    Breaking Bad comes in just behind The Wire and The Sopranos. Easily the three best ever though. 

    Game of Thrones can kick rocks. 
    The Americans was fantastic. Behind BB and The Wire for me, but close with Sopranos IMO.
    It's a hopeless situation...

    It’s pretty awesome how they never followed up on Rawls’ appearance at the gay bar.

    Here's the thing for me. When most of the robustly developed characters from The Wire met their maker, I felt that shit.

    The Sopranos, on the other hand, was full of one-dimensional deplorable, piece-of-shit, knuckle-dragging oxygen thieves. That includes Dr. Melfi. Hell, she might even top the list.

    Bunk was my all-time favorite television character for a good while.

    I think Sister Night has bested Bunk at this point, though.

    Hard to pick a favorite. Everyone had some great moments throughout.

    Think Bodie was my favorite from the streets. Can't really beat Bunk from the cops.

    I rewatched the Sopranos a few months back.  Great show but not "the greatest".  I would put GOT and Breaking Bad ahead of it.

    Agree on Breaking Bad.  That's my top show of all time.  Sopranos is a close 2nd.  GOT would have been up there if not for that horrific final season....I still randomly think about that sometimes and get pissed off.

    Yeah Chalky's right up there with Omar. Two amazing characters. What a great actor. 

    Also, I didn't realize (or I guess I forgot) that he was in the Sopranos until my re-watch this summer. Jackie Jr stayed with him and his daughter in the projects right before he was killed.

    RIP, Great Actor

    Wonder if its another Fentanyl incident, you never know whats in that shit on the street...but if dealers are cutting Coke with Fentanyl they should never see the light of day

    3 people died over the weekend at a hollywood party, one of the guys was a comedian...Lone survivor was Darius Rucker's ex gf....hope she pulls through to give info on the douche dealers identity(s)

    Leonard from Hap & Leonard -- amazing - lighter & funny, but still weighted, like everything he did.
    Montrose from Lovecraft Country -- more of the same awesomeness.

    Really one of the best.
