what I meant Amer was , that we are only watch a fraction of shows that exists. there are show that were around before us and there will be shows after us.
Now if you want to group shows by decades that's fine.
and to encompass Evans earlier post, I will give you that maybe your opinion will have a little more weight behind it, but again this is all personal preference and even the Emmy awards are a preference of a group of people, and not a whole of society.
So everyone should preface their statements with, I think this is the best show ever during this time period or the best show ever of this genre.
I think the Majority of the shows mentioned are great, but We throw around words like best ever and amazing way to casually.

I don't think anyone is under the illusion that "best show ever" isn't just shorthand for "best show that I am familiar with." De gustibus non est disputandum and all that. We are just opinionating. Except me. I am objectively correct with all of my assessments. When you disagree with me you are wrong.
I think fatty makes some excellent points. However, it's not really a personal preference thing for me. I don't even like the Wire. I just think that in terms of quality of production, writing, symbolism, and meta-expression, it's in the lead for me right now.

The Wire also had the legendary "Fuck" scene. It really is a top notch show. I just thought Breaking Bad was tighter and more consistently top notch. The last season of The Wire got a little ridiculous. Breaking Bad was amazing from beginning to end.
I think Breaking Bad had a problem that a lot of shows have, which is that the writers sometimes have the characters do something to get to certain plot points, without thinking about how the characters really would have handled the situation. They cram the characters into the story, rather than have the story be about the characters. It takes some of the realism out of the show, which I don't like.

I totally disagree. I always thought the characters were well thought out and behaved in believable ways. The only possible exceptions I can think of are Marie (who they clearly just decided to shove to the side once they realized she was the least interesting regular character) and Q (I forget his name on the show, the junkie girl's dad, who probably wouldn't have responded that extremely). Both of those are bit roles. All the main people were well written.
I liked this movie called "Upside Down." It's a visual feast. I think Tulley and True would like it the most, but I recommend it to anyone who likes a sci-fi love story with not-too-complicated of a story.

Mike Lenin: It comes across as contrived that you don't know the plight of Annie. You're playing coy

Mike Lenin: you posted in the mildville gazette forum right before posting this shoutbox. I can't believe that you would make this comment AFTER reading the Gazette. Please. It's normal behavior economics to read the Gazette then post. This makes you suspect.

Buzzfly: Ya whatever. As I said vote how you want, nothing is going to change how you think. Frankly, its getting to be a waste of time.

Mike Lenin: OMG, dude, you are totally a villain and are caught!

Buzzfly: You must be really bored

Mike Lenin: And yeah, I'm open minded to new ideas when they fit. Earlier I had shouted at you that I'm willing to accept that you could be a hero

Mike Lenin: boring people get bored
May 11, 2020 20:24:02 GMT -8
Mike Lenin: and definitely not sober

Buzzfly: Well that I can drink too
May 11, 2020 20:24:41 GMT -8
Mike Lenin: And yeah, for the record, tl;dr you accused me of playing the game, and to boot, to that, correctly, in identifying you as a villain. So despite it being clear that we are playing for different teams, I'm still down to share a drink with you
May 11, 2020 20:28:03 GMT -8
Buzzfly: Take another drink, you will need it when you find out youre wrong
