If you've already seen these clips, it will be painful for you to watch. And,

I'm Sorry.

You see, if you haven't seen these already, you've got so much to look forward to. So many moments. And I am jealous. I envy the person who hasn't watched.

But if you have? You've already gone through the whole damn show and now it's over. Done. And these clips will only be a trigger for your Jones. Only stimulate the appetite.

The show is recognized for its realistic portrayal of urban life, artistic ambitions, and uncommonly deep exploration of sociological themes.
It's only five seasons. Some powered through the dvds. You can watch 4, maybe 5 episodes nonstop. They are almost an hour long. Fools. Don't power through. Take your time. The best would have been to watch it unfold, week after week. It's so good. You'll learn the song. Gotta keep the devil, way down in the hole. This is the best show of the now. Sure, there's been great shows. But each is tied to it's time. MASH, Next Generation, Seinfeld, Whatever, blah, blah, blah. Five long seasons, an hour each episode. It's a commitment. It's also better than anything you've seen. Better than anything on. Better than Lost, Weeds, Entourage, BSG, whatever you think is great, this is better. Better than all the copshows combined. It has it's slow times. But it recovers. So well written. Take your time, savour it, but please, watch it. People have thanked me. You will thank me.

Just wanted to say:
"You are right, it is the greatest show ever."
"Thankyou. I would not have watched this without your recommendo. I am now on disc 6 of season 1, and continuing."
