Your personal "Mount Rushmore" for HBO series
HBO has hit some major homeruns over the past 20-25 years. What would you say makes up your Mount Rushmore of HBO TV series?

I'm looking at the list of series and this is tough. Right now I'm thinking my list would look something like:

1) Game of Thrones

2) Entourage - This was playing while I was in high school & college and it was absolutely perfect

3) Band of Brothers / The Pacific (I'm making this president's head a Siamese twin)

4) The Sopranos

*** I'm combining BoB & the Pacific since they cover the same war and there are only 1 season of each.

I could switch out my 3 and 4 with Veep, Deadwood, Silicon Valley or even True Detective.

I know a popular choice will be the Wire. By the time I finally got around to watching the Wire it was really outdated. I still enjoyed the hell out of it but that took it out of my potential top 4.

*edit* Shoutout to Cathouse for getting me through some tough times at the ripe ages of 14-15

And for your time, here's a picture of Sloan

If Barry maintains speed there's no doubt that it jumps into my top 4

GOT is definitely better than the wire, six feet under and deadwood

Barry will probably usurp Bored to Death in time.

Just finished the Wire and it is not that great. Very underwhelming.

I watched about 3 episodes but couldn't get into it. To each his own.
