‘The Sopranos’ is the Best Written TV Show of All Time


The Writers Guild of America has come up with a list of the Top 101 best written TV shows of all time.  Members of the group evaluated hundreds of programs, spanning 70 years of TV history, to come up with the list.

According to the group, The Sopranos is the best written TV series of all time.

I don’t agree with a lot of the Top 101.  Where’s AliceLaverne & Shirley, Three’s Company?  Those were classics!
