'Breaking Bad': Catch up with Walter White in new trailer

If you're curious about "Breaking Bad" but haven't yet watched the show's first three seasons, the first minute of the Season 4 trailer that's above is a rather nice introduction.

Those 60 seconds will bring you up to speed on the Walter White ( Bryan Cranston) we met at the start of the series and follow the man he's become up to the end of last season. Even for die-hard fans, it's a good refresher; the show has been off the air for more than a year, after all.

Then it's on to a preview of Season 4 -- sort of. A small amount of new footage in the second half of the trailer, but it's brief and interspersed with scenes from previous seasons. It's not that we want to know whether Jesse ( Aaron Paul) shot Gale or not -- we'd rather wait until the premiere to find out. But a little bit more new material would have been nice.

That said, though? Our excitement for the new season of "Breaking Bad" hasn't ebbed even a little. The series returns at 10 p.m. ET Sunday, July 17, and we're counting the hours until it does.

What do you think of the trailer?
