The Wire

January 30, 2008

I know everyone and his uncle has been going on about the greatness of The Wire, and they’d be absolutely correct. I’ve just finished watching season 2, and it just keeps getting better and better- more complex, more nuanced, more emotionally engaging, and more funny (incidentally, the humour is not something many commentators seem to have picked up on). The addition of the docks and union politics to the interplay of cops, drug dealers and city hall has created a whole new series of interconnections and facets that will no doubt be elaborated on in the next season, to which I am greatly looking forward.

Here are some links to interesting Wire things on the internet:
