I'm on episode 5, everyone tells me to push on push on. Its nothing but talking :\ I'm afraid the show just isn't for me and don't want to waste anymore of my time, but everyone says to keep at it. Anyone else feel/felt this way?

I tried it as well. It's basically the God of shows mentioned on this board the the Broadcast board, and since I've enjoyed the majority of shows recommended here, I was really looking forward to it when I bought season 1. After 6 or so episodes.. I couldn't take it. I found none of the characters likable, I found the dialogue horrendous (literally EVERY character says either s*** or f*** constantly, not to mention the incomprehensible slang; it's unrealistic- not every human living in Baltimore talks like this), I thought the story line (what little there was) was boring, the stupid nicknames forced on almost every character felt contrived, and in the first time every watching a show in the middle of the day.. I nodded off. And no one can use the, "u jus dunt leik slo movin shos!" argument, since shows like Mad Men and Six Feet Under are some of my favorites.
I won't criticize anyone who loves it, and I openly admit I've only seen basically half of the first season, but I honestly don't see where the hype comes from. Maybe I'll try again at a later date, but I feel no incentive right now.
Goodbye Chewy. You were the best friend I could ask for. Rest in peace, buddy.
It took me a surprisingly long amount of time, but I ended up loving The Wire. Had the same problem as TC and Crono during season 1 but season 2 got better. When season 3 started stepping up, I was loving it.
