As you guys know, I love both The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones TV series. But lately I’ve been working my way through Breaking Bad (just finished the third season) and House of Cards (just finished the first season). Both shows are ridiculously addictive and yet I just bought a new TV series to work my way through this winter: HBO’s Rome. I’ve heard both good and bad things about it but it was on sale at HMV so I figured I might as well give it a try. If I totally hate it I can sell it to the used DVD shop down the street.
So what TV series do you guys follow? What would you recommend to other people? Why? Have you watched Rome? If so, how was it?
When I was browsing through HMV the other day I noticed that the first two seasons of Breaking Bad were on sale for $40 if you bought both of them. So I finally decided to see what all of the fuss was about with the show and bought them for myself. I had watched the first episode online and thought it was pretty good so I figured the rest of the show would be just as good. And thankfully I was right.
The problem is that now I’m hooked on Breaking Bad. It’s so good! It has some pretty poignant moments (Walt’s diagnosis, the entire Negro y Azul episode, etc.) but it also has some pretty morbid humour like when Walt and Jesse have to figure out what to do with Krazy-8 and Emilio. I have kind of a morbid sense of humour anyway so this series is perfectly suited to me.
I’m only on episode 10 of season two, so please don’t spoil things too badly for me. But if you’ve watched the show, what do you think of it? Are the next three seasons as good as the first two? Who is your favourite character?
