Its funny how you are giving BB fans a hard time when you clearly have a hard-on for Dexter yourself.
That's because Dexter vastly improved when the producer changed. Instead of trying to be badass to appeal to nerds, the show has branched out successfully to other demos with great characters like Travis Marshall and Lumen Pierce, as well as Deb's epiphany that she views her brother as her soulmate. Ratings for the show are the highest they've ever been.
From a ratings and marketing standpoint, I have no criticisms of Breaking Bad. Artistically, this never ending crime story is artificial and surrounds the most unlikable cunts I've ever seen. Greg House is a deeply sensitive gentleman compared to Walter White.
