Phew, I'm not alone. It's like a support group.
Seriously though, "best TV show ever"?! It's not even the best thing on TV right now (Game of Thrones, Great British Bake Off, Grand Designs). As for series, The Wire, Sopranos, Generation Kill all knock it into a cocked hat; Deadwood is slightly better IMO, and Homeland just edges it.
My problems are:
- none of the characters are at all likeable. They don't have to be 'good' (look at Tony Soprano), but the viewer doesn't find themselves rooting for anyone, or wanting anyone in particular to come out of it alive.
- They're all annoying as funsticks. "Waah waah waah" from Pinkman, "I won't cook, I won't cook, I won't cook" from WW, just some kind of background whining noise from Skyler.
- They're inconsistent within the show's world. WW just veers from one stance to another, and back again, with no particular catalyst, reasoning or justification that the viewer can see. It makes it tough to follow, or to care about the characters.
- The plots are just so repetitive. Without wanting to give too many spoilers, it's really just a repeating cycle of interactions. By the final season you just want them all to shut up and go away, preferably in a big gunfight.
