    It seems that most people who like the Wire don't like GOT
    Does anyone around here like both?

    I work a lot so I haven't found time to watch GOT or Breaking Bad. Right now, The Wire is my favorite show with Oz in second.

    Enjoyed the wire, although not enough to absolutely rave about.

    Not a fan of GoT.

    I really haven't noticed that at all. I think the wire was exceptional and game of thrones is extremely good.

    I love them both. I actually find the series similar in a way. Just in the way that there's no one main character, no Tony Soprano, Dexter or Walter White so to speak.

    HBO just randomly aired the season finale to the Wire season 4.

    Perhaps one of the greatest hours of television a person can see.

    Absolutely brilliant and possibly the Wires greatest season. Those kids. You just feel badly for all of them by the end. Tough tough world we love in

    I wasn't a fan of the school stuff.
    S3 is about as good as a tv show can get.

    Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy some of the greatest television evr.

    And yeah season 3 is good but lacks the heart and compassion of season 4.

    I like both, but the wire holds a special distinction for me, having been younger when I first saw it.

    Prefer GoT.

    But both are better than Breaking Bad.
