The Wire
« on: July 28, 2017, 12:15:40 PM »
This just showed up on Amazon and I started to watch.  I noticed there are 6 seasons.  Does the show hold up well thru this many season?  Also, I think I have heard the 'F' word and 'N' word more in this show than any other and I am just 6 episodes into the first season.

There are 5 seasons and only 60 episodes total - it's not like some shows where there are 20-odd episodes per season.

It's my favourite TV show ever, with so many incredible characters. The final season isn't quite as good as the previous 4 I'd say, but it's still great.

Oh man, you're in for a treat. GOAT show for me, and season four in particular is a masterpiece that just gives me all the feels.

I am on an island with this show.  I tried like hell to like it, but I just couldn't get into it.

This, for sure.  It is on a short, short list of best shows ever.

For some reason, a large percentage of that short list aired on HBO.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

You were correct about Dem Kidz.  Season 4 was great.  Finished up the series last night and top 5 series for me.

If anyone has Amazon prime, they are starting to add some good series.  Deadwood, Six feet under and Carnivale to name a few.

I wasn't a big fan of the show in general, but I hated season 4, to be honest. Glad to see some people like it!

I would say 2 > 3 > 1 > 5 > 4.

From what I've read, 4 seems to regarded as the best season by quite a lot of people. It wasn't my favourite though - I always liked 1 and 3 more. 2 & 4 would be my 'second tier' and 5 is my least favourite, but still great.
