So in the past I've tried to get into The Wire, and failed. 1st attempt - Quit after the 1st episode. 2nd attempt - Quit after the 6th episode. So this week I've given it a 3rd attempt and just finished the 8th episode.... and I'm bored. For those who praise The Wire as the best TV show ever, it gets better after the 1st season right? The 1st is setting the table and introducing characters and the themes of the cops/dealers? Edit - I've heard spoilers throughout the years, so don't bother with the cute "Have you got to the point that ______ dies?"
