Wire > Deadwood > Oz > Sopranos
you're now going to have to slip John Adams in there somewhere
and speaking of Oz
I've been rolling through OnDmnd with it lately
I've noticed some of The Wire's actors in it that make their acting skills look more like B-rate soap operas compared to The Wire
this whole damn show actually has the feel of a soap opera ..... a very twistd, incarcerated, homosexual soap opera
It is a bit of a soap opera.. It's completely preposterous but you can't look away. The irony being a good amount of Wire stars are also on Oz..
What season are u on?
whatever's currently running OnDemand (Nashville Comcast)
A Town without Pity
Buster Poindexters last episode
Oz is great. The melodrama is high, and some of the acting is horrible (the guy who plays Carver on The Wire had some terrible moments), but it's enjoyable. It's better than the Sopranos, because while The Wire and Oz have episodes that are hit and miss, Sopranos has had entire SEASONS that are miss (Four, Five, and some of Six come to mind).
I would agree with all of that...
They should run another series similar to Band of Brothers
I still have trouble getting away from the TV when it's on and I've seen all the episodes numerous times.
The John Adams miniseries is made by the same folks as Band of Brothers. The people behind The Wire are doing an Iraq War docu-series as well called Generation Kill.
They are also the people behind The Corner, which was somewhat of a B-more prequel to The Wire - definitely worth renting if you're a fan..
Thanks for the link Cruds..
Yeah I was excited to hear that Hanks was producing the John Adams series, he took great care in telling Easy Company's story. That's the first I've seen about Generation Kill, couldn't tell a whole lot from that trailer, but I don't doubt the quality will be excellent.
