Goofs

When Frank Sobotka's body was pulled out of the river, he had been stabbed a number of times and his throat had been slashed, meaning that he ultimately bled to death. Were that so, his skin pallor should have been virtually sheet white, but both his upper torso and particularly his face were still a very rosy pink. See more »

Another great season...
22 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Wire's first season was a success for many reasons- it was realistic, it had some amazing dialogue, it was able to introduce a lot of characters and story lines and still tell a structural and coherent story and make us care for the characters. Season Two is pretty much the same...

What I really love about The Wire is it's ability not to succumb to viewer manipulation or outlandish story lines. I am not saying that is a bad thing all of the time, but I am glad that there is a show that isn't like that. Of course, because of the realism and grounded nature, many people will probably not enjoy this show because there won't be many 'Thrilling' moments. I do admit that at times in some episodes I would tune out accidentally. It is not a perfect show, but even when I wasn't completely entertained by it or at the edge of my seat, I always felt that it still respected me as a viewer and was more worried with the overall picture.

There is no real rise or drop in quality from the first season, but while I gave the first season an 8/10 overall, I will give the 2nd season an 8.5/10. Part of the reason is because I am getting more accustomed to it's type of story-telling and overall structure, and whenever I look back on it it lingers in my mind. Also, the last shot of Season Two really pleased me.
