So when did shows such as Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead become soap operas on par with Days of our Lives, which famously brought back notorious villain Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo) from the grave, or The Young and the Restless, which killed off Adam Newman and revived him — with another actor (Justin Hartley) playing the role?"

On Wednesday's Inside the Actors Studio, Bryan Cranston got emotional when explaining his thought process behind a pivotal Breaking Bad scene.
