As usual, last night's return of Breaking Bad brought much comfort and joy to everyone not named Walter White and/or Jesse Pinkman. But the experience of watching the season premiere was accompanied by more than a little sadness amongst those of us at home, seeing as how after the next eight episodes, we'll be bidding farewell to Walt, Jesse, Skyler, Hank and Saul (well… maybe not Saul) for good. Depressing though that thought may be, we're going to try and stay on the bright side by spending the next eight episodes picking our eight favorite things about each episode. To kick things off, here's our "8 for 8" for "Blood Money."

Rian Johnson Serves Up Scoop on Looper, Brick and Breaking Bad

Rian Johnson Serves Up Scoop on <i>Looper</i>, <i>Brick</i> and <i>Breaking Bad</i>

Setting a Philip Marlowe-like detective story, complete with pulpy dialogue and a twist-laden narrative, in high school sounds like a recipe for disaster. But writer/director Rian Johnson somehow pulled it off in his 2005 breakthrough Brick, a movie that's acquired a devoted cult following in the seven years since its release. Johnson himself has gone on to acquire a significant fanbase as well, through his work on movies like The Brothers Bloom and two terrific episodes of Breaking Bad, Season 3's "Fly" and Season 5's "Fifty-One." His latest feature Looper, which opens on Friday, reunited Johnson with his Brick star Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who plays Joe, a hitman living in a near-future where time travel is used by the Mob to get rid of any undesirables. These assassins -- or "loopers" -- are tasked with killing the people their bosses send back in time, a job that Joe carries out with relish... that is until he discovers that his next target is none other than his future self (Bruce Willis). On a recent publicity tour though New York, Johnson sat down to talk with us about time travel movies, whether he'll ever revisit Brick and if he'll be directing one of the finale eight episodes of Breaking Bad.
