While I always considered it good, I was also a Sopranos hater; given its press over shows like The Wire that I thought was, and still is, far better. That said, HBO has been running the entire six season series every night and, wow, is it great television. For those who haven't bothered, highly recommended.
I wonder if this show will go down as what killed the "Movie." I can speak for myself where I'd rather binge watch 4 hours of great TV, in my own home, with a guarantee of a few hours more than sit in a dank movie theater for 2 hours of beginning, middle, plus- end in predictable fashion. Breaking Bad is better than any movie I've seen in recent years. Game Of Thrones has a comparable budget. What made The Wire great was the development over five seasons; and the development within the seasons.
