I just finished watching Season 1 of The Wire1, and I can’t believe how ahead of its time it is. You would think that it just came out, when actually, it was released 13 years ago. If this came out today, it would compete with current blockbuster series like Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad.
The characters–from the police to the drug dealers2–they’re all memorable, with personalities that you begin to root for. Whether they’re good or bad, their character development holds onto your mind and heart as they progress through the story.
For someone who always wanted to watch this show, but never quite found the time to, I regret not getting here sooner.
