Women Who Watch The Wire
Yeah, another one of those weird picks by me.  If you couldn’t tell by this post, I love, I’m obsessed with the Wire.  The greatest television show that’s ever been made.  By the way, that last sentence was not an opinion.  And whenever I hear that a woman likes the Wire as well, I instantly perk up.  Because not only does it show she has taste, but it makes me feel that perhaps in some amazingly perfect world, we could spend hours together in bed watching and talking about the Wire.  Something that I would love to do with my significant other.  The two of us naked, intertwined basking in the warmth and love of one another, accompanied by David Simon’s gritty take on the American war on drugs.  Sounds like the perfect love story to me..

Yo, hoppers, this Wire Everywhere update comes to us from the good folks at CollegeHumor who show just how amazing the Wire could be as an old school RPG game.  This video is a MUST see for anyone who (like me) loves the Wire and Video Games.  

Only gripe I had is their blatant diss of Season 2; something far too many people do.  Nonetheless, check it out!

And all the pieces matter…

Infographic: Seasons by quality.

Pretty much my thoughts exactly (and the reason I stopped watching The Simpsons/The Office/Entourage) except for the last 2.

I feel like Arrested Development actually gets more rewarding to the viewer as the series progresses. As season 3 is the jam packed with callbacks. Something the series’ humor heavily relies on already.

As for LOST, I feel that people give the final season a bad rep because they “didn’t answer everything”. But what people really mean when they say that is “They didn’t answer everything with an answer that I like, and it wasn’t wrapped up in a cute pink bow, labeled: ANSWER”. Half the fun of LOST (while it was on the air) was puzzling everything together, so I’m glad there are things left dangling at the end for the viewer to intemperate as they will. And it’s not very hard to take what they actually did give us, and come up with a logical answer/conclusion for it (where did the polar bears come from).

I pretty much agree with all these graphs, only thing I would change is lowering LOST and Dexter across the board a tad.  Cause I feel both are overrated.

Yo, hoppers if you got $500 to blow (and you should if you been slangin’ properly), then you should check out President Barack Obama’s Wire-themed bash he’s throwing on August 15th.  Now if you’ll excuse me, I gotta go rent a tux, can’t show up looking like Omar in Court.

Yo, hoppers, this Wire Everywhere update comes to us from Funny or Die where they do a spoof of The Wire as a musical.  And after watching this, I’m pretty sure I’d see this in real life.  Check it out, and don’t get captured.

Game of Thrones writer Bryan Cogman reacts to Salman Rushdie’s assessment of television drama.

"Oh, I would decriminalize drugs in a heartbeat. I would put all the interdiction money, all the incarceration money, all the enforcement money, all of the pretrial, all the prep, all of that cash, I would hurl it as fast as I could into drug treatment and job training and jobs programs. I would rather turn these neighborhoods inward with jobs programs. Even if it was the urban equivalent of FDR’s CCC—the Civilian Conservation Corps—if it was New Deal–type logic, it would be doing less damage than creating a war syndrome. The drug war is war on the underclass now. That’s all it is. It has no other meaning."
