I can't believe that Arrested Development season four is going to be released all in one go! Is that, like, normal practice for NetFlix when releasing new TV material? I know they release whole series' of older shows, but not new shows in their entirety.
Back to The Wire. Yeah, it ended in spectacular fashion. For me, almost every episode felt like a movie. Well, at first, anyway--once familiarity with all the characters set in less so, but that's natural. Either way, the fantastic cinematic way in which it ended couldn't have been more fitting. Every arc was wrapped up, and other than bogus endings for some of the characters (Omaaaar!! Nooooo!! Don't go out like that, maaan!!!), every character was perfectly handled right up until the end.
What hooked me the most? The realism. Kash knows hustlers, and all that phone swapping/ditching was spot on
Im gonna get on this Shield show next. I've definitely caught the cop show fever. Still hate dem pigs, but for some reason I still want them to save the day on my TV/Laptop lol.
To anyone who's seen The Wire, what season do you think had the best version of the opening theme song? For me it's season two. When I think of that song, that's the version that instantly springs to mind, whereas I find hard to even remember what the others even sound like.
