It's awesome just watching it right now - finishing up episode 4 and have 5 downloading as we speak.

Harrelson is unreal in it, his best role yet for sure

can someone who's seen the wire (10/10) or the shield (8/10) comment on this show?


s2 of house of cards was good, but not as good as s1

wire is clearly a classic, but doesn't really compare with true detective.

its a character drama, if you're the kind of person only interested in plot it is a little slow.
if you ever try watching it again you can start with season 2 (sobotkas' and the longshoremen) it may be easier for you to get into.

i DL'ed the first few eps of true detective, will give it a watch.

no i dont think its better than the wire.

I think they are just different niches..

wire is awesome.

I think you'll like true detective if you liked the wire. wire is a classic thats for sure. but I just cant really compare the two. the one thing, you say character drama and I think true detective is character drama to the extreme.
anyway I hope you like it.

ya I can see that. at least you gave it a try.. if you're willing to go 2 more episodes it starts getting pretty intense.

It's a very slow TV show, very in depth character development. I think Mathew and Harelson do a great job.
