These are the dumbest threads. Why do you need to ask other people when it will grab YOUR attention? Who the frick knows besides you? Just watch it. If you don't like it, you don't like it. If you do, you do.

There is a shot in Ep1 of Bunk and McNulty walking down a street in the projects, with some trash around, the run down buildings etc. It is a totally realistic perspective as if you are standing across the street seeing them. Absolutely no souped up phony hollywood bull shite. I thought, well, I have neer seen anything on TV like this. I was fascinated from the first few minutes.
It looks like the real world because it is.
That is the beauty of the whole show (S5 excepted).
