The Bottom Line
I’m a big Sopranos fan. It’s such an excellent series. My only gripe is with the ending *no spoilers* being too open for interpretation. They never got around to closing the loop on it.
I know The Wire is another very popular series – some hail it as the best series of all time. I haven’t watch so I can’t comment on that, but it’s going to take a lot for me to top shows like Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, and Game of Thrones.
