    This was a good wee miniseries from the creators of The Wire and featuring a few of the actors from that series...this was out about 2 years before The Wire:

    I've mentioned before in this thread that the first couple of each season are a lot slower because you are trying to follow a bunch of new characters and trying to figure out where you think their storylines are going, as well as all the old ones that obviously build up as each season adds more.

    Season 5 is a bit of a slow burner, the McNulty storyline gets a bit far fetched imo

    Powered through seasons 1-3 quite quickly. Watched episode 1 of season 4 about a month ago and haven't watched since. Just got a bit sick of it tbh, but I'll pick it up again soon.

    It's been excellent so far.

    Finally finished it.

    One of the best TV series' I've seen. Season 4 is the pinnacle imo...it's just perfect.

    Struggling to choose between The Wire and The Sopranos, in terms of what I think is the better series. Probably the former.

    What did you think of the end? I loved it.

    There was one scene towards the very end of it where Lester tells Jimmy they’ve been caught in the interrogation room and the acting is incredible. Can’t find it on YouTube.

    Aye the final few episodes were fantastic. Think they wrapped it up very well. Didn't give every character a "happy ever after" ending...albeit I knew they would because that's not the type of show it is!

    Yeah I know the scene you're talking about. The biggest disappointment was just the way Omar went out. I love how it was so unspectacular and realistic...but I was gutted to see him go like that.

    Who was everyone's favourite character? There's that many to choose from. Bubbles and Omar are up there for me.

    I quite liked micheal,could have done well for himself outside of crime,wise beyond his years,didnt seem a bad kid.just too involved in the gangbanger lifestyle.* ruthless young guy an all,taking on the stanfields & omar.lucky omar didn't know who he was though,after that ambush in the gaff. when he walked up behind him with the gun.omar just thought he was a daft punk so didn't bother popping him.

    Best show I've watched in my young life so far. So many great characters. My personal favourite characters are Bodie, Stringer Bell, Frank Sobotka, Bubbles and Lester Freamon. Season 3 was my favorite season.

    Just watched the very first 3 episodes over the weekend. What a great season of TV it is.
