The Wire
Posted by James H> on Nov 22, 2005
I've been interested in seeing this show since first hearing of it. I'm normally not much of a fan of cop shows, but I get the impression that The Wire is somewhat along the lines of The Shield and Boomtown, two of my all-time favourite series.

What I find odd is that the show has never been picked up by a Canadian network (same for Carnivale and Deadwood). A lot of critics consider The Wire to be the best drama on television. You'd think Showcase would've snapped it up long ago. Just another reason to get The Movie Network I guess.

I'll probably be posting a review of Deadwood within the next couple of weeks.

Let me just say that I can't imagine any network picking it up, even Showcase, because of the language. It's the most file show you've ever heard.
