"I don't care" followed by numerous replies about why you're right... okay.

In human history. Now you're talking out of your behind. I don't know why you're arguing a personal opinion (and without seeing the other show to compare, which is relevant, of course), why this is so important to you - it's just a TV show, or why you're so aggressive to other posters lately. Whatever it is, work it out, shmenguin.


I'm challenging an opinion that everyone here seems to disagree with. I'm not going out of my way to pick on you or anything. I simply find what you said to be pretty outrageous.

...within the scope of talking about TV shows of course.

I am replying because shmenguin is taking it to a personal level or at least it feels like it. I also have a right to state my view. But I won't spend time going back and forth for the next 10 pages.

Why do you challenge a silly thing like this? I say my opinion, you say yours (regarding the show), and lets move on. If you want a challenge, go climb a mountain.

Scrubs is my all time favorite show ever. But I know it is not the best show in TV history... far from it. It's okay to prefer one show or another, but still be able to recognize that it's not the best thing out there.

This thread is silly. This board is silly. Yet here we all are. It's just a discussion. And I could have sugar coated whatever is bugging you, but I didn't expect this level of sensitivity since we're dealing with things that don't matter.

We agree on that. I rank both BB and Damages at 5 stars. Loved both.

You're right, it's silly. So let's forget this nonsense and move on then. :fist:

I been watching it on Netflix, this morning I bought the complete series on Blu ray. I only purchase physical movies/tv shows if I really like them. I'm only on season 2 and this was a no brainer.


I binge watched the entire series in under a month. I also own the whole series on blu-ray now and go back and watch occasional episodes from time to time.

Stuff is start picking up really quick....

The last two episodes of season 3 are two of the best in the whole series.

"Ozymandias" in the latter half of the last season may be the best 47 minutes of television ever written and put on TV.

You are in for a helluva ride.

I'm pumped, I always heard about BB but I didnt watch when it was still on cause with work and being back in school it was tough without a lot of time and I did not wanna play catch up. I kept wanting to get around and watch it, we have netflix but my fiance uses netflix more than I do. Stupid as it sounds I didnt even think of checking netflix to see if BB was on there. I watch an episode or 2 every night before I go to bed, my fiance goes to bed before I do and that way I can watch with the house being quiet and not being bothered lol Once I finish watching it on netflix then we are gonna start from the beginning on blu ray, ( I wanna watch the extras on blu ray). Every episode has been excellent and I see why this show has been rated so high.

I need to watch ozymandias again, but I remember feeling like the execution of the following episode was better. Ozymandias had the 2 big scenes and the phone call, but it wasn't as masterfully done as "granite state" IMO.

Also, the first scene in ozymandias should have been included in the prior episode. There's no convincing me otherwise. It was a rare mistake from the BB brain trust.

It was about this time last year that I started Breaking Bad after I got laid off. I would stay up until 4 and 5 am sometimes watching because when my eyes were shutting and my head was falling, something would happen at the end of an episode and I'm like, s**t, gotta watch the next one. It consumed my life cuz I just lost a job and it was still winter outside. I really miss that thrill ride.

Yeah, that was probably the best episode of the series. The roller coaster ride you're on.. the heartbreak, and the fact that your jaw's on the floor most of the episode. Yep.
