    I hate how HBO runs a show 5years then pulls the plug, besides the second season the show was pure Brilliant.

    I'm sure its a great show.. however moving to Baltimore 2 years ago is enough for me and i dont want to get freaked out more than I already am about the crime in the city... that's the only deterrent from me watching this series. icon_biggrin.gif

    HBO shows for the most part are great!

    Did anyone hear of the show that the writers made about New Orleans and the aftermath of the hurricane? Its not being shown in the UK and I wondered if its worth a naughty download...

    HBO didn't pull the plug on The Wire. The creators of the show had a five year arc in mind when writing the show. I think that's what made it such a great series.

    I have watched bits and pieces of different episodes on YouTube and the show really exposes the true reality of gang and crime infested, decayed Baltimore. Another good series to watch is Homocide which is a crime drama set in Baltimore which is the Caracas of the North!

    I was maybe 12 or 13, and saw like nanoseconds of it late on a school night (because I hated school and would always stay up watching TV). I just didn't care for it then. So I possibly and most likely won't care for it now.
