    I couldn't even make it through the pilot.

    I guess it's just me, but I found it insufferably boring. Should I give it another try?

    Great show, not good. I wish they would have made more, but at the same time I don't.

    depends on what kind of shows you like. A lot of people claim that the show doesn't get good until around episode 4 or 5, but I was hooked from the beginning :dontknow:

    some guy did that to me when I got in to the first season of lost and I defriended him too.
    Baltimore Mike Started making threads about spoilers for the walking dead and I think they should have deaded his account.

    I just finished S5E1. I understand what one of the posters said about it being boring. During a lot of the first season shows I watched some eps at a faster speed (way before JD did that). I mean, THAT is the show---strong story, but it has those slow moments, like in real life, that we've been programmed to be intolerant of in our TV shows.
    The way Hein and Bababooey used to describe The Wire, I thought it would cure cancer. It's a good show. Very good, but I don't even know if it would make my top 10. Sopranos, Deadwood, Boardwalk Empire, Breaking Bad, The Shield,Sons of Anarchy,24, Walking Dead, Carnivale.....

    I get that some of these shows are 10-12 yrs old or whatever, but to make one of the biggest plot twists of the whole show your FB status is an utmost dick move.

    Love it and rematch the entire series at least once a year, if not more. So many great one liners came out of it. Love Omar, truly one of the greatest characters ever portrayed...indeed!
