Haven’t written anything in ages, or at least since the wire season 5 ended. Look forward to the DVD box but anyways, what I wanted to write was just a short first impression note on another show by David Simon and Ed Burns, Generation Kill.
I’ve only watched the very first episode and just like the wire I assume it will take a couple of episode before it sucks you right in. Also like the wire it has the same realistic feel to it (although I don’t know if the creators are as familiar with the war in the dessert as they’re with the war on the streets).
IMDB users so far are rating the show an impressive 9.0 (compared to the wire 9.7), but suspect this might shoot up once the show catching main stream glory.
What’s your verdict so far? Please don’t post any spoilers as I’ve yet to watch the first seven episodes.
