No, not all of us wanted to see the main character in Breaking Bad prevail.

If you remember in that show- the pilot episode essentially made a 'promise' with the audience that Walt was going to die. They fulfilled that promise at the end of the series.

It was the ending that show deserved, as well as the audience.

I thought this was a pretty good series. It has one of the widest Rotten Tomatoes critic ranges I've seen: Critics rate it 27% while regular viewers gave it a 91%.

I've really liked Helix so far. Thanks for the recommendation. I always get a chuckle out of the opening theme elevator music. Peaky Binders is on the list for post Christmas viewing.

Pretty shocked how good this show is. There are portions that exceed popular movies.

It's not perfect, but it's done quite well.


Another one that has completely entertained me is the Swedish version of "Wallander" which are 90 min episodes, so each one is like a movie. The actual Swedish actors probably makes it more interesting for me and it's quite believable.

I watched the first two episodes back to back then had to take a break. I like it but it's very disturbing, esp the second episode.

I can't watch some shows due to some of this. It's not the gore, but some of the sadistic nature as well as some of the raw grit.

if this is the case don't watch black mirror. It explores the darker side of "normal" people. The first episode didn't really bother me (it seemed to be more of the "shock value"), except for the last scene but the second one did

Spoiler below in white
The second episode really wore on me because it is basicly about a man who gives his all trying to do the "right thing" and ends up becoming what he was fighting the whole time...

Watched the Secret State of North Korea documentary last night. Interesting look at Kim Jong-un's regime and how defectors are trying to smuggle illegal technology back to NK to try and start chipping away at the regime's influence.

Up next: Korengal

I agree with many on here about Breaking Bad. That show makes me sick because of the drug culture, but it is one of the best series I've ever watched. One comedy not many people I know watched was Psych. Psych is one of the funniest and well written shows in the last 10 years. I put it up there with Seinfeld and Everybody Love Raymond.

heads up, if you have netflix and enjoy much of the BBC content they have, might want to let them know. The licensing agreements between the two have not been renewed and die on the first of Feb.


***disregard, just spoke to netflix cus serv and they said the license had been renewed
