A lot of these shows are just serial dramas dressed up for an audience other than housewifes or teenage girls. Yeah, you get into the show. That's the way serial dramas work. It doesn't make them Ibsen.
The Sopranos was great, The Wire was very good, if uneven. A lot of the rest (Breaking Bad, MadMen, etc...) are way overrated.
Spot on. I, specifically, am not blown away by Breaking Bad as seemingly everyone else on the planet is anymore.
Everything has to be the greatest or the worst now.
