About a month ago, Swain and I plowed through all five seasons of HBO's The Wire. Disc by disc.
"What took you guys so long?!"
I hear you yelling. But I think I speak for both of us when I say that we had reservations regarding the nigh-universal and perpetual acclaim that the series garners. Could it live up to the hype? Five seasons later — yes!
From some of The Wire's most memorable characters (Jimmy McNulty, Omar Little, Stringer Bell, Snoop), to the behind the scenes production, to our favorite quotes; Swain and I delve fully into the world of West Baltimore.
And again, if you have not seen the show and plan to, I highly recommend you save these episodes until after you do (trust).
Like the epic scope of the series itself, we'll deliver our conversation to you guys in two parts. In other words, we're dropping off "that good package". So step on it and get your fix.
