Top Ten Best Written Adult TV Drama SeriesBillyv I made this list based on series of which I've seen all or most episodes. There are several highly acclaimed shows I haven't seen so please add any you believe are deserving.
The Top Ten
A toss-up for #1 between this and Breaking Bad.
Never watched it but I have heard of it. - DynastiNoble
In terms of overall execution (acting, directing etc) I would choose Breaking Bad any day. However, since we're talking about writing alone, then I gotta give it to the Wire. The dialogue, the themes, the complex plot- everything about this show's writing is fantastic. You can analyze this show in so many different ways which is a testament to the genius of David Simin and his team of writers. - afex
Well, yes, the list topic is writing. However, the casting and acting in The Wire is also superb. - Billyv
Amazing show. I liked this one better than Sopranos. - Mcgillacuddy
It's close between the two for me. I'm captivated by all the elements of The Wire, but I give The Sopranos the writing edge for creativity and as art, as many of The Wire's characters and situations are directly based on real people and events - Billyv
