The issue I have with great TV is that whatever you watch straight afterwards will always be a disappointment.
It happened when I watched The Wire. The next few shows were too Hollywood. Too fake. Not as grounded or honest.
Now I've just finished watching Le Bureau des légendes which isn't on the same level as The Wire ( it goes a little Hollywood at times). But it is still very real and honest. Makes watching the final season of Person of Interest hard going.
