Apples and oranges, sure, but there were a lot of soprano episodes i couldn't keep my interest in. Game of thrones? Sheeeeit, I rewatch the episodes every once in a while. Just wait till this season is over, you will fcking jack off to the upcoming episodes.
Game of Thrones, good show but really just a tame cliff notes version of the books which are excellent. Most definitely not in the conversation with the Sopranos/The Wire. Hell, not even in the conversation with Mad Men right now. It's on the level of a Breaking Bad, maybe even a notch lower.
