Finally scratched it off my wishlist. The show appropriately potrays the drug era of US, the dirty side of the so called the best country in the world. The casting, story telling was such perfectly done that you keep yourself engrossed in it. But, out of every character, Omar turned out to be my favourite. Definitely goes down as one of the best homicide series. 👌👌

It isn't perfect...BUT the writing and characters are some of the best ever written. In a certain mood my favorite thing ever made

There probably isn't a more true to life depiction of the drug trade in the 2000s. How its mixed with law enforcement, politics and media is fascinating. Excellent characters. Excellent stories. Must watch.

The greatest TV show ever written. I say “written” because it’s the writing in particular that makes it stand out.

My all time favourite tv-show, period. It is rich in almost all aspects of story-telling and you will get completely engulfed in the city of Baltimore and the different social structures of the city. A major part of this show is displaying how different spheres of society interact with each other, for better or for worse. The show is ridden of stereotypes and you will find police officers who are sloppy, lazy, incompetent and outright malevolent, and you will experience characters like Bubbles who is as sympathetic a drug addict as you will ever see. By the end of the show, the viewer will have experienced more than a 100 exciting characters that all intertwine with each other. The show does an amazing job telling a story about how a city functions with all its different stakeholders and how status quo is maintained by dysfunctional structures. An amazing show!

The best series in the world! Get through the first 3 episodes which feels like CSI and you will be rewarded

Var lige et par omgange om at komme i gang med denne - missede lidt uden undertekster pga. rimelig meget drug-slang. Men, med undertekster, blev jeg ret bidt af den 👌🏻
