They both have a 9.4 on imdb but I don't know anyone who would put The Wire over Breaking Bad. If The Wire were to come out today it would not rate as highly in comparison.
No, it just requires a brain to be able to enjoy it.
Yes, I'm clearly too dumb for it. Ape and I tried to watch it two separate times about 1-2 years apart. I think both times we made it most of the way through the first season before we couldn't take it anymore. Terrible characters, boring story line, and just... blech.
Someone here or on twitter suggest I watch The Killing. I'm on season two and the shit just drags onnnn and onnnnn and ooooooonnnnnnn! Ugh
How can a police department accidentally accuse like 50000 diff people with the same crime in 14 daaaays! Gawd!
