Great series, gotta say after 4 seasons I was ready to call it the GOAT, but holy sh*t they jumped the Shark in Season 5....because of that, for me at least, it will be in my top 3, but not #1....enjoyed the heck out of it though...
terrible thing is...i stopped watching midway through season 5. Seasons 3 and 4 though are probably the greatest 2 seasons in tv history
Yeah season 5 was pure garbage
They didn't even try and just wanted it to be over i guess
IIRC the city of b more was not very fond of the show and fought them a lot towards the end
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
Its a great show, I remeber watching the first 5 episodes of season 1 and saying this show is ok, the plot is developed slowly and baaaaammm I was glued to the show by episode 10.
I'm not gonna lie, season five did suck. But it still had its moments. I still watch episodes from that season. I mean, Bunny went full retard with Hamsterdam but nobody crucified him.
Rank em, Bullis.
For me: 4 > 2 > 3 > 1 > 5
Season 4 was golden and season 2 is very underrated
Surprises me when I see S2 get no love. Great TV.
The kids and how they show the process of the players being made is what made S4 good. That and Marlo's come up.
S3 was the beef between Avon and String. And my boy, Bodie, getting love.
What is the plot of the show? So many people watch it and talk about it that I'm considering starting it myself. My GOAT show is Breaking Bad, it would take a miracle to beat that awesomeness LOL.
Winningest Program in College Football since 1990!
Season 2 is my favorite one
Season 5 does have some moments
Like when McNulty freaks on the lying reporter
Mike killing Snoop then turning into new Omar at the end
Omar getting worked by Kenard lol
And the shootout at Monks apartment
The wire is better than breaking bad
It starts out as gangsters vs cops in bmore
But is mostly about life on the streets then turns into involving politicians and media and how all the drug money seems to travel all over a city infrastructure

I may be crazy, but I loved Season 2 about the waterfront, Greeks, and Union...for me it goes
2, 1, 4, 3, 5
Bodie slowly became arguably my favorite character in the show who was not a main star...loved that kid....loved the slow simmer conflict between String and Avon....that scene on the rooftop where you knew what was coming, they hugged and said "Us" before the inevitable was so powerful
And Marlo walking in and telling everybody the price of the brick going up and there ain't no more meetings.
Tall man Slim Charles shooting Cheese in his sh_t.
A bunch more.
2 is my fav
Also dundee, Clay getting off and making another comeback was funny
It's the characters for me, man. Some great character.
Chris and Snoop
The two Greeks who weren't Greek
All of them. Even the ones I hated were great. Like Herc, Ziggy, Rawls and String
Yeah its all about the characters
This is why i know you would like Treme
The shows are very similar, the wire is better but its close
Is that Showtime? It's on Netflix?
What I truly love about season 4 is that it shows how the kids lose their innocents and become adults at an early age. The one guy’s mom is an addict and he has to support his little brother.
Season 2 is great because it shows a community on the ropes on economic collapse and how they are fighting to keep their jobs.
HBO dawg, literally the same people who made the wire made treme
Minus Ed Burns
Sweet! I got HBOGO. I'm gonna check it out.
Mike was also molested, and that plays a huge role in his development
I think it’s on HBO, I have been meaning watching it since it’s from the same creator. I know it’s set in New Orleans
Do it, its slow paced but just remember its all about characters
Once you figure them out you start to love them, or love hate them
Bunk and Lester's new characters are effin awesome
Five was definitely a little strange and hard to believe at times, but I think it was necessary to show a few different things. The goal of the show was to show the interactions of different groups in the city essentially. I think they wanted to show that with the decline of the local papers that the checks and balances of the system get diluted and it becomes easier to do things that seem crazy like McNulty did in season 5.
For pure entertainment I agree that 5 doesnt live up to the other seasons, but if you look at it as a part of the whole and what the real goal of the show was, I think it's an important piece of the whole.
For me the show is #1 and it's not even close. I've probably watched the whole series between 3-5 times and named my dog after Bubbles.
Sopranos >> The Wire
