    The Wire

    So all of you people stateside have gotten a full series out of this show, but over here it's only just been picked up by the BBC. Still, we're getting through it pretty fast, since BBC2 has been airing an episode every weeknight since last Monday.

    I've heard nothing but rave reviews of it, so I really couldn't find it in myself to avoid it. I'm definitely interested, even early on, where most shows build slowly, it's been really good. I'm very much not a fan of cop shows, so I'm actually very impressed.

    So who here has seen it? What did you think of it?

    I'm biased (as I'm from Baltimore), but I think it's easily one of the greatest series of all time, and I'm glad to see it expand beyond HBO.

    I'm actually hesitant to call it just a "cop show", as it is so much more than that. Also, while technically it's a fictional storyline, it's much closer to fact than fiction...maybe near-fiction is the better term.

    ditto about being around baltimore

    but have been told by people out of state that it is still a good show and most of the 4 seasons are worth a watch

    comcast on demand has posted the entire first season of this series and i've gone through three episodes so far.

    this is a great show so far with a good engaging pace. the writers, so far, have done a great job relating individual plotlines into the overall weave of the show
