wow, that breaking bad episode...
Is it just me or , when you guys watch Breaking Bad do you also wonder WHY there is such a dearth of quality on Network television? Why can't NBC/ABC/CBS put out product that is even 1/2 as good as what Fx/AMC produce? It's befuddling. Do they have to pander to their audiences SO much that they have to water down any semblance of quality out of their programming? With the life span of most dramas being less than a full season, how is that working out?
if only one network exec would just say '**** this' and go all out to try to revamp basic tv...he would be a genius. Probably get fired, but man, all it takes is one brave soul. There is hardly a thing on Breaking bad that couldn't be shown on a network after 10 pm. Ok...maybe the drug use, but still, cleaned up does not have to equal sanitized. Meanwhile basic cable stations are reaching the big boys numbers wise and, more importantly EMMY wise. A few years ago it was unheard of for an emmy nod to go to anyone other than the big 3. In a year or 2 I can see them getting shut out in the odd category here and there. More 'movie' actors are going the basic cable route simply because it's all about storytelling. It makes no sense. In this instance safe truly does equal death.
