In TV shows I was always surprised with The Shield. Every episode was a a lesson in how low the human mind can go.
As for movies. There is a movie called Korean movie called Oldboy. It is the most fucked up movie about revenge I have seen to date and left you feeling horrible afterwards.
I like The Shield
and there were intense moments but I was really caring about the characters. Though I don't think I will ever watch The Wire
from what I've heard about it. Oldboy
I was always told what a fantastic movie it was, it was a cool story, and everything, but I felt blah afterwards. I've heard talk of the greatest fight scene ever in a movie I just felt it wasn't bad. Most people can't believe I didn't dig Oldboy
but I just plain didn't and didn't even enjoy watching it.
