Perhaps I was a bit hyperbolic.
The Wire and the Sopranos were indeed fantastic television. So was season one of Homeland. Don't get me started on the crapfest that is season two, though. How such a brilliant show went soooo wrong....ugh.
Breaking Bad doesn't suck too much.
I guess I was thinking more of the glut of CSI, L&O, NCIS crime and "mystery" shows. Now they are unfettered feces compared to Sherlock.
Is Martin Freeman playing whatshisface in the Hobbit? I thought I heard that. He cracked my shit up when he started beating up Sherlock on the way to Irene's.
