Caprica and Breaking Bad

Caprica has returned. I'm still following it and it seems to have potential, but the way they've screwed with the schedule, I don't expect it to last much longer.

The religious angle annoys me almost as much as the Grilled Cheesus episode of Glee, which hit all the usual stupid tropes about atheists.

Meanwhile, thanks to Netflix I have been watching Breaking Bad, which I've heard some people recommend as the greatest show since The Wire.

Eh, not even close. It's not even Mad Men, and it's sure as hell not The Wire (which was the greatest fucking TV series EVER!!!). Breaking Bad is interesting enough to keep watching, and it's better than most network TV (not a high bar), but I'm starting to have the same problem with it that I did with Nip/Tuck. Nip/Tuck started out as a fairly engaging drama, and turned into a carnival of bizarre fetishism with not a single character left sympathetic or likeable. I can see Breaking Bad going the same way. I already don't really like anyone on the show, and I'm only halfway through season two.
