Breaking Bad Creator Vince Gilligan Talks Series Finale

Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan knows what he wants — it just might not be what the fans want!

In a recent interview, the executive producer said there would be good news and bad news by the end of this year's finale.

The bad news is there won't be a movie, despite Bryan Cranston reportedly wanting to make one!

The good Bad news is that the ending won't be ambiguous AT ALL. So there won't be any room for water cooler wondering like the end of The Sopranos or Lost. Vince says:

Steven Spielberg Had No Idea People Watched Smash To Laugh At It

smash nbc laugh

Well, that's embarrassing!

Musical and television lovers world-wide had a love-hate relationship with the first season of Smash.

Part of the fun of watching the confused musical drama was complaining and joking about it with social media. Everyone knew that - or at least, everyone except the show's executive producer Steven Spielberg.

Steve, who came up with the whole idea for the show and pitched it to NBC exec Bob Greenblatt, had know idea people were laughing at his precious show.

When asked if he knew about Smash's social media phenomenon, the Lincoln director admitted: "No I didn’t."

Mildly heartbroken (we're guessing), Steve added:

Bryan Singer Is Rebooting The Twilight Zone For CBS!!

Filed under: TV NewsBusiness Blitz

bryan singer twilight zone reboot cbs tv news

With Fringe wrapping up, The X-Files scraping the bottom of the movie barrel, and the OG Twilight Zone being memorized by everyone through re-runs, this news is FANTASTIC.

And we think Bryan Singer is the right person to do it: The Twilight Zone is getting the reboot treatment on CBS!

We know, we know. You're tired of the rebooting, there aren't original ideas in Hollywood, etc. Well, at least they're rebooting a fantastic idea, even if it isn't very original.

Who wouldn't want new Twilight Zone episodes?

The only problem we see here is that it's landing on CBS, which isn't really the place to get modern programming. CBS was the home of the original show, but that was way back when. Letzzz be honest! Also, they don't have a writer for the pilot, and there's no real word if Singer will direct it after serving as developer and executive producer.

Oh, and we can't forget that it's been rebooted a few times already. The first was on CBS and ran from 1985-1989, with the most recent series reboot, hosted by Forest Whitaker (weird - LOLz!!), premiered on UPN in 2002 and lasted one season.

On a side note, just mentioning The X-Files makes us want to at least get a prequel treatment — a young Fox Mulder anyone??
