can you use the code for more than one thing if you buy everything at once? I'm not sure whether to get the wire, mad men (£24 for season 1-3) or neither. How is this show for someone that's never watched this sort of genre...I normally watch things like chuck, fringe, arrested dev, breaking bad etc...thanks in advance.

take it for a big fan of chuck and arrested development, the wire and mad men are tough to watch really. i have only watched 1 episode of the wire and 2 of mad men, but found them slow and boring.

also this code thing is going to get out of hand. its a great code, and they had a 15% one ages ago for new customers and we got so many threads it was insane.

its a once use code per account, but if like me you setup 10 accounts for the last 15% offer then its never going to be a problem in making many order lol. but i wouldnt waste it on this.

seriously what planet are you on - the wire - really one of the best series EVER MADE. I have just finished series 5 and not sure what tv is ever going to beat it.

Excellent! dont forget quidco too... not tracking yet but worth a shot.

Original Poster

decided to buy it I'll force myself past the first episode if i have to now I've spent £38 lol

if i hadnt already watched the whole series twice id buy this. best show ever. hands down.

best show ever made.

best price ever too.

no doubt!

Never watched this, but if its as good as other HBO shows, it will be great.
Just Ordered

Awesome - kept missing this whenever it's been £40 previously...

Not this time though - ordered, thanks

Is there any hope of a bluray release? Otherwise might as well grab these, absolutely love the TV show, been re-watching it and got the missus hooked too!

I'm five episodes in and it'll need a lot of improvement to live up to the hype. I watched Treme and found the first episode a bit slow but I was hooked by the third one, this just aint grabbing me as I dont care for any of the characters. Hoping it improves though.

Apparently it wasn't filmed in high definition, and the aspect ratio is 4:3...so v much doubt it

yep, definitely best TV show ever.

Does anyone know if there are sub-titles in this box set ?
Thanks

It was shot on film I thought so could be in HD one day if re-edited?

Awesome show that I am thinking of rewatching full through a third time soon.

You might be right then, I dunno. I just had a quick look on a forum.

Ordered. Thanks for the heads-up.

Thank you very much for bringing this code to my attention. As I already have The Wire box set, and let me tell you...

IT *IS* THE GREATEST TV SERIES EVER MADE

...I've decided to use it on a pre-order of the Apocalypse Now Blu-ray. RRP £18, getting it now for a little over £15. And I dare say nobody can beat that. So thank you very much again.

The Wire is a show I want to hate and at times, I've really wanted to give up on it but it is definitely good in it's own way and has always kept me crawling back for more. However, I do think people overhype it and it's not as good as people make out. It's very good but not 'best tv show ever' good in my opinion. Definitely worth a watch though. Some great characters!

Quidco tracked for me on this as well

Not much beats it. But if you like Breaking Bad you should like this. The issues with the Wire are that it moves slowly a first and you need to train your ear for the accent / slang.

Stick with it - the addiction is coming...

Agreed - you're almost there - then you're hooked! I struggled for a while, the language hard to follow, the characters difficult to like, then BAM - it gets you.

I'm still working my way through the seasons, trying to pace myself, because once I've finished I know I'll be gutted....

Deal! Great price and series.
On series 4 which I have borrowed of mate

Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeiiiiiiiitttttttt - Omar's coming!

I love series four for the way people say that one word.....

Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeiiiiiiiiitttttt

Just finished season 3. It's great, but I prefer Homicide - Life on the Street.

Great series (second only to The West Wing in my book) at a great price.

Another star spot!
