Torsten and I watched the first episode of The Wire last night. We put Season 1 on hold at the library weeks ago and finally the other day we came to the top of the queue. Torsten had seen Season 4, and I had never seen the show at all.
Torsten loved it. I... did not. I didn't hate it. But it felt so LONG. And it was complicated and I didn't understand what was happening half the time and so I was mostly just confused except every now and then I was sad because something sad happened. And I didn't really like that combination of feelings very much.
I'm going to give it a couple more episodes to see if I become invested. My hopes aren't high. Torsten will be crushed if I don't like it. He wants to watch the entire series together. If I can't get into it he's going to have to go it alone, and he's not going to like that, and quite honestly it probably won't even end up happening.
But maybe I'll end up liking it. We'll see.
Although, given that I love Sex and the City and Friends and House and American Idol, and can barely tolerate 24, what do we think the odds are that I will end up really liking The Wire?
I'm actually serious here, I want some input. It seems like everywhere I go people are raving about The Wire, all different types of people with all different types of taste. It sounded like it was one of those shows that everyone likes. Transcendental, even. Is it? Will it grow on me? Or is it/am I a lost cause?
