    i've watched every episode of the sopranos at least 5 times. i need a new show to watch. i've seen episodes of the wire and wasn't that into it, but i think if i start from the begining ill appreciate it more. what you guys think?

    I heard it sucked. That, The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad.

    All a waste of time.

    The Wire and Breaking Bad should not be mentioned together....TWO totally different shows 

    Realistic life of inner American cities vs Fantasy Drug Dealing in New Mexico

    I started The Wire recently. The first season was lit but this second season got me snoozing.

    2nd season of the Wire was the worst but still not terrible. After season 2, its all up hill. Great show.

    I didn't appreciate season 2 until I finished the series....in the moment it was meh (because I couldn't stand ziggy) but in retrospect it was very key

    speaking of which it's about that time I rewatch the series [​IMG]

    The Wire is the GOAT. Season 2 is a different direction but vastly important to to the rest of the story. Don't listen to the hate.
