Which of these shows is your favorite? I started off really liking the Sopranos but when I watched the Wire, that was in a totally different league in terms of what a TV show could achieve- the detail, the realisation of the cop world, the drug world and the education world. There was just such scope and ambition with the series. Now I'm watching Breaking Bad and that is such an intense show about the slow decline of the main character into a morally grey abyss. My pick- The Wire.
