Talking About The Wire


Despite what you may have read in the voluminous commentaries on other web sites, this season of The Wire is as awesome as every other season. Various journalist-types have spent a lot of time griping about the unrealistic newspaper scenes, but as someone with no more first-hand knowledge of a newsroom than a police department, I find them very interesting.

This is the first time I’ve watched the show weekly instead of in giant DVD-sized binges, so it’s been a different experience. But what’s really annoying me is HBO’s weird schedule. The new episodes are available on HBO On Demand 6 days before it is “broadcast” on Sunday night and everyone who reviews the show waits until the show is “broadcast” before they discuss it. Isn’t that just a weird fiction? Is there anyone who has HBO who doesn’t have HBO On Demand or who waits until Sunday to watch the show when they could have watched it 6 days earlier? I can tell you who’s not waiting: this guy. And “next week’s” episode was great.

It’s just like renting the DVDs, only not at all

I can’t imagine this would be helpful, but I’m posting it anyway.

Does that mean I’m falling down on the blogging job?  Perhaps.  Does it mean I don’t love you?  Of course not.

Anyway, remember that 7-minute edited version of The Sopranos that was allegedly made by die-hard fans, but was actually just made as a promotional piece?  Well, they’ve done it for The Wire.

Here ya go. [kml_flashembed movie="" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" /]
