Just seeing the title of the first video made me tear up.

In looking back, I think Season 1 may be my favorite season. It's like picking your favorite child, though.

I watched all of The West Wing last summer cold and had seen some of Spotsnight and all of Studio 60. While it was pretty damn good overall, it was also uneven and agree on the obvious "strings" aspect.

Deadwood, Rome and Twin Peaks are the only I would hold up there with The Wire with no real preference among them.

I think my two favorite TV scenes of all time are that scene where Dee explains chess and the scene in Deadwood when Dan fights Captain Turner.

Yeah, it was, but I found it pissed me off more than compelled me. Those kids never stood a ****ing chance. I found the docks storyline almost dry compared to the Barksdale side of things. Marlo is just a psychopath. I've just started season five, but right now, I'd rank my favorites in this order.

3, 1, 4, 2

Still, there is nothing better than a drinking scene with McNaulty and Bunk.

And its even worse in real inner-city life.

What The Wire does is present an incredibly accurate depiction of the American city, but its fictional elements work to "lighten up" the subject matter just a tiny bit so that the show is somewhat palatable to watch. Season 4 & 5 are the bleakest & hardest to handle, though. I think that's why the may be the best.
