    I don't think you're missing much with the latter, honestly. It started and ended as strong as you could for a basic cable show, but there was a whole lot of meandering soap opera stuff in the middle in my opinion.

    Sopranos lost its way for a spell too but also finished strong. Seasons 1-4 are some of the best television I've ever seen, certainly elevated the medium to new expectations.

    Possibly. I’ve seen 2-3 Sopranos and suffered through the first 1/3 season of Breaking Bad. But I don’t watch a bunch of tv

    Nope, haven’t seen any of either. I didn’t have HBO during the original run, and now that I do have it I haven’t bothered to start the series yet.

    Sopranos is underrated as one of the best comedy shows ever made.

    My father in law is obsessed and won't give up with me trying to watch it. I've seen about six or seven episodes and felt no desire to see it to the end.

    I was in a discussion with some friends about how there is nothing on tv like the Sopranos. The Sopranos is my all time favorite, with Breaking Bad # 2. I don't even bother with tv anymore, except for the odd movie on TCM. If I had my the tv would Go. The Sopranos and BB were the high mark...

    I appreciate that my family members liked the Sopranos. I watched one and only one season opener. It was good but I'm not sure why. I don't even know what Breaking Bad is or what it is about. That reaffirmed my position that TV series are just a waste of time for myself. JMHO

    I did not see The Sopranos at all until my friend Kelly loaned me the box set.
    It was instantly addictive.
    The characters were all brilliantly drawn and portrayed.
    Most of the central male characters are both wonderfully human, and completely monstrous.
    In short, I loved it!

    I have only seen a few episodes of Sopranos and have no desire to binge watch it. I did binge watch all of Breaking Bad and it was outstanding!

    Yeah, I get stubborn that way when something goes from nothing to EVERYTHING in what is seemingly a matter of minutes. I've never seen even a portion of a episode of Sopranos or Breaking Bad.

    We had the full series on DVD from China. Probably cost $3, bought it at a market on a trip.
