The Wire

This blog will pretty much be an extension of my obsession for David Simon's "The Wire." I hope to look at the themes it brings up, analyze it on the level of great film, and generally be a sounding board for some of the criticism that is already out on the internet.

My thoughts on the show will come at a later date, but for now enjoy Sudhir Venkatesh's interviews/sessions with actual drug traffickers and what they think about The Wire. Start with The First Episode and move through to the current one.

Here's a quick link to actual Baltimore Crime as well.

That's all for now, but stay tuned as I unleash many more links/info on the "best television show in history."
