Oh and lets see if our championing of Breaking Bad can have the effect we had on the Wire.

I know we're not at all responsible for the popularity of that show round these parts but you and I and Andrew were talking that shit up a looooong time ago, it seems like

I think the world really caught on toward the end of the 4th season

LPTJ is only months away from being named the world's most influential culture taste maker by people magazine.

Yeah, I've said this before, but for the first three seasons I just kind of assumed it would be "Homicide" with swears, and since it was on a premium channel I didn't really make the effort.  I wish I had sooner!  

Also we quickly forget that it was much more of a pain-in-the-ass to pirate TV shows even 4 years.

"Breaking Bad" is good, but I think I need to rewatch the first two episodes sober.

Let's see if we can force HBO to bring back "John From Cincinnati"

Well see the problem with that is that the show actually has to be good

I don't think any amount of talk is gonna make JFC palatable to a wide audience like the Wire was


"was"

Damn

No, you're not. There are a lot of supporters/fans out there, but it definitely was not made for longevity, I think even you'll admit.

The idea of the forthcoming cop show annoys me for many reasons. Is all.

LPTJ did convince me to watch Battlestar Galactica. I have my mother and brother to blame for The Wire, though.

What's wrong with another cop show? I mean, I never watched NYPD Blue, but it was pretty good, right?

Nope. Not really. Sipowitz was pretty neat though.

In my eyes, Deadwood is the best thing HBO's ever done.

That and Carnivale.

Well, I must pipe up and say I was onto The Wire from the beginning (well, the DVD beginning, it didn't air at all in Canada the first few seasons), and wasn't blindly following any sort of tastemakers around here on that front, for I am independent!

However, I did only download Breaking Bad because of this thread.

Oh, and Friday Night Lights, too.

Also, I just got a DVD player that'll play video via USB, so I'm watching Weeds direct from my iPod on my telly. That's pretty sweet.

before i actually watch that show someone needs to tell me what the name "breaking bad" is all about, because something about it is really irritating.  I couldn't bring myself to say in a real conversation to someone "hey, catch that episode of...breaking...bad... last night?

Man, it's going to be like that sex pistols gig or something. If as many people were there at the begining as there are people who claim to have been there, well there'd have been a lot more people there. Wink

And everyone who saw the first season of "The Wire" when it aired went on to film their own serialized police procedural.
