re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)

I watched the first 5 episodes of The Wire when BBC2 were showing it over here, couldn't really get into it but I should most likely give it another shot seeing as how I like every other HBO drama.

Also any UK folk watching The Shadow Line?

Craig, give it another shot for sure. There are some amazing payoffs for the slow build/development of the first 6-8 episodes.

re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)

Oh I know that, I dunno what caused me to stop watching, guess I just had too many shows going on at once then.

I love my shows with fleshed out characters and well... it's the fucking Wire and any show with this scene:

deserves my attention again.

Ah yes, one of my favorite scenes in the show. My favorite scene is in season 3, I won't spoil it, but when it happens...OH MY GOD!

You pretty much have too when you live parallel to the great lakes or further north. Its either "Winter is Coming" or "Mosquitos are coming" around here. Not sure which is worse.

Slow isn't the right word really, but as a viewer it takes a few episodes to get into the flow of things. This is a good thing though, and is part of the greatness of The Wire.
ya, there's always new characters added so it takes time to get *in* to them. tbh I fucking LOVE the overarching story of s3.

and yeah, as eddiefan says .. can get hate. baffles me to some extent, considering I don't think it's guiltier of being slower than any other season.

as for the season 3 scene you're talking about is it:
Spoiler for "s3:
avon/stringer before they betray each other? cos that fucking ROCKED


edit: reserving judgement on br ba, hoping it improves on what is looking back a relatively weak s3 compared to ...

Maybe spoilers, but nah not really

There are so many great scenes on the show. I think one of my favorites is when Daniels is trying to get a glimpse in person of Avon for the first time. And when he finally does, Avon is wagging his finger saying no. I don't know, but something about that scene left an impression on me.

Best character so far is Omar Little. Put on his own Tour de Force as a witness in the Bird case.

re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)

Anyone watch Wilfred? It's a funny Australian show about a woman and her new boyfriend, and the relationship between her dog Wilfred and her boyfriend. The man (Adam can hear and converse with Wilfred) also the dog smokes bowls, calls people cunts and tries to run Adam out of town, and possibly even tries to kill him. There is going to be a remake with Elijah Wood from Lord of the Rings in the U.S.A. By the way Wilfred is played by a man in a dog suit and he walks around like a human and everything. Bizarre and hilarious.
