List of my favorite cable series ever. Also,

miniseries (only 1 season) like Band of Brothers, John Adams, and Pacific aren't series and don't count.

1. The Wire
2. The Sopranos
3. Breaking Bad
4. Treme (when Steve Earle, Allen Toussaint, Dr. John, Rebirth Brass Band, Kermit Ruffin, Trombone Shorty, and Galactic appear and play music pretty regular, it has to be good).
5. Mad Men
6. Curb Your Enthusiasm
7. Bosch
8. Ray Donovan
9. Six Feet Under
10. Boardwalk Empire

Of those, I have seen Curb and not that much of it.

I want to watch Treme just for the tunes, but never have.

Treme is right up your alley. You'd totally dig it.

No show has felt as "real" as that one did. Shows like "The Shield" or "NYPD blue" to me came close but they always felt like they were trying to be gritty and real, whereas, The Wire just felt like reality. With the way the world is right now, I think my interests are in wanting escapism more than reflection in the shows I watch so I doubt I'll rewatch the show for a long time.

And of course, Omar is probably one of the best TV characters of the last few decades.

It's outdated, sure. But I'm wondering why they quit posting over a decade ago? They could have easily monetized this more.

I don't think monetizing blogs was a thing with Frontpage 2.0

They wrote books and did live touring shows, so they tried to monetize it.

No idea why they stopped posting.

1. The Wire - You nailed it. Best show in the history of TV. Period.
2. Breaking Bad
3. Sopranos
4. Boardwalk
5. Ozark
6. Yellowstone

I'd probably mix up rankings depending on how #5 and 6 finish.

Never even heard of alot of those shows. I never watched the HBO/Showtime stuff because I never had any of those channels. Most of mine are older, I don't watch much TV any more.


the ones I can think of, ones I deemed worthy of recording if I couldn't watch "live":

1. X-Files - think I saw all of them, and again in syndication
2. Miami Vice - any show that made you wait until 10pm on Fridays to go out must be good. It was must-see.
3. Walking Dead (but I finally tired of it)
4. Justified - Boyd Crowder was hilarious, loved his antics
5. 24 - Jack Bauer. Baddassssssss.
