Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

I think I got two full seasons into The Wire, so it wasn't a quick give-up, but I just couldn't find the will to continue at some point. I was liking it well enough, but not loving it. Sopranos was a quick give-up. I'm fanatical about The Godfather I and II, but crime movies/TV can generally be pretty hit-or-miss for me.

I would be seeing GOT through if it weren't for the fact that everyone craps so hard on the last season. It's hard to push myself through when I know I'm likely in for an ending that I'm not going to like.

FWIW I do think Mad Men gets better after the start, but I was in love with it from the first episode. It's not like Parks and Rec, where if a person drops out after three episodes I feel duty-bound to push them to stick with it, or The Office, where I usually just encourage people to start from S02E01 and then fill in season 1 later after they know they like the show.
