The Wire vs The Sopranos

Reading the final matchup of Vulture’s Drama Derby and as I predicted, it would come down to these shows. I’ve watched The Wire twice in its entirety and anyone who knows me knows I love the show. I haven’t seen The Sopranos and that’s in my TV debt. I haven’t finished reading the article yet, but I already know who the winner is. In just its scope of themes, deep acting bench, great writing, it’s going to be The Wire.

My dad’s been on my mind lately, I don’t know why. It’s not his birthday or death anniversary. Maybe because he influenced us kids about shows like this. He loved drama shows and I remember watching Hill Street Blues with him — which is probably why I also love cop and drama shows. He would have loved these articles. 😉

Yep: It’s The Wire for the win.

My name is Terrie. I write for a living and blog for pleasure. Some days, I get up in the morning and know precisely what kind of day it is. At other times, I get knocked over for a loop. People seem to like confiding in me. When I was younger, I thought I knew everything and can tell you what you need to do if you ask me. Now that I'm older, I realize I don't know anything. That's been my motivation for the blog and for writing. To figure out the unknown and unknowable.
