I think its HBO's best show, even if its their least promoted. You can really tell the creators had a master plan and they've stuck to it. There are never any throwaway episodes. Everything means something. Its really amazing to see these intricate storylines come together, and unlike The Sopranos, the don't just abandon plot threads at the end of the season.
