Breaking Bad's final season (half-season, technically) finally has a start date: Mark your calendar for Sunday, August 11. Mark it with a happy face because yay, Breaking Bad is back! But also mark it with a sad face because boo, Breaking Bad has only eight episodes left. AMC also announced today that they'll air a weekly BB postshow called Talking Bad, à la the post–Walking Dead show Talking Dead, albeit with a less on-point pun name.
