Get on The Wire


Where did the month of July go? I was abducted by The Wire, the best television show ever. 60 episodes and 5 seasons of amazing writing and acting that maintains its quality without falter is pretty unheard of. Virtually unknown actors, an aspect I love, play a myriad of characters, all of whom are interesting and flawed. Their lives and jobs intertwine in the city of Baltimore, where the creators of the show, an ex-cop and ex-journalist, have dealt firsthand with the intricacies of the problems in urban institutions.
