Thats this series for sure .
Its a slow start its not an instant high ,but once youve watched the 1st 2 episodes your hooked and you just want the next episode right here, right now.
This for me ,anway, is the best Police /gang call it what you want series to ever hit t.v
Which of the bad guys is good and which of the good guys is bad you just gotta keep watching to find out .
Save yourself the hastle and buy all 5 series in one go if you can afford it because you wont want to sit around and wait even 3 days for it to be delivered.
The writers new series generation kill just started last night on the fx channel

Yeah, the third one is tonight.

I'm starting to get hooked. At the end of last nights ep I wanted MORE.

Im just getting into this. Bit disappointed that BBC2 are not showing it in widescreen. I have series linked the ones showing on FX though which are widescreen so once caught up going to watch those instead.

Best TV Show ever. Don't expect the glossy (but entirely hollow) CSI rubbish.
The Wire has more depth in one episode than a whole series of anything else.

HOT!

Yeah I thought that. I noticed my TV changes modes and thought "how old is this series?"
Anyway the series seems good so far with some dimension to the characters.

A bit of a shame it is on every night as it is a bit of a commitment but I suppose freeview recorders are a blessing here.

Voted cold, only £9.99 on BangCD.

Bang CD The Wire Seasons 1,2,3 = 9.99 S4 =12.99
I got mine about 3/4 weeks ago they arrived in five days.
Heres a link

It was filmed in 4:3, and the DVDs are in 4:3. They're not showing it on BBC2 in widescreen because it shouldn't be shown or watched in widescreen if you want the intended viewing experience. It would either be unnaturally stretched or you'd miss part of the picture due to zooming.

I've been through this part of Baltimore and it is a $hithole!

Just started watching it on BBC2...series linked on Sky+ as I doubt I'll get to watch it everynight. Looks quite a good programme. I'm hoping though that Dominic West's American accent gets better as the series goes on, as it does drop at times, and then he sounds 100% English!
