    So, apparently Warner Bros isn't going to be releasing seasons 3 and 4 on region 4 at all. :evil:

    I bought the first two seasons with my Best Buy gift cards (I got one for Christmas and one when I bought my wife's iPod, plus my wife had a few old ones she didn't care to spend). Cost me $6 for both sets. I'll pick up seasons 3 and 4 online somewhere when my fantasy football money comes in. The show is just too good not to own. I can't wait to watch it all again with my wife.

    It's really frustrating trying to get your friends into this show because they aren't used to investing so much time into something. Now that I've got all the seasons, I think I'll try and force them to sit and watch the first 3 eps and they'll be hooked, haha.

    Yeah, I'll be forcing my wife to sit down and watch season one with me as soon as it's delivered to my house.

    That's not a prediction. We already know it.

    That would be horrible, but since the creators have had this in mind since its creation, it'll be in good hands. Plus, it's focusing on where they're best at, the journalism.

    They had the idea of doing a sixth season and bringing in the Mexican gangs, that's where it could've jumped, but they decided to stop it early, and move on to other projects.

    Brother Mouzone is the closest to jumping the shark. What an annoying character.


    Anyway, predictions:

    -Omar falls behind the game and eventually gets killed after nearly taking down Marlo's entire gang.

    -Bubbles finally goes straight, but also gets eaten up by the gang when he's exposed as a cop on the streets.

    -Michael becomes a pawn for Marlo, and falls into a few traps.

    -As a result of all this, a new gang emerges and takes West Baltimore. Perhaps a Mexican gang?

    good point. he's the only character that breaks the impressive realism whenever he shows up. it's like an urkel assassin.

    I dunno, I kind of see Bubs just finally OD'ing, unable to escape the cycle.

    That man has such immunity, he'd have to take the amount of drugs to kill 10 people just to get a buzz at this point.

    The first couple episodes have leaked already.

    I've watched the first one and it's just as great as ever. It takes place about a year after season 4.

    Major things happened in the first episode:

    I'm not watching the leaked episodes either. I don't want to wait 3 weeks for a new episode after starting a new season. That pisses me off with network shows, and it's one of the reasons I'm so willing to check out a series on HBO or Showtime.

    It's basically the second reason why I don't watch network television. The first being the quality of 90% of the shows being horrible.

    Rescue Me is one show that never has reruns, and almost feels like an HBO show.

    For those with HBO On Demand, the first episode is already there. Debating whether to watch it early or wait for HD.
