    PJ Soul---forget any of those other shows you mentioned. Watch The Wire and The Sopranos immediately.

    Also--The Newsroom is garbage after the first season anyway!
    I do plan on watching The Wire for sure. The Sporanos? Well... I'm sure I'll probably get around to it eventually. If it's on Netflix or Amazon Prime. ;) It just seems like a LOT of fucking mob stuff man. Too much for me I think. I love Goodfellas and Casino as much as anyone, but the Italian mobster theme isn't generally my cup of tea. I even hate The Godfather. Can't get through it. Never seen the ending.

    To me Sopranos is the best.
    Breaking Bad I loved but I found it too sad and distressing.

    The Sopranos is a meandering waste of time after season 2.

    Common misconception. It's more psychology/family dynamic stuff than mob stuff. A lot of people who expected it be like those movies all the time were often disappointed by all the other psychoanalysis stuff that was going on...

    Loved Sopranos.  Game of Thrones now sits upon the iron throne and is the best HBO series to date

    Yup.  "Waste management" was but a part of the series - and those parts were really well done, as well as the others.

    At least watch the thing before mistakenly branding it!

    The Sopranos - it started it all.  Is there a Breaking Bad if the Sopranos was not a huge hit for cable?

    True, but even those episodes had these beautiful and interesting moments like the surgery light, seeing Livia, the traveling and identity concepts...

    BUT IT'S IN ALL CAPS =)

    I liked The Leftovers very much, but that wasn't even in the Sopranos league.

    No, as I said, I did catch and a handful of episodes when it was originally airing. I understand what the deal is with the show. It just didn't get me particularly interested.
