An unscripted series about a family-owned private security company in Ringgold, Ga., might be an unlikely follower to AMC’s grippingly dark Breaking Bad. But those who stuck around and actually watched the series premiere of Small Town Security (11 p.m. Sundays, AMC) got a glimpse at true TV gold.

teacher/part-time car washer Walter White was faced with this grim
conundrum, he sought out a former student-turned-delinquent and created a

each character’s performance is spot-on.
Nightmare Season is upon us as AMC's chilling zombie show The Walking Dead returns. A record-setting 7.3 million viewers tuned in last night to see Rick, Lori, Shane and the gang continue their apocalyptic journey.
