    I just finished season 3 on DVD and start season 4 tonight. Holy crap is it good.

    The only bad thing about the show is that it has turned me into an insufferable conversationalist because I am constantly recommending it or referencing it to make a point.

    I loved that quote. Then I saw it again in Night Moves a Gene Hackman detective film from 1975. I still like it, but it makes me sad to think some of my favorite lines from The Wire might be borrowed/stolen/sampled from other sources.

    I think you mean:

    “Yay, now I get to watch it all again!”

    I almost unconsciously drop relatively innocuous Wire quotes into my daily discourse with people and have done so for years.

    It is very satisfying when you see that glimmer of recognition in someone’s eye. Like a secret handshake for a fraternity or some shit.

    I just can’t make it past S01E05 or 06. I’ve tried 3 times and I just lose interest.

    I do not own a TV, nor do I watch it. It’s just too thin of a soup. I heard about and downloaded the first season of The Wire, and after watching a couple shows I was hooked. Unfortunately, the disfunctional world portrayed therein has only worsened since. I won’t watch it again, it’s too depressing. It’s still the best thing I have ever seen. Period.
