The Wire

So after hearing nothing but good things, I finally decided to watch the HBO series The Wire. It originally aired from 2002 to 2008 so im a bit late but glad i eventually decided to watch. I think what i found most appealing about the show is there is no clear cut villain. (at least not in the first season.) The show allows you to see the motivations of all the characters which allows you as a viewer to sympathize with people on both sides of the law.

The character development in the show is also something I noticed. Over the course of the series you begin to see character arcs from multiple characters which overlap each other. One character arc in particular that really resonated with me was that of, "Bodie." He goes from a scared kid to a respected member of a "family" in which he is willing to die for.
