Yeah, that's definitely part of it. I'm not sure if I'm mature enough to really break it down. There were many things that rubbed me the wrong way. It's been so long since I watched it I'm not sure I can even really articulate it into words.
So, do you guys just hate Skylar as a character or Anna Gunn and her acting? Because I thought she was brilliant as that character, and I thought that character was quite believable in terms of what she went through, how she would react as things progressed (especially as a mother of a new baby coming to terms with being married to a clear narcissist).

Perhaps you men just don't get the totality of her understandable reactions to that horrific situation.

I'm not saying I LOVED her character. I'm just saying it was a believable one.

The Deadwood movie gave me all the closure I needed. I loved that they really played into the characters we loved from the series. Although now I have to rewatch the movie to make sure SOMEONE, anyone says "Anyways..." at some point. (Someone says "Anyways" in every single episode of the series, in case you hadn't ever noticed.)

HBO's Rome might be a contender for me. Two seasons, great story, mostly great acting, and the story actually CONCLUDES at a reasonable point without leaving fans on a cliffhanger to later cancel the series altogether.
Agreed! I'm lookin' at you, Carnivale!

I should rewatch Rome soon too.
As Leonard Cohen used to say... "Everybody knowsFirefly was the greatest sci fi show of all time."
We need another writers strike
I saw BB once. That was enough.
Or maybe season 12. They spent a big B on this pig. It will probably never end.
Unrelated: Has anyone actually seen a ring in any of the "trailers" from a show called The Rings of Power? Asking for a friend. Seems like the sort of thing you might use to get your fans on board eh? Maybe that comes in season 3 or 4?

Killed off a few shows at the time, like Journey Man!
I forgot about those writer strikes =\
