I was one of the ones who noted not liking shows like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The Sopranos, and Mad Men in the previous thread.

And, my reasoning for that, as I described in that thread, is pretty much your example #1. I tried all of them, and didn't enjoy them. I don't generally enjoy shows (or movies, or books) in which the main / primary characters are all unlikable, or regularly do horrible things. And, in the case of Game of Thrones, in which I've also tried to read the books, it seemed like every time I did find a character that I liked, that character would die horribly.

In addition, I've never been a fan of fiction (or non-fiction) about organized crime, which is another specific reason for my dislike of The Sopranos.
