    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.

    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.

    "music isn't something you can hold in your hands like football betting cards, or coke"

    One of my favorite lines from Christopher - coke and football betting cards being the first two tangible things that popped into his head.
