Another "funny" thing happened around this case.....when the perp showed up in court the other other day he was wearing a car club jacket that said "Imperials" on the back. A guy who is a member of the car club saw the TV report and recognized the jacket as the one that was stolen out of his truck in Feb. He said there are only 3 club jackets like that ever made and the other two are accounted for. He filed a police report and was concerned that seeing the club jacket on that guy who has a long rap sheet would reflect badly on the club. Haven't heard if he got his jacket back yet. That perp has a rap sheet as long as your arm 15-20 warrants on him over the last 4-5 years.

Great article ! Regarding AMC as the channel...." They were in the market to create scripted programming. They had nothing to lose. They werenít as risk-adverse, perhaps. When youíre young and hungry or up-and-coming, itís easier to be risk-adverse, and thank goodness that they wanted to do it."......they have burst on the scene with several excellent shows in addition to BB. The Walking Dead, Hell on Wheels, etc. and I hear that Mad Men is very popular although the several times I have tried to watch it the appeal is beyond me.... scratch

'Breaking Bad' Final Season Premiere Date and More AMC News
Wednesday, April 17, 2013

John Kubicek
Senior Writer, BuddyTV

The end is near for Walter White. Today AMC announced that the final eight episodes of the Emmy-winning drama Breaking Bad will premiere on Sunday, August 11 at 9pm. In addition, AMC revealed a number of new shows in development, renewals for several of its unscripted shows, and more premiere dates for new and returning programs.

The second half of Breaking Bad's fifth and final season launches in August, meaning that, if it airs with no breaks, the series finale will come on September 29. It will also help launch two new shows airing Sunday nights.

At 10pm starting Sunday, August 11, AMC will premiere Low Winter Sun, a drama starring Mark Strong and Lennie James. The show revolves around the Detroit criminal underworld as a detective gets wrapped up in the seedier side of the law after he murders a fellow cop. I'll try to hold off on "Isn't that just The Shield?" comments until I see it...........nope.

Additionally, AMC will try to replicate the success of the post-Walking Dead show Talking Dead with Talking Bad, a live show airing Sundays at 11pm starting on August 11 that will analyze and discuss the episode of Breaking Bad airing earlier that night. This could be good if they get the right host. Chris Hardwick would be my choice.

OTHER PREMIERE DATES

Small Town Security, the unscripted show following a family-run security firm in Georgia, returns for season 2 Thursday, May 9 at 10pm....nope

Showville, a new reality competition that highlights a talent show in a small town, premieres Thursday, May 23 at 9pm....nope

Owner's Manual, a new reality show, debuts Thursday, August 15 at 9pm. Each week two men will go head-to-head to operate a complicated piece of machinery or technology, with one following the manual to learn how it works while the other throws out the rules and uses nothing but his instincts.....I'll watch, maybe once.

The Pitch, the Mad Men-esque reality competition where two ad agencies compete for a client, returns for season 2 Thursday, August 15 at 10pm. Nope.

As previously announced, The Killing returns for season 3 Sunday, June 2 at 8pm (moving to 9pm the following week)...nope and the third season of Hell on Wheels is back Saturday, August 3 at 9pm...... Yea ! two thumbs up

RENEWALS

Talking Dead, the Walking Dead talk show, will be back to comment on the upcoming fourth season of the zombie drama. Yea ! clap Additionally, Comic Book Men was picked up for a third season while circus sideshow reality series Freakshow will return for season 2. Nope and nope.

NEW SHOWS IN DEVELOPMENT

Aside from all of these premieres and renewals, AMC also announced a large development slate of scripted and reality shows. None of these are officially picked up, but here's what AMC is working on.

Ballistic City: A futuristic drama about a cop aboard a spaceship headed for an unknown world, produced by the people behind the upcoming films Oblivion and Pacific Rim. Okay.

King: A period drama set in the 1960s where a Florida man teams up with a racist organization to get elected to the Senate, only to get appointed by LBJ to campaign for civil rights in the South. It's executive produced by MSNBC's Joe Scarborough. Nope.

Ashland: A 1950s drama about a California family who moves to a Kentucky mining town. Nope

White City: A drama about diplomats and journalists living in Afghanistan. Nope

Untitled Dahvi Waller Project: From a producer/writer of Mad Men, this 1920s drama follows a pair of brothers involved in the New York automobile industry. Nope

Untitled Tim Lea Project: Set in the near future, this drama follows the conflict between an oppressive U.S. government and a movement to begin the second American Revolution. Okay, might be good and relevant

The Wall: A 1960s drama about an American businessman who gets involved in Berlin espionage. Hmm... scratch

Majority Rules: An unscripted show that follows the political process from the grass roots level. NOPE !!!

All-Star Celebrity Bowling: It's exactly what you think it is. Well, let's see who the celebrities are...

Cancelled: A social experiment that puts cameras in six families' houses and then sees which one can get the highest "ratings" or viewers.
Does this mean that it's already cancelled, hopefully, or it's the name of the show ?

So the Talking Bad show starts right away after the first new ep ! That's good, it provides the best fan interaction as demonstrated by the Talking Dead show.

I didn't know there were such things as Lego video games so some of the 'playing technicalities' of this is over my head , but it's still funny.

A Day on the Set of Breaking Bad - Part I
BB-S5-BTS-Slovis-Paul-560.jpg

On a crisp January morning, the Breaking Bad crew huddles against a concrete spillway in Albuquerque. They're here to get one shot: It's at this location where Jesse will come to a decision that, as the episode's director Michael Slovis tells me, "pushes all the stories forward" in the final eight episodes. But first, the sun has to rise.

Aaron Paul emerges from his trailer wearing a fur-lined parka, which he'll shed before filming starts. (Gennifer Hutchison, the episode's writer, explains that the show maintains a constant "spring" look, meaning the actors always wear light jackets. "So in the summer they're sweltering," she says, "and now they're freezing.") His hair has grown longer since last we saw him, as has his beard. "Jesse's so haggard," Paul laughs. "I feel bad for him."

"We've got sun!" a crew member shouts, sparking a frenzy of activity. Paul quickly sheds the parka and positions himself on top of a crate. At his feet is what Hutchison calls the "smallest circular track ever," which will carry a camera 360 degrees around Paul as the scene develops. Slovis calls "action" and Paul's demeanor instantly shifts as he becomes Jesse, right before everyone's eyes.

Between takes, the police allow traffic to pass along Juan Tabo Boulevard (coincidentally home to the late great Gale Boetticher). Some drivers honk their horns; others open their windows and shout "Yeah Breaking Bad!" The crew has noticed more and more of this as the seasons have progressed. Whereas once signs directed crew members to shooting locations using the iconic Breaking Bad periodic table logo, now they use more obscure arrangements of letters -- code, I'm told, to prevent locals from stealing the signs. "I think everybody in Albuquerque watches Breaking Bad now," Paul says.

The final shot of the morning takes place across the street, where Jesse appears as just a small speck against the concrete edifices that look like tombstones. Camera Operator Andy Voegeli is perched 10 feet above the ground on an enormous tripod. Between the camera and Paul, a street dead-ends into the dam with left- and right-turn only arrows painted onto the lanes. "I love this shot," Slovis says of the panorama. "It's like Jesse could go either way."

Whichever way Jesse goes, Paul at least is finished for the day. The production quickly packs up and heads to its second location: A family-style Mexican restaurant where red and green bare light bulbs hang from the ceiling and the wait-staff sport Cozymel blouses and long purple skirts -- so kitschy it just has to be real.

Originally, the script called for the Whites (Skyler and Walt) and the Schraders (Hank and Marie) to meet at a national chain restaurant. But last-minute cold feet on the restaurant's part forced the production to find a new location -- a turn of luck that Line Producer Stewart Lyons couldn't be more thrilled about. "I'm a big believer in happy accidents," he tells me. "Look at this place. It's a family restaurant with just that little twist that makes it uniquely Breaking Bad."

Also present in the scene will be over 60 extras -- waiters, busboys and most importantly, families -- all enjoying a pleasant outing while the White family sits through yet another of the show's now-signature family meals nearby. "That's the whole point," Hutchison tells me. "They're surrounded by families."

Of course, having all those people eat and interact with each other while trying to pick up whispered dialog presents certain challenges. As the extras take their seats at tables throughout the restaurant, First Assistant Director Nina Jack addresses them: "I'm going to ask you to do one thing," she says. "It sounds easy now, but it's going to get really hard later on: No talking." Throughout the scene -- and for the rest of the day -- the extras will be eating, smiling, laughing and chatting with each other all in complete silence.

The cameras are set up on a stage separating the dining area from the bar. Typically, the stage would be set for a live band, but in a bizarre role reversal the stage is ready to watch the performance in the audience. When the cast arrives, the extras cheer. Bryan Cranston walks around the tables introducing himself. When he gets to a family with two young boys, he pretends to sneeze in their food.

The actors take their seats while Arthur Albert -- filling in for Slovis as this episode's Director of Photography -- measures light levels. Dean Norris is seated across from Bryan Cranston; Anna Gunn faces Betsy Brandt.

When Slovis yells "Action," the principal actors drop into character. The background actors begin silently mouthing to each other, smiling and taking bites from their meals. They've begun what will become an eight-hour marathon performance of four pages of script.

Check back next week to read Part II of the on-set report.

Here's the flood control dam where they were shooting. It was also featured in a brief scene in Terminator 3. The night scene where John Conner climbs up the face of the dam and peers over the top and sees the big Terminator factory in the distance.

Osuna Rd. T's into JT from the left, where the L-R arrows are. I used to ride my bike along JT when I lived nearer there. Some of you have been past the dam when we went to the Flying Star for breakfast at the second Albq. reunion.
