    Does anyone else watch this show?

    It is absolutely incredible to me and I've been addicted watching the first two seasons on DVD. I was just wondering if/what anyone else thought of the show.

    The devil himself would probably come get me if I wrote the vulgarity down what I personally think of that show.

    Awesome, so many great characters in that show. From McNulty to Bubbles to Stringer Bell, there are few shows that can compete with characters this real and compelling.

    Yeah, bubbles is especially amusing/deep.
    Interesting too are the young runners/hoodlums who get caught-up and shot-up so early in life...

    This show really shows the different sides of the crack epidemic in U.S. cities...
