A Quick Recommendation

Thursday 9th December 2010

The Wire. Not many people seem to watch it, or to have even heard of it. Which is a real shame, because it’s absolutely brilliant. There’s nothing particularly original I can say about it, so here’s an old clip from Screenwipe about it:

It’s not an easy watch, by any means. The dialect and slang is sometimes difficult to understand, and you have to really pay attention to what’s happening in order to understand the show. There’s no dramatic background music to highlight the significant moments, and no convenient characters who ask questions purely for exposition. But give it the attention it deserves and you’ll find a thoroughly intelligent, complex, and utterly compelling show.
