House of Cards Is Better Than Breaking Bad?
 

 
I was having an argument with a friend of mine, who said that House of Cards is a better show than, Breaking Bad. I was shocked at that ridiculous statement! And I'm sure a lot of you here are too. I told her that House of Cards is 1 season deep and it's idiotic to compare. She replied with an obvious and "Safe" statement saying, "It's not my cup of tea." I know everyone has a difference of opinion and it's not for everyone, but saying 1 season of a show is better than 5 1/2 seasons of Breaking Bad? Come on.
I guess I shouldn't be surprised with her not liking it, because this is the same person that doesn't like Homeland, Game of Thrones and The Newsroom.
bi*ch is crazy lol.

Way too early to say... BB as of now is a top 5 show of all time, House of Cards hasn't been around long enough (great show nonetheless). As of now HOC is on Big L status .

Breaking Bad, Soprano's And The Wire (No order) will be considered 1a. 1b. and 1c. after Breaking Bad ends, by the mass majority of anybody who knows what they are talking about.

People may disagree, but Sopranos and The Wire are already 1a and 1b on all reputable lists. Breaking Bad will join them, unless it has a colossal falloff in these eight episodes.

Breaking bad is more relatable imo. It's about a sad sack guy and his emotionally vulnerable sidekick who transform their lives by becoming successful masculine archetypes as drug dealers which is idealized by many men in the working class and poor as a way to escape from/attack the oppressive powers of society and civilized life. I love BB because it does it really well while being entertaining, but i don't put it on the same level as The Wire, Deadwood, Mad Men or Sopranos in terms of depth of human understanding and complexity. It's more of a linear story.

House of Cards is about how a powerful sociopath operates in politics but it seems to be a little emotionally lifeless in a culture that is i think removed enough to be really relatable by many. It's a great show though and interesting and i hope it continues on because it's so good at teaching the Machiavellian mindset that goes along with political power broking.

Just some thoughts

Agreed.. IMO The Sopranos, The Wire, and BB are unanimously the Top 3 TV shows of all time. I wouldn't be surprised if Game Of Thrones gets up there as well. My top 5 of all time in no order is The Wire, The Sopranos, BB, Six Feet Under, and soon-to-be Game Of Thrones. Watch out for The Newsroom also.



House of Cards is cool but its no BB... really though WTF is the point of comparing the two? You have 5 and a half seasons vs 1 season........

People like what they like. Like me i think walking dead is an average show with a sh*t ton of flaws but people think its the best thing since sliced bread.

Gotta wait a couple of more seasons before we start thinking that. HoC definitely has potential to be a Top 10 GOAT, though.

i dont think im going to find a show better than breaking bad.. thats kind of a depressing statement but after rewatching the show in preparation for Sunday, I still think its one of the best shows ever to hit tv. Its so well written.
