Season 2 is really good on the rewatch after youve seen thrm all. Im not more enlightened after rewatching unfortunately, but i really enjoyed it. Its almost interchangeable with season 3 in my rankings, but theres a little more feeling of conclusion at the end of season 2 for me so it gets the nod.
Frankly, I'd go 2 > 1 > 3, mainly because a have a few small problems with 3 that I don't have with the others, but they are all nearly perfect, so I could see anyone preferring them in any order.
Well I'm re-watching Season 1, and I just ordered Season 2. I'm not waiting until Christmas for this. LOL @ me.
I put 1 slightly behind because it's the least ambitious and it was establishing the show.
But really they're all close enough that it's nitpicking to rank them.
Season 2 is so unfairly maligned.
If you have hbo you can watch them all on hbo go.
That's how I feel with my group of friends. I loved that season.
I would agree with this. I liked season 2, but I could see people liking 1 or 3 better. 4 is clearly the best, 5 clearly the worst. 1 - 3 up for debate.
My list: 4 > 3 > 2 > 1 > 5.

Amazon usually puts the box set on sale for $80 or $90 around the holidays.
I have the box set to keep, and loan out the season sets.

For me, it was bc of Zig...much less obnoxious on subsequent viewings.
Ugh, Ziggy. I'm annoyed right now just thinking about that character.
Does The Wire get better...?
Was Corey Jackson misused at Maryland?
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
I didn't like season 2 on my first watch because I wasn't ready for the change in the scope of the show and also I didn't sell myself on the new characters. I shortchanged myself and when that emotional climax hit with the sobotkas I wasn't invested.
when I watched it again it just murdered me. It might actually be my favorite season. I think for me it might be
season 3 has some stunning scenes which kind of makes me people overrate it. omar and bunk, mcnulty confronts brianna, avon and string, and the overrated brother mouzone.
also giving up on the wire after about 4 episodes is like giving up on a movie after 8 minutes.
I don't know no Corey Jackson. LOL!!!
The rinky dink cable company out here in the weeds has some beef going with HBO and we don't get HBO Go. They have like 5 episodes of Season 4 on On Demand, and they keep rolling it over. So I just went ahead and bought it.
You guys were right about Breaking Bad, so The Wire goes onto my list, too...
The Wire is to breaking bad as Manhattan, NY is to Manhattan, KS.
Season 4 is unequivocally #1
Where 2, 3 and 1 fall? I can understand the debate.
5 was clearly not on par with the rest but very worth watching.
I had a similar experience as smiley. I declared after ep. 1 sea. 1 that I was done. My wife talked me into ep. 2. I still wasn't thrill, by episode 4, I hated that the show ended and I had to wait a week for the next one. I finally understood what crack cocaine felt like.
Season 4 will be very difficult for any tv program, movie, mini series, whatever to equal. It is simply awesomely tragic.
Seriously the only two people I fuckin hate in the in the world are the ppl that dont like the Wire and the ppl that dont like Arrested Development. You ppl suck. For realz
A friend gave me the whole series recently (a Lima Peru special). I am in the middle of season 3 right now and love it (all of it). I liked season 2. I think it might be better than the Soproanos.
I sometimes feel bad as I watch it, because I relaize that there are only 5 seasons, and I am getting closer to the end.
Quit breaking all our balls because you're a shitty speller.
classlessthug: I have too much on my plate to worry about the fact that my junk intimidates some needle D undergrad.
That's my order, but you can't really go wrong in any order. I do understand keeg's point about a few stunning scenes maybe overrating season 3, but you can't just take away those scenes.
This... the more I watch it, the more Season 2 grows on me.
