Finished: “The Wire” Season 1

My husband G. Grod and I just finished The Wire, Season 1. We’re going to try to watch some movies and tv (Top Chef Masters and Fashion Show) before we start season 2.

My favorite character, of many, I think has to be Omar. Here, then, for others who have or will watch Season 1, are links to Alan Sepinwall’s S1 rewind posts for Wire Newbies, with reader comments:

1. “The Target”
2. “The Detail
3. “The Buys
4. “Old Cases
5. “The Pager
6. “The Wire
7. “One Arrest
8. “Lessons
9. “Game Day
10. “The Cost
11. “The Hunt
12. “Cleaning Up
13. “Sentencing

No spoilers, please. You never know what someone is reading and at what point they’re watching. I can field discussion about S1 details by email, though.

    I haven’t watched The Wire (yet… like everything else, it’s on our Netflix queue… currently we’re working our way through Chuck S1. In a way, I kind of love the summer, because it does allow me to play catch-up with shows I wasn’t watching during the regular season), but I do hope you post thoughts on Top Chef Masters. So far, I’m really liking it, and think the challenges have been, well, suitably challenging for these masters.

    Cool. So what did you and G think of it? I haven’t seen any of it yet, but get the feeling that I’d appreciate it most out of all the recently acclaimed cable series.

    It’s great–great characters, great storytelling, inventive use of TV as a medium for storytelling. Highly recommended, and I hope to be on to S2 this week.

    I’m enjoying catching up, too, both with Wire and Sports Night. I’ll watch Top Chef, soon, now that we’ve finished S1.
