Have you seen this television series? You probably have. After all the first season, which I have just finished watching, was made in 2002. I am often way behind. If you haven’t seen it you really must. The Wire is awesome. Generally speaking I’m not into cop drama. I don’t watch them on the tele – which now explains why I probably missed this one – I’ve never seen an episode of NCIS Whoop Whoop, or Cold Case or Law and Order … it’s not my kind of thing. For a while there I would watch hospital dramas but after constant hysteria that I was suffering from one exotic disease or another my partner prescribed switching the television off and subsequently my health made a miraculous recovery.
It’s not just me that says that The Wire is brilliant. Barrack Obama was quoted in 2008 as saying that it was his favourite television show too. I borrowed the first season from the local library … maybe your library has it too? Go check it out – and then tell me what you think.
