The Wire

Post by S7eele » Sat Oct 20, 2012 2:35 am

I just started watching this series, about five episodes in. The first two episodes were very slow but at episode three it started getting good, for me. Looking for your opinions, thanks in advance.

Peace!

I've tried it and stopped watching because of the slow pace. I keep hearing that it's really good though so maybe I will try again a third time. I think I only saw the first 2 episodes.

The first two were terribly slow, didn't start getting good til about episode five. By eight I can't wait to watch more. Think its one that just had so much info to hit you with so quick the first few episodes are less entertaining and more educational, if that makes any sense. Not sure where it will go but I would definitely recommend you giving it a couple more episodes.

Some of my favourite shows ever have started slow, so I will definitely give it a go

Yeah, I can't recommend that you do strongly enough. I am only on episode eight and if it isn't the best episode yet, it definitely has a lot of the best scenes so far. Omar really comes out. I now understand why Adult Swim ran the bumps about Voting for the best bad guy out of Walter White and Omar. For sure give it to number eight.

Okay, I am struggling with this one now. It took half the first season to get good and then everything falls apart. They spend half the second season building the plot back up, guess I'll see what the end of the second season is like and go from there. May not be finishing this and withdrawing my original comment.

Alright, end of season 2 was good but still not seeing what the folks that scream it is the best thing ever on television see. Season 3 has started well so its a solid show. I'll finish it as I have the time. Later.
Peace!

Big thumbs down for the overall project IMO. Definitely strong parts of each season but I don't get all the hype.
Peace!
