I mean I think it's a great show, but I'm not over the moon about it. So I watched it (got a few episodes left of the final season) because while I didn't think it was the greatest thing since sliced bread, it's still many hours of quality entertainment.


The Walking Dead
Falling Skies
Justified
Face Off
Big Bang Theory
Rescue Me (when the Breaking first premiered)

Are about all the shows that I have time for. I watched the first season or two ish of it, and it just didn't captivate me the way Rescue Me, and then Justified have.


Breaking Bad is better than at least any two of those shows.


Not better than walking dead
not better than justified
not better than rescue me.

But that's just me. After watching the beginning of breaking bad, it just didn't do much to keep my attention.

My problem with breaking bad is that it really takes a full season before it gets any interesting. Then it's great.

Only by they were done with Crazy8 I felt like I wanted to watch more rather than indulge a friend's request.

I was talking to my brother, he was saying that Breaking Bad is possibly the greatest show ever made. I asked him why, and he was talking about the character development, how they evolve and how the line between good and bad is blurred, etc etc. I told him, by those standards, it sounds like Code Geass should be in the running for best show ever. And then I got to thinking about it. If they mainstreamed Code Geass, ie live action etc, but kept the basic story and characters the same, it would be up there with Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad for best show ever.

Quite possibly, I think. people may be put off by the exaggerations or how people are mindfucked into suicide right off the bat, but otherwise...

There's also the little fact that the acting in BB is freaking amazing.

yea. But I suppose the geass power is about as believable as zombies and vampires, and those shows are popular enough.

Me neither..

And I just spent a few minutes thinking bqack and wondering.. "what did we use hash for back in those days" - the only thing I can remember using it for was codes for the phone, or keeping a text 3 chars shorter by using it as "no." (i.e. "#3" instead of "no. 3")
Anyone remember other uses as such?

(I know the original use is shorthand for "in nomine Dei", as evidenced by prescriptions (at least around here) (In nomine dei recipe XXX)
Main Characters:
Nooska, Blood Elf BM/SV Hunter on Argent Dawn (EU)
Morosin, Bloody freezing orc death knight on Argent Dawn (EU)
Niisca, Shady forsaken "priest" on Argent Dawn (EU)

Keeper Emeritus of the BM hunters guide on Elitist Jerks and the wowhead version untill patch 5.3.
