. Yesterday, we brought you the news that the final two episodes of 'Bad' will be a super-sized 75 minutes each. Today, AMC has announced that it will re-broadcast the entire series run prior to the big finale on Sunday, Sept. 29.

The fun begins next Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 8/7c. All 46 episodes of the first four seasons, from the pilot to 'Face Off' will air consecutively. This will end late on Friday, Sept. 27. Then, at 11/10c on Saturday, Sept. 28, AMC will begin re-airing all 15 previous season five episodes. This will all lead right up to the series finale at 9/8c, which will be immediately followed by an hour-long edition of 'Talking Bad' at 10:15/9:15c. The latest episode of 'Low Winter Sun' is thus being pushed to 11:15/10:15c.

How do roughly 15 hours of TV fill a 22 hour marathon, you may be asking? 'Live Free or Die,' 'Madrigal,' 'Hazard Pay,' 'Fifty-One,' and 'Dead Freight' are all being shown twice. You'd think it would make more sense to just start the season five marathon five hours later, but I guess that's why I'm not a network executive.

The final two episodes of 'Breaking Bad,' entitled 'Granite State' and 'Felina,' air this Sunday and next Sunday at 9/8c on AMC. Do you think Walt should survive the series?
