Who would be down watching The Wire with me? That's a big hole in my TV show history and it needs filling. A lot of people still consider it the best show ever made.

I would be interested in watching an episode a week with a group and discussing in detail here. BaldMove (my favorite TV podcast) doesn't have any coverage, so I will need some people to talk about the show in depth. We could even make a featured show forum for it if we get enough interest.

This has also been one of the shows that I have wanted to see. I don't even really know what it's about but I know that it is very popular and supposubly good.

Would be down. They are 1h, right?

I started watching it a while back on Amazon prime video. I think I got halfway through the first season. I liked it, but other shows I was watching at the time got my attention over it. I might be interested in watching more episodes.

You can be tentative. You can handle 1 hour a week. I'm thinking start sometime after my LA trip. So late June or early July

I just want to say that I am really excited to have the community watch going.

Tyler if we wait until you are back from LA are we going to run into any scheduling with GoT/Westworld? I bet this would be lower priority than either of those two shows.

Westworld isn't until 2018.
Yes, we will run into conflicts with GoT, but I'm assuming everyone can squeeze this into their week too.

Are you going to make Kathryn watch too? I'll force Jocelyn to watch the pilot and then she will probably tap out.

You have to watch the first 3 or 4 episodes to get a true understanding of the magnitude of this show. The pilot isn't enough to judge. It just keeps getting better and better with every episode.

Seriously? The Wire has been voted numerous times to be the top show ever on TV. EVER. The show is truly really good. It answers every question, lets you know where people go when they disappear and why they are hunting dogs. Watch the Wire. its awesome.

Plex hasn't been working for days. And I already attempted the wire once, not possible to binge.
