I'm down for saying Breaking Bad isn't a Soap Opera.

And PST, I don't ever get hooked on shows. They're mostly retarded. However, this show is one of the few that has caught my attention as much as my favorite movies/video games (which is saying quite a lot... putting video games in there).

Must say that it is very slow paced, and there is a lot to take in. Kinda like Opeth or Sigur Rós, since I couldn't imagine casually listening to either of them... you really have to absorb a bit of yourself in them.

If that analogy didn't get to you because you happen to hate both bands, then just WATCH THE SHOW PLZ.

As much as I don't care for either of the bands he mentioned, its true... abandoning all contempt of their elongated tiredness, Breaking Bad is like the pinnacle of all their greatest work, which, in the whatever of the whatever, is pretty good. I couldn't think of any other way to put it other than that.

Off topic, I know, but Opeth were great until they just started living off the trend they started. They should have pulled an Isis long ago and called it quits.

Soap operas are pornography without the cumshots/fisting. A long-running series isn't by definition a soap opera, and this applies to shows like Breaking Bad. Soaps are worthless, artless, meaningless drivel, and even when they try not to be they still are. The tethers anchoring a soap opera's characters and situations to reality are permanently pulled taught, and this is deliberate; the idea is to pique the most base aspects of our emotions and to allow us to wallow in them. Just as porn provides us with inspiration for better wanks with a slipshod story crowbarred in to give it some "context", soap operas provide us with indulgent emotional saturation. It's all inconsequential and instantly forgettable. It's the difference between the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and a mural in Belfast showing a man in shackles reaching up to the sky. They're both art, and they both have some place in our culture, but if one of them had to go I don't think even the most single-minded IRA man would put up much of a fight when his tawdry mural was scrubbed off the wall.

99% of the TV shows which come and go never appeal to me, because most of them are horseshit, but there's something about Breaking Bad which drew me in and kept me watching. It's the fourth serious drama show I've ever followed in my entire life, which is impressive to me at least! The show has its faults, the main one being that Walt White's character is given the green light to do things which wouldn't fly in any other show because he thinks he's dying. Another major fault is the tendency for massive coincidences to happen on a fairly regular basis, with certain characters crossing paths or affecting each other against the gravity of all statistical probability. However, the notion of a perfect, seamless piece of art is as big a myth as Fionn mac Cumhaill.

Epitome of soap opera is Bold & the Beautiful. I don't know what's the current number of episodes in Usa but here in Poland we have like 4000 and more, and that shit doesn' seem to end. I think I will die before these series.
The only good thing about this is archwhore Brooke. Slept with everyone, incest etc.

Well, Steven, Patick Duffy's character, who's Brook's father, is getting ready to bump off Stephanie Forester, but I bet he ends up shooting her sister, Pam, formerly of The Wonder Years, who he's tricked into thinking he's in love with, but he's just using her to get at Stephanie.
At least that was today's episode. I watch it with mom and have coffee and goodies with her.

When I was in Italy, everyone watched The Bold and the Beautiful. They knew America was ahead on episodes, so they'd pump every American for information on future plotlines. But, unfortunately for them, there is a very low level of intersection between the set of Americans who travel to Europe and the set who regularly watch soap operas.

Youse guys can't browbeat me into watching your show. Now I'll never watch! Nyaah nyaah nyaah nyaah nyaaah!

I feel your pain, people often come to me with questions about being fat and unemployed, but I'm too fat and unemployed to have formed any sound analyses of the problem! They'd be better off asking my old careers advisor, if it wasn't for her untimely suicide.

I watched the first feature-length episode of Twin Peaks, gonna start watching the main body of the series later. I only gave it a chance because David Lynch is fucking batshit, and Twin Peaks has pretty much influenced every psychological/survival horror game from Silent Hill onwards! It seems pretty bizarre and unsettling so far, so I'm thinking I'm gonna like it.

I liked Sopranos, Tudors, Family guy, Generation Kill (great show). I tried to watch The Wire but first episode bored me.

Haha I had the same experience with The Wire! The shows I've been watching lately are:

Breaking Bad
House
The IT Crowd (a British sitcom)
Frasier

I think you should like at least one or two of those.

I can either type up an answer or you can simply scroll up a little and re-read the post which prompted your soul-crushingly superfluous question which, paradoxically, is what has led us to this conversational purgatory

EDIT: Hmmm, that's probably the most needlessly cuntish thing I've ever posted here. I apologise.

I added Episode 5 to my Steve Brule post.

Any fans of Curb Your Enthusiasm? I honestly can't remember laughing out loud once during the entire series, but I still enjoy watching it for some reason.
