    Any fans?

    A few months ago someone was going on about it, i watched half of the first episode of first season thought this is crap then stopped watch it.

    Few months down the line i started last week watching it, now im on 3rd season.

    Its an amazing show, was wondering if anyones watching it on BBC or anything.

    You can't download from iPlayer as far as I know. It downloads to the viewer and automatically deletes after a set time. All you can do is watch it. I guess you could capture it, but you can with any online video with the right equipment.

    Plus, it's 7 years old now, can't see any harm in people watching it on iPlayer really.

    They all on Torrentz.

    Watched it all Dled few months back after ppl who had seen were pestering me to do so.

    Best TV show ever made, foshomofo.

    Fave chars Omar, Bugs (or Bubbles never remember what his name is), then McNulty's pretty good and the lady cop also, (in later series), oh, and Snoop (you know she's a real life convicted killer & ex-gangsta?).

    I saw half of an episode and it was sick.

    I can't be fucked watching them all on the web, can I get a box set anywhere?

    It's an absolute masterpiece. And once you've finished watched every season, you should start watching them all again, because there's so much depth in the writing that you'll pick up lots of new things you didn't the first time.
