Inspired by Leif's new user name

Anyone else think 'The Wire' is the best show in the history of Television?

It's up there... Rome and the first couple seasons of Dexter are also up there.

And of course King of the Hill, Simpsons, and other comedies. But those are a separate category for me.

It's unquestionably one of the best shows to come out of the past few decades. Breaking Bad and Mad Men come close to matching its greatness.

I have a really hard time deciding between The Wire, Mad Men and Breaking Bad*, but The Wire is definitely pretty great. Certainly one of the most intelligent shows in the history of television.

*Friday Night Lights is also up there. Probably the Sopranos and Deadwood as well but I've never watched those in their entirety.
