To be completely honest, I've never really even watched the Sopranos. It has never really held a strong appeal for me. Crime dramas aren't really my forte. However, from everything I've heard it is an excellent series. Can anyone give me a solid synopsis on it? If it piques my interest I may just check it out.

"Anthony Soprano is a New Jersey mob capo in the midst of a mid-life crisis. He and his wife Carmela have their ups and downs, his relationship with his therapist is strained, and he must deal now deal with two grown children who have problems of their own. In addition to his personal problems, the "waste management" business isn't what it used to be and there is always the threat of death or arrest. Dealing with the volatile personalities of his mob colleagues is a daily life or death challenge of its own."

The Wire is my personal favourite

I'd put Boardwalk Empire, Deadwood and Breaking Bad over The Sopranos also.

Still got to get around to watching Rome. I heard the first series was great but the second was bad because they had to rush everything due to cancellation.

I'm interested. I think I'll at least try out the first season and see if I like it or not. Thanks!

The wire is one of the boring series I ever watched, i've stopped in the middle of the 1st season I couldnt take it anymore, Boardwalk Empire&Breaking Bad are pretty good but to put them over the sopranos I think it's a little pretentious..

It's all really based on personal opinion when it comes down to it. If he enjoyed Boardwalk Empire, Deadwood, and Breaking Bad more than the Sopranos, of course he's going to put them over it. In my mind, it would be more pretentious to place one higher than the other based on a figmented moral obligation brought on by someone else's high opinion of it. Granted, a lot of people loved the Sopranos, but a lot of people hated it too.

Basically, he would be saying that "I love these other shows but I'll say the Sopranos is better (even though I don't mean it) because other people think it's better." That would be a borderline poser statement.

This is why I hate when people say that one show is better than another. Heck, I like a lot of shows that other people greatly dislike but that's just my opinion. I'm not going to say that the shows I like are "better", just that I enjoy them more. Isn't that what it's all about anyway?
