Has anyone else here watched The Wire? I finished it about a month and a half ago but I'm still thinking about it constantly; it's characters, setting, ideas, storylines are always in my head. Sometimes I'll spend hours just watching clips of it and browsing the shows subreddit. I know this all sounds like your typical wire fanboy spouting about the show and it is, I promised myself I wouldn't become like those people before I started but after watching it I can't help it; it's fucking incredible in every sense of the word. Season 4 is probably the best TV series I've ever seen with it's final episode 'Final Grades' being unquestionably my favourite episode of any television show.

So anyone else like the show?

That's good to hear, I was still pretty iffy on the show by episode 5.

By the way, this scene is hilarious (no spoilers):

I think I was up to about episode 5 and still wasn't into it. It's good to know that it really does get better.

It's terrible at the beginning. I didn't care for it at the start at all.

I know what you mean exactly It does have one advantage in that when you rewatch it, you're right in the middle from the first episode but ye, overall it's terrible for people starting.

My favourite season is 2, closely followed by 3 and 4. It IS very slow at the start but its so so so worth it in the end.

I feel like that's the season that becomes a whole lot better the second time round, the first time I watched it I liked it but missed the focus on the inner city from the first season. I'm thinking of rewatching it all soon, maybe sometime in October.
