For right now it's The Wire. Breaking Bad is getting close, but I won't be able to put it at number 1 until I see the final 8 episodes. Sopranos is in third place, and Dexter really isn't anywhere near any of the other 3.

The fourth spot should've been The Shield or Six Feet Under.

im surprised at the few votes for the Sopranos. Buncha 90s babies in here....

It was groundbreaking....laid the foundation....a benchmark for how we rate TV series

seasons 4 and 5 of The Sopranos were very, very weak.

The Wire didn't have a weak season, neither did Six Feet Under or Breaking Bad thus far.

you know that that "Butcher" storyline was terrible
Season 2 of The Wire is generally considered a weak season. When I watched the whole series not to long ago for the first time, season two easily took me the longest to get through. Every other season I was watching four episodes in a row. Season two I was bored by the second episode of every sit down.

:skipcmonso n:

Some of the best acting in television history and you call it bad.

Just because you can't relate to the characters doesn't make it bad acting

How can say The Wire had bad acting and then vote for Dexter? Aside from Michael C. Hall, the main cast on that show is pretty bad.

There'd be no Sopranos without Oz, though.

i knew i'd get backlash for that comment. to be fair, i only saw a few episodes of the wire, but from what i saw, the acting was indeed very bad

on dexter, debra is really the only character that really bugs me because of acting. shes gotten better though. on the few episodes of the wire i saw, it was multiple characters that struggled delivering lines

i've heard seasons 2 and 5 both get called weak and during my first go around i definitely thought 2 was real boring. but now that i've seen the entire series 3(?) times i like all the seasons. i think i just didn't like 2 at first since it was such a different show than 1.
I suppose that could be true, I liked five on my first watch other than that outrageous McNulty storyline. But I HATED 2 on my first and only watch. Probably like you said though, I NEVER envisioned that being a plot on The Wire. Went into it with one mindset and that came completely out of left field. I may like it more on a second watch through, but I've never watched a TV series in full twice. To many good ones constantly coming out to do that. May get around to it for my favorite's eventually.

Dexter has absolutely cringe worthy acting.

The Wire has amazing acting, even if a lot of it isn't even acting. Most of those characters are like that in real life (See: Snoop) but they played their roles so perfectly that I have no idea how it could bother you when watching a show that is designed to be that way. If you can't relate to them at all, then so be it, but I grew up in the suburbs and I could relate to damn near every character on that show and I thought the acting was superb. Most people agree.

This. The acting on the Wire is some of the best ever.
