Our weeklong celebration of AMC’s groundbreaking, seven-time Emmy-winning series Breaking Bad has finally arrived, and we’re like…

First up is Long Cook: A Breaking Bad Marathon, which kicks off tonight at 5:00pm. We’re showing all 54 episodes to date in just five days. Each of the four-and-half seasons will screen over the course of one day, running through Tuesday. We’re know you’re as pumped as we are and are probably getting ready with your friends like this…

…or this…

…or whatever. But this marathon is a long haul, so we encourage you to pace yourself. A few hours in, the adrenaline is sure to ebb.

And a few days in, you’ll really start to feel it.

But stay strong! Eventually you’ll push through the exhaustion and ascend to a higher plane of Breaking Bad awareness.

There are two important things about our marathon that we want to make sure you know. Thing one is that, each day, we’ll be raffling off a pair of tickets to the private premiere / advanced screening of the first of the show’s final eight episodes. You should probably put your plus one on speed dial.

Thing two is that a very special guest is going to be dropping by on Monday during our Season 4 marathon. We really want to tell you who it is, but we’ve been sworn to secrecy.

Finally, a few logistics. Complimentary tickets to each day’s marathon will be distributed starting one hour before the first episode begins. Space is limited, so if the Amphitheater fills up, a line will form that you can wait in until people leave and more tickets become available. You might want to bring some games.

In an attempt to keep things fair and orderly, we’re imposing a strict limit of one ticket per person in line. In other words, no cutting.

That’s pretty much the long and the short of it. There are a few more details (including daily start times) over on the Long Cook series page. We can’t wait to see your shining faces at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center tonight and all weekend long!
