If there is any show you watch after breaking bad, I can't recommend the Wire enough.
Especially considering your profession, I don't think there's been a better portrayal of law enforcement than that show.
Its a masterpiece. You can watch the whole series online here
Last time I checked it was the highest rated movie or TV show on IMDB with a rating of 9.8 out of 10.
Yeah, I remember you mentioning this show to me quite a while back. I actually started watching it about 6-8 months ago. I got through the first two seasons and thought it was amazing. Then I discovered Breaking Bad and it consumed my entire being until I finally finished the most recent season a few weeks ago. Since then I've been trying to catch up on The Walking Dead (actually just watched the most recent episode tonight). I'll be diving head first into season 3 of The Wire next. It should fill the gap between the end of Dead and the beginning of the final season of Bad. One show at a time is all the more I can squeeze into my schedule. And even then it takes forever for me to get through a season.
But you were right Flashy... The Wire is fantastic. There's nothing spoon-fed about it. They leave you to be responsible for understanding the nuance and keeping track of all the players as the plot unfolds. It's brilliant, and the only Law Enforcement related show I've ever been able to latch onto (except for maybe CHiPs as a 5 year old
Thanks for the link btw. Love must be spread, but it's good to have a stream for when I forget the tablet at home.
