I saw McMaffia
fucking hell, it's slow. It's like scant-noir but not as exciting. I don't know if I can be bothered to watch the last couple of episodes, I just want them all to die, stupid boring wankers.

The title is pretty tragic.
Doesn't have the same ring as its Welsh equivalent, the Taffia.

Title is shit
characters are boring. Dialogue is tedious. At one point James Norton stepped out of the shower with a towel around his waist and another wrapped around his shoulders and me and my partner shouted out "two towels?!?!?!" utterly horrified at the wasteful extravagance on show. The unnecessary generation of dirty laundry did make us very angry.

Was he trying to cover up his moobs or something?

Former model James Norton
doesn't have moobs. That may be why they cast him, it wasn't for his charismatic screen presence.

Fair enough, I had no idea who the lad was.
I've just googled him and am none the wiser. He appears to be one of those oh-I-say daaahling act-orrs.

Cast well he can be good
playing a superficial cad in War And Peace he was great fun to watch, but McMafia is pretty thin and he doesn't have the personality to liven it up. Mind you, it would need someone like Oliver Reed to get that production watchable.

More to the point why was he wearing towels in the shower, that's just stupid

That's why I gave up on The Wire - got two episodes in and nothing had happened.
Also, McMafia sounds like it'd be about burger bar turf wars.

I have to say that The Wire was some of the best TV ever made
not my favourite, I got bored with it during the second series, but the way it shows the workings of US society won my respect. The dialogue was so well put together. One of those shows I think is great, but I only have so much time for.

I'll take entertaining over worthy, any day of the week.

It was entertaining at points
but not enough.

We watched the first 3 or 4, then apparently forgot about it
Says it all, I suppose

I'm going the same way
just hoping they all die in the last couple of episodes, that would make up for the tedium.

For me, I think the turning point
was when I got a handle on what was going on, but realised that I didn't care
