The Wire

Just recommending that everyone goes out and at least rents/dl's the first season of the Wire. The show (IMO) is the most consistently excellent show I've ever seen. I think it's probably the best show I've ever seen, it's certainly up there with 24 and South Park.

The show basically chronicles crime in Baltimore via a number of different aspects and looks at Baltimore through a variety of lenses (ie the first season focuses on the projects, the second on the working class/docks, the third on politics, the fourth on the schools and supposedly the fifth/final season will focus on the media).

Re: The Wire

Yeah.
I started watching during Season 2 and went back and watched one and have been hooked since then.
Great writing, chatacters, direction... the whole package just like all the HBO series I've seen. (Sopranos, Deadwood, The Wire, Rome)

Re: The Wire

One more season to go focusing on the press. Last season (4) was again, outstanding.

Re: The Wire

Go out and watch The Corner

it's a 2 disc DVD at blockbuster w/ 6 episodes based on a true story...it's basically what The Wire is based off of...in fact in season 4 of the Wire one of the character's names is dropped in it...Deandre

it's really depressing though. just a heads up

Re: The Wire

Yeah... tell me about it. The only think that keeps The Wire from sliding you in to a hopeless angst is the wry humor so well-laced within the show.
