You sound like a victim of instant gratification. Not a fun issue to have.

Most shows are still 22 minutes. You're just choosing to watch longer stuff.

Oh I don't watch them it's just most of the critically acclaimed stuff I'd like to watch is just too long.

How can you know that Breaking Bad would be better if it was shorter then? To be honest, these shows have trimmed the fat since the trend with better shows are typically shorter 10-12 episode seasons. Sometimes as short as 6 or 7 episodes. Compare that to other network shows which tend to have 22 episode seasons. There is more than a little fat on those.

That's how dramas work. It's about setting the scene, getting to know the characters in the small moments and just sitting with them for a bit. It's not a plot point to plot point highlight reel.

The internet has made people too impatient.

Alternative title: people today have the attention span of a fly.

The slow panning shots make for dramatic scenes. Peaky Blinders uses them quite effectively. Your opinion is unpopular.
