I enjoy both 'TWD' and 'Breaking Bad' (thank you AMC and streaming Netflix!). BB is slated to launch season 5 in July... I'm really looking forward to it.
Actually it's the continuation of the last and final season.
A handful from the first season and a handful from the second season. I simply couldn't get into it at all. I found it very boring and just not good.
I have no idea why any of that matters or gives any credit to or takes any credit away from the show or why people do or don't like it.
Those 1st two seasons were very good. There wasn't a lot of action in those 1st 2 seasons but that isn't what the show is about. My advice is when the series wraps up continue watching past the 2nd season because things definitely pick up. You seem to be a person who doesn't like a lot of story, build up to something which is what BB is about. Seasons 3,4, and 5 you get a lot of this but there is a build up to it. A lot of your complaints about BB are what I haven't liked about Walking Dead. With the exception of the last half of season 2 and the first half of season 3, the show has been very boring, the storylines don't lead to anything and not nearly as good of a plot, acting as BB. That
I guess its just a difference in tastes, but I've heard similar about Boardwalk Empire. "stick with it, it gets better."
Whats wrong with expecting a show to be at least mildly entertaining every week?
I agree, and if it is not entertaining I tend to bounce pretty quick. Boardwalk Empire did not make it to a second week in my house.
There's nothing wrong with it as long as there is a plot and it's well acted. It depends on what is mildly entertaining to you or me. Mildly entertaining to one person may be watching someone getting killed every week and another person's entertainment my come from watching a good story or stories being played out over multiple episodes. That may be boring to others but not to me if it leads to something.
And so what if you heard similar about Boardwalk Empire, which is a very good show also. You act like well if someone said this about one show then all the other shows must be the same way. No, each show is obviously very different.
That wasn't really my point. Boardwalk lost me because nothing ever happened. I tried to watch until the end of season 2, but it was just too much of a chore. Yes every show is different, but you can make a lot of comparisons between Season 3 of TWD, Season 1 of Boardwalk, and even some of these early episodes in Season 3 of Game of Thrones.
