For those who want it in SAT form:
Eric :: True Blood as Brock Samson :: Venture Bros.
Lots of fun characters on the show (Jason, 1930s Bill in general, The Newlins, Jessica, Pam, etc) all SEVERELY outclassed by the awesomeness of one character. I think it really started with the highlights.
Is anyone else really disappointed with Chris Bauer's character? He was so great in The Wire but he sucks so badly in TB that I just tune out whenever he shows up.
