Television connoisseurs to savour Breaking Bad like a fine wine

THOSE who watch only the finest television are eagerly anticipating new Breaking Bad episodes.



The crime series is beloved of a new breed of television connoisseur who views only the most exquisite American drama.

Office manager Tom Logan said: “I am one of an elite group of telephiles for whom only series that are maybe ‘the best of all time’ are good enough.

“While viewing Breaking Bad I shall snack upon some highly refined potato crisps – cheese and chive flavour.

“I’ll stoop to The Walking Dead but anything below that in terms of quality will make me physically sick.

“Most television simply does not cater to people like me. Indeed the airwaves are awash with shows like Hollyoaks that denigrate the televisual medium.

He added: “I have very discerning eyeballs and a special satin ‘viewing jacket’.”

39-year-old Emma Bradford said: “I know the phrase ‘story arc’ which means I understand televised entertainment on a very profound level.

“Sometimes my friends and I like to watch Holby City in an ironic way. It is terribly formulaic.

“I consider medical dramas to be ‘telly’, which is quite different to ‘serious television’.”
