Hot Carl To Go: fireclown: They watch Breaking Bad, because it is a better show.Counterpoint: boobies.
K.B.O. Winston: Rent Party: gunther_bumpass: browntimmy: StrangeQ: browntimmy: quality TV.Hate to break it to you, but that is a contradiction.So what you're saying is it's impossible for a team of people to create a half hour or hour long visual narrative of any value whatsoever? If your beef is with commercials, it's 2012, there's ways around that now.Of course it's not impossible, but as a mere viewer you are contributing -zero- to society.Does the same apply to people that go to museums or sporting events?Without demand for these products, they would not be created in the first place.I'm looking forward to when he follows his train of thought to the logical conclusion about films and books as well./blanket statements dismissing an entire medium don't make you sound intelligent//just insecure///hell, even Newton Minnow pointed out how good Twilight Zone was
FirstNationalBastard: The Banana Thug: FirstNationalBastard: They wind up watching something decent, like Mad Men?I'm sure you'll get a couple of bites with that. Mad Men is overrated. A decent show, but nowhere in the same league as Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones.I watched the first season of Breaking Bad.Breaking Bad is nowhere near as good as the hype and fanboys would have you believe.
Oznog: [ny-image3.etsy.com image 430x413]Imma so old... when we were little, we had a TV which was really old THEN. Well, when someone wanted to be a passive-aggressive dick, they'd set the channel and pull out the channel knob and just hide it.The thing popped in and out easily. The way it worked, you couldn't even turn it with a screwdriver, it was an unslotted, keyed shaft. And it was set too far back to even grip with pliers. Without it that exact item, there wasn't any way you'd ever change the channel unless that person ponied it back up. And there was only one TV in the house here, and back in those days they didn't replay a lot of things on TV. A lot of them were one-shot things and of course it long predated Youtube, bittorrent, or DVD collections.

Mr. Toadcheese: Who wins this fight, again?Take your time, show your work.
gunther_bumpass: Of course it's not impossible, but as a mere viewer you are contributing -zero- to society.

Hot Carl To Go: Counterpointercount: it's a way to get the missus to look at naked chicks with me
vodka: He threw a remote at her and she calls the police? The human race is doomed, we're turning into a bunch of marshmallows for the vamps.
Noticeably F.A.T.: gunther_bumpass: Of course it's not impossible, but as a mere viewer you are contributing -zero- to society.So what? I contribute to society for most of the day. Sometimes I just want to sit back for an hour and let society contribute to me.
BATMANATEE: This is a bit off topic, but is anyone else watching "World Without End"? It's sort of GoT with the tits left to the imagination, and on a smaller budget.
libranoelrose: BATMANATEE: This is a bit off topic, but is anyone else watching "World Without End"? It's sort of GoT with the tits left to the imagination, and on a smaller budget.After the abomination that was Pillars of the Earth, I'm reluctant, but I have to watch, so I will.I've got 5 episodes to watch, I hope they don't fark it all up like they did with the first book.

meanmutton: Counterpointercounterpoint: The boobies in GoT are way sexier than the boobies in the vast majority of porn.
Night Night Cream Puff: Hot Carl To Go: fireclown: They watch Breaking Bad, because it is a better show.Counterpoint: boobies.Pointercount: watch porn if you want boobies
clyph: frepnog: But it wasn't impressive enough to bother coming back for season 2.In my experience, season 2 is usually when shows take off. If the first season has promise, season 2 usually rocks. They usually don't jump the shark or start coasting until seasons 5 or 6. ST:TNG, B5, ST:DS9, Buffy, revived Dr Who, Big Bang Theory, Mad Men, among many many othersOnly show I can think of off the top of my head that had a promising first season and immediately jumped the shark in S2 was Dark Angel.
