Topic: tv shows
suggestions of something that is hopefully at least 3/4 as good as the wire, to engross myself in please.
additional info: i don't want to be a lost fanboy as watching people discuss the philosophical nature of this show makes me sick to my stomach and i don't think i'll be able to take it if i ever become one of them (based 98% on the fact that lost has so many characters that are just given names of known philosophers. deep yo) as for other shows, i've seen s2 of prison break and it was appalling. i already like house, a lot. i've watched most of sopranos already but got bored eventually. shows like entourage which show various aspects of rich people lives aren't that interesting to me personally either but i can understand why many like it i suppose. dexter is pretty good, but i've only seen s1 of it.
i've been recommended weeds a few times, might check that out. what i liked about the wire is that i found nearly every character likeable and enjoyable, and i'd like a show that draws me in based on the character development rather the plot if that makes sense? plot driven shows such as lost seems to be (i might be wrong here, i've only seen s1 of it) and didn't really find that i got much out of it other than oo wot happens next?! i'm not meaning to come down on it harshly, i just mean i want something not like it! i can totally see why lost is as addictive as it is
