Re: The Wire
The three best dramas I've ever seen are the Wire, Breaking Bad, and Deadwood, the Wire has a good case for best of all time. The show had so many awesome characters whether it was Omar, Stringer, Avon, Prop Joe, Carver, or Bodie. You haven't even gotten to Marlo yet ( I won't give anything away) but he is yet another fantastic character. Realism plus great writing, plot, and awesome character development.
