I have just finished watching the first series of this. Better late to the party than never. I have a theory that the continual mention and depiction of heroin in a TV series could make it physically addictive.
My question is, does anybody NOT like the Wire? I've seen such universal praise for it it's almost sinister. I mean I've actually tried googling phrases like "The Wire is not very good" "The Wire is shit" and "The Wire is a bit average really". Seriously - nothing! Try it!
