Best series HBO ever did to me was OZ. Before they f#@ked it up with the over the top story lines. Sometimes it was like you were watching a documentary. And 'Besi was the rawest character on television bar none. A one man wrecking crew. When he got killed off I went into shock.
Wire =Great television. Watch it on OnDemand all the time. Every time somebody stops through I get em hooked on it. HBO oughta be sending me certificates for all the service I've sent their way behind this series.
