Sorry for my opinion? It didn't keep me on my seat like breaking bad did. Not even close.

Friday the 13th kept me on the edge of my seat too, but it's not better than The Wire.

you get crucified on here if you have a differing opinion of the masses. wade is the one being a bitch not me. nothing stood out to me. I'll use BB as an example then because i brought it up. No one character commanded the screen like Walter White did. There was no villain close to the cold cunningness of Gus, no secondary character you gravitated to like Mike. the only character i saw make a 180 in the show like Jesse was sergeant Jay Landsman. was a fat useless cop who turned out to be the best cop the department had. i used mediocre because wade was being a bitch. it's not great to me but i can see the show being above average.

You just basically summed up my feelings on BB with your feelings on Luther

Lol

How the hell can you call Jay Landsman a good cop? Literally all he did was eat, take orders, and look at porn.

I agree, but can never come up with a situation I would be satisfied with.

I didn't have too much of a problem of how Omar went, I was upset he didn't get revenge on Marlo.

Same here. I hated how he hid behind Chris and Snoop. I had no doubt Omar was going to handle that situation.

The Greek killed people and cut of their fingerprints and faces, Omar was killing people and leaving them in empty houses, Hell Avon's gang offed a 16 yr old and left bodies on the street mangled just to send a message.

LOL, Omar, Bunny Colvin, Greggs, Carcetti, Bubbles

He never really did, but how about Namond Brice? Lt. Daniels? Cutty is like the definition of a character who makes a 180, hell Bodie makes a 180 and goes back like 3 times, how about Bubbles?

Lol at anyone trying to claim that breaking bad has better characters(and character development) than the wire.
