Are people full of shit or is this really the best show ever made?

See here's the thing, when someone says "best show evuh made", everyone has a different idea in their head what that's supposed to mean. Any show will fail that expectation.
Best attitude to have going into the wire is it's a good show for reasons you may or may not currently know you appreciate.
Because gay people exist IRL retards whether you like it or not, the topic of sexual identity in ghetto communities is a pertinent yet underexplored topic.
The fact it is examined within a masculine bad ass figure brings an interesting negation to it and is an important character trait in establishing Omar's identity as an interior outsider to the usual gang community.
You're going to get a lot of shitposting from meme posters because they're tired of these threads or some shit, but no, I wouldn't say it's the best show ever made, but it is pretty good.
Final season could have been better though, I think.
I can't think of a show where the final season was the best
Unless it was something like, oh finally this show is ending
But otherwise nah, it's always the season where they decide to jump the shark or the writing just gets really weak
Wow that yellow pad destroyed the frame and shit all over the cinematographer's vision, all so fucking plebs wouldn't feel like they are going blind. Fuck widescreen.
I'm off to fellate homeless men.

>Affairs within the family reaching boiling point
>That purposefully infuriating final return to asshole status quo
In all honesty, The Wire set the bar for a TV series so fucking high that I cannot see anything else.
Sopranos obviously deserves an honorable mention and Treme aswell, but both of these are definitely not on the same level of the Wire.
writting on the show was weaker for s4/5
season 5 just sucked
people shit on season 2 but i thought it was great. probably a better direction to take the show
sopranos>wire>every othet show is masturbation
Quite liked season 1, though it seemed to end at an arbitrary point when they were like "OK lets just arrest them now"
Season 2 I found really boring
Season 3 I started to watch episode 1 but just lost enthusiasm. I thought it was meant to be one of the best shows ever made but I just didnt get into it. It seemed so dated like it was made in the early 90s
