I have watched 5 episodes of The Wire

Not hooked yet. When does it get good? Should I keep watching?

I've had the same problem. Everyone says keep watching, but this is the reason I still haven't seen The Wire.

They had me hooked at Snot Boogie.

After 3 episodes I honestly thought I was watching the wrong show. Why does it get so much love?

It's like Lou Tepper's defense.

I'm almost on the exact same episode as you and I feel the exact same. I like it but don't really love it yet either. I'm going to keep watching because I felt the same way about mad men at first and now I love the show

re: I have watched 5 episodes of The Wire
it is a slow build

the show is about the characters

don't go in expecting a lot to happen all the time

Remember the name of the show is called "The Wire". Think about all of the things relating to this...the politics, the targets, the strategy in setting everything up, the surveillance team and different personalities being put together, the location this is all happening at. How can you not be intrigued on how everything unfolds and develops.

You dont judge The Wire.

The Wire judges you.

The last 10 minutes of the episode where all they said was F*ck. I was like WTF?!?

Seemed kinda stupid and childish. I find it interesting but not making me think "when can I watch the next one."

My wife gave up after 3 episodes as well and she usually has great taste. I was hooked from the beginning and in my mind it is the greatest television show of all-time.
