yeah but it is a close call.

the only way i could really know is to have both of them air at the same time and see which one i instinctively choose. i don't know at this point. but i'm pretty sure i would choose either one over every other show.

I never started watching BB but is it really better than Boardwalk Empire?? I think that and AGoT are 1 and 1a.

Breaking Bad would become your 1.c


It would be really unfair to try to limit the top spot to one.. When each shows intention is completely different from the other. All 3 of these shows are telling stories that haven't been expressed in the way they are doing.

It really is apple and oranges. I've never seen empire boardwalk but i began watching game of thrones and am an instant addict. I still rank breaking bad above it, but the difference is best expressed in nanometers.

I am barely on episode 7 of season 1, but having no job means i will catch up by the weekend lol. What a bum right? Most definitely highwhey, you should be putting forth your best effort into rejoining the working class portion of the population in america, but nah ima waste time on piratebay downloading game of thrones until i rot. Rot.

I'm interested on your opinion on which show is better after you finish season 1.

Season one was a bit of a drag and really silly at times. I was on the fence if I was going to even tune in for season two.

Season two was much tighter and gives me hope going forward.

Breaking Bad is a better show IMO.
