Re: HBO's Boardwalk Empire
BE, Dexter, BB, GoT are ALL quality as far as I am concerned. But for me I'd say GoT is the show that's on another level. The Season 2, Blackwater episode is probably the best hour of TV I've ever seen in my life.
2015 will not only see the MCU beat the HP franchise for the #1 WW spot but it will also see Marvel Studios pass Pixar in terms of WW grosses($8.585 billion). Marvel Studios/MCU avg. annual profit: $621m(there ain't none higher. HP was the closest runner up with $541m when it was active).
