    I binge watched the fuck out of Season 1 of The Wire on Amazon prime last week and I loved it. Season 2 is not grabbing me the way the first season did. I am 4 episodes into 2. Is it worth sticking with it or did the show blow its load in season 1?

    We couldn't make it past Ep. 1 of Season 1. Maybe on a second viewing, it will grab me.

    I'm in the exact same boat. Season 2 isnt that good so far.

    I don't rank The Wire as high as most on this board do BUT I will say that roughing it through some of it is worth it in the long run. Finish it!

    Season 4 is the best. 2 is probably the weakest, but still ok. 3 is better than 1, and 5 is bad. Overall a great series though.

    Yes, its great. I watched all of the seasons last year and it was fun seeing the old cell phones and whatnot from the early 90's. Great story line too.

    That's kinda the point. David Simon was a Baltimore beat-reporter for years. He exposes people to the truth, and adds a dash of action for the dimwits.

    I saw season 1, and liked it fine, but have no real desire to keep watching :dontknow:

    It's just pretty good

    Stick w/ it, @Dream Theater. It's tits. Every season has a theme; 2 is the waterfront. It's kinda weak to start off, but it picks up. 3-5 are great.

    The true star is Baltimore. Followed by McNulty & The Bunk!
