Itís a tricky thing, bringing characters from a beloved series onto a different show within the same universe. But not once has that worry gone through our heads regarding Vince Gilliganís Breaking Bad spin-off series, Better Call Saul. Especially with the news that Aaron Paul will be reprising his role as Jesse Pinkman. Now weíre just thinking about how we're going to lose our ever-loving minds in the best way.
One of the major up-sides to AMC's Better Call Saul series being a prequel is that it opens up the opportunity to bring back pretty much anyone from Breaking Bad at some point or another, whether it be for a cameo or a bigger arc in the series.
Theyíll soon rein in the external thrills for something far more personal and stress-inducing, as theyíve granted a series order to the ballet drama Flesh and Bone from creator and former dancer Moira Walley-Beckett, the producer/actress/writer responsible for some Breaking Badís most memorable episodes.

It probably wonít be long before we all start to go through serious Breaking Bad withdrawal. Oh, sure, the series wrapped up months ago, but the satisfaction of a drama well concluded will eventually wear off and those of us who anticipated the seriesí return each year will find ourselves reminding ourselves that Breaking Bad isnít coming back this year.
A lot of people died on television in 2013. Maybe the number of small-screen fatalities are always this high but it sure seems like the past year went above and beyond in the death department. Big series offing two, three even four major characters was commonplace. No one is safe, especially on cable. Here are ten shows that featured some of the year's most memorable and/or shocking losses.
With Christmas just barely in the rearview and the new year upon us, nowís a good time to look back on what people were watching over the last year, or in the case of this latest compilation, what TV shows people were pirating most in 2013. As it happens, Game of Thrones has once again topped the list.

Better Call Saul has yet to air.
