Is anybody else into this show? Personally, I think it's the best show on TV. This season isn't as good as the first two, and it might start its HBO slide in quality now, but it's still gripping.

It's a ridiculously good show. I found season three to be the best of the season by a narrow margin.

Pardon the double post, but GordFag is trying to run the board.

What does anyone else who watched this show think about the season? I have a feeling all of the kids are going to get killed. Great show. Real and well written.

Can I preach it like I feel it?

The fact its not shot in HD kind of pisses me off-- but I'm enjoying, although for some reason this season just feels like there is a little too much going on relative to other seasons.

I know I'm late to the party , but we just got finished watching the first season last night. And in my mind i think I just saw the best 12- 13 hours of the television I've ever seen.Sounds like hyperbole , but just watch the scene where D explain how chess works to his boys or McNulty and Bunk going back to the crime scene and tell me it's not one of the best shows you've seen.Even without taking into consideration all the race/class issues it deals with ,just the writing, acting and perfect casting put this over every other show on tv.And from everything I've read it just gets better in the seasons following this . I'll just stop the Simmonsesqe gushing .....just go get the dvd's already.

Good post. The crime scene scene is just too good.

Are you kidding?

The 4th season was a tour de force.

This show is redirkulous. I can't believe this thread isn't at least 50 pages up in here. This show is the best show on TV, even if Simmons also thinks so.

Good post, I agree, the 4th season was amazing. Those kid actors were great.

Not only that, but it's setting up for a big last season.

In terms of the seasons, I would rank them like so:

4th
3rd
1st
2nd

And they were all awesome.

I don't think people realize how rare it is for a show to keep getting better and better as the years go on. Most "good" shows usually only have one great, possible two good seasons and they survive on hype for the remainder of their existence.

I posted that having watched maybe the first 6 episodes of the fourth season, and it really picked up after that...

it took me awhile to endear myself to the kids, but love the arc the storyline took....

I have heard the fifth season will focus on the media which I can't wait for....
