That's fine. It really doesn't belong in this thread title.

I liked all four of these shows, but don’t think they are the top four shows of all time, or belong together, other than three of them being HBO shows.

The Wire, Deadwood and Sopranos are the high watermark for HBO and TV itself.

Joe, you need to watch the show because you don't want to be like my cousin. And two, don't major in media studies, university level liberal arts is a joke


I'd give it a 50/50 chance your cousin makes more money than you.

Mickey, do you think you're heading into a lucrative profession? If you're making good money a few years from now, you will be the exception not the rule.
Also, since when is how much money one makes a measure of the validity of their profession? If a job is a joke, a job is a joke. I don't care if you make a million dollars. Buying a stock option on Monday and selling it on Wednesday for a million dollars profit is a joke job. Adjuncting undergrad liberal arts classes for 36k a year is a joke job. Growing potatoes and spinach is not a joke

I've seen zero episodes of Sopranos and West Wing.

I've seen one episode of The Wire.

I've seen five (?) episodes of Deadwood.

The Wire definitely takes time to get it's hooks into you. What made you give up on Deadwood?

Where does "librarian" rank on the joke/not-a-joke scale?
