I recently re-watched most of this great series that ran for 5 seasons on HBO. This series is one of the most stark and brutal shows ever presented on television. It spotlights the drug scene in Baltimore, Maryland. Here is my comprehensive review and the plot summary.

  • “N*gg*r
  • “Bitch”
  • “Faggot”
  • “Ho”
  • “Dog”
  • “Yo”
  • “It’s all in the game”
  • “BLAM!”
Corpse Count: 87, mostly head shots
