    Default The Wire

    Over the last couple of months I've turned into a Wirehead. IMO The Wire is the best TV show ever made. Couple of mates had always recommended it to me. But I always dismissed it as hiphop culture bollix. When I finally decided to give it a chance I was pleasantly surprised and eventually was hooked. Brilliant characters, actors and script.

    Any other Wireheads on here?

    Brilliant show indeed. I agree with everything you said. Im guessing from teh lack of responses that ppl arent aware of The Wire's awesomeness. If that is indeed the case, then I urge all who havent seen it to watch it.

    Yep possibly the best show ever, either that or Sopranos. The real question is why it took you a whole couple of months to watch it all?!
    And you call yourself a Wirehead... sheeeeeeeeeeeeeet

    The Wire pwns Teh Sopranos imo. The last two series were bad and the less said about the final scene of The Sopranos the better.

    Default Omar's Coming Yo!

    Loved the Wire and by far my favourite character has to be Omar.

    you gotta like Tommy Carcetti too, just because Aidan Gillen was born in Dublin. Great to see an Irish actor involved in something so iconic.

    I spend quite abit of time in Baltimore where the Wire is based, and I must tell you the Wire doesn't lie one bit about how bad Baltimore is; the story-lines and characters are true reflections of what goes on, and some of the people who live in Baltimore; I didn't know what the word 'disfunction' meant until I came here. Baltimore's nickname is B-MORE-CAREFREE, and its an accurate name for it; the crime in Baltimore is so random and senseeless you start to wonder if something isn't in the water because how can people be so evil, weird and rude; spend sometime in Baltimore, and don't be supprised if you start to think that maybe it is the 'Devil's den
