    Both great shows, but gotta go with the Sopranos. I think that The Shield ranked right up with both of them.

    When I finished Breaking Bad, I declared it the winner. But as time goes by, I'm leaning towards The Sopranos. The reason is, I had the itch to watch the Sopranos series a 2nd time and when I did, I enjoyed it just as much as the 1st go round. I have yet to have an urge to watch Breaking Bad again. Real close but The Sopranos wins this race.

    Breaking Bad. I can't remember many dead spots in Breaking Bad, but The Sopranos was riddled with them; 98% of the scenes with Meadow or AJ, most scenes with Carmella off doing her own thing, the Johnny Cakes gay horseshit, most of the last 2-3 seasons, etc. Then there's the lazy stuff/bad writing of the Russian who got away, Chris magically showing up with a new fiance, etc.

    Breaking Bad was tight and tense as fuck, it maintained the tension, and went out with a bang. The Sopranos went out with a whimper.

    Sopranos. Have watched the series multiple times and it still holds up.
    Breaking Bad was great but I can't watch it again.

    BB clear winner, I was so excited for the sopranos when it started and I kept hoping it would get better so I stuck with it for like 5-6 episodes, I just couldn't get into it.

    James Gandolfini really fucking sucked.

    I'm surprised so many are going with the Sopranos. It was a great show, and it was certainly a Sunday event, but I remember being let down by slow episodes, poor writing, etc... That rarely happened with Breaking Bad.

    I agree with a lot that sopranos has more to offer the second time around but I think that is because of the humor and gratuitous violence.

    The final season of sopranos was so much worse than the first 5 that it tarnished it for me. Breaking bad has no Johnny cakes or AJ with a girl 10x out of his league bullshit moments. Breaking bad got better as the show went a long where as sopranos got worse steadily after season 3.

    The finale of breaking bad is so air tight and incredible that Breaking Bad wins out.
