At last, we get to watch 'The Wire' in this country.
The measure of how long it has taken to get to our TV screens lies in its being in the old 14:9 format (like below), not the new widescreen 'letterbox'. I had to juggle with the settings on my TV to get a sensible sized picture.
So far - utterly brilliant, beginning with the opening scene of a slow dialogue about a murder victim who always used to steal the 'pot' in a street crap game. Asked by a detective why the others used to let him play if they knew this was what he would do, the answer was, "Y'got to. This is America, man."
Don't watch if you don't like swearing, though.
And why, why, was it on at 11.20pm?
