Well to be fair Breaking Bad started off very well, but got progressively worse and maybe people gave those votes when it was still good. I don't see many people give fair marks to any series. Let's take Supernatural as an example. It's very popular and the story was very good to about the end of season 6/7. It has 8.6 on IMDB and the first few seasons are really good, you have monster of the week format and a bit of story behind it, then the "main" story picks up, with a few funny episodes to ease the tension. All in all well connected and even though it's not completely fresh, it's very entertaining. But if you would judge Supernatural by what it is now... it doesn't even go beyond 5 for me. They just rehash everything they did in earlier seasons. How do you mark it then? By it's previous success or by the bad series it has become?
Saying that, I'm not sure how the Walking Dead got 8.6.

Both of these were caught by the automated spam detector as "possibly dodgy post" and required human intervention to accept them.
And I had to accept them both so that you wouldn't get a swift kick as a spammer, and then manually delete one afterwards!
I know it's annoying when it doesn;t appear, but give it a little time rather than reposting immediately, please?

So I have been diving into mobile app development lately and so far it has been pretty fun. I've jumped around and learned a good bit of native Android and iOS (Swift of course) as well as Ionic (hybrid, cordova) apps. I want to master one of these, but I'm not sure which.
Native iOS development has been fun. The Swift language seem really great. I love the tooling options available as well.The problem here is two things. #1 I HATE Objective-C, but it still seems necessary to know. #2 is the cost. I have to have a Mac, a developer licences, and will want and iPhone and potentially other hardware. I can get the money, but not for a good few months. Also, I feel like there are so many good iOS developers my age, so I would saturate the field.
Native Android is cool too. Google services and tooling are awesome too. Android, however, has too many developers my age ranging from really good to really bad. Also, I fell that everyone has an i-device, and that I would loose so many potential users mastering Android development. Plus I'm fearing that Android is going to switch off of Java soon and that half of the tooling will be obsolete.
Ionic has been really fun too. In fact, a friend and me were able to push out a good looking PoC in about a week. It is really easy since my background is a web developer, but it seems that Hybrid gets left out when it comes to tooling and services. I also feel that if I can't / don't develop for watch's in a few years, I won't be very useful. Cordova can integrate with watch devices, but it is very ghetto. I also feel like Cordova and Hybrid apps will be obsolete in 10 years or so.
I know that I always could go and master all three, but it would probably end up being too much work and not worth it in the end. Which of these do y'all think I should go and master.
