the most intense discussions i ever had over Breaking Bad was with chicks and the whole Jane incident. after Walt let Jane choke to death, all the women i knew that watched the show wanted to fucking kill Walt and hated him like poison. guys were mostly neutral because she was likely using Jesse and she was an absolutely horrible person. so she got what she deserved. when the two opinions clashed everyone started yelling. its still probably the most fucked up thing Walt ever did on that show and thats really saying something.Yea true, I was just talking about online discourse / water cooler talk, not so much mystery boxes. Lost was obviously the most mystery box show of all time, but just generating talk about a show online that lasts months as the show goes on is very important to a shows success.
While Breaking Bad didn't have a lot of mystery boxes so to speak there was a lot of debate over where a season was going or what a character was going to do next.
