I also have the Sopranos on my list but I'll see if/how I can make time for it, fuckin' college.
You shouldn't watch the Wire for explosive and fast paced story and action. It's a show which is as realistic as they come, so don't judge it from it's first episode and let the plot develop. The characters are amazing. I am sure that, by the end of first season you will be amazed by the quality and by the end of the series you will be like: "best tv show ever".

That includes the first season as well. What you described as good is still just "decent" for me. Just finished watching the 5th season. I still feel the same about it (Eric Northman- Viking Vamp is pretty cool, though, gives the show a little bonus).
I dunno, TB's first season had more good things than bad things, so I say it's good, but I am actually in the same boat as you - it's decent. Later, the bad things start overwhelming the good by a huge margin, and thus, the fourth season was horrendous for me. Not that there weren't moronic things happening before, but at least it was entertaining enough at the time.
