The Wire - some characters

I finished Season 1 of The Wire, which is a high class show, of satisfying complexity. I can't imagine why it hasn't been shown on one of the British channels. Like Deadwood and The Shield I felt it was well paced and pitched, to let you work out what was really going on at just the same speed that the characters do. It is interesting how good screenwriters have got at delivering information at just the right time.
