That's an entirely different situation. For all purposes, Breaking Bad is airing as a 6th season. It had a regular break (season to season) after the last episode, TWD only will have a couple months. Plus, TWD didn't stop production, BB stopped for months on end. And TWD will not get 2 chances to be nominated for awards since it is all one season, but BB will get 2 sets of nominations for each "Half" aka really another season for all purposes other than it annoying fans and still calling it the same season. And both halves of the season will be drastically different and each half focuses on a different story.

Long story short: therefore, while fans and the creator may consider it to be all season 5, AMC considers it 5 and 6 while TWD is all the same season

Only a moron would think it's a new season. It should be common knowledge to all human beings that Sept/Oct is the new season beginnings.

Seriously? To tv addicts, it may be common knowledge, but to most people, that's obscure info. Sure, people have heard of a "fall season" of tv shows, but that doesn't mean that those people "know" there is no winter, spring, or summer season.

lol, reminds me of Sheldon(Big Bang Theory). If someone doesn't know the same things as you, it makes them a moron

[Show spoiler]p.s. I am, in no way, calling you a genius, like Sheldon. The only similarities is the lack of social skills.

Yes and no...

Lots of cable networks are running series that start in January... Psych is starting early in the year next series, for example.

Also other series (Falling Skies, Major Crimes) run in the summer.

So while the winter break is common for any show that starts in the fall... it is increasingly more difficult to peg a season start/end by the time of the year as networks are scheduling some stuff at different times of the year now.

Looks like Mazzaras exit could be due to money after all:

What's interesting is... how AMC gets teflon in these things.

AMC wanted more money from Dish... Dish was being greedy... Mazzara wants more money from AMC... Mazzara is being greedy?

How come AMC is never considered the greedy one when it all seems to favor them?

The thing with “creative differences” really bothers me if someone wants to take the show in a different direction than what Kirkman wants then there should be a change.
GO VOLS!!

He deserved more money for sure, if that is really what happened. He was helping control not only one of the biggest cable series currently on TV (and of all-time) but the show was bigger than most other network series as well. Why shouldn't he be entitled to a bigger slice of the pie?

It depends if he was clashing with Kirkman or not. Kirkman really seems to have a good sense of what works with differences between the comic and TV series.

I remember a lot of debate about
[Show spoiler]whether the walker Rick cut open ate Lori or not. I'm not sure if it was discussed further, but I'm here to confirm that the zombie did in fact eat her. Andrew Lincoln had an interview with Entertainment Weekly and was talking about how all of the kills were improvised and he felt bad for the guy playing the zombie who ate Lori. A week after the scene was filmed, the stunt guy had bruises all over his body from it.

well, yeah, that makes sense. But all of these budget issues in general always annoy me. Everyone ends up calling the actors or whoever greedy for wanting more from those in charge higher up at the network for example, but if the show is a giant hit and the network execs are making 10x as much, the actors should be pissed. They are the ones that are making people watch the show.
