The Shield is absolutely amazing...pretty brutal in places but amazing!
Definitely one of my favourites along with The West Wing.
I'd heard good things about The Wire mentioned above so rented it...have to say I had real trouble getting into the first episodes...there was so much street talk it was difficult to undersand even with subtitles on.
Me and the misses were sat taking turns going
Does it improve over time? I don't think we got past the first disc.
I've just recently started watching this and while it's OK I'm not understanding why everyone's getting so excited about it here.
It's no better than any of the other cop shows around IMO. Although i'm only on season 1 ep 5 so maybe it gets better.
One of the best shows ever made
who can forget Dutch and Claudette? A wonderful duo.
