I don't need to "prove" anything. It's obvious to me that looking at serialized shows, I see a lot of stuff like The Wire
and Breaking Bad
, while I can't think of a single wholly or chiefly episodic show of similar quality. It's just a bunch of boring cop show shit.
If it's not obvious to you, so be it. I'm just using this debate to keep my thread bumped anyway.
Indeed, the closest thing I've seen in the past decade to a pure episodic format was Law & Order -- a generally acclaimed franchise, by the way
It doesn't matter if a show is "generally acclaimed" if it puts me to sleep.
