I've always put off watching this show, it always seemed to be just... not like it would be any good. However, after watching the first episode, I really liked it. I started the show because I heard about "Snoop," the assassin/hitman character introduced in season 3.

Watching this for the first time. Has great reviews and has been recommended numerous times but always put it off. This has a quality feel to it. First episode is interesting and I look forward to the rest of the season.

One of the best crime/drama shows ever made. Up there whit, The Sopranos,Boardwalk Empire and Breaking Bad in that order.And Hey Who Can't love Bubbles? I've seen him in a few other roles but every time i see him i just think of Bub's and The Wire :) PS. if this is the only episode you have watched and you don't think you'll like it,or it's a bit slow, just stick whit it and KEEP ON WATCHING...

Lets give this one a try then, hopefully it lives up to it's reputation :)

I was not too sure about this at the start of the episode, with the over use of swear words and every character seeming to be a tough guy type it was kinda off putting but as it went on it only got better and I will continue to watch on and see how it goes.
