I watched through the first season of Breaking Bad over the last couple days. Really good stuff. As far as cable dramas go, Sons of Anarchy has it beat, but this show is no slouch.

That's contentious at best.

Whereas the amazing thing on BB is that somehow, you care about the protagonist, I don't see that Sons makes nearly as strong a case for the viewer to give a damn about the characters. It's Sopranos with flatter, less compelling characters and violence that doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the drama.

It's just violent because hey, it's biker gangs and this shit is cool, right? If people want to dig on it, that's fine, but holding it over BB is a bit much. Not that BB isn't flawed, but seriously: their being contemporaries doesn't make them competitors.

Sure is. You're just stating that Sons is better as though it's accepted fact, I'm presenting an opinion with support.

FTFY...or at least what I would have said

When I was in High School a friend got a 100% on a D.A.R.E. test and they gave him a D.A.R.E. duffel bag. Two years later, a drug dealer that was a friend of ours at the time asked to borrow something to transport 2kg of cocaine in and he handed over his D.A.R.E. bag. He brought it back to him with an oz of weed in it as a thank you.

Who's the touchy one(s) here? French Lick's the one masquerading goofy opinion as critical consensus, and then going a step further by not even supporting it. I'm a dick because I call it into question and give reasons why?

If you disagree, talk about the show. Don't just get pissy and point fingers.

Back to Sons, they got Ron Perlman and Peg Bundy. I watched parts of the first and second seasons because of those two. Peg especially, I owe her that much viewership. It's great that she's got work. So I like Sons in that respect, it provides Peg Bundy a paycheck. Otherwise, there's nothing to it, especially if you're stacking it against Breaking Bad.

Breaking Bad is probably the second best television drama of all time after The Wire. These things are all opinions, but there's a huge chunk of people who feel that way.

I don't even know why they are being compared. They're both good shows, with their own pros and cons. I, myself, prefer Sons over Breaking Bad. That's just personal preference, though.

Breaking Bad is incredible. I'm not much for keeping up with weekly shows and all that, but I started it on a whim thanks to Netflix. Now my wife and I were stuck because Netflix only had through Season 3. July 15 can't come soon enough. We'll likely watch them all before July 19 when Season 5 starts on AMC. Very few shows I care enough to watch the entire series for. Arrested Development, Breaking Bad, Twin Peaks, and uh...hmm...Veep, Life is Short? Those were like 6 episode seasons. Not sure they even count.

Breaking Bad Season 5 premieres the same day as Season 4 is put on netflix, It premieres July 15th. So, 13 hour marathon before the premiere is the only way :P

never seen breaking bad but the wire was too damn real for me. i dont even get that creeped out or disturbed by horror but something about that show made it hard for me to watch. cable definelty puts network to shame with the quality of its dramas.

SoA Season 1 is better than BB Season 1 but then BB hits its stride in Seasons 2 and 3 which are absolutely incredible. I still love SoA though. Top 5 show on the air right now for me and I probably enjoy watching it a little more even though I know Breaking Bad is the better show.

I enjoyed both - neither are going down as greats but the special effect are good and they are pretty mindless to enjoy when you wanna shut your brain off. If you liked 300, you'll probably enjoy immortals although i think 300 is much better.

Its been on there a while, but check out Being Elmo. Its about the guy that created and voices him. Its really freakin good. Kinda awesome seeing someone actually living their childhood dream

MOST DEFINITELY! Being Elmo is probably one of my top 3 documentaries of all time. Brilliant, brilliant movie. Incredibly inspirational, but then also humbling. Watched it twice, and would watch it again.

The addition of that avengers cartoon isn't just lame, it's horrifying. That cartoon was an enormous piece of shit. No, that's not even strong enough. It's quite possibly one of the worst fucking cartoons, EVER!
