All three top shows , but which one just tops the others?
The Shield should be part of the convo
Can't pick a favorite but throw in Deadwood and The Shield and you have my top five probably...
I can't vote until you add My Mother the Car to the list.
My personal order is:
I have watched all three series multiple times and find The Sopranos has the most replay value. As many times as I've watched each episode, I still find something new that I hadn't noticed previously.
All three were great, though.
Am I the only one who just couldn't get into The Wire?
Nope. Same here.
Anyway the sopranos is my all time favorite show
BB is good but not nearly as good.
You're not gonna believe this. He killed sixteen Czechoslovakians. Guy was an interior decorator.
Sopranos started awesome and went downhill over the years. Overblown dream sequences and johnnycake eating gay mobsters - need I say more. Breaking Bad - great through the whole series. The Wire season where the chief "legalizes" drugs - amazing.
I've just stumbled upon Showtimes Brotherhood - cancelled after 2.5 seasons for some reason. The first 2 seasons were great. The Wire meets Sopranos.
I'm currently watching Season 4 of the Wire. It's great but I could live without so much "Prez the Teacher" stuff.
Throw in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Battlestar Galactica and you're filling out my Top 5.
The Wire is the best of those three though, easily.
The teacher is cringe-worthy. Irritating actor.Stilted as fuck.
O shit Omars coming
Sopranos, while still very good, is the the worst of the three. Breaking Bad was the most entertaining, but was slightly overrated by the end. The Wire was great except for Season 2 and is probably my favorite of the three. Tough call though.
How much did you watch of The Wire? Did you watch the entire first season? It's like Game of Thrones. It doesn't get good until the second season. Well, let's just say that it's not captivating at least. I found my attention wandering in both series during the first season.
3. Breaking Bad
I'm going to get a ton of hate but Breaking Bad was wildly overrated. Good show, Bryan Cranston and Gus are great actors, I watched the first 4 seasons and was wondering the entire time what the big deal was.
They had to start a new arc with him because that season is about exploring how entire generations of kids are getting destroyed by the drug war
The writers just got tired on Sopranos plus David Chase doesn't really know to end a storyline
It's still the greatest show ever just based on seasons 1-3. I thought season 5 was a bit of rebound in quality
Understood. I just thought there was too much of him trying to be Mr Chips. The same point was made better in the scenes with Bunny and the "corner kids" class.
I had the same experience with the Wire, but pushed through to the second season and I'm glad I did
