So I know I'm late to this party but we just finished the first season of The Wire. I can't wait for Season 2. I am not sure where Season 2 will be headed..., I will stop here so as to avoid any spoilers. If you, like me, are stuck in 2002 and haven't watched it yet, go for it. It takes a couple of episodes to get into it but give it a chance. You'll get hooked.
