The use of the word "****" doesn't mean poor writing. He's going for a realistic look, which is why the word **** is used. If you pay attention, you'll notice that each of the characters has a different voice. That takes a lot of skill to pull off, most shows don't.
Whoa, I am not going to feel this much guilt. As close to consensus of "Greatest American Show Ever Made" is The Sopranos. It's the top of most lists, including the writers guild list I quoted.

As I said I am 6 episodes in, I will plod on, much like the series seems to be doing in it's character development phase.
