    I've never watched a single episode of BB. I fully expect to be disappointed since Gunny has high expectations.

    Also, Slade is awesome because he's an aussie.

    Have as high of expectations as you like- BB will meet them.

    I had extremely high expectations and I'm usually disappointed by them.

    For instance:
    Game of Thrones
    Mad Men
    Walking Dead
    True Detective

    boring, boring, boring, boring.

    Thank you for saying Game of Thrones and Mad Men are boring and overrated. I really tried to like them. I just couldn't.

    The Walking Dead I have been back and forth with. Loved the first season, hated the second and third, and I have enjoyed this season except for the most recent episode, which was an absolute waste of my time. I'm just curious to see how it ends (hopefully they only do one more season).

    I hope you are wrong about True Detective because I have high hopes for it.

    Been watching a new show on SciFI channel HELIX, good if you like scifi, also Hannibal is back on NBC, pretty good show. Of course WALKING DEAD, BREAKING BAD before it went off the air.

    The one thing I noticed about dunces list is if are add you probably wont like it. If you need splosions all the time definitely stay away. Bb definitely moved at a faster pace with things changing rapidly.

    Based on movie thread I consider myself to have stricter standards than a lot of posters. True detective, like game of thrones, deserves it's praise.

    I have pretty strict standards... and I don't require explosions all the time.

    Breaking Bad is not like that at all. In fact, the losers who hate it say it moves too slow... because they enjoy terrible movies like the The Expendables and TV shows like Criminal Minds.

    Has been for a long time.

    True Detective is pretty well-written and I like the idea that every season is a new case, new characters, without any connections to the previous. - If only they keep that promise.

    I'm only one episode in- but if you think there was ANYTHING in that one to make you watch episode 2, you'd probably enjoy spectating paint drying.

    I'm still open to change my mind, but the next episode or 2 better have SOMETHING happen. Not just Matthew Mchaugnahey sleep-walking through dialogue.

    Every episode has something happen, MM is pretty damn good in this show.. it's STORYTELLING, and it's damn well done.
