The Wire

Having heard good things about a programme called The Wire I decided to record the series. Apart from anything else it isn't shown until well after midnight our time and even if I tried to stay awake, because it goes on for an hour, it means that I'd never finish an episode.

Anyway, with nothing on television the other night we decided to start watching it. Hell it's good. The content is best described as 'gritty' and not for a young audience but it does feel very realistic. It probably helps to have the subtitles on if you want to understand everything that's being said. Much better than some of the silly cop rubbish around at the moment. (You do realise that it's been around for ages. Keep up! - Ed)
