    Default The Wire Vs Breaking Bad

    Both commonly believed to be two of the best shows ever created; thus the comparison/debate.

    It's best if you only choose to vote if you have watched both the shows.

    And while at at mention why you prefer one over the other.

    I wanted to wait till the end of breaking bad; but most endings of most shows induce mixed feelings than positive. Of course one can choose to wait till the end - which is today - to vote or comment.

    Edit -

    Fuckit I couldn't add the voting options because of the forum downtown.

    @any-madmin who comes across this; please add a poll with the following options:

    I have watched both the shows and think The Wire is better.
    I have watched both the shows and think Breaking Bad is better.
    I am an asshole and I voted anyway though I have only watched one of the shows.

    Make it a multiple voting option poll; so that the assholes can vote for the third option.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the 'mention' but I've only ever seen The Wire. I've never watched so much as a second of Breaking Bad.

    Although 'Breaking Bad' outperforms 'The Wire' in terms of acting, production values and thrill, I do prefer 'The Wire', because it is wider, deeper, richer in culture, more reflective and simply more significant as a television series.

    This is pretty accurate. Overall engaging power goes to breaking bad for me though. This Sunday is the second to last episode right? It's not the series finale?

    I don't even know what those shows are, and I have never seen a single episode of either of them.

    As for "two of the best shows ever created," that judgment is relative to the shows you've actually watched. I can't really judge for those two; however, the first season of 21 Jump Street was phenomenal, as was every episode of The Paper Chase; The Mary Tyler Moore Show was really good back in the day, M*A*S*H was outstanding in its first season, etc. I don't really see how you can judge something as "two of the best" when there have been so many that existed during and well before your time.
