"Bad Decisions" by Chuck Klosterman - Grantland.com
Klosterman has been on fire lately. I've always liked his stuff but I feel like if you give him too much rope he'll hang himself with it. Thats is to say if you give him too big a word count his brain starts doubling back on itself when he's writing and his arguments get jumbled. Which is why he is killing Grantland right now in a good way. Keeps it short and to the (tangential) point. Here he writes about why he thinks Breaking Bad is better than The Sopranos (doubtful), Mad Men (probably), and The Wire (fuck outta here).
