What Victarion said about it not holding your hand at the beginning...
This was great. It just dropped you into the middle of the shit and you were on your own. It made everything seem more real, like all these characters really did exist before you got a look into their lives. This crazy Baltimore existed before you began watching. I liken it to the adjustment you have to make when entering a big city for the first time. You gotta get your bearings and your feet under you since things are so different than what you're used to. The city is moving on with or without you. Catch up, keep up, because no one else cares.
Oh yeah have we mentioned how great the theme song is yet? If so, agreed. If not, how great was this theme song?
