What does that mean, exactly? Well, first of all, it means that he won’t leave us hanging. There will not be a frustrating, open-ended finale where we’re left wondering if Walter White will live or die. This will not be The Sopranos. Vince Gilligan, in an interview with The Daily Beast, however, would not offer specifics, saying that he doesn’t want to tip anything off. However, on the finale, Gilligan did say it is “victorious.” “I’ll say this much,” Gilligan began. “I’m surprised by how victorious, in a certain sense, the ending feels to me.” When I think of “victorious” and Breaking Bad, the first image that always pops into my head is this:
Gilligan also added, on the finale: “I was very nervous for the last year that we didn’t have an interesting enough way to wrap up Breaking Bad,” he confessed. “I have to say that we were in the woods for a long time with these final eight episodes. Creatively, I felt like I couldn’t see the forest for the trees, and I was sort of trying to hack my way through the jungle of this story.” But eventually Gilligan and his team found what sounds like an ideal solution. “I’m very proud of these final eight,” Gilligan said Monday. “They go like gangbusters. There is no downtime in them. We are racing to the finish. I think they end the show in as satisfying a manner as we could possibly come up with.” Gangbusters. Satisfying. No downtime. Racing to the finish. Good God, that sounds perfect. The final eight episodes begin in 103 days.
Iron Man 3 opened in 42 international markets this weekend, exceeding some of the records that were recently Hulksmashed by The Avengers. Iron Man 3 grossed an estimated $195.3 million in those 42 markets, compared to $185.1 million in 39 markets for The Avengers last summer. It also had the largest opening weekend ever in eight markets: Argentina, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Vietnam, Taiwan, Philippines, Malaysia, and Singapore. Right now The Avengers is the third highest-grossing film ever, and Iron Man 3 may be exceeding it if it keeps up this pace. Tony Stark has just one thing to say.
Local media in San Diego is already clowning on Manti Te’o. The San Diego Union-Tribune cartoonist invoked a imaginary girlfriend joke after the team selected the linebacker in the second round. Of course, Te’o's fake girlfriend is supposed to be dead. If you’re gonna mock him, do it right. He should be digging a furtive grave in the sand while saying that line. Do I have to do your job for you?

FoxSports – I was taking a picture of myself in the seats above the Green Monster during Red Sox batting practice. Producer Art Dryce had called out ‘heads up!’ a few times while I was taking pictures around the left field section, but none of those balls actually fell close to me, so I took my chances turning my back on batting practice for a picture. My whole family is from Massachusetts, and I knew they would be so excited to see me working at Fenway Park, and when I went to text them the picture I noticed the baseball by my head!
Kenneth Faried was none too pleased with his Nuggets losing to the Warriors 115-101 on Sunday and the visitors locker room at Oracle Arena was the unfortunate recipient of some misguided anger. Faried reportedly did some kicking of the locker room walls following the final buzzer, and he definitely left his mark. Golden State now leads the playoff series 3-1.
