I'd argue that if you aren't enjoying it at this point maybe it isn't for you. In my eyes all the seasons are fairly equal. In fact, a lot of people consider season 2 the best one. The last one is perhaps a tiny bit weaker for me.

The Wire would be the best TV show ever if not for Twin Peaks: The Return. The sheer scope of the ideas of the show will never cease to astound me.

Yeah agreed season two is great. Completely flips the setting from the first season and the characters. What’s not to like!

Again sopranos is equally as good although I find anyone I recommend it too these days finds it dated to watch. I think I’ve seen it about 7 or 8 times all the way through. Never gets old for me.

Sky store I believe.

Actually just finished a rewatch, it's excellent but it's the character attachment rather than plot intrigue that takes it to the level of the wire. I think Wire is more consistent and entertaining overall.

Sopranos is the best for me.

A left field runner up is Braquo though, a French cop show.
You need to be OK with subtitles but it's a fucking great show. Also the first episode is a very good indicator, there are better episodes but if you don't like the first one you can give up straight away.

This is good, just 90mins, about that silicon valley startup to test blood which seemed too good to be true. Genuine psychopath / cult-like figure.

great podcast on that - https://abcnews.go.com/Business/nightline-documentary-podcast-dropout-story-elizabeth-holmes-theranos/story?id=60365362

it is absolutely crazy how she got away with it for so long. also remarkable that investors didn't notice the warning signs (no healthcare/biotech specific VCs/funds invested in theranos as the science just wasnt there)

Been out a while but Shane Meadow's The Virtues is some of the best TV I've seen in ages. Heavy though.

Chernobyl
(Late to the part I know….)
Wow…still cant get the survivors from episode 3 out my heed. That was a truly horrific episode of what will go down as a stone cold classic of a TV show.
