This formula worked pretty successfully for a while. It sucked last year, though.

Heard great things about it so I have season 1. Haven't watched it yet, someone told my wife that it would be too violent for her.

I plan to watch it within the month. Jason Whitlock is fairly obsessed with it on Twitter.

The Wire is an awesome show. I'm continually surprised by the lack of press that show gets. It is very well done and I have yet to talk to someone who has seen it and hasn't loved it.

The Wire is an excellent show. Lots of really good character development and acting. All 5 seasons are a bit different, it's not just one long repetitive story. There's a lot of violence and swearing, but it goes well with the show. Can't imagine an adult being too offended by it.

Don't recall seeing too many current shows on regular tv. Anyone else remember when it used to be a galore of options - MASH, Dallas, Cosby Show, Three's Company, Knight Rider, Dukes of Hazard, Family Ties, Quantum Leap, Magnum PI, Nightcourt, The Wonder Years and probably countless of others? ;-7

There are still tons of crappy sitcoms on regular TV.

Sorry, I'm not that old to remember.

Oh, and you forgot The A-Team. Foley, Doyle, Tiger... The Jewelry Man...

MacGyver, Quantam Leap, and X-Files were about the only thing worth watching.

I'm somewhat nostalgic for 90's TV.

Anyone remember Unsolved Mysteries? That show scared the living bejeezus out of me when I was a kid.
