after the first few shows i was hooked. it took several shows to get into it and into the characters, but after that, it got really interesting. it is very realistic, with all the drug problems, politics within the police dept. and government beurocracy. "D", one of the central characters who sells drugs/manages the drug sellers in the "Towers" (which is in the projects in baltimore) becomes a very likeable character. mcnulty, one of the central character cops, is a real self-centered jerk, but a great cop. all of the characters are excellent actors, and some are likeable and some are irritating, but they are all excellent at portraying who they are. all in all, it is a very good show, and i am now up to watching season 3 (using amazon prime). i just wish they wouldn't have killed off many of the likeable characters :-( i won't tell you which ones, since you need to watch to see! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SERIES!
