There is no 1 scene that will make you want to watch the show but here are a couple I liked a lot more than that opening.

The famous F word scene.

Omar testifies

DeAngelo teaches "the Game" using Chess as a metaphor

For those in doubt about the validity of The Wire being the best show on television, take a look at this opening scene. Absolutely classic.

I've never seen the show and this scene did nothing to convince me that I am missing something



Yeah I guess you need to know the characters to appreciate the video. FlashyG's video choices are better.

The show is so character dependent and has such a huge complex storyline that I think it's pretty tough for anyone to watch one clip and get into it.

The chess scene would probably be my choice though, if I had to pick one.

Copy that, I will definitely have to give it a try if you think it's good.

You basically deserve several life time bans from television and television related threads. You can try to appeal this, but I don't think it will do you much good.

Watching Boardwalk Empire, still in the second season. Its ok cant really put it into the Breaking Bad, Soprano, Dexter type yet. Will be watching as my next show The Wire.

Also really like the US version of Shameless and obviously Curb Your Enthusiasm
