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.
