ComparisonsMany people compare The Sopranos to The Wire and Deadwood, but it seems to me that there are also interesting comparisons to be drawn with Twin Peaks. A scan of Google results for both shows together indicates that critics at least thought of the two shows together -- though most of the results seem to be comparing the later seasons of The Sopranos with the weak second half of Twin Peaks season 2 -- and that makes sense given that Twin Peaks was probably the best known "high quality" television series before The Sopranos.
If I were a better blogger, I would of course carry out this comparison in more (i.e., any) detail, but I just wanted to put the idea out there.
