i'd say breaking bad and arrested development or curb or the office (UK)... can't decide on a comedy.
Thats right, I just realized that and it made me feel old. I like curb and office(uk) a lot, but I have not started arrested development yet. I really need to. I think if I pushed it back to 25 years my picks would probably stay the same.
Games of Thrones and it's not even close GAP
The Walking Dead
The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack
I like Game of Thrones, but wow really? Over Breaking Bad and the Wire and by that much? I actually like Boardwalk Empire over Game of Thrones, which for whatever reason gets way more hype while BE is rarely mentioned. I really don't get the appeal to that level but to each his own. Different opinions I guess.
I just recently over the past year got into dramas and I'd rank the ones I've seen like this:
1. Breaking Bad/Wire
2. Wire/Breaking Bad (Just really can't pick between the two)
3. Boardwalk Empire
4. Game of Thrones
Shows that I plan on eventually watching: The Sopranos, Dexter, and the Shield.
FYI - I like Entourage, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and comedies like that, but they just aren't anywhere near as interesting .
From what I've seen the top 3 in really any order would probably be Sopranos, The Wire, Breaking Bad. Prison Break was probably my personal favorite and was extremely entertaining but it was nowhere near written as well as the other 3 nor did the acting compare. Walking Dead is another personal favorite just because of the zombies but season 2 was extremely weak.
I'd agree with you 100% if the 5th season never happened, and it had better closure. The Sopranos was another series that didn't give you closure that made you feel good but at least it didn't end with a shitty season like the Wire.
Breaking Bad to me has a chance to be the best for me because you get the feeling it's going to end in epic style.
