The Wire - Final Season soon..

Post by kaden » Wed Dec 12, 2007 10:24 pm

January 6th begins the new season of The Wire on HBO. I'm not sure if anyone else watches this, but I highly recommend it. The Sopranos is fucking great.. that goes without saying. But, this show is damn near equal in my opinion. Just has a less viewer base since it's harder to get into, and flows like a novel on-screen.

Gives a well-rounded basis on the show and it's incredibly realistic politics within the drug world, police department, and city hall.

Anybody catch the last season? Im waiting for the dvd release.

Also: I'm watching through this again. It's funny. This is like the only series I can watch through more than once and still enjoy the hell out of it.

i downloaded all 5 seasons and watched them back to back for a week.

season 1 is epic, season 3 is better, maybe the best 13 episodes of any show ever. season 2 is good. seasons 4 and 5 were kind of a letdown after amazing season 3 but even bad The Wire is better than anything else on tv.

i definitely recommend everyone watch this show.

For some strange reason I thought you'd be all over season 2 as the best. I really can't choose which season I think is the best... which I guess is a good thing.

Most people say Season 2 is one of the weakest- 3 and 4 are my favorites, but I need to revisit season 1.
