    I think it's probably not as cut and dry as that - more of a balance or a just-right recipe - but I do agree that writing is paramount. It's easier for so so actors to pull off a great script than it is for great actors to bring life to mediocre writing. Sooooooo much has to do with technical aspects, too. Editors are storytellers. Cinematographers are storytellers. The special shows - for me, MASH, Soparanos, west wing, the wire, breaking bad, sports night and others - are the whole package, and they positively SING. That's art.

    ***SHERLOCK SPOILERS***

    Sherlock was great, but lost its way for a while starting with the third series and the bizarre Mary storyline...thankfully, they literally shot it to death. Luther has been outstanding all the way through.

    im honest and straight to the point. would you rather i be condescending? I'm ragging on network tv. stop whining. the big picture is you want me to watch your tv show and ask others to do so. i don't want to and I've given you my reasons. if that makes me less human in your eyes so be it .

    So everyone's a piece of the puzzle but the writing is very important. I see that. I just think that actors are over-rated and mostly interchangeable. I can think of a few actors who would be able to play Walter and Skyler White and not have it affect the quality of Breaking Bad.

    Spoiler alert for anyone who's still in the dark ages and hasn't seen Breaking Bad: One of the things that I noticed about Breaking Bad was all of the times they would concentrate the camera on one small item or incident and how that would come into play later, sometimes even in later episodes.

    -The doll's eye floating in the pool.
    -The way Jane described the dangers of lying on your back after getting high.
    -The green box-cutter that Gayle used to open the new cooking equipment that later became the one Gus used.
    -Ted tripping over the rug harmlessly and then later for real.
    -Walt looking at the WW book as he moved back into the house only to have Hank see it and blow the whole thing up.

    There are others but you know what I mean. There was some great stuff there if you really paid attention to the details.

    LOL, not at all. It's not a matter of honest and straight to the point. It's deciding to be a dick about it. If you want to dress it up as candor, go ahead. We live in a society.

    That's a very good and entertaining show, and it's definitely top 5, but it doesn't even surpass HBO's other epic fantasy drama - Game of Thrones. Not yet at least.

    Better Call Saul has better writing and better character development than any other show currently on TV, and is arguably better than, or at least equal to, Breaking Bad.

    This sounds like a BB vs Brady debate.

    I don't understand why a TV show would out of the gate tell 50% of the country they don't want them, or want to lecture them.

    I was selected as an extra in the Patriots Day movie. I saw myself during the bombing sequence. I'm the guy the blue hoodie circled in the uploaded picture. I know, I know, it's dark, but I'm officially one degree of KEVIN BACON!!!

    See, I don't agree there. It could be because I never really got into GOT but, based on what I've seen, WW has superior writing, acting, and directing behind it. It's the best show on TV already. But, again, that's just IMO. That said, I don't see how it has anything more than two to three seasons left, unfortunately.

    I'll take Brady and the writers in a double action reverse, if there's still such a thing in betting.

    Best Shows Ever in my book
    1) 24
    2) Dexter

    I also had a weird fascination with The Man in the High Tower, but its the first show I ever binge watched, so that might be why.

    The only show I've watched recently was the Once Upon A Time series. I watch football with my son and OUAT with my daughter. It actually is a fun series to watch. The earlier seasons were the best and were well written. Now I think they are running out of material.

    In the past, for me, I would watch House and maybe the occasional CIS episode.

    I unfortunately got stuck on the Secrets of Oak Island crap. So I guess I watch that too.

    There's still an area where WestWorld falls well short of Game of Thrones - character development. I don't think either show has any decided advantage in any other area.

    But it doesn't even come down to those two. Better Call Saul is better than both. It may not get a lot of love from the audience (neither did The Wire when it first aired, and that was the best show of all time) but critics have been on point with their acclaim. Looking forward to Gus making an appearance in season 3.

    Yeah, I have to catch up on BCS but that show is great as well. Breaking Bad was a masterpiece.

    Why chime in at all though? The guy is asking for a favor, if you didn't want to do it just ignore the thread. The fact you don't seem to get that is the issue.
