The Wire
(2002)

Filling the void,and then some!
Like most,when Breaking Bad ended I asked myself the question..."What now?".

Searching for something to fill the void,and something that would at least come close,I stumbled upon "The Wire".

Having never heard of it I knew it was going to be a gamble,but judging by the IMDb rating it was a gamble I was willing to take.And I hit the jackpot!

Drama,action,gripping story lines,good acting(for TV),and a genre that was right up my street i.e. Gangsters,Hip Hop(although liking Hip Hop is not essential to liking The Wire) Drugs and guns etc etc. What I also liked was how both sides to life are shown,from the police perspective to the Drug dealers perspective,and its not as black and white as it sounds.

I don't want to go into too much detail so as not to spoil any of it,and you go in with fresh eyes,I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

All 5 seasons were outstanding,and once ended you will feel like someone has left your life for good.

So,"What now?".
