Seriously... How is The Wire so good? I remember when my stepdad watched the first episode... I either had homework or was playing video games or something.
Let's take a step back. My wife and I switched cable providers to DirecTV through AT&T. With that you can get an app that allows you to watch the stuff on your DVR on your phone. But because we paid an extra $5 a month for all HBO channels it also allows us to get HBO Go. So I've been watching all of the amazing HBO shows I have missed. Like:
Band of Brothers
Flight of The Conchords
and The Jinx
The Wire might be one of the best (if not THE best) crime dramas I've ever watched.
