    Both have been argued to be the greatest television series in the history of television.

    What do you think?

    As much as I love Breaking Bad, I feel that there is a lot more depth in The Sopranos.

    I felt "the Sopranos" was the best tv show ever until I saw "Breaking Bad."

    IMHO, I find The Wire and The Sporanos equally awesome.

    Throw Deadwood in that mix, too.

    And, holy shit, how fucking awesome is Amazon Prime?

    Breaking Bad was epic, but The Sopranos will always be my favorite.

    I tried to get into the Wire, but that 4:3 screen format annoys the shit out of me.

    Sopranos. If Breaking Bad was on HBO I'd reconsider

    Sopranos first 3-4 seasons were better. Breaking Bad was more consistent. I went with Sopranos because its peak was higher.

    Nearly two decades before landing the role of Walter White, Bryan Cranston was in Power Rangers!

    If it weren’t for the 2007–08 writers’ strike, show creator Vince Gilligan and the other writers were planning to kill off Jesse in Episode 9 of the first season. Thanks to the strike this episode never happened, and it was decided that Jesse was much too valuable a character to lose. Yeah, bitch!

    According to Anna Gunn, who played Skyler White, Cranston cried for 15 minutes after filming the scene in which Walt let Jesse’s girlfriend Jane Margolis die.

    In a scene that Vince Gilligan called a “one-in-a-million shot,” Bryan Cranston managed to throw the pizza onto the roof in the very first take for this now-iconic moment.
