"The Wire" vs. "Deadwood" vs. "The Sopranos"

Three outstanding TV and film critics -- Alan Sepinwall, Andrew Johnston and Matt Zoller Seitz -- recently sat down for a roundtable discussion about which David (Simon, Milch or Chase) had created the greatest TV drama: "The Wire," "Deadwood" or "The Sopranos."

The results can be streamed at The House Next Door community blog or downloaded (for a limited time) as a podcast in iTunes format.

For me, the edge has to go to Simon of "The Wire," by a nose over Milch of "Deadwood," although this may be unfair, as Simon had another excellent David (Mills) helping out with a script or two over the years.
