I think you misspelled 'Breaking Bad."

Don't worry, these things happen.

Breaking Bad is decent.
One thing that's always bothered me...

There's no way Twin Peaks had a population of 50k. Like, had anyone who made that show ever seen what a town of 50k looked like? Even 5k would have been pushing it, but at least in the right ballpark.

Yeah I figured it was 5121 not 51201 lol.

Ironically I just found this out:

The population of Twin Peaks is 51,201 due to a request from ABC Network. They felt that a town of 5,120 (the original population) was too small and unrelatable.
That's hilarious. But it also explains a lot.

So, to make it more relatable, just change the sign, but leave the town the same.

Because people only relate to what the sign says, not the characters and plot and setting.

Yeah, makes no sense haha. There is no question that it's a small town. The ONLY thing that makes it seem otherwise is having a department store downtown. But a lot of 3k-5k small towns out in the midwest have Wal Marts so...

Trinity Peaks, thats how they should call upcoming episodes. I have never seen a single episode of both Lost and 24.

I am tired of Earth. These people. I am tired of being caught in the tangle of their lives.

I have never seen Lost, 24, or Twin Peaks but how is that any way better than Simpsons prior to season 11?

I also havent seen Breaking Bad because it looks dumb and glorifying drugs. Why doesnt he just go get treated in a hospital? Healthcare is a right not something dependent on your ability to pay.

Besides the new best show on TV is Brooklyn Nine Nine

Because he also wants to pay for his son's college and then he finds that the only thing that has made him excited in life is dealing drugs. If you want to know if it glorifies drug dealing, it probably does, but it also assures that everyone who does so will meet a horrific demise.

But because I'm heavily focussed on comedies for TV series, my personal favourites would be Louie, Rick and Morty, Community, Bojack Horseman and New Girl (a guilty pleasure).

I like Brooklyn Nine Nine too but I also feel like it's too in service of the jokes rather than the story for me to feel emotionally invested. I mean, you've got one sole romantic arc between the two characters that I care about, but nothing else I can really latch onto. I like something that can be funny but also maintain a story between episodes. It's still good for a nice hearty laugh, though. :)
