Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Just finished The Killing liked it a lot but not really the last season as much.

Breaking Bad, Homeland done

Was going to do Luther or The Wire next - can you tell me which one is best of the two?

On season 2 of BB now and it is decent, but many have this in their top 3?? That surprises me greatly, it's an okay show but surely no more than that.

It's probably why The Wire was a superior series because you could like/empathise with more characters

I agree, I think Mike was the only character I liked throughout the series

Spot on martin, we generally love shows where we love a character or all of them.

I just wanted the annoying cunt one to die all the time, the whiney addict prick.

Grumps
My take on BB - FWIW, probably says more about me.
While it was undeniably well directed, filmed and acted, I just couldn't develop any empathy for any of the characters. I found them all without any redeeming features. I just feel that without any connection - I just couldn't maintain my interest in any of them.
As I say, that's just my view.
Usual disclaimers.

Shame on you all, commenting on a dead man's thread.

Every programme you ever watch will have its critics or fans.

For me, I thought BB was massively average and I struggle to understand why anyone other than a drug addict would have it in their top 5.o

Started promisingly but then had a few seasons where fuck all happened, but then i loved the end.

The marmite saying was made for the show.

I think Breaking Bad was probably one of the first series for all this binge watching series we have now, yeah some of the episodes have some padding but there are some superb characters. As people have rightly said Mike and Gus and of course Saul which have crossed into the series Better Call Saul, which is also superb.

I recently binged the whole of BB, was good and some episodes better than others but I wouldn’t say it was the best.
And most definitely agree with the earlier poster re: the fly episode.

Watched Gomorrah since the weekend and have got to series 3 . It is excellent 9.5/10 , if your at a loose end give it a shot you could do worse.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Oh and Stranger Things season 3 is the best yet, especially if you love your 80’s nostalgia

You HAVE to stick with BB, brilliant show, and no spoilers but the “reveal” is emotional stuff.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
first season is slow and i know several people who gave up before finishing it.

but after that it gets exponentially better as it continues and every character starts losing all moral compass

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Jim79 - Sure, but folk have put this up there with The Sopranos, The Wire etc..so I'm expecting something special and I think that's fair.

Jim79 4:28 Tue Jul 16
Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
All opinions Manuel, I personally couldn't wait to watch the next BB. I loved the character development and the build of the story. Once Saul Goodman appears you will know what I mean.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Breaking bad starts slow but gets better and better throughout, except the fly episode that was awful.

Manuel 4:18 Tue Jul 16
Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Jim - You know how a judge a good show? It's when you can't wait until you watch the next episode. but with this I'm in no hurry. But yes, will stick with it just on the basis that so many people can't be wrong. I was just expecting something better though, so far..

Shows can be very good/interesting without loads of action btw..and I've seen plenty of them.

Jim79 4:14 Tue Jul 16
Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Manuel, just save your over riding view of it until you have finished it. A lot of the elements you may consider slightly tedious at these early stages are just setting the scene for later. Its not all action all of the time but its also not meant to be, if you want that then something like Sons Of Anarchy is more your bag (also brilliant).

Manuel 4:02 Tue Jul 16
Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Yea, not saying it's crap and I'm sure it will get better, but the best show ever?? There was a reason why it took me so long to get around to it.

Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
I wouldn't say Breaking Bad is average. More like a series of highs and lows. Most of the characters are great but White's whiny young sidekick and his boring family take up way too much screen time and there's a lot of tedium spread throughout those 60+ hours, not just at the start, although as said it does improve with the appearance of Gus and Mike.

Jim79 3:28 Tue Jul 16
Re: Tv Box sets thread again - recommendation pls
Breaking Bad does get so much better, becomes very dark as the seasons clock up and the character development of Walter White is sublime. The latter additions of characters such as Gus Fring and Mike is first class.

Gomorrah is one of the best things I;ve ever watched. The latest, 4th season, was the best yet and im just grateful that it is slated for a 5th.
