Thats crazy that this was brought up just now because I swear to you I just finished rewatching season 2 of The Wire not more than an hour ago. It took me a mere 4 days. I really don't understand the criticism that season 2 gets for being "slow". The storyline and dialogue keeps that sh*t interesting from the first second to the last. Sure there's not as much street sh*t. Not as much Bodie or Avon or Stringer or Omar, but the intricacy of the writing plus how it sets up the remaining seasons makes season 2 arguably the best season imo. Not the most entertaining, but the best.

It gave you the whole, much bigger picture of the Baltimore criminal underworld. I love season 2. I'm fine with less junkies, murders, and street corners. I like to see the inner workings.
Here's the thing most of the season two supporters don't understand. When people hear of The Wire, the thing they find appealing is that it's pretty much known as the realest street show of all time. Now, I'm far from a hood dude, but that type of sh*t is still entertaining to me every now and again, and to hear that The Wire pulled it off perfectly, that's what drew me and most other people in, and that's what we went into it expecting. Then season two caught us completely off guard. That's not why we got into the show. Season two is good as a stand-alone season. But as a part of the bigger picture, it is clearly the weakest season. And there is a reason 95 percent of viewers agree with that sentiment.

Anyway, why are so many people in this thread repeating the same sh*t over and over again. Do you not read before you post? The Wire wasn't anywhere even remotely close to as popular as it is now until years after it was over. Oz was made before HBO had any mainstream respect, so people didn't know to check for it at the time.

I really don't understand how some people are acting like this list is ranking the HBO shows by critical acclaim. This is ranking the shows by TV viewers at the time of airing.

I know maybe The Wire's hipster cred has come around to the point at which the obvious worst season will be praised as the best..

Just a fair-warning, I haven't watched it in years, but I talked to a guy who just rewatched the entire series and he said the first few seasons have not aged well at all and seem extremely dated.

But then again, The Wire season one seems extremely dated nowadays, to, and I just watched that recently and while I could tell it was very dated, I still enjoyed it.

Just fair-warning, though.
Nonsense. Game of Thrones isn't even in the same league as The Sopranos.

Game Of Throne's is on pace to be among the GOAT's. Not sure what show you're watching. Soprano's is one of my all-time favorite shows, I wasn't knocking it.

that show had a horrible storyline but it had great bits and actors. It was just missing a good story.

You dudes go overboard with this Sopranos and Wire sh*t. None of these shows are way better than the others.

Sopranos and The Wire are obviously the best, and more than likely, they've had the greatest commercial success when you take DVDs into account. Maybe s3x and the City beats them.. maybe not.

Sopranos and The Wire are the best shows easily though. I can't speak on Oz, since I (probably like most people who've never tried to get into it) don't particularly care to watch forced sodomy (also why I never watched Rome. First time I flipped past it, a bunch of dudes were about to r*pe some guy...).

Boardwalk kinda jumped the shark already.. but it's good enough to keep watching.. won't supplant any of the top shows though.

Game of Thrones will easily go down as a Top 5 HBO show, and when it's all over.. it will probably join Sopranos and The Wire as the holy trinity of HBO shows. Will it be better? Prob not.. but it will put itself into the same class.

Uhuh. Most overrated of all time, maybe.

I wasn't knocking you either, it was your friend who was confused; though now it's apparent that he's not the only one.

Just started The Wire. Started off a little slow, but it's picking up. On the fifth episode. D'Angelo's speeches to the people in the low rises are amazing

HBO is the GOAT!!!

The Sopranos, The Wire, Game Of Thrones, Six Feet Under, Entourage, Deadwood, Eastbound, Curb >>>>>>

I still need to peep Oz

IMO Six Feet Under is the most underrated HBO show
