Breaking Bad

As it goes with most Breaking Bad promos, this teaser—featuring Bryan Cranston's deep and menacing Heisenberg voice reading the entirety of Percy Bysshe Shelley's “Ozymandias,” over eerily picturesque New Mexico desert vistas— is rather effective at leaving fans eager for more. The sonnet, supposedly inspired by a broken statue of Egyptian Pharoah Ramesses II, warns of the inevitable fall of once mighty kingdoms and men. So that can probably be taken as a hint, though not one that many fans likely needed.
