This is completely retarded in every way. You are comparing a show with no cgi, no costumes, no exotic locales to a show that spends an incredible amount of money and effort on those things. Did you also hate LOTR because the actors were too over the top and they wore too much makeup? Seriously wtf are you even talking about? This show is not the sopranos and isn't supposed to be.Yup. Would have given the series some serious acting chops to play off of.
Look, I'm not saying it's a bad series it's just ever since the Sopranos went off HBO has been desperately trying to recreate that "magic" again so they end up trying too hard. I mean look at Breaking Bad - no nudity, few cuss words, implied violence and it's the best show on hands down. Why? Because the cast isn't trying to constantly top each other and it's one of the best written shows and thought out shows in my opinion. As the old adage goes - sometimes less is more.
