watching all of breaking bad
You think Breaking Bads boring but The Wire isn’t?
Someone take him outside and shoot him please.
In all seriousness there are some boring episodes but it really picks up after season 1, watching Pinkmans descent into madness was the best part, especially the part when he has to kill someone. Walts character was the least interesting.

yeah awesome prog, as above, a fair few ‘filler’ type episodes, but in all a really worthwhile watch.
for me it gets a bit too much ‘action’ based toward the end, and the suspension of disbelief really gets stretched to the limit.
some brilliant character development, Hank is a particular fave.Posted 3 years agoBoba FattMember
Only watched this recently, while it had its moments and there was times it was hilarious and shocking at the same time, I’m not sure it really was the best TV show of all time like a lot of people think it is, the ending was pretty disappointing really
But then that’s just my opinionPosted 3 years agoPhilbyMember
Borrowed the box set from a friend and watched two-thirds of season 1. It’s OK but not quite “the best TV series ever made” which many people seem to think. Will try and finish the series but at the rate I’m going it may be a few months to get through the remaining episodes.Posted 3 years agopaulosoxoSubscriber
I don’t really watch TV, and never watch any kind of series, yet watched this at two episodes a night and loved it. I thought the end of season four was the natural end, and probably would have been a better way to leave it. Series five seemed to just want to tie the loose ends up.Posted 3 years agoDezBSubscriber
Over-hyped for me I’m afraid
I haven’t seen any “hype”.. just read that a lot of people liked it. Pretty sure that’s not hype.Posted 3 years ago
I’ve still got this mentality of watching drama series once a week (like Utopia is at the moment, True Detective recently), keeps me waiting and doesn’t overdose me on it. Much prefer to watch stuff like that, so if BB was put on a channel once a week I’d probably watch it all.

Over-hyped for me I’m afraid
I’ve only heard it “hyped” by mates and only realised it had won so many awards recently.
Liked the first series dragged a bit in the middle but got better again. Caused me a bit of a dilemma coz I don’t like stories where the protagonist is a bit of a bastard, but still enjoyed it. Proper good. Cranston will always be Hal first in my mind.Posted 3 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
I liked it, but I think I got a bit of ‘burnout’ watching episodes back to back on netflix and now stuck about 2/3rds of the way through the last series.
Sons of anarchy is my current default “get in from a ride and zone out with food” TV. I think it benefits from having more characters, although some do get killed off rather bluntly, as if the writers know what the last episode in a series will be from the start, then bring in characters to make a story before killing them off after their story’s done, but they wait 2-3 episodes too late as they’ve just been in the background for a while.

Half way through the last series. I’m holding back on the last few episodes
Well… when I say I’m holding back on watching them. I absolutely loved the whole thing, but Mrs Binners totally lost interest in it, and would go along with all the ‘overrated’ comments above. So therefore my opportunities for sticking 3 episodes on back-to-back have been curtailed somewhat 😥Posted 3 years agonjee20Subscriber

We’ve just finished that, after Breaking Bad. Very good.
I really liked Breaking Bad, a lot of friends said that it just gets better and better, which I’d disagree with, peaks and troughs, certainly got seriously dark towards the end, from starting off pretty light, but worth persisting with.Posted 3 years agoCougarSubscriber
Would I like Utopia?
Utopia is hard to explain. It’s beautifully shot and incredibly stylish, brutal, with a conspiracy plot that David Lynch would be proud of. I found it compelling viewing but if you’re the sort of person who tends to watch TV in the background or has a distaste for the strange or the bloody then it’s probably not for you.Posted 3 years ago
