The Wire

May 6th, 2008 (12:27 pm)

Godammit. I didn't need another tv show to be captured by.

Whoever kept recommending The Wire to me (was it you, jetpack_monkey?) finally got me to try out the first season. And by about the time episode 3 came around, I realised I was hooked.

Dammit.

So far, six episode in, it has to be mainly Lester (last name Freamon? - having trouble getting to catch everyone's names) with a liking of Omar to go along with it.

Fascinating stuff.

You've picked two big fan favourites, I also really like Bunk, Sergeant Jay Landsmen(fat guy), Bubbles and Bodie. Stringer Bell is cool too.

Amen, man. I started Season 1 on Netflix about 3 weeks ago. I am now halfway through season 2 (having purchased it) and own season 3. I'm sure that I'll be purchasing season 4 before i'm done with 3. This show is amazing.

Yeah, now I think about it - could well be you. Git. :P

Six episodes in, and the first thing I did after a long, hard day at work was stick on another ep. Yeah, I think I'm hooked.

Loved the one scene with McNulty and Bunko(?) solving a murder, just speaking in variations of the word "fuck". Magnificent.

Have you been warned? It will crush your soul and make you like it. But I pretty much concur that it's the best thing to ever come out of television, ever.
