    Loved this show when it was airing back in the day - although I was too young to really understand it at the time (lol).

    I get it now, and it's definitely one of the more gritty television shows you could get your hands on.

    Yep, it was a great show. I didn't watch it when it was first broadcast as it felt overhyped, but when I eventually saw it, I had definitely underestimated it. Fantastic show with a great cast and some great quotes.

    Its pretty awesome show, I watched the first 4 seasons last year and then finished it about 2 months ago. The first two seasons seem like they have aged badly due to how much tech changed since the show came out. I hope they do a remake soon of it and have a few full length tv seasons, The Wire had way too few episodes.

    Roommate started to watch it last week, reminds me how good this show is !
    I was glad to see some of the actors in the last season of Walking Dead.

    This is the scene that convinced me to watch that show (and the numerous praises about it on reddit) :

    Funny that you mentioned that. I was big into The Soprano's at the time this came out and I remember thinking almost the same exact thing. I thought HBO was just taking advantage of the popularity of The Soprano's by trying to make another "dark" show. I know it's so much more than that now, but at the time I thought it was going to be so corny. They did a surprisingly good job or portraying how things really do operate at the various levels in society, specifically inner cities.
