    Could still easily be a massive misdirection.

    I guess. But it's not like the whole series hinges on whether this character survives or not.

    @shooter Breaking Bad is good, but it's a distant second to The Wire. You're probably right about the others though.

    Or it could just be that, you know, BB and the Wire are together, there at the pinnacle of what can be achieved within television to date.

    Mind you, The Wire did have that slightly duff fifth season and BB hasn't had a bad one yet so on that basis BB could be argued to be slightly better...

    I think I'm going to just give up trying to get my parents to watch this. I bought them the first three seasons on DVD, and the conversation was like:

    "Oh, so what's this then?"

    "It's pretty much the best TV show I've ever seen."

    "Wow! We'll definitely put it on when there's nothing else on!"

    "...there's always something else on"

    "No, seriously! I'm sure we'll watch it at some point!"

    And so on. The other things they watch are talent shows and murder mysteries. And the news.

    Maybe I'll just keep the things for myself! :)

    A bit offtopic but i feel that Wire is harder to get in than BB.

    @Mola_Ram Pretty much my exact same experience.

    They watched it eventually and then were like 'I can't believe we've had this for ages and didn't watch it!' :rolleyes:

    Sounds like my parents as well but they would never watch anything I recommend but they would watch talent shows, murder mysteries and that piece of shit that is Deal or no deal, fuck that fucking program
  • Deleted user 18 May 2013 16:59:44
    Sorry but as great as BB is - and fuck me if it isn't superb - there are better shows out there. I'm enjoying the hype train as much as everyone else but let's not get ahead of ourselves.

    BB is far, far superior to The Wire, Primarily because we see.the.characters.change.

    Walt is a different man from the first series to the last, in 90% of TV shows the characters are relatively or only temporarily affected by the wild and ridiculous things they have to endure. BB nails every character, every plot development and keeps you guessing.

    Other shows feel massively undercooked or amateur in terms of their character development. Deadwood comes very close.

    @shooter Sons of Anarchy shouldn't be mentioned in the same breath as BB, it's a wish fulfilment cartoon for confused dads! (although I did enjoy the first few series.

    Heh :D

    BB is for me, miles ahead of anything else out there. The Wire doesn't even come close. Recently watched a bit of series 1 again and can't believe that Walt is supposed to be the same person, but that change happened so gradually you didn't really notice it.

    My take on it is that the cancer diagnosis did in effect, kill Walt as a person.

    Roll on August yo!

    I love BB, but it's no Wire. Not even close.
  • Deleted user 18 May 2013 18:12:09
    Yeah, it's not even in the same league as The Wire. As great as it is. Of course you see the characters change over time, because there are only about five of them! I can't bring myself to bad mouth BB as it is superb, but I can't stand these hype trains when they start spouting nonsense.

    I'd rate the Wire and Sopranos over Breaking Bad, plenty of other highly regarded TV shows I haven't seen too.

    This. Endless vs debates, reminds me of bloody Loaded/Total Film etc. I consider Deus Ex, Planescape Torment and Halo 1 (yes Halo, pfft :) my fave games of all time, and guess what, I can love ALL of them equally!

    Hate to quote the king of the combover Barry Norman, but I recall him saying anyone who could name a single, favourite film of all time.........hadn't watched enough films. Yup. Heard it when I was a kid in the 80s, he was probably the umpteenth person to say it or he read it in a Xmas cracker, but the point stands.

    Barring exceptional circumstances, most people don't change all that much.

    Character growth arcs are nice, but they're not totally necessary. The Wire didn't need them.

    The Great all-time arc remains Tony Soprano, IMO.

    Calling BB the Greatest is premature at this point. It might be heading in that direction, though.

    The Wire was great but had a habit of disappearing up it's own arse on occasion. Wouldn't be near my top five.

    Breaking Bad and The Sopranos are what I hold other shows up to.
