The Wire (TV series)

Post  Made in Finland on 12th January 2013, 1:53 am

Some of you might know this TV-series, after all it is a modern classic. But somehow I've managed to not even hear it exists until late last year. I just finished the 4th season, and it's so fucking good, I can't keep it to myself... I'm sure there are others who haven't heard of it yet. I can't explain how good it is any way better than this:

Everybody knows The Godfather, right? Supposed to be the best movie ever, and I'm not saying it isn't. But, The Godfather has a imdb score of 9.2. The Wire has 9.5. That's right, the general opinion is that it's better than fucking The Godfather. And I definately agree on that. Go fucking see this shit if you've never had, you'll be blown away.

Need a summary to get you interested? Allright, it's set in Baltimore and it's about the most extensive criminal drama ever made. It's mostly about cops trying to bust drug dealers (through a wiretap, hence the name), but it covers fucking everything in the game. All levels of the police hierarchy, all levels of the drug trafficking hierarchy, all levels of the politician hierarchy... cops, schoolkids, dope fiends, the drug source, kingpins, teachers, dock workers, the mayor, Robin Hood... it just fucking covers everything and ties it into a neat package of a story. Oh, and the Season 1 opening is godsend:

its an amazing show, and its kind of funny seeing how many new shows try to use similar techniques as this one did so many years before.

I mean fuck this is the godfather of cop dramas!

Fin, it's funny that you posted this because I very recently started watching it and went through the first 4 seasons very quickly too. Great show, I'm on season 5 episode 2

The only other person I know who has seen it is Slacker but he never got past season 2

Holy shit, that's the exact same episode I'm at too. Lol.

What's even more funny is that the show actually started airing from Season 1 just last week in Finland, when I was in the middle of Season 4. Not the first time it has aired, but funny coincidence.
