Anway i was on some website a few months ago that kept mentioning “the wire” as a great show. At the time i loved “NYPD Blue” so it probably was something to do with this. So i ordered The DVD’s from Amazon and from the first episode the show was awesome. Maybe not as great as “NYPD Blue” but at least 2nd to that show.
The show ive seen was criticzied in the british press due to its “language” and reviewers not knowing what was said half the time.
Its kinda funny, the show is set in Baltimore,Maryland in the US, which is near a town we dont get to see called “Dundalk” which is where i live. From the TV show it gives the impression that this town is a Drug invested sewer, luckily the same town in ireland is not the same.
Not to mention that two of shows characters came up with the name of a “fake infornmant” which they called “fuzzy dunlop” a name which made me laugh and that i use for some online games such as Valves Team Fortress 2. The main character of the show is a Detective by the name of “Mc Nulty” whos is an Irish-American Drunk with a good heart. The VEry Last episode in the 5 Series leaves “mc Nulty” in a Coffin and this great tune from the “Pogues”;
