Everyone used to talk about "The Wire" and what a great show it was. Growing up without HBO, I never got to sit down and watch it. However, I got in the first episode wondering how it was going to go. By the 2nd one, boom! This show takes off with the superb writing and a cast that is perfect for this drama. If you want to watch a show that doesn't cut corners and shows the realism of drug use and police work, tune in. 10/10

The Wire is by far the best show I've ever seen, because it doesn't fool around or take sides. It's very real, very raw and unforgiving. It shows you an unbiased view of all the players, including the criminals and their families, the politicians, the law enforcement and even everyday working people, to an extent I've never seen since or otherwise. The one thing that sets this HBO original apart from the others is it's realism. It captures Baltimore's along with various other cities plight with crime and the lack of support from judicial entities so accurately it's almost a documentary. 10/10

I must say, this show is so compelling and unique, It's kinda hard to look at it as entertainment. Everything in the show or most of everything we have all seen at one point in our lives,the realism is just so astonishing. With that said, My favorite character is Omar little, he held his own without going over board and he never wanted to much. I guess the word I'm looking for is materialism. There is another show the ran around the same time as this, The shield is what its called and I'm trying to think how these two shows were ever compared. I mean the shield is about corrupt cops. Still a good show though as well as this 5/5

If you haven't watched it, you need to. Stunning writing, great characters. 9/10 easily. A few weak points a long the way, but for so many episodes they can be over looked. Loved it.

This would be the best TV show ever created if it wasn't for breaking bad. Simply an amazing work of art.

This show really makes me wonder sometimes about the intelligence of the individual cogs comprising the political and bureaucratic machines. Perhaps the most astute individual in the entire series is Detective Freamon, who has been portrayed as the most logical and insightful character of the entire cast. Those many characters ensconced in their position within overarching bureaucratic system appear incapable of looking past their duties, even when covering up their own transgressions. Applying an 'if I can't see you then you can't see me' mentality that defies all logic. And yet, it appears to persist. In this one aspect, this show most certainly gratifies the drug dealers, in that at the very least they employ the use of fluid thinking and reasoning. However accurately or inaccurately this may be when reflected upon reality, the political and bureaucratic entities most certainly are cause for concern within this construct. That said, this was a great first season, I had not previously seen the series before, and have found it to be very entertaining.

Good series...Was not until the second season that I started to enjoy it more, but glad I kept watching. I especially enjoyed season 4 which focused more on the corner kids. The Omar character was hilarious as he could have had his own spin off series which I would have gladly watched. Wish it had ended differently, but was realistic.

Like many other reviewers have stated, this show took a little time to reel me in and I sort of struggled through the first season a bit wondering what all the fuss was about, but now I'm about to start the 3rd season and I'm completely hooked. It is a very realistic, well written and well acted show. Can't wait to see what comes next with each episode. Omar is without a doubt my favorite character so far. I'd love to see the actor who plays him in a Tarantino movie someday; he's an utter badass.

Classic 10/10 if you've never seen this show, you're missing out... It's a real classic! Only a Few will touch the Quality and Grit of the Wire... Only Shows which kinda touch it so far are Boss & Breaking Bad... Mixture and you have GREATNESS! Stringer Bell was Smart but too Greedy, Some times you gotta Stop while your ahead!

Hands down the greatest show ever created. The plot points, story arcs, and gripping realism make this the most dynamic, original, and compelling drama to ever hit the TV. Although... I dont believe this show got the credit it deserved when it was airing. Mainly due to the popularity of other shows that were airing around the same time. With Baltimore set as the urban wasteland where the series takes place, and David Simons' choice to use local talent as a bulk of the secondary characters, the show immediately struck me as something truly remarkable. A fun fact: Harvard actually offers a course based around the series writing style and cross plots. Not enough can be said about "The Wire". It also has great rewatchability. 5/5!!
