    The 2017-18 Virginia cavaliers basketball team of shows. Overrated, and frankly not very good!

    Christopher's intervention is the correct answer to "what is the best scene"

    Paulie & Chris in the Barrens is the funniest.

    I've never watched it either. Wife and I have been saying for 5 years that we need to go back and watch it but we haven't yet. Going to make a point to do it next time we have a lull in shows.

    what better way to celebrate your embarrassing loss to KSU bball, than to throw shots hours later at a top 5 ACC team in a Sopranos thread.

    Buddy we could blow a 100-point lead to a D-3 school and I’m still going to make fun of Virginia being the only 1-seed in history to lose to a 16-seed

    fwiw that 2017-2018 UVA teams had one of the most impressive regular season in ACC bball history. things just went dark at the end. the comparisons to the sopranos are endless.

    Currently on third watch, original run. 10th anniversary run and now.

    Forgot how funny the first three seasons were. And while humor is always in the series it grew darker after season three

    Pine Barrens is great but maybe my favorite episode is the one directly after it, Amour Fou. The three episodes to end Season 3 are so strong.

    Forced myself to watch it. Was not entertaining and felt lied to because it was a mushy drama far too often and never came close to being gangster.

    I will never understand the wire people, the wire was a great show but the acting was awful. It is not close to the sopranos.

    Breaking bad is closer. The wire is third
