    I concur. Although hype wise Sopranos will always prevail.
    Took me a second look, years later to get into The Wire.

    I always thought the Sopranos was one of the most overrated shows ever. Everyone shit on the series finale. The only great episode was when they were chasing the guy in the woods during the winter, eating mints and ketchup packets.

    That's why it'll never end. Everyone has their hand in the cookie jar too. Cops, judges, politicians, the people on the street are the tip of the iceberg. The cops are there to pick their pockets and pick up the bodies.

    Looking back, boardwalk empire, game of thrones and most likely westworld all easily surpass sopranos. The same cannot be said for the wire
    Shady man I donít think you could be more wrong. Sopranos s4 thru 6 are incredible...I highly recommend rewatching as you miss so many foreshadowing moments of Tonyís demise with one viewing. The writing and acting of sopranos are what makes it #1 for me over the wire- gandolfini as tony is the GOAT acting performance.

    Boardwalk not even a top 5 show for me. Westworld is straight trash now. Breaking bad is easy top 4 but lacks the realism that sopranos/wire have- grow up Peter Pan, count chocula. Rewatching true detective s1 right now (first time since it originally aired), might be the best season of tv ever. Shame season 2 was garbage.

    LOST seasons 1-4 can compete with anyone.

    Both are great, easily top 3 along with Breaking Bad and honorable mention to Banshee. I'd rewatch The Wire first myself.
