Designed and built in the 1960s by a Canadian ballistics engineering genius named Gerald Bull, the massive artillery piece today sits rusting amid encroaching foliage, on the island's southeast corner, just down a hill from the end of an airport runway.
Two Canadian dramas are aiming to bring a bit of cable edge to mainstream networks. "Pure" is a crime-drama whose premise might sound like a joke: The Mennonite Mob! While "Mary Kills People" is about a doctor who has an illegal side-line helping people commit suicide.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Two houses featured on the hit AMC-TV series "Breaking Bad" are up for sale in Albuquerque. A mother-daughter realty team said this week they are helping sell the home where the fi...
When I first heard the news that AMC was creating a "Breaking Bad" prequel, I couldn't conceive of a worse idea. How could you take the monumental "Breaking Bad," strip the storyline of iconic characters Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, and somehow craft something worthy of an entire series?
We're getting close to the premiere of "Breaking Bad" prequel "Better Call Saul." Here’s a first look at Canadian actor Michael Mando ("Orphan Black") as Nacho Varga in the much-anticipated AMC series...

The next time you love talking to a digital marketer will probably be the first time you love talking to a digital marketer. They blabber more than Steve Urkel and act less than Mark Hamill after Star Wars. These are the idiotic things digital marketers say that drive the rest of the working world crazy.
I'm not buying the "if you don't like it, don't buy it" argument. Images have an impact whether or not you allow them into your home. The more we normalize corseted costumes and Daisy Dukes, the more our girls will be attracted to them. I can tell my daughter that the "firefighter goes to the fetish club" costume is inappropriate, but when she sees a happy girl her age on the packaging, she's getting mixed messages.
NEW YORK, N.Y. - Toys R Us is pulling its four collectible dolls based on characters from AMC's hit series "Breaking Bad" after taking heat from a Florida mom who launched a petition campaign last wee...
Just when you thought "Breaking Bad" couldn't get any cooler, psychedelic British artist Ralph Steadman has added his trademark touch to the TV show. Steadman has teamed up with "Breaking Bad" creator...

The creators and stars of "Breaking Bad" made a triumphant final appearance together onstage at the Emmys Monday night after picking up five awards. The AMC show took trophies for Outstanding Drama S...
Canadian-raised writer Moira Walley-Beckett won an Emmy Award on Monday night for writing the gut-wrenching third-to-last episode of "Breaking Bad,'' entitled "Ozymandias.'' "Vince Gilligan, this is y...
The Emmys aren't given much credence these days, and are often derided as the cheaper, less reliable cousin of the Golden Globes. But let's be honest here: if any awards show is going to represent the opinions of the mainstream TV audience, the Emmys are probably the ceremony to do it.
It's almost the time of year when we celebrate the best and brightest of the 2013-14 television season. Mindy Kaling and Carson Daly announced the Emmy nominations on Thursday morning, live from the T...
Outside of the fact that every celebrated psycho-thriller of the past couple of decades had the same plot twist, there's a bigger problem at play here. There are so many ways to describe something you like, and the central plot twist should never be your opening statement. You're trying to express yourself (that's good!), but you're spoiling the hell out of whatever you describe (that's bad).
Basically the cord cutting decision comes down to how much you value brand new content or the social component of watching and discussing that new content with friends. The last episode of Breaking Bad was admittedly the big media event of last year. I'm patient. I'll keep the cash and wait.
A few weeks ago, American commentator Mike Gallay at Huffingpost listed the five greatest series in TV history as Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Wire, The Sopranos, and Twin Peaks. So, um, the greatest shows ever are largely about men, mainly crime dramas, and mostly aired in the last decade?
We get aggressively upset by people who haven't seen/heard/read the things we have. At a certain point, I got tired of bringing group conversations to a halt because I had only seen the first season of Mad Men. The lies started small.
Last Sunday, I spent Jesus's apparent day -- for the first time in nine weeks -- without Breaking Bad. Without Walter White or any of his tics, tendencies, or tacky style. Unlike most who watched Bad, I liked Walter White all the way. I liked him at the beginning, I liked him at the end, and I liked him at his worst.
Healthcare in Canada is anything but free. The average Canadian family of two parents with two children (similar to Walt's family in the drama) pays approximately $11,320 in taxes for hospital and physician care through the country's tax system, in addition to the cost of private insurance for things like dental care and outpatient prescription drugs.
If you think about many of your favourite American series, you'll realize how much the sense of place seeps into the story (U.S. series often put a place name in the opening credits montage). From Breaking Bad's premise arising out of the American health care system to True Blood with its southern drawls and back woods voodoo.
What better place to say goodbye to one of the best TV shows in recent memory than in the Hollywood Forever Cinespia cemetery in Los Angeles? (Well, OK, I concede it may have been a better fit in the deserts of New Mexico, but realistically that couldn't have worked.)
Whether you liked the ending or not, season eight's finale of 'Breaking Bad' will be talked about for the days to come. And now that the show's done, it's only a matter of time before fans display th...
Warning: If you haven't watched the Breaking Bad finale and are spoiler-averse, you should probably stop reading now. You've watched Walter White and Jesse Pinkman get into some sticky situations duri...
I am going to go out on a limb to predict this Sunday's final episode of AMC's Breaking Bad will be the best in breed: the best final episode ever. The show lives at a fever pitch which is 98% insanely compelling.
The moment you've been both dreading and getting excited for is almost here. I'm referring, of course, to the series finale of Breaking Bad this Sunday. This "blue meth" inspired drink is lovingly nicknamed "The Heisenberg" and may just be the perfect drink to accompany your Breaking Bad viewing.
Along with half the population of the western world, Stephen Harper and Industry Minister James Moore will be glued to the TV Sunday night for the final episode of "Breaking Bad." "I am a huge fan— as...
The countdown is on to the final episode of "Breaking Bad", surely the most highly anticipated climax since Tony Soprano hung up his spurs. In Vancouver, as part of the Vancouver International Film Fe...
Breaking Bad is about Walter White, an average man who turns to crime when faced with insurmountable medical bills (to put it lightly). I'm guessing no character in Breaking Bad ever commented: "Gee, Walt, you ever think how if you'd been born in Canada, or Europe, your life might've been different?"
This is why "Breaking Bad" would never happen in Canada. The comic was created by Christopher Keelty, a writer and occasional cartoonist who lives in New York City. The inspiration, according to Kee...
Excitement for Vince Gilligan's onstage Q and A just two days before the final episode of "Breaking Bad" airs on Sept. 29 is building in Vancouver, with the news that asking the questions will be none...
The 65th Emmys nearly are upon us , and we'd be an embarrassment to our DVD collections and "Breaking Bad" analyses if we didn't pay homage to the awards in some way. So to celebrate, we've taken a lo...
The writing may be on the wall for Walter White, but “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan is still very much alive to tell the tale. And he’ll be doing just that as part of the Vancouver Internationa...
