Judging by this first trailer for AMC upcoming series Halt and Catch Fire, making personal computers in the 1980s was very intense. There’s yelling, there’s glass breaking, and there’s sparking electronics. Talk about drama!

'The Walking Dead': See exclusive images from the season's penultimate episode

The penultimate episode of The Walking Dead’s fourth season is almost upon us! But you don’t have to wait until Sunday night to get your fix. We have a few exclusive images from the episode for you right here. (Click through all three pages to see them all!) First up is Rick Grimes rocking his new iconic look from the comics with the white shirt and fur-lined jacked. Looks like Rick is also rocking a growing beard and a heavy piece of artillery as well. But who — or what— is he looking at? Terminus, perhaps? (Click here for the full uncropped version of the photo.)

'Mad Men' teaser: Time for a 'Breakdown'? -- VIDEO

Not everything about Mad Men is retro in the latest teaser for the first part of season 7. The clip shows the Mad crew slo-moing through an airport in an era where air-travel still represented a certain amount of luxury — but the accompanying song comes from British soul singer Alice Russell, who hadn’t even been born when Don and Roger were still ogling stewardesses flight attendants. The song, “Let Go (Breakdown),” is hardly a year old. (Will it irk Matthew Weiner that Russell’s tune was already co-opted by The Blacklist? Yes. Yes it will.)

Still, “Let Go” does capture a certain vibe that suits AMC’s drama, and its cryptic lyrics evoke possible themes as the show enters a crucial season of change: “I’m familiar Jenny / Missed them signs / I bare my positions / Flip over time.”

Watch it below, and make of it what you will. READ FULL STORY

'Mad Men' season 7 teaser: Don Draper leaves us wanting more -- VIDEO

In typical Mad Men fashion, this just-released first-look teaser of the Madison Avenue drama’s upcoming seventh season is purposefully, extremely vague.

The clip — which lasts a mere 15 seconds — shows Don Draper (Jon Hamm), looking his usual dapper self in suit and hat, disembarking a TWA jet in slow-mo, while Wax Tailor’s jazzy version of “Que Sera” plays in the background.

Inevitably, we’re still left with questions. Where has Don landed? Where did he come from? Has he returned to Sterling Cooper & Partners after being ousted in the season finale? Where’s Megan?

We’ll have to speculate until Mad Men returns April 13 on AMC. READ FULL STORY

Nico Vega reinvents 'Bang Bang' for 'Bonnie & Clyde' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

If Bonnie & Clyde had to have a theme song, chances are “Bang Bang” would be an apt title to sum up the doomed duo, who are being revived once more for A&E’s miniseries event this winter.

The four-hour, two-part series (set to air Dec. 8 and 9 on A&E, Lifetime and History) stars Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger as the notorious pair of Depression-era outlaws. In anticipation of the movie event, A&E has just released this video of rockers Nico Vega re-interpreting the classic Nancy Sinatra melancholia “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down),” which was itself a cover of a hit for Cher.

Though the song has been used in film multiple times since Sinatra’s 1966 recording (notably in the opening credits of Kill Bill), Nico Vega’s uniquely rock-tinged cover (available on iTunes) is certifiably haunting. Check out the exclusive video below to get a look behind the scenes as Nico Vega lays down the track, interspersed with some premiere clips of Bonnie and Clyde. It’s bloody fantastic!

Mireille Enos talks 'Killing' season 3 finale: 'I don't know what other choice Sarah would have made'

If last night’s two-hour season finale of The Killing put fans through the wringer, it shredded the very fabric of Detective Sarah Linden’s being. Mireille Enos, who’s garnered Emmy and Golden Globe nominations playing the stoic yet fragile Linden, had her work cut out for her as Linden was faced with a spirit-crushing revelation about the identity of the Pied Piper serial killer. By episode’s end, Linden was at a crossroads that surprised even Enos. Below, she discusses how she found her way into Linden’s mind during the tense episode.

SPOILER ALERT, Killing fans who haven’t caught up on DVR yet: Do not read any further!

'Breaking Bad' at Lincoln Center: Bryan Cranston's 'BrBa' tattoo, RJ Mitte's fake spoilers, & more

Like father, like son, eh?

During a Times Talk with the cast of Breaking Bad Tuesday, Aaron Paul revealed that one of Bryan Cranston’s favorite on-set pastimes was taking advantage of Paul’s tendency not to read ahead in the scripts — by making Paul believe that his character was about to die. (Yo, bitch: Not cool!)

And at another event held in New York City last night, RJ Mitte — who plays Cranston’s kid on AMC’s drama — explained that he, too, loves messing with people by lying about what’ll happen next on Breaking Bad. “I just say random, horrible things about everyone,” the actor explained with a big smile. “Anything you can think of.”

More specifically, what has Mitte tried to pass off as fact? “That it was all a dream. That we wake up on the island. That everyone’s dead, and Jesse and Walt are lovers. That baby Holly dies.”

'Breaking Bad': Did Bryan Cranston just reveal Walt's fate?

Among the countless questions waiting to be answered in the last eight episodes of Breaking Bad — how does Walt end up on the lam? Will Hank be able to catch his criminal brother-in-law? How many more times will we watch Flynn Walt Jr. eat breakfast? — one looms larger than the rest: In the end, what will happen to Walter White?

Will he die in a bloody shootout, or finally succumb to lung cancer, or end up in prison, or be placed in witness protection and given a whole new family — ultimately revealing that Breaking Bad was just an elaborate prequel to Malcolm in the Middle? This last theory was actually floated at a New York TimesTalk with the cast and creator Vince Gilligan tonight. “That may not be as far fetched as you imagine,” star Bryan Cranston joked in response. “DVD extras!”

We won’t know for sure until September 29, when the celebrated drama’s final episode airs on AMC. But during tonight’s event, Cranston did pose an interesting hypothesis of his own — one that could say a lot about where we leave Walt.

'Breaking Bad' teaser: Look on Walt's works, ye mighty, and despair!

The bad news: There is no footage from Breaking Bad‘s final eight episodes in the following teaser.

The good news: The teaser does contain evocative images of locations featured in AMC’s drama — the vast New Mexico desert, a busy Albuquerque street, a telltale green and yellow Vamanos Pest Control tent — fading in and out as Bryan Cranston recites Percy Bysshe Shelley’s sonnet Ozymandias, a tale of hubris and fallen empires. The clip’s the sort of thing that would seem pretentious coming from another series — but for Breaking, it’s just right. Check it out below:

Peter Sarsgaard on his 'Killing' character's end: 'I don't think he thought he deserved salvation'

In a bold move that shocked The Killing‘s fans, showrunner Veena Sud wrote the execution of strangely sympathetic death row inmate Ray Seward into last night’s penultimate episode, “Six Minutes.” Taking place three years after Detective Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) was instrumental in convicting Seward, the Seattle police officer now believed she had the wrong man. Between fascinating conversations, they both hurtled through a taut 12 hours, trying to secure a stay of execution for Seward — even as unexpected evidence caused Linden to doubt her instincts seemingly by the minute.

Peter Sarsgaard, who’s delivered a string of consistently stunning performances this season as Seward, rode a razor’s edge during his character’s final episode. Between fits of rage, callous evasions, playful flirtations, even glimmers of uncontrollable joy, Sarsgaard delved so deeply into Seward’s emotional state that he literally blacked out at one point during filming. Below, the actor talks what surprised him most about Seward’s final day, tells the story behind his character’s meaty last words, and is somehow okay with getting called creepy in the grocery store because of the role.

'Breaking Bad' creator Vince Gilligan: 'I think most folks are going to dig the ending'

The first of the final eight Breaking Bad episodes won’t be unveiled until Aug. 11, but the show’s cast, plus creator Vince Gilligan, were on display at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills on Friday to answer reporters’ questions about the critically acclaimed AMC drama. Similar to the Breaking Bad Q&A session at Comic-Con, there was little information about the second half of season 5, though Gilligan, Bryan Cranston, and other cast members did touch on the finale, a documentary, and the possibility of a Saul Goodman spin-off, among other topics.

• Asked about how Gilligan and Cranston envisioned the ending of the show when it was being hatched in 2008, Gilligan couldn’t recall his original intention for the finale. “I couldn’t see that far ahead,” he says. “I couldn’t see the forest for the trees.” Cranston said that he recalled discussions about the design and transformation of the character, but “we never discussed where it was going to end up. It was just too big a subject. And as the seasons went on, I never found out. I never asked. I never wanted to know. The twists and turns of my character were so sharp that it wouldn’t help me to know. So I was just holding on, much like the audience was, week to week.”
