    The Wire may be the greatest TV show ever made.

    You're just saying that because you haven't seen Dark yet. ;)
    The Wire is really good too though (bar the first season).

    Last season with the reporters and the serial killer thing was the weakest. Though the progression of the children to where they ended up in series 5 was sad.

    Dunno how many of you fellow fans of The Wire have watched The Corner but well worth checking out David Simon’s mini-series which manages to give an even bleaker perspective of life in Baltimore...

    Brother Mouzone...

    Wallace and Bodie were fantastic characters, with honest story and performance

    About that sort of thing, anyone seen a documentary film called Accidental Courtesy by/about this guy? Considering this interview was three years ago, the bit at the end about Trump is quite something.
    I'm going to search it out.

    Was that the one about the black boys in central park?

    Amazingly jaw dropping tv.

    Do watch the Oprah interview with the boys. It's almost as hard to watch. It's on Netlfix too.

    The film and the series are both pretty funny. There's a new series due on the 19th I think I saw.

    I just sat through an hour of stereotypical, poorly acted flim-flam and OMG there is a second episode, this sh*t goes on forever...I struggled to the end to watch the big finish, and there isn't one. What a waste of everyone's time.

    Its a true story about a horrific miscarriage of justice.
