I haven't yet started watching this show but i sure do plan on it. How would you guys say its ranked? Is it as good as the wire and breaking bad?
The Sopranos is my first love but the Wire is sort of smarter in a social, economic, political and philosophical way. However, the Sopranos is harrowing just like the Wire and the writing can be just as intelligent and beyond The Wire when it wants. The advantage The Sopranos has is the Italo-American Mafia banter which offers so many laughs throughout the show but it doesn't turn it in to a joke, it's still a drama drenched with funny moments.
If you love The Wire, you wont be disappointing with The Sopranos. (I've watched both shows 3 times)
@feckyerlife: I don't see any similarities between Walter White and Tony Soprano. Please elaborate.
