So if any charming English or any other recievers of the BBC have been paying attention, first episode of "The Wire" is airing tonight on BBC2. Although they've given it the pathetic slot of 11:20pm it's still a fucking great day for english television.

If you have any interest in decent drama/plot at ALL then PLEASE i'm begging you, give this show a try. I could rant on for hours about how great it is, but in the interest of tl;dr i'll turn to someone more qualified to detail the absolute brilliance that is this program.

But even he can't really describe how brilliant it is, it makes 99% of television look utterly redundant, WATCH IT

First episode was certainly intriguing. I'll be tuning in tomorrow night aswell.

Thanks for the heads-up.

Is a quality show but like Channel 4 and the Sopranos they've given it a pathetic slot that nobody will stay up for.

Love that scene so much.

If you're watching it, then PLEASE give it a decent try and at least watch the first four or five episodes before you decide you're bored, the series is a definite slow burner, but it's well worth the wait.

Barksdale crew ftw, although I think things get really interesting during series 3 when Marlo starts to make his moves.
