i have worked in, and or traveled through, all of the parts of the city that are depicted in the show, and that is 100% authentic to baltimore city. now, not all of baltimore city is like that. there are actually some very nice parts of the city here and there. but the areas that are ghetto, yup, they are exactly as shitty as they make it look.
not only that, they do an excellent job depicting and portraying all of the distinct and varying baltimore dialects, characters and attitudes across all the different social segments i have seen them portray in the show thus far.
it is very honest and true to real baltimore city life.
its also a great show.
