Nice try, but what I mean is that there needs to be SOME quality that keeps you watching / reading / listening. Wit, charm, energy, humor, intensity, pain, whatever. Something that ENGAGES you. Whether it's the good guy, the bad guy, or a secondary character.
For instance: I don't care how brilliant a movie is supposed to be, if I find the lead character annoying I'm probably not going to watch it to the end.
Re. BREAKING BAD, I found all of Walter White's family dull. But the storyline is riveting, so there you go.
