You've heard or read comments about how a show has "bad writing" or how the writing suffers over the course of many seasons.
So what shows do you consider to have good, or at least consistently decent writing.
House always had great writing. The issue that the show ran in to was that the formula was getting stale, so they tried to make it feel fresh with constant drama/main character replacements... but it ended up making the drama itself stale. So even though it was excellently written, I was completely turned off by the final season.
If you're so inclined, the finest episode that the show ever produced was Three Stories.
Yes, of course Breaking Bad is excellent. Game of Thrones is excellent as well, but it's young. Homeland, a fantastic 24-esque successor on Showtime has some of the most compelling storyline I've ever been exposed to on television (though also young). It may not be popular, but I always enjoyed this old show from the early/mid '90's called 'the Outer Limits' which is basically a modern Twilight Zone. Seinfeld was seriously GOLD, one of the funniest sitcoms ever, in my opinion, but the last episode was an unfortunate weak point.
