i did not know this :haha:

Remember the crushing death of President Bartlet’s Secretary, Mrs. Landingham? It was so upsetting that, in real life, a San Francisco assemblyman, Kevin Shelley, adjourned a session of the California Congress to grieve for her, calling Landingham a “great American” whose “contributions to the nation were too numerous to count.” Shelley resigned from his position in 2005 under a cloud of scandal.

I'll just take this opportunity to say that I recently rewatched both Breaking Bad and The Sopranos and I am more convinced than ever of the latter's dominance. What a show.

Breaking bad doesnt rank..not even against Sopranos which was the runt of the litter in terms of Deadwood, the wire and west wing..

y'know? it is a great series but it will never meet the level of those in the title..lets be honest....that ending..i was happy for them..but seriously? the writing is not there to compete.

Absolutely. Breaking Bad has a few great moments and two phenomenal leads, but there are a LOT of holes. Nearly the entire supporting cast, in terms of acting and actual characters, is relatively weak. Entire half-seasons and lots of episodes are wasted on unimportant storylines that add nothing to the endgame. And the series ending is very weak. I enjoyed it while it was on, but it doesn't hold up as well on repeat viewings. Sopranos, The Wire, and Mad Men all blow it out of the water. Deep casts where few to no weaknesses stand out, even the most out-of-left-field episodes feel worth it. Really just more complete worlds.

Finally fucking watching the Sopranos.

Its embarrassing its taken my this long to watch the show. Few episodes into Season 2.

Man, some of the shit is dated (clothing, hair, set decorations, and even the way it is filmed) but what a great show so far. Obviously.

You have obviously never married a woman whose extended family hails from north Jersey.

I feel similarly, though I still really like the theory Walter White died in the cabin in New Hampshire. The finale was just a fever dream.

As of now i dont see how this will surpass Breaking Bad for me. I feel opposite from a few of you it seems. Though, admittedly, im very early into the show.

I will say that the supporting characters in Sopranos are all fantastic.
