Best show in the history of Television. Hands down. (or at least from everything I’ve ever seen… which is a lot) I cannot recommend to you enough that you rent/buy/watch the first season. Don’t come in during the middle of it or god forbid the series finale which airs on Sunday. It’s the most enriching experience I’ve ever had as a viewer in my life. Please. Please watch the first season of the wire and give it 4 episodes. I promise you won’t be sorry. Thank you.
