re: Breaking Bad vs. The Sopranos

It's funny dude. Get a fricking sense of humor. Didn't pick it to be thought provoking like you did with mrfreakingmiyagi

Of course not. Not even in the same galaxy.

Did James Gandolfini touch you inappropriately before he died? You seem to really hate The Sopranos.

I think the ending was perfect for the type of show The Sopranos was. Tony always knew he or anyone else could get it at any time.

re: Breaking Bad vs. The Sopranos
The two shows are apples and oranges. BB is basically one storyline that has continued for five seasons. Sopranos moved all over the place and had a much broader focus.

You read well

From an earlier post by me in this thread:

Never had a problem with Tony dying.

I'm not the one basically claiming intellectual superiority.

And my screen name is the best on TD. FACT

Honestly didn't remember it. Oh well, I think I stated my thoughts best on page 1.

BB will be remembered as the better series.

The ending of The Sopranos will have a lot to do with that.

It will be hard for VG to frick it up as badly as DC did.

re: Breaking Bad vs. The Sopranos
Not everyone hates the ending though. It got a knee-jerk reaction when it aired but I think that faded fairly quickly. I didn't watch it until a couple of years after it was over, so I knew about the ending before starting season 1.

Never said I was smarter than you.

This whole conversation could've been avoided if you just would've said "yea man I didn't get it. Who gives a frick?"

Im in S06E02 of Sopranos right now

Gotta give the edge to BrBa right now but I'll probably be finishing both around the same time

Keeps me from actually seeing the shows sometimes. Hate when it happens.

1. I doubt that.

2. If so; that's a negative reflection on tv watchers, not the Soprano's.

I love Breaking Bad. It doesn't compare to The Soprano's.

I know what you mean. I didn't know details of the final scene or episode. I just heard about the cut to black uproar. It was hard to avoid.

Watching the final season of The Sopranos in one chunk as opposed to the weekly installments is a big difference.

It just didn't fit in with how the show was presented over the course of the series.

I'm not sure what you are claiming that I "didn't get".


Again, the ending simply didn't fit with how the show had been presented over it's course.

Why do you say that?

At least Breaking Bad never wasted the viewers time with pointless side stories (paulie's mom)

It's already getting that sort of buzz.

No, it isn't.

It's a reflection of the cartoon-like characters of The Sopranos, and the shite ending of an otherwise fantastic show.

The ending really did suck.

It will be hard for VG to screw the pooch as badly as DC.
