Default What HBO show should I watch: The Wire or The Sopranos?

I was thinking Game of Thrones but it just looks like a Lord of the Rings run off with more depth and more "unrated" stuff.

Not a huge fan of Lord of the Rings, I was as a young teen. Not so much now. I don't really like fantasy type of TV shows.

Why don't you watch the pilot of each of the 3 shows?

You can't start being prejudiced about a show without even watching it man, you'll miss out on stuff. GOT is really good, and it doesn't focus on fantasy, it's a different kind of show.

If you are into character development and constant black humor go with The Sopranos.

OP, what age group you in?

Guess this confuses me since you say you got into Boxing and Rap 1-2 years ago, but this sounds like you saw those '90's Knicks teams live, and you have the '94 Illmatic signature.
