After Planet Earth, these occupy the top 2 spots on IMDb's Top TV Series list. They are also amongst the most acclaimed and talked about TV shows right now, so I thought this could make for an interesting poll.

I enjoy both a lot, but I don't think either ever become more than just an interesting and entertaining show. That said, they do that very well. Both are deserved of their critical praise, but are simultaneously overrated I think.

Gonna go with Breaking Bad.

Game of Thrones didn't hold my attention at all.

Why do you ask me this? I've been going over this with myself for the last week. While I can say BB is the better made/better written/better whatever show, I have a real affinity for GoT, and in the end find it more addictive than BB. It is essentially a tie, but I'll throw it to GoT.

Based on the two seasons of GoT and the three seasons of Breaking Bad I've seen, Game of Thrones.

Based on purely the first season of each (because I've only seen the First Season of Breaking Bad) Game of Thrones and it isn't particularly close.

Sound logic. Definitely in a position to vote.

I didn't vote. I'm weighing both shows in a fair manner to both. But I will say that if you're voting on Breaking Bad right now without Game of Thrones being completed the statement deserves to be tossed right back at you and indeed the whole poll design.

I don't think it is even a fair way actually. Both are structured so differently, that simply going season by season doesn't make a lot of sense. Looking at it that way, I think Game of Thrones and The Wire are much more comparable. Season 1 of Game of Thrones basically completes an entire main character's story (yes, I know there are several other "main" characters), whereas in Breaking Bad, it's just the tip of the Heisenberg.

But you're right about it not being entirely fair to vote Breaking Bad now, but it makes a lot more sense than what you said.

This i assuming I can't take into context the completion of a single character arc (the importance of which you are vastly overstating) in one show and adjust my evaluation based on that. But I have done so and therefore my point remains. But seriously are you suggesting that Game of Thrones completion of a single main character (out of a dozen of them) and merely one of 8 point of view characters represents a bigger wrapping up point when both 1st seasons end with clear carry overs to the following season?

No, I'm just using that to reinforce how differently the shows are structured. So much so that there is almost no way to properly compare them. Fwiw, Game of Thrones is my third favourite show ever. I just thought your initial post was incredibly dismissive.
