to the OP, how many times have you heard the words above?

if you dont like it, you dont like it. But im not sure what you expect when you ask people if you should keep watching?

i watched it in 6 days. Like most series, the beginning is slow, and it usually picks up at the end of the season.

I really got into it about midway through season 1. If you don't like it by 8 or so...maybe it isn't for you.

I just started season 3. It's certainly a good show but can't hold a candle to the Shield.

It took me a while to get into it as well. Then I was hooked for a few seasons. I've slowed down with the new shows being on in the Fall and am near the start of season 4.

Shield fan here, but you are absolutely incorrect. The Shield has better acting but there is too much deus ex machina throughout the early seasons. It was more "TV" than The Wire.

I got about 4-5 episodes into season 2 and I dont find it to be that good. typical cliche cop show.

Well maybe that's because it was on "TV," whereas the Wire had the benefit of being on HBO.

Edit: I'm glad they went back to the streets in season 3 though, the dock stuff in 2 was lame.

that season takes a lot of flack but it was during that season where the best police work was done in my opinion.

I was very unbderwhelmed most of season 1. It finished strong and I give it a solid thumbs up. But I still havent started season 2 and its been over a year now. I was actually thinking about starting it this weekend though.

Not sure if you're aware but McNulty and Stringer are British and a fair amount of the actors on the show are real life gang bangers and criminals. I didn't know this until after I had watched the series and it definitely made me appreciate the performances that much more.

Felicia Pearson
In the wee hours of Thursday, March 10, 2011, Felicia "Snoop" Pearson was one of over 60 people swept up in a Baltimore drug raid straight out of The Wire. Baltimore police, the DEA and other agencies joined forced to carry out the massive sting in an attempt to take down a large heroin and marijuana operation. The former Wire actress was taken into custody.

Pearson, 30, has had a troubled past; at 14 she was convicted of 2nd degree murder and spent six years in prison, where she earned her GED. In August 2008, she was arrested for drug possession. Police arrived at Pearson's house on a warrant to pick her up for refusing to cooperate as a witness in the murder trial of Steven Lashley, who authorities say Pearson witnessed stabbing another man. Upon entering her house, officers discovered what they suspected was marijuana. Pearson, who played a cold-blooded killer by the same name on The Wire, was charged with one count of drug possession.





quote:

Melvin Williams
Melvin Williams, who played the deacon on The Wire was once a powerful Baltimore drug kingpin. Known as "Little Melvin" in certain circles, Williams was sent to federal prison in the 1980's for orchestrating a large-scale drug trade enterprise in Baltimore. Towards the end of his sentence, Williams found a new lease on life through religion. After his release, Williams was sent back to prison in 2000 for a gun conviction, but was released in 2003. He is currently on parole and cannot go further than 40 miles from Baltimore without special permission.
