  • Good pod that could have been great.

    When they talk about the show it’s fantastic! Wonderful deep dives into the characters, themes, and scenes. It’s one of the best Wire pods for that, BUT the side bars derail this show so hard. We came to listen to people talk about THE WIRE, not stuff that happened in your personal life. It amazes me how many podcasters can’t stay on freaking topic. The sidebars kill this show from being a great one

  • Spoilers, spoilers, and spoilers.

    I guess their target audience is people who know the show already and just want a summary of characters, which is strange to do an episode by episode breakdown if you’re not inviting new watchers of the show but I guess they just needed material during the pandemic. Gave it another chance towards the end of season 1 cause I wanted a debrief and then they spoiled a couple deaths from the Sopranos so I had to stop listening.

  • Unnecessary and Boring 🗑

    The Wire is amazing, this show is two people talking about the Wire and the two hosts are just shallow people who shouldn’t be given the job of analyzing character and/ or narrative.Fans of the show or fans of not being bored to tears should skip this seriously tedious and needless coverage of greatest television show of all time.

  • I live “The Wire.”

    Great podcast. Please organize the episode list better. It’s really confusing to navigate and might turn off folks who aren’t as familiar with the show.

  • Jemele is right about Stringer

    No matter what part Idris Elba plays, to me, he’ll always be creepy Stringer Bell. Also, having worked at a company that brings in containers, I found season 2 great! more
