Homeland>The Wire>Breaking Bad



Although Homeland and Breaking Bad are still works in progress, I’m probably going against the grain to say I think Homeland is number one, at least through two seasons in comparison.

A lot of people say The Wire stands alone and there are no comparisons to this show, but I actually think Homeland and The Wire are a lot alike. At times, it seems like Homeland is The Wire on steroids. They both have a parallel between the “good guys” and the “bad guys” where you find in both shows corruption on both sides.

Obviously, the wire-tapping and video surveillance are also key in both series.
And, in comparison to Breaking Bad, I will say both shows (Homeland and Breaking Bad) are very hard to predict. It seems as though the writers are unique in their stream of consciousnesses.

I may amend this when Breaking Bad finishes up, but it’s so hard to end a series in classic fashion. But then again if a show can do it, Breaking Bad may just fascinate us all. Don’t get me wrong, The Wire is currently my second all-time favorite series, I’m just leaning toward Homeland now as number one in comparison to the first two series of both shows. And Breaking Bad is right in there. Actually they are all real close, but that's how I'd rank them. The only things I didn’t like about Homeland was it was a little sappy at times and Carrie sure does whine a lot.

I understand that goes with her character, though.
As far as the sects scenes goes, Homeland is tops. I didn’t realize Brody’s wife is Morena Baccarin from Firefly. WOW! I’d have to say Firefly is still in my top 5, too. I do need to watch Game of Thrones. That’s probably next for me.

What say you about ranking Homeland against the Wire and Breaking Bad and why. And where do you put the series Homeland in your all-time top rankings.

re: Homeland>The Wire>Breaking Bad


I can't put it into words, but The Wire is still tops for me. Once I got finished with The Wire, I watched the entire series again. It had that impact for me. Homeland Season1 was really good but it didn't stick with me. I haven't seen Season2 yet.

EDIT: For me, The Wire > Hoemland Season1 > Breaking Bad.

No way.

Homeland is a great show, but this is a slap in the face to The Wire.

Homeland is way too unrealistic IMO to be up there with the wire.

I'm watching BB now. Finished season 4. Very good show but no way it's better than the Wire or the Shield (havent seen Homeland). Just not as consistent

The second season of Homeland was weak and full of plot holes.

yup - season 1 was pretty good, but you knew it was building to something it couldnt actually accomplish.

season 2, while good enough for entertainment value, was a train wreck when compared to the best of the best out there.
