TV Poll: Is ‘The Sopranos’ the Best-Written Show of All Time?
Yesterday, the Writers Guild of America (WGA) released their list of the 101 Best Written TV Series of All Time and crowned HBO’s ‘The Sopranos’ No. 1. Do you agree with the choice?
The WGA’s list has many compelling candidates: in the top five, ‘Sopranos’ is followed by ‘Seinfeld,’ ‘The Twilight Zone,’ ‘All in the Family’ and ‘M*A*S*H.’ (For the full list, head over here.) Other notable titles are ‘Mad Men,’ ‘The Simpsons,’ ‘The Wire‘ and ‘Arrested Development.’
But, as always seems to be the case when the conversation of “Best TV Show Ever” comes up, ‘The Sopranos’ prevailed. By way of explanation, the WGA stated that ”no show has been more responsible for TV’s storytelling renaissance, in which writers use character both as engines for commenting on the contemporary world and for teasing out the ways in which action reflects psychology in the troubled inner lives of real people.”
So what do you think? Is ‘The Sopranos’ really the “Best Written” show of all time? Vote in our poll and let us know what some of your choices are in the comments below!
