Holding out a lot of hope for this one,even if its half as good as the last cop show about the Baltimore police department then i will continue to watch.

definitely feels a lot like being back in the world of the wire which is nice, however they're failing on the storytelling and editing front pretty spectacularly with their handling of the "flashbacks"

avatar

Walmart version of the wire, but still very entertaining so far.

Woke bull..... don't waste your time!

This has been one of the best shows this year, could have done with more than six episodes but showed how corrupt the police in the USA are.

Another amazing series from David Simon, one that came at a moment where we do need to discuss police brutality and corruption. It's no easy series to watch but perfectly examines the mentality of the individuals who abuse their power. Like any other Simon series, we're left with an image of hopelessness that makes us wonder whether change can occur if we continue on the path we are now. Some amazing performances from Jon Bernthal, Wunmi Mosaku and Jamie Hector. We got numerous non-fiction TV shows this year but none came close to capturing the journalistic integrity and narrative pull of this series. Amazing!

[HBO Max] George Pelecanos and David Simon offer mastery in dialogue and character building, connecting with "The Wire" in the dissection, not of a corrupt police force, but of a political and social system that feeds corruption. This amplified look at the hard-won mistrust of the security forces is a vision of a rotten society, reminiscent of the documentary "The Force" (2017) in the pessimistic conclusion that the corrupt will be replaced by the corrupt.

It was ok a bit slow definitely not up to the wire's calibre.

This show has the feel of The Wire but the story is not as good. I'm probably going to stop watching after the next episode.
