am now mid way into season 3 of Breaking Bad. My wife and I are both becoming obsessed with this show. My question to you is is Breaking Bad better than the Sopranos? I have never seen the Sopranos and would like to get the boards thoughts on this. TIA
For me - the best 4 shows of the current "Golden Age" of cable drama (excluding GoT - which is kind of its own beast, anyway) are:
Sopranos, The Shield, The Wire and Breaking Bad (not necessarily in that order). I've seen every episode of every show. I still have The Shield as best, all time, but that was because the highs were awesome and the first and last episodes were the best pilot/finale of a series, ever. Having said that, The Wire and Sopranos were, slightly better on a consistent basis. Breaking Bad has the potential to be the greatest show of all time, and, it really gets better and better.
I have little doubt that if you like BB, you'll like The Sopranos (and The Shield and The Wire).
