August 11 cannot get here fast enough for fans of the AMC smash hit "Breaking Bad" as the shows final eight episodes draw closer. But the network gave fans something to chew on with a promo video for Season 5 Part 2.
The video points out that "Breaking Bad" appeared on more television critics' Top 10 lists than any other show last year. Check it out below:
The promo does not have any new footage, but it is still a way to whet fans' appetites (and drive them even more crazy) in advance of the Aug. 11 premiere.
As Mstars previously reported, IGN got a few words from Aaron Paul, who plays Walter White's sidekick Jesse Pinkman, about the final eight episodes and he did not mince words.
"You guys are gonna s*** your pants," Paul said. "Before I read the final eight episodes, the final eight hours of the show, I was thinking to myself, 'This is so tragic. I can't believe this show is ending.' I didn't want it to end. But after knowing how the final eight hours play out, I couldn't be happier with the way that it ended. Hopefully, you all agree, and I feel pretty confident that you will."
Dean Norris, who plays Walt's DEA agent brother-in-law Hank, spoke to Entertainment Weekly Radio on SiriusXM Channel 105 and also previewed the ending.
"There's going to be a big Walt-Hank showdown," Norris said. "Obviously now that Hank is on to it, he needs to deal with that situation. It's like a freight train, man."
Norris also offered some high praise for the last eight episodes of "Breaking Bad," which has evolved into one of the best shows on television in the last several years.
"These eight episodes, I think, are possibly the best eight in the whole series," Norris said. "And that's saying a lot because it's a great series. They just power right through."
