    Okay they have finished the current series of The Wire in the UK (think it's seires 4 or something) where
    Stringer Bell was shot dead and they managed to get Avon Barksdale.
    Was wondering is that the last series?

    bumpy bump. i started watching this series a few months ago and its one of the best series i have seen.

    the level of realism is astounding in it. no holding back whatsoever. there are parts that are desturbing like a gangster robin hood type of guy french kissing his boyfriend and then small kids who look like 5 swearing and shit.

    really hard on you type series with interesting plots and twists. im currently watching season 5 and it is a breath of fresh air for tv shows

    I'm also watching season 5 (unfortunately the last one).

    The soundtrack is available on I-Tunes...very good too...

    Yeah the soundtrack is alright.

    They're going to be showing the show on BBC2 soon.

    I bet you it's going to be aired at 12am or something lol. I don't think it'll be to popular here in England.

    Seen every series - one, if not the best series' ever made.

    People dont like series 2 as its quite different to the rest, but I put it right up there!

    I think the fourth series is the best (but i'm still watching the fifth).

    My favourite character is Bubbs (Bubbles) i like him a lot...at the beginning of the fifth series, he's clean (that where i am now), but since the Wire rarely has happy endings, i'm pretty things will end in tears for him (please don't react, i don't want to know how it ends...).

    See what I mean! :LOL:

    I really liked it anyway after getting over the shock of how different it was from the 1st series. First few episodes were spent like "WTF? Who is that? Who are they?" etc, but all said and done, it stands up alongside the other series' IMO.

    Ah man, you gotta finish it - if not season 2, then start again on 3 as that returns to more about the drugs and corners etc...

    Nah, I'll start watching it again and go through the motions I think.

    Should be getting my new 320GB external drive today so I'll be able to keep my TV shows in one place rather than back them up all over the place and lose track/have to delete to make space.

    Not sure linking to pictures of that nature is allowed (in-fact I'm sure it isn't), you'll have to PM everyone sad enough to want to look at them. ;)

    That guy's name is really Chris Bauer? I'm going to have to order another name-change then...

    BBC2 are showing the entire thing starting tonight.

    I watched the first couple of episodes of Season 1 around a year ago and couldn't get into it cause of the dialogue. It left me completely alienated.

    I'm Sky+ing it tonight though. Wanna give it another chance, seeing as everyone I've spoke too who has seen it hails it as the best thing on TV ever.

    It was good and worth watching but nowhere near the best TV show ever, not even close.

    The fact they are showing it every night kind of puts me off, why not just show a couple a week?!

    I wouldn't let that put you off, CW. It's certainly a good show and a lot of the hype is justified. It's not Lost/Heroes/Prison Break though but for what it is, it's well worth watching.
