    FIrst few seasons of Oz were very good imo – tailed off very badly though.

    I’m not trying to dump on your enjoyment but I gave up after the first couple of episodes of Season 2 – if it got any worse than that I’d have been really disappointed.

    Sons of Anarchy, though…

    Thread is officially derailed :D, OP got his answer though.

    Sons of Anarchy – I really like this, much prefer to The Shield, haven’t watched the new season yet though. Not the best show in the world though far from it but I enjoyed it S1-3 anyway.

    meddle, I’ve been enjoying watching the ‘thread derailment’, not a fan of the sci-fi stuff, but Sons of Anarchy is great (only seen seasons 1 and 2 though!).

    (First 3 episodes are being obtained as I type).

    Season 3 is probably my favourite, it’s excellent. The finale is just simply awesome.

    Going back to the Wire – I missed them all the first time around but started a few months back to watch them on FX as they ran the series from the start (Once a week to begin with and then Mon-Fri for series 4).
    After series 4 FX seem to have stopped without showing series 5? Any ideas if it’s going to be shown again or am i going to have to get hold of the series 5 box set? Don’t really want to buy one as it’s the sort of thing i’ll only watch once.
    It’s just annoying to watch 1-4 then have 5 disappear? Cheers

    Don’t miss the first bit it sets it all up. I’m envious of your ignorance of The Wire, it’s brilliant. It’d be so good to watch it all again afresh.

    The Wire had asmuch of a hold on me as Twin Peaks did when I was a kid.

    Sublime TV, even if the final series did go a bit loopy.

    Watched all the Wire series last year and was very impressed, currently working my way through Mad Men and also very impressed.

    Nah there is a Season 5, it’s probably the worst of the lot but it doesn’t tint the show in anyway, I liked it. Yeah FX messed up by just showing 1-4, quite daft.

    Tried your local library? Failing that, you can buy and sell them on eBay/Amazon marketplaces for peanuts.

    I like The Wire but still find it a bit overrated. My favourite tv series is Breaking Bad 🙂

    the 5th season goes a bit wrong in my opinion. It’s still one of the best telly programmes EVER! everyone should watch it.

    I was surprised to find out stringer Bell was English , and mcnulty too , and mayor carcetti is Irish

    Also snoop was actually a real dealer and has served time for murder

    Great show 🙂

    tom, i second Breaking Bad, great series that never really did so well over here.

    I had to buy an ebay special of the 3rd series and don’t know what, if anything is happening with series 4?

    The Wire is very good but lacks cowboys…. Deadwood is betterer

    Series 4 was amazing, best season finale I think I’ve seen! Not sure about getting it on DVD, I downloaded half and watched the other half on telly in Canada.

    Breaking Bad is great, I’ve been holding off the fourth season though. No idea why. Deadwood ftw. Let’s talk comedy, Arrested Development anyone?

    Me either, it’s awesome. Get it done.

    Also I think I prefer The Sopranos over The Wire, but I’ve still not finished it so haven’t experienced the apparently disappointing ending yet.
