Re: The Simpsons vs The Sopranos

It looks like The Wire has now entered the top race to claim the #1 spot. I still have a lot of work to do before the top 1000 is finalized, but now it looks like neither the Simpsons or Sopranos might be on top.

Re: The Simpsons vs The Sopranos

Always felt like The Wire was more acclaimed than Sopranos. Rather, maybe it's just more appreciated or something, there's just a lot more discourse around it in critical circles, as if there's more to appreciate than The Sopranos. I can be wrong as I don't have all forms of acclaim open right now ...

So I've thought about doing the same thing that Acclaimed Music has done to television shows, but I'm a late-bloomer when it comes to TV, so I've been overwhelmed by the large amount of shows that I've never, ever heard of.
