Ep. 51 - The Wire: Season 1

February 1, 2018


After an extended Australian summer break, Brod and Damask return to tackle one of the greatest TV show of all time. No, not NCIS. Not Big Bang Theory. Not The Voice. Not Fuller House. All of those choices are terrible! We're talking about THE WIRE, you idiot. With the body count in Baltimore rising the Bad News Bears of police task-forces, rule-breaking hero McNulty, the fiercely loyal Greggs, their stoic lieutenant Daniels, and everyone’s favourite Freamon, pursue the Barksdale gang and leader, Avon. D’Angelo's words, “It ain’t about right, it’s about money,” rings true for everybody, no matter which side of The Game they’re on. Whether it be Wallace struggling to deal with the violent realities of gang life, or Lieutenant Daniels having to compromise his ideals for the good of the department, everyone’s just trying to survive.
