    Should I begin watching this? Is it slow paced? Hard for me to watch shows that are.

    It is one of the better shows on television. Especially the first few seasons.

    It's one of the best shows on TV but it does start out really slow. It's all about character development for a while until they can move the story along. If you can get through the first season then you'll be fine.

    Sweet. I like the styles and all. That alone might keep me interested long enough.

    It is incredibly slow.

    I made it 6 or 7 episodes and had to give up. I'm also incredibly patient with TV shows. I try my best to give all the highly rated shows a chance.

    Maybe I'll go back and start where I left off because I am certainly not re-watching those episodes.

    DW, you have seen Breaking Bad though, right?

    I'm only 3 episodes in on BB. I went back and watched 2 a week ago and loved it... so I'm going to continue with it.

    Still have a few episodes of Arrested Development also.

    Finished The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret last week. Liked it.

    Everyone says season 4 of BB is the best one but I'm about 4 episodes in and kinda boring so far, hopefully it'll pick up later in season 4.

    Todd Margaret has been in my queue for a long time now. I'm just now starting to make a run through my queue as of late.

    You'll love BB... especially if you're already enjoying. It gets better as it progresses for the most part.

    It's the second highest rated season of any TV show of all time (metacritic), behind only a season of The Wire.

    It will pick up. The finale was the most watched episode in the history of TV. I assume it still is since that was less than two years ago.
