The Wire is the greatest television show of all time in my humble opinion.

i've just started the wire and i am struggling. it is alright and i'm only up to episode 4 but i'm just not getting it yet? is this a bad sign? i want to like it but the pacing so far seems pretty slow and the characters haven't really been introduced that well.

there's a lot of smaller things happening. it's honestly one of those shows that you have to pay attention to because it will reveal itself slowly. there's so many lines that are either repeated in a different way later or end up being pivotal when you just never think much of it. is the script and acting at least keeping you interested? because it gets better...

they introduce a lot of characters at first but they really only glance over them and are only really hitting the tip of the iceberg. the pacing may be slow to you but if anything, it took me a bit of time to catch up on the lingo. once you see the greater scheme of things, the pacing will pick up real fast.

just a primer so far. lots of build up. most of the main characters are dynamic and grow or regress in one way or another.

if you're expecting an action packed, bang 'em up cop thriller...this ain't it. i guess that's a legit criticism you can have of the show. while it did have a few action scenes, they were few and far between. that's just not what this show is about.

so far all you've seen is bunk and mcnulty being 'beat cops' at the moment but you also have gotten a peak at barksdale and his crew. you've seen some of the street level re-up stuff and the surveillance. oh and you were just introduced to the one omar little. trust me when i say this...he will not be forgotten. the rest of the cast gets fleshed out as time goes on.

so ya, keep watching. i don't think i became semi-hooked until the end of season 1. by season 2, i was saying 'damn, this is a really good show'. season 2 is pretty underrated btw. by season 3, i said, 'well, this is probably going to end up being one of my favorite series' ever'. then season 4 came around, tied that shit up real nice and solidified that thought. the low points in this series still ended up being really good imo.

I've seen many people say that they didn't really become invested in the story many episodes into the first season, but I never got that. The quality of the first couple of episodes isn't lower than the rest of the show, and there is already a lot of significant stuff going on.

It's like a novel in that respect. Of course you go further down the rabbit hole as you go along, but a quarter into the story you'll know whether you like it or not.

i was getting into it by the end of season 1, but season 2 has taken a massive step back. i'm up to ep 9 now and it is finally starting to move along, the problem i had with it is that they broke everything up and spent the first 5 or 6 episodes putting everyone back together again (it makes sense logically but it was just tedious at times). but i honestly don't care about these dockyard workers. lamest criminal organization ever lol. but i'm pushing on, i keep hearing good things about season 3 and 4.
