After hearing from so many people that The Wire was the best television show ever, I finally decided to give it a try. Actually, I did watch the pilot a few years ago, but it didn’t grab me then. Now, however, it’s been explained that The Wire follows the “slow burn” storytelling method and I should give it at least half a season before making up my mind. So I did, and I ended up really enjoying all of Season 1.
I’m now well into Season 2, and though I think this is a quality show, I can’t say I’m in the “best ever” camp (yet). Still, this is one I look forward to watching because the ensemble cast is awesome and the season-long plots are quite good!
