We've been watching The Wire and one thing I've noticed is that stakes don't change much season to season. The goals of each character and group can shift, but there's not a lot of escalation. It's about The System™ and how different parts of it play out over time. Refreshing coming from shows that feel like they have to up the ante every season (breaking bad, game of thrones, et al).
