And I didn't love him so maybe thats why I'm not enjoying it. I don't hate him, be he didn't even become overly interesting until the last three episodes where he had a moral dilemma to face about which direction to choose. Other than that, he did very little but sit around lecturing young kids about the game.

Not exactly a controversial opinion, but The Wire is a better and more productive show than Breaking Bad.

edit: they are still both God Tier

It really isnt- thus far that is. BB accomplishes as much in one episode as the wire does in an entire season. A season which I didn't need to see the streets of Baltimore and the offices of the PD to such an extent to understand the concepts they were trying to convey. I'm sorry, its just boring.

Your 2nd sentence is a massive exaggeration. As far as season rankings go, I'd put it 3-4-1-5-2.

I will say I did find the first 2-3 episodes boring. I've even said as much. I stopped watching for a year, then only continued again after being hounded by people saying to give it a shot. After that I was hooked.

Of course its an exaggeration, but when you spend an hour of your life watching a show you should get more development with the story outside of "Avon decided to move around to use pay phones". THeres literally episodes where things as insignificant as that are the ONLY thing significant moving the plot forward. There were several times I pointed out that if I had skipped a few particular episodes I would be nowhere near missing out on anything or lost if I just watched the next episode. Thats completely inexcusable for a show many deem the best drama ever.

And people said that I would be hooked half way through S1, and after finishing I'm still wondering what Im missing. The last 3 episodes were very good. The others......meh.

Then again, I should note that that model seems to be a trend for HBO shows. GoT's last season had like two significant episodes.

Even though D was a great character I don't think he was a perfect example of what the wire was all about.


After I finished season 4 I think wee-bay and Colvin are what Simon was trying to say. Look at the meeting they had regarding Namond being a drug dealer. They both seemed to agree that they wasted their lives. Simon was trying to say the streets and the game just keep rolling no matter what. Having a high ranking officer and the best soldier in baltimore for a point pretty much agreed to that at the same time.

Bunny Colvin is an amazing character. The Amsterdam stuff in season three is some of the best scenes put on television. I just love seasons 3 and 4. The pacing of the show while at times very slow is completely necessary.

yeah really underrated but Colvin makes season 4 IMO. But then again every time I re watch the wire I have different theories and opinions on what character makes the series. There are so many story lines going on and it all comes together perfectly with Marlo standing their on the corner.

Im glad I don't have the wire up at school or I would never get any school work done. Im such a wire junkie I have season 6 mapped out in my head if Simon ever wanted to come out of retirement and make another season.

The show is very detail-oriented. There are very few wasted scenes in The Wire. It took me awhile to get into it because I don't particularly care for crime dramas, but I definitely say it's better than Breaking Bad. There are many reasons, but the key being that you don't have to suspend disbelief for The Wire to work.

It might just not be your thing.

My favorite scene...


And Bunk is the best...

I love justified so much. Although I'd like to see them develop where this season is going with Raylan a bit quicker (although I suppose we got a hint at that towards the end of the episode). Luckily Boyd's story is doing great. I honestly can't think of a better show on tv right now outside of maybe mad men (which I'm not caught up on so Im not sure how thats doing still) and I have yet to watch true detective on HBO.

Game of Thrones is definitely one of those shows that they could show me those characters doing anything and I'd watch. Combined that with some shocking episodes and the constant wonder of what can happen next and you've got quite a series. I've started reading the books out of boredom but I've only kept up with the show and I feel like that made me like it more.

I hate seeing something compared to Breaking Bad. It's just an impossible standard. Definitely my favorite tv series ever.

It wasn't terrible, but last season was overly insignificant in moving things forward (and especially hearing that some of the more significant events I hear don't even end up going anywhere). I think SP did a perfect job of parodying this show. When you hint at a huge zombie invasion in the first five minutes of the first episode, and then don't even truly come back ot it for three seasons, youre getting into Lost level territory.

Luckily GoT has several characters I love so i don't mind the snail pace half as much as in The Wire, but its a fair complaint.

Just started watching The Wire for the 5th time a couple of days ago. My all time favourite show. I feel the same way as the first highlighted part, but if I had to choose, for me Boadie and his story is the essence of the show imo.

Im glad I don't have the wire up at school or I would never get any school work done. Im such a wire junkie I have season 6 mapped out in my head if Simon ever wanted to come out of retirement and make another season.
I would love to hear what kind of storylines you have.
