HBO (ended 2008)
Seasons Three and One are tied on my list of best seasons; this isn't saying Season Two is bad, just that it takes longer to start up than the others. For a new viewer I'd go with Season One to start off. Season Three builds upon the foundations made during the first two seasons; Season Two has some real emotional yanks that a viewer who missed the first season would shrug off.
Season 3- I loved the Stringer story line and the drug free zone. This season felt like a conclusion to season 1.
Season 1 - The season that started it all.
Season 2 - Did not like some aspects of this season but I did like all of the port/water scenes.
Season 4 - Can't say until I have watched the whole season. I have seen the first 3 episodes and really like the direction it is going. The wire unit is so different now but I do not feel that it is bad.
I like season one...season two started off to slow...but shaped up towards the end....but SEASON 3 is definitely my favorite. You got Stringer who sets up Brother Mouzone behind Barksdale back. When Barksdale get out its a war between his crew and Marlo's crew. Then Barksdale and Stringer no longer sees eye to eye on the way business is handled. Stringer confesses to Barksdale about killing his nep. Dee...Omar goes to shoot Bro. Mouzone only to relize that Stringer lied to him, so he lets him live. Omar Home girl gets killed while robbing a Barksdale stash house. And then the take a shot at Omar while he taking his Grandmother to church on a Sunday morning. Upset at how Barksdale handling business Stringer sets him up...meanwhile Barksdale sells Stringer out to be killed by Bro. Mouzone and Omar who both want revenge.
I swear that season had it all. Corrupt polticians, Police, and of course your gangsta story. Best Season ever!
Season 4 is pretty good so far...I just gotta keep watching.
My favourite is the first s., and I liked the 3rd because of Avon and Stringer.
Can anyone tell me if Avon will appear in the 4th or 5th season? Without him I can't imagine The Wire show...
