Ode to the Wire

In Uncategorized on July 24, 2008 at 9:36 pm

In a land where television is often directed to the lowest common denominator, I miss The Wire. Ok, I just said that for street cred. I actually never caught it when it was on TV but I’m consuming the DVDs like a thirsty man in the desert. I have to say that the season 4 opening is the most layered, insightful start to a season that I’ve ever seen. I feel like I’m loving Greta Garbo a few decades past the prime, knowing that there is an end and wanting to see every moment but not wanting to read the epitaph.

(and since YouTube (GOOGLE) is doing some Evil these days, copyrights be damned)

  1. The Wire is the best thing to ever be shown on television not to win an Emmy. It’s Shakespere for the Street.
