While I may enjoy these shows, I don't think any of them are great because they all want you to treat them like they are a cartoon.

    I'm only posting this here because my wife is tired of me complaining about aspects of each of these series when we watch them. Thanks for letting me get this off my chest...
    I am pretty good as suspending disbelief but sometimes the strangest things nag at me. I went from thinking Killing Eve was one of the best shows ever to thinking it’s merely a very good show, all because I didn’t buy into Sandra Oh’s character arc. Any positive fascination you have with a psychotic killer is going to end as soon as she kills your friend. I can buy into explosions, near deaths, and deus ex machina much more than I can buy into people not behaving the way people behave.

    I think we've all got our threshold for how much belief we're willing to suspend. It's the most common reason for me ditching a show.... and it happens a lot. I wish it were otherwise.

    Killing Eve crossed my line within a few episodes and I didn't get enough out of the other, fun elements to keep me engaged. Mrs. Maisel has come close, but there's enough I love about that show I keep watching.

    Right now, I've just about run out of shows, so I'm having to reassess that threshold. I just finished watching Line of Duty, the british crime drama, and not long ago, I wouldn't have been able to finish it. But I kept going. I enjoyed it even if it wasn't Wire-like realistic.

    This either caps off the best show I have ever seen or it crashes and burns. Stakes are high here.
