*******soprano spoilers below**********
If this were a horse race, the wire would win the race by about 2 lengths. The sopranos would win 2nd place in a photo finish to Breaking Bad
I've seen every eposide of both at least 2-3 times. Sopranos is better. but not by a lot. it has more depth, more character development and is more unpredictable.
The thing about the sopranos is the same thing that made the wire great. Anyone can get got at any time. big pussy? bye. Chris? bye. Adriana? Bye. Lil Tony? bye.
To me, season 2 keeps breaking bad from ever being better than the sopranos because there is no way in hell that Jessic makes it out of season 2 alive if that were the same writing as the sopranos. he had gone completely ape shite and at some point int he show you realize, he isn't going anywhere regardless of how shitty he makes everyone else's lives.
