Yeah, that would SUCKKK if that happened to Boardwalk. I do remember hearing that it was picked up for another season, though.

Better than Sopranos though? I don't think so. I was never once bored with The Sopranos from season 1-5. Not one weak sub-plot, throughout those seasons. Boardwalk Empire is fantastic, but I'd be lying if I said it hasn't lost me a couple of times, with it's pacing.
It definitely has the potential to be. And I don't ever remember being bored with Boardwalk. The show pretty much puts me in a hypnotic state whenever I'm watching.

I wouldn't put it ahead of Breaking Bad, Deadwood, The Wire, or the first four seasons of Dexter either.
I still need to check out Breaking Bad, but honestly... I'd put it right up there with Deadwood. And it's WAY better than Dexter, IMO.

I'm a HUGE fan of the show, in case you couldn't tell.
