I started watching The Wire, considering how good the ratings are

@selurus @angristan yup. Never finished last season though.
PS: slow paced, takes a bit to get used to. Let me know if you aren’t amazed by the bureacracy and secretary-moving completely non CSI style.

@angristan A lot of people think The Sopranos is better, but The Wire barely counts as fiction and a lot of the supporting actors are the real deal just having a go at acting for a change.


One of the main cops, and one of the main drug dealers, the actors are British. If you don't already know which ones, don't look it up. It's more fun trying to pick 'em out in the show. Fantastic American accents for both of them. No trace of British accent ... and then you see them in an interview, speaking naturally, it's cool.
