If you've managed to miss out on the "Breaking Bad" hoopla since 2008, allow AMC to catch you up.
The show's Comic-Con "Countdown Mashup" Trailer, which explains Walter White's transformation from Mr. Chips to Scarface, arrives just in time for the second half of the show's fifth and final season, airing Aug. 11.
The trailer takes viewers through the previous four and a half seasons in only two-minutes and 48 seconds. It opens with Walter (Bryan Cranston) addressing a handheld camcorder -- and his family -- just as he does in the pilot. Then it tracks a good man breaking bad.

And what will become of that empire? Tune in Aug. 11.
