In general, I loved the Sopranos, but it went off-the-wagon too often to be the greatest of all time. I love Breaking Bad, but it has some clearly unrealistic moments that I find it hard to get past. (The whole plane crash/Jane thing comes to mind.) Mad Men shouldn't even be in the discussion. It's a good show, but not nearly as captivating as the others. Maybe if they had been smart enough to write Betty off a few seasons ago...

I vote for The Wire.

I'll try to get around to it soon, although it may be tough to work in, given MrsG and I recently started re-watching The Sopranos, and we're not watching as much TV lately as we once did. Perhaps I will pick it up when the first-run season ends for the networks in the next month or so.

i just bought the box set. maybe ill send it to you.

Interestingly, I worked on that show. Obviously, it was originally supposed to be a mini-series, so there really was no initial end game vision. Same with The 4400.

With The 4400, wasn't there another season planned and then they got cancelled? Hence the ambiguous ending.

I sincerely appreciate the offer, but I can get it on Netflix. I'd love to have them all at once, but I'd be worried I'll damage them or something.

They had to end it in a hurry, and they made the same mistake as Lost, lacking a end-game vision. They literally sat down one and chose who the final cylons were, mid season.

Highlander, The Series is quite obviously the best TV program ever.

I started watching Breaking Bad yesterday. I watched four episodes. I think the writing is great, but the direction is less great.
