    Your Top 5 Series

    We talk about TV shows a lot but let's try and put your top 5 down, and the order counts! So you are rating them against each other, not just choosing your top 5:

    1) The Wire
    2) Sopranos
    3) Breaking Bad
    4) Friday Night Lights
    5) Mad Men

    House of Cards(US) has only one season but it was one of the best series i have ever watched and would bounce one of these if continues.

    1) Breaking Bad
    2) Justified
    3) Love and Marriage (Al Bundy, old comedy about a shoe salesman)
    4) The wire
    5) Pilars of the Earth (only 3 long episodes, so more like a movie. Similar settings as The Games of Thrones, just better)

    A bit surprised you have not found BB worthy of a place. Recall you said something about Cranston's earlier role in Malcolm. Which is a shame.

    Of course, it's all subjective. I'm not that into The Wire, even though I believe I gave it a fair shot. On the third watch of BB now and it just oozes sheer quality in my opinion. From the acting, the characters, the storyline, the arches, the beautiful shots, the retrospect scenes etc. etc. Almost lyrical. (Like say The Fly episode, which was reminiscent in a sense of the Parking Garage episode in Seinfeld). Not to mention, they may actually know when to quit.
