In an interview with Vulture, he dismissed the crime show and its stars, aswell as today's dumb audiences.

“I tried to watch the first episode of season one - I didn’t get it at all. I thought it was really boring. And season two looks awful,” he criticised.

“Just the trailer - all these handsome actors trying not to be handsome and walking aroudn like the weight of the world is on their shoulders.”

“It’s so serious, and they’re so tortured, trying to look miserable with their mustaches and grungy clothes.”

He did, however, praise Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom.

"That was the only show that I literally watched three times. I would watch it when the new one would come on. Then after it was over, I’d watch it all over again. Then I would usually end up watching it once during the week, just so I could listen to the dialogue one more time."

The outspoken director behind films like Kill Bill and Django Unchained added, "I was a pretty angry young man, but if I were angry now, it’d be like, What the f*ck is my problem? I’ve got a really terrific life. It’s so rare to be an artist in my position. How can I get mad at anything? I get irritated, but I have mellowed. Life’s too short."
