    Apologies if there is already a thread. Couldn't find it if there is. Suggested this to my brother ages ago. He gave it up for a variety of reasons. I've nipped at him and he's giving it a go again. He's loving it. Sending me texts about different scenes. I'm going to give it a rewatch. Loved season 2. The whole docks storyline and union angle. What a show. Right up there with the vety best, if not THE BEST.

    Never seen this,always wanted to watch it,might give it a go.

    i remeber watching family guy and they took the * out of this (in a good way) about The Wire and Breaking Bad being the 2 best Tv Shows ever made.

    It’s fantastic. Season 4 is one the best seasons of TV you’ll ever watch.

    Best show of all time with the Sopranos

    Breaking bad just a tier below but still amazing

    Rest don't compare

    Breaking bad is nowhere near The Sopranos or The Wire.

    Is this quite a slow starter? I watched the first couple of episodes a while ago after hearing a lot of positive reviews but couldn’t get into it.

    I probably didn’t give it enough time.

    Great show. Some outstanding characters in it- Omar, Jay Lansman, Rawls, Bunk, Stringer Bell to name a few.
    Always found McNulty and Daniels really annoying for some reason.

    I quite liked Daniels. The guy who started doing his boxing was good. Can't remember his name. The scene when he was asking Avon for the money to start up. He's all nervous, asking for ten grand, eventually Avon and Slim? burst out laughing. Gave him 15 grand.

    Yeah it's a slow burner, but its top, top tier television. As someone else said, season 4 might be the best of any show ever.

    Top class show. Number one for me with the Sopranos a close second. Anybody that ave heard saying they didn't like it have only lasted a couple of episodes. Stick in you will love it by the end.

    One of the best,struggled to find any new tv series to even come close to as good as it since.

    I preferred The Shield myself. But it is an excellent show.

    I felt once it lost a couple of characters it went slightly downhill for me.

    Binging it now. Criminal I’ve taken so long to watch it. I’m at the end of Season 1 and it’s getting really good. Started very slow I thought.

    This is why most people give up on it. AS i said before it gets there & is a quality show

    Think i will be working from home from Wednesday & be able to watch some TV at the same time so will give this another watch.
