Great question! I think it plays into it in SOME degree, but not enough to sway a preference for one over the other. I grew up in MA (but in the Burbs) but I will say I can see relating more to a typical East Coast city vs Cali due to that. To a lesser degree but similar, Sons of Anarchy

What's funny, I heard all the "Wire is the best show EVER" a LOT before watching it, and it still topped it. I then told my Wife I thought it was the best show ever and really built it up. Then we watched it together and she said the same thing!

The fourth season of The Wire is the greatest tv show season in the history of tv.

The Wire is the only tv show I've watched where the characters act and behave like real people. The situations are real. While I love them, I had to buy into the universes of The Shield, Breaking Bad, The Sopranos in order to believe them. They're great works of fiction but they seem like fiction. The Wire feels like real life.

Savoir-Faire is everywhere!
