Apparently there IS some nostalgia to this shit right here. (Get it? Old stuff! IMDB Memorable Quotes!)
Ugh, I hate reading. Someone tell me when they film a version of this and I’ll check it out.

This is really great. Like, really really great. That is all.
I had the opposite reaction. I was all “Ugh, so much reading, where are the pictures?” But, like, honestly I was.
“Now, Mr. Bruce my good man, I daresay I have figured out what is vexing our Mother nation at this point in time. We used to craft good and services domestically. Build homegrown industry. The problem as it stands currently is we outsource our trade to the dark continent and wait for the revenue of our foreign grown goods to fill our coffers.” — Lord Francis Sobotka-Smythe
I just finished watching Season One, and therefore cannot continue reading these comments (no spoil-o), BUT know that I will miss this WHOLE POST very much.
Read you later, alligators!
She’s gone, let’s all downvote her! It’ll be a fun surprise for her at Monster’s Ball! Alternate fun surprise: upvote the most spoilerific comment, so it makes the top rated comments.

Someday, when I’m feeling brave, I’ll expand on this opinion: while very good, The Wire is not great. It is
…in the top 10 percent of TV shows, IMO, but not in the top 5 percent.
(written from my stupid iPhone which entered in my comment too quickly)
Winwood? Is that you? Have you taken over Werttrew’s account? We miss you, buddy, but this is taking it a bit far.
Rather than debate the merits of The Wire, I would like to flip this around and ask which shows you would put ahead of The Wire?
Boooo! #1 show of all time!!
(I LOVE IT).
I am SO not interested. I tried to read that series of children’s books that they made based on Oz. Just. Plain. Nonsense. They replaced all the main characters with monkey birds and stuff. It was like some kind of song by the band KoRn.
If challenging the King, it is ESSENTIAL that one’s aim be true.
