Watching The Wire

I'm starting a marathon of watching The Wire from the beginning - never really done it and always meant to.

Gripping, dark, urban post-noir

Great writing - more later

Amazon seems terribly slow today - not good, the weekend before Thanksgiving

David Simon on the commentary,

...story about the American city, and how we live we are all compromised by the institutions we belong to

It's a story of the excluded, and marginalized in society. The cops and the FBI in the Wire are far smarter than their counterparts in the Sopranos. The layered stories should develop pretty well - lots more to sift through and digest
