Which do you prefer?
2 completely different types of shows
I'll play...season 4 of The Wire is my favorite season of any show ever...GOT is great in it's own right but below The Wire IMO.
The wire was a low rent, cheesy gangster show. Game of thrones is an epic masterpiece
Not seen either!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm not as crazy as everyone else is about The Wire.
Well, if you take the three fucking years between seasons, gotta go Wire, even though both are great TV.
This is tough one, like a Sophie's Choice type of thing.
But I gotta give it to game of thrones, based on the books and the strong female characters. Off hand the only strong female I can think of for the wire is Snoop. For got you've got Arya, Brienne, Ygritte, mama Stark, and the sand snakes. And the blond chick with the dragons.
How is the The Wire cheesy?
I've tried to watch the Wire twice. Both times I've thought that the first season was good (though I wasn't compelled to binge) and lost interest in the second. Everyone tells me that season 2 is the worst so maybe I'll just try again with season 3.
Game of Thrones...well it's epic.i love getting people into it. I convinced my parents to give it a shot and they finished the first 5 seasons in two weeks. A paralegal at my working is in the middle of doing the same thing.
The Wire all the way for me. It's just a brilliant show. I love GOT though and it still has a few seasons to go so it could reach the Wire's brilliance.
season 2 is a little slow but 3 is really good an 4 is probably my favourite of the bunch.
I tried watching the Wire and bailed after about six episodes.
All it looked like to me was just another cop show.
If I had to describe The Wire, I'd call it, "Gangsta Shakespeare." You gotta watch the entire series to really appreciate the storytelling. Everything matters and it all comes together so brilliantly by the end.
I second that question.
Because he's seen maybe one episode of it.
Game of Thrones is so overrated. Lord of the rings with boobs the chicks on the show aren't even that hot Emelia Clarke is an LA 7 but because she's on the show she gets to be called the sexiest woman alive
It's all subjective. I love Game of Thrones and to me it's not overrated. Hard to compare it to The Wire though since they're both so different. And even if he did only watch one episode, there's not a single episode of The Wire that's cheesy. My guess is he hasn't even watched one.
This. I go with GOT.
I watched the first season of The Wire but never found it super compelling. Didn't feel like continuing with the series. GoT, on the other hand, is awesome in pretty much every way-- sets, costumes, sets, story, characters.
