    Boardwalk Empire and Breaking Bad are awesome.
    Walking Dead is ok.

    totally worth it IMO. Breaking Bad is on a different level than the other two -- but BWE and WD are worth watching. IMHO Breaking Bad ranks up with Sopranos and The Wire as the best series ever.

    I went about 20 years without watching a single TV show but I decided to see what all the hype was about and watched Breaking Bad and I was hooked instantly and watched the first 3 seasons on netflix pretty much in a month. Then I had to wait for the rest of them to come on. I think you would enjoy it.

    Boardwalk Empire is great too but not as good as Breaking Bad. It has great acting and plot twists but is slow at times and has a few too many story lines to follow occasionally.

    Walking Dead was great for the first season but has declined slightly ever since. I actually gave up on it a few weeks ago but a trusted friend told me it bounced back and is worth sticking with so I'm going to catch up this week.

    I used to wonder why Daveindiego was constantly talking about Breaking Bad. Then I watched the first episode.
    Marathoned the whole series to catch up to the last season. This series is in a league of its own.

    Me, too.

    that makes us special.

    nothing can take it away from us.

    I remember when I got an advanced screener of South Park and told people it would change television forever. 18 months later, it was the biggest thing on the planet and every cable show since says shit and talks about dick stuff constantly. We are a special breed of genius, my man.

    Maybe the best post I've ever read

    Everything Pony just said is 100% accurate

    I fucking hate television and I hate TV shows and I hate people who watch TV shows

    That said, I got through the first 3 seasons of BB in 5 days
