I think that was when a lot of us truly realised how cruel GoT is, it was also when I decided that GoT is better than Breaking Bad.

Neither one of them is better than the other, they are completely separate narrative mediums

Was I not clear enough? I meant in my opinion.

That's like saying "In my opinion, cake is better than the color blue". You're comparing two things in different categories

Neither show is objectively better than the other, but subjectively I think GoT is better.

Don't go spouting such fucking nonsense.

I think you're not reading what I typed

I never said anything about subjectivity, I said that you can't validly compare two things of a different category

"apples and oranges"

The category is television show. They're both television shows. So it's like comparing Granny Smith apples to Honeycrisp apples. And fuck you, cake is better than the color blue.

No buddy, it was clear from the beginning that I was talking in subjective terms.

Game of Thrones is a television show. Breaking Bad is a television show.

Shut up.

Do you want a shovel? If you're saying "I never said subjective", but my original post is obviously subjective then you are wrong. You brought objective definitions into this, but they never had any relevance to what I said at all.

Cake gives me more enjoyment than seeing the color blue. There compared them based on how they make me feel.

Doesn't matter, they're not the same category

What? They're both television shows. Its not like saying GoT is a radio station and Breaking Bad is a newspaper, they are literally the same narrative medium.

The 9 o'clock news is a television show

I'd say game of thrones is better. Less violent.

One could argue that game of thrones is a character study as well, but with like 5 or 6 characters (the ones that actually have fully fleshed out arcs). The character arc and deveopment of say, Daenarys, is definitely comparable to the character arc and developement of Walter White. When you then account for all the other characters and elements of the show, you have a pretty sold basis for a direct comparison between the two shows.
