I started watching The Wire recently. It's one of the few shows that realistically portrays computer usage, so that's a plus.

Does it show real operating systems or fake ones?

Real ones. There's actually an entire episode where McNulty just looks into the camera and explains why UNIX isn't Linux for an hour.

Well, it does. It's a pretty slow paced show, but the payoffs are well worth it.

I've heard so much crap about The Wire. Is it really deserving of "greatest show of all time"?

I haven't even finished the first season yet, so I couldn't tell you. I do really like what I've seen so far, though.

The Wire is great.  A critic described it as being the funkiest cop show on television.

The great thing about the Wire is the complete lack of glamor in it.  You really feel like a heroin dealer in Baltimore when you are watching it.

Who else is binge-watching fucking Daredevil right now?  And if you're not, do so immediately.  It is awesome and kicks all kinds of ass.

I will get on that today as well.  I am currently watching Bloodlines which is also awesome.

I finally got around to seeing Interstellar and I have to say it was very good. I'm not sure how anyone completely hated this movie; especially considering I know quite a few people who did.

I couldn't devil's advocate criticize this movie even if I wanted to. The characters were good, the science was astute, the plot offered real problems the entire time other than manufactured nonsense and for the first time ever the AI robots didn't end up being evil assholes.

Yes, such astute science, like the magical space stations being conjured out of nowhere at the end of the movie and how being sucked into a black hole means you get to go on a whimsical journey through dimensions to see your loved ones.

Again, Saddam, Cooper's journey to Murph's room was not a natural phenomenon caused by the black hole. The tesseract is man-made.

I didn't hate it, but it's not exactly difficult to imagine why people would. It's basically just a massive exposition dump with plot progression being dictated by contrivances.

Like PP2000 said, love had nothing to do with it. It was a man-made construct. Also at the end, what do you mean the station came from nowhere? They showed that massive space station like thirty minutes into the movie, they couldn't get it into space without the equation that apparently allows you to ignore gravity.

It's basically just a massive exposition dump with plot progression being dictated by contrivances.

You just described every movie ever created.
