Default HBO's The Wire

I just bought season one and it is the best drama series I have ever seen. Gritty, believable, and awesome. Beats the pants off The Shield. Thank god for Ebay and not having to pay the standard $90 for HBO dvds.

I think 24 is a lot better. Some of the thugs are not believable at all.

The last season was crazy. I think it was season three.
If the Star Wars douche hadn't f%&@ed up my hustle I could get it from the torrent sites.

Goddamn nerds are ruining this country!

In what way? Most if not all the characters are very well acted. 24 is just too way over the top for me.

I agree that it can be a bit too much drama at times, but I was reading that the scenarios they use are pretty spot on when it comes to terrorist plots. I just think the wire is too slow at times. Also, growing up around a lot of drug dealers, the characters just don't seem real to me. The actors do seem to be very realistic in their protrayals of the cops, but I'm not buying most of the thugs.

I borrowed season 1 and 2 from a friend recently and watched them both in about 3 weeks. Was pretty good, I still like deadwood better as hbo series go. And the first 3 seasons of sopranos.

I was hoping someone would say that. I am on the 9th episode of season 1 and it has been fantastic so far. The narrative structure that carries the length of the season is addictive as hell.

So, I'm watching American Gangster on BET right now, they're profiling Melvin Williams, a drug kingpin in Baltimore from the 1950s on. He's the inspiration for Avon Barksdale in the series The Wire. He also has multiple cameos in The Wire.

I can't find a picture of him right now, but you'll recognize him.

On another note, American Gangster is a VERY good series. IT profiles different black american bad guys who have revolutionized the crime business. Like I said, it's on BET if you want to catch it.


edit: he plays the Deacon in the series, they just mentioned it on the show.

HBO


It's the first episode of the final season. Do yourself a favor and rent/ download the first four seasons.

Since all previous threads have failed I'll bump this one.

Tonights episode.... Marlo is crazy. I can't believe how developed the plot has gotten in such a short time this season. They're building up to something huge, and knocking off major players on the way.

^^ You might want to put a spoiler warning?

I definitely have liked the show since the beginning, but with the writer's strike going on right now, this is a breath of fresh air from the asstarded reality and game shows.

I can someone remind me how Herc got hired on by the lawyer? I don't remember him leaving the force for private work. I'm sure it was because of his screwup, maybe related to losing the camera?

Camera was part of it, but the whole fake informant thing to justify the extra funds is what really sealed his fate on the force.

Yeah I did see that part, so I guess that is the best explanation we're going to get? I thought maybe I forgot something from the end of last season where he decided to do private work.
