I just watched this series last week.  It was really good.

That's kind of my point .  The show wasn't about developing the characters or giving screen time to the ones you like.  

 

Its like...when you watch some shows....a guy walks into the room and says "hey cousin!" ...not because its normal to refer to your relations by their relation instead of their name, but because the show wants you to know who the person is.  You get a lot of bad dialogue like that in TV shows, when the characters would obviously know what each other are talking about but give this long explanations to inform the viewer.  The wire didn't do that much, and to a degree, treated the characters the same way.  Other shows have more limited casts that don't really reflect the number or variety of people that you run into every day.  So sometimes your left wondering who someone is or what's going on.  To me, that's part of what makes the show so good.

 

I dont recall poor acting, but I do know that some were not professional characters.  I believe bubbs and....I want to say lil' sis but I'm confusing it with bubb rubb and lil sis...but I think they played themselves.

The show wasn't about anything that I liked, could relate to, cared about, etc. It didn't have witty dialogue. It wasn't terribly funny. It didn't have much suspense. There was no real mystery.

 

That's why I didn't like it.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned this one since I haven't been in this thread for a while, but I just finished watching the first (and only thus far) season of "Orange is the New Black" - I thought it was pretty good. Nothing to phone home about, but I would recommend it.

Sure, but I don't have to like that.

I don't have to like that they gave more screen time to a poorly-developed Carcetti than they did the more interesting Sydnor.

(FWIW, I didn't dislike the show. I just didn't love it.)

On a happier note, Sherlock comes back in January! http://www.hitfix.com/whats-alan-watching/pbs-announces-sherlock-season-3-premiere-date

Looking forward to The Returned on the Sundance Channel. The dead come back as zombies, not your typical zombies, but in fully "normal" form, no rotted flesh, brain functional, talking, etc... It's a French show. How do you say zombie en Français? Better be subtitles, not dubbed. The Walking Dead? What's that? It's dead to me.

Finished it last night.

I liked it for the most part. I haven't read much about season 2, did other people like it?

I made it to the final episode of season 1. Heard season two sucks so not really rushing to get to it.

I have mixed feelings about it. I love watching Lt Winters and Inigo Montoya - some of my favorite actors, but the writing and plot machinations went a little haywire and I got tired of Claire Dane's Marty Feldman eyes crazy act. I'm convinced that this show would have been great as a 10 episode miniseries a la BBC, but Showtime is Dextering Homeland, milking it for as many seasons as it can. Not bothering with season 3 and putting it at the end of the to watch list.

Bold is about right.

 

I'm still watching, but it's no longer the first thing I do when it's available to me… or the second.
