I brought the whole series 1 - 5 on ebay and its probably the best thing I've seen in ages ( except maybe the Shield ) sat down and watched it over a slack few days, excellant and it gets better all the way through, take my word for it...top show.

Have the DVD sat on the coffee table.. I haven't had a chance to start watching it yet, but was leant it by a mate... he raves about it.

Good to hear it isn't just him that rates it.

unless you're a dyke with a strap on cokc I dont think you're going to get your wish somehow... and yes, it's strange. she's fcuking evil.

as for s7 of the shield, it was given to me by a colleague - he d/loaded it off the net. i dont know where from though I'm afraid.

Read the Book Homicide by the bloke that wrote the Wire. Awesome read.

Have seen series 1-3, have series 5 waiting for me and I must buy series 4. Have read Homicide. Can't recommend The Wire enough.

Have to say, from the evidence so far, McNulty is a bit of a legend when it comes to the laydeez (as does Carcetti) :twisted:
