One of the best shows on television is AMC's Breaking Bad. While I'm sure you've heard the buzz about the show that stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Bob Odenkirk, Betsy Brandt and RJ Mitte…let me say it again: Breaking Bad is truly amazing television and if you haven't gotten the chance to watch it, buy the DVDs and catch up. You will not be sorry.
Anyway, at this year's Saturn Awards, I was able to speak with Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and Aaron Paul and we talked about this past season and what the future holds. The big news is while production usually begins in August, Gilligan reveals the show doesn't start filming until January as AMC is moving the show to the summer. What that means is…it's going to be a long hiatus. We also talked about how long the show might be on the air, does he know where next season is going, and a lot more. Hit the jump to watch the interview:

For my final interview from this year's Saturn Awards, I saved one for all you Lost fans. That's because hanging out backstage after the show was Lost co-creator Carlton Cuse and co-executive producer and writer Adam Horowitz. Even though they had been talking for awhile and I missed out on some of the interview, I did manage to ask if the big Lost DVD/Blu-ray box set arriving next month is really the final one and I also asked why wasn't writer Bryan K. Vaughn involved in the final season. It's been a big mystery among the fans. Also, in case you weren't aware, on the DVD/Blu-ray big box set is a 12 minute coda to the series. Cuse talks about what you can expect. If you're a fan of Lost, this is a must watch interview. Hit the jump to check it out and I really hope you've enjoyed all the video interviews I managed to land at this year's Saturn Awards.

Rod Lurie Video Interview Saturn Awards 2010 - For more movie news and interviews go to h -At last week's Saturn Awards, we managed to interview writer-Director Rod Lurie backstage after he won the award for Best DVD Release. While many of you might have missed his movie Nothing But the Truth which starred Kate Beckinsale and Vera Farmiga, it's a fantastic film with amazing performances. While it might be a bit out of place at the Saturn Awards as it's not geeky or sci-Fi, I'm happy he won for this very overlooked film. Anyway, after talking for awhile about Nothing But the Truth, we eventually got to what's going on with his remake of Straw Dogs. He talked about editing the film, the violence, what can people expect, and I asked him when will a trailer or poster be released. He went on to tell me the film features a 25 minute action scene at the end of the film and it's a hard R. We also talked about the TV show he's developing with Kevin Spacey as a cult leader and what else he's working on.

If you've been reading Collider for any length of time, you know we're all huge fans of NBC's Chuck. While getting any show on the air is hard, getting more than one season is even tougher. That's why I'm beyond excited that Chuck is coming back for a 4th season this fall. And it's not just because Zachary Levi and Joshua Gomez say "Collider" like 10 times during the interview you're about to watch. It's because both Zachary Levi and Joshua Gomez are awesome together on screen and they're both extremely grounded and two of the nicest people I've ever gotten the chance to interview. Also, they both waited around at last week's Saturn Awards until Guillermo Del Toro was done doing interviews so they could get their pictures taken with him. How many people would have done that?
Anyway, during my backstage interview with Levi and Gomez, they talked about last season and the way things changes on the show. They also talked about the upcoming season, Comic-Con, will they change the Tron poster in Chuck's bedroom to a Tron: Legacy poster, how disappointed they are that GDT isn't doing The Hobbit anymore, what did they see and love about this year's E3 (they're both gamers), and a lot more. If you're a fan of Chuck, I promise you'll love the interview.
Here's the time index:
Were they nervous about the show coming back and were they reading the trades every day to get any info
1:35 - We talk about the past season and what is coming up next season
4:55 - Will the Tron poster be changed to Tron: Legacy in his bedroom and is it up to how good the movie is on whether or not it will get changed. Levi talks about how he tried to get an audition on Tron: Legacy
6:30 - They got picked up for 13 episodes and they explain they could still get the "back 9" (meaning 9 more than the 13) or it could mean get none.
7:10 - What was cool about last season was the way all the characters had new things to do, how was that to film
8:30 - They talk about how disappointed they are GDT is not doing The Hobbit anymore
9:15 - E3 talk - what did they geek out over at this year's convention. They mention Rage, cutting lines, the Nintendo 3DS, games they're going to buy, Halo Reach, breaking technology like the 3D games, the Playstation Move, and more
12:50 - They start filming next season July 19, Comic-Con, and what surprises are they planning on for Comic-Con, and will he bring the fans across the street to Subway for food
