‘Breaking Bad’ creator to appear on MeTV

MeTV fan Vince Gilligan, the creator of “Breaking Bad,” will appear on the Chicago-based TV network on Sunday to introduce episodes of his favorite classic shows.

“Vince Gilligan’s Island of MeTV” is scheduled to air from 5 to 9 p.m. Sunday. The episodes he’s presenting are:

• “The Twilight Zone”: “Nervous Man in a Four Dollar Room”

• “The Honeymooners”: “Better Living through Television”

• “Taxi”: “Cooking for Two”

• “Columbo”: “Murder Under Glass”

• “The Twilight Zone”: “The Grave”

He’ll be joined by Naperville North grad Bob Odenkirk, star of the “Breaking Bad” spinoff “Better Call Saul” on AMC.

“Shows like ‘The Twilight Zone’ and ‘The Honeymooners’ made a big impression on me growing up,” Gilligan said in a statement. “Now, decades later, I find myself staying up late into the night re-watching old episodes of those series and many more on MeTV. I’m thrilled to have the chance to share a few of my favorite shows with fellow classic television enthusiasts.”
