Finished Season 4 and have started 5. Hated to see Bodie go down. :sadbanana:  I have no clue why I didn't watch this show sooner. :wub: 

I’d say it’s even better on watch 2 (and 3 and 4 and 5 etc...). You catch a lot of connections that you may have missed the first time through. The example I always use is that Randy is Cheese’s son (method man).

Probably my favorite scene of all time:

Unless you're from Baltimore and/or fluent in the lingo, captions are a must for this show.

such an incredible casting job.  The Wire was the first thing she ever did on film.  Now I know she was basically playing herself in the role but we have seen over the years that rarely works out well.

If you haven't seen GoT, you're in for a treat there too.

Put The Wire in your back pocket for a rewatch next year. Like bigmarc said, it's just as good - if not better - the second time around.

Game of Thrones is so much better than The Wire.  On a scale of 16 to 73, with 16 being the best and 73 being the worst I give The Wire a 67.  GOT is a 19

Up until last season, I could have at least entertained that argument. But the writing last season was The Walking Dead levels of bad.

Have to dive back in to that.

@Nathan R. Jessep if you're looking to stay with the Wire, watch this. The mini series that started it all.

Totally. On a scale from a Honda to a wallaby, Game of Thrones is like fighting a dozen five-year olds and The Wire is Marshall Falk's cancerous testicle.

This show was great, don't get me wrong. But it's not as re-watchable as The Sopranos and other shows.

I've had the box DVD set sitting here and I haven't touched them in years.

I think I am the only person in the world who watched this series and didn't love it to pieces.  Literally everyone I talked to raved about it, and I lost interest somewhere late in S1 and never returned to it. :shrug:

Worst character by far: Colicchio

most perplexing character: the woman who worked in Major Crimes listening and deciphering the calls.  She got a lot of screen time for someone whose name I'm still not sure of.  Kima says it in the episode that Cheryl kicks her out, but I can't even remember.

Bunny and Hampsterdam is what REALLY hooked me.  Keep going.

You aren't the only one.  I tried to keep watching based on this thread and I had to shut it down sometime in season 4.  It was a miracle I lasted that long.

I can't remember the name of a single character on the show. That is never a good sign.

You were a braver man than I.  No way I would have lasted 3+ seasons given how little I was enjoying the show.

I don't think I have never seen any one rank season 4 last.  What about that season did you not like?

Not enough white people.

No, I was actually just drunk and ####### around.  re-watching the series and got into season 5 and remembered again how annoying it is.

i continue to appreciate season 2 more each time, find 3 a little less enjoyable.  4 is still the best and just the most complete all the way around.

I have a buddy who has Snoop speak down to an art. It is tear-inducingly funny.

I forget how many seasons it took me to figure out she was a girl.
