We've now watched the first two series of The Wire. I really do think it's every bit as good as so many people seem to say it is. However, no-one who I mention any of this to wants to know. They're way ahead of me. By the time we're up to date - mid September, I reckon, I can join in. Until then, observations on McNulty's Pogues soundtrack, the depth of Omar and the Shakespearean tragedy of Frank Sobotka will have to stay at home.
I like too the fact hardly anyone I know has actually watched it on TV, because it's on a channel called FX. Catching up, catching up.
Massive hat tip: Taguey.
