  1. Yet another great interview by Adam! On another note, is it only me or is Vince Gilligan a dead ringer for Lord Baelish (Littefinger) from Game of Thrones?

  2. Adam Savage and Vince Gilligan talking candidly for an hour. This is freakin AWESOME. Tested is killing it lately.

  3. Great interview. I really wish you would have asked about how Walter’s hat was chosen. Who came up with that one? Were there other candidates? I think it would have been interesting to know.

  4. This was fantastic! I haven’t really seen any other post-mortems from Vince Gilligan after the show ended so this was perfect.

  5. I just finished watching the series today. A two weeks of squeezing in episodes every free moment I had sprint to watch it. This is the first thing I’ve watched interview wise and it was awesome. I’m looking forward to going and finding more interviews with the actors and Vince to get more behind the scenes stuff.
