So whatcha' ya'll favorite HBO series? Personally I think that I'm going to have to vote for The Sopranos, but Deadwood comes in at a close second. Come on in and cast a vote. I'm making Ten poll options only, so if I didn't get your show in there it's probably terrible.

The Sopranos

Game of Thrones
Entourage
Boardwalk Empire

Deadwood

Rome

Six Feet Under
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Band of Brothers
The Pacific

I'm looking forward to The Dark Tower, and American Gods which are coming soon I hope.

Band of Brothers is one of my favourite things ever created.
The Pacific was OK but nothing compared.

Got all the Sopranos boxsets, so will give them a watch in the future.
#6
I'm quite fond of Life's Too Short, which didn't make the cut. Apparently it's a finished series, how sad.

You kidding? Band of Brothers trumps all the others easily
My God, it's full of stars!

I'm a gigantic Song of Ice and Fire fan and love what Game of Thrones I've seen but seriously, Band of Brothers. Can't be beaten.

Band of Brothers, The Newsroom and Curb Your Enthusiasm are all good from what I've seen, but Game of Thrones wins and it's not even close for me.

1. The Wire
2. Game of Thrones
3. Boardwalk Empire/Curb Your Enthusiasm

The Wire. The fact that you didn't post it shows you're a knob.



This is the correct answer.

This is the only correct answer.

1. The Wire

10. Band of Brothers
11-x. everything else.


That is the distance by which the Wire owns. And I love Band of Brothers too.

The Wire really isn't that good Way too overhyped IMO

Aside from that I've only seen Game of Thrones and Band of Brothers, both are which are (were) 2 of the best shows on TV.
#27
lucky louie and game of thrones. characters in GoT are just so well developed (same in the books) but well done in the show
#28
I've only seen Game of Thrones and The Newsroom. Started to watch Boardwalk Empire, but it bored me to shit. And I like Steve Buscemi. And I got less bored by the Newsroom. That's how boring Boarwalk Empire is.
#29
I voted Game of Thrones but Deadwood would be my second choice. Band of Brothers and the Pacific were also great.
#30
Six Feet Under is the best thing to ever come of HBO. I don't understand the hype behind game of thrones, I tried and tried to get into it but it's just not even the slightest bit interesting to me.

I love Rome, Deadwood, Band of Brothers, Carnival, and Flight of the Concords. True Blood first and second seasons were great but became bland now. The Pacific was alright and I haven't seen the others. John Adams was a mini-series, but it was good.

Currently Game of Thrones is the best HBO show imo.

It's a slow moving show. It took me a while to get into it.
Totally worth it, though.

How long does it take to get good? I think I made it through like... 8 episodes. I never once was interested. Chalky was the only cool character.

^Possibly because it's on Showtime, but that's probably not it.

I thought it was good from the beginning, I just couldn't get myself to watch it for a while. I think I watched the first episode a good 10 times before I finally got interested enough to continue.

Also, Richard Harrow is the tits and way cooler than Chalky.

Chalky's pretty bitching, though.

While its not on the poll list, I liked Generation Kill a lot. Its a mini-series like Band of Brothers or the Pacific, so I think it counts.
#40
If you had put the series Newsroom on I would've voted for that but since it only has one season I understand. But how the **** are you not going to put The Wire on there? Seriously Deadwood came to your mind before The Wire did? Even though it's not my favorite it's easily the best thing they ever made besides The Sopranos and I can recognize that.
