The wire

I got myself a copy of the second season of The Wire for christmas and wound up watching it Friday night. It really is damn good, at 3 AM I was 3 disks into the 5 set, tired and wanting to go to bed but I just couldn't resist finishing it (and fucking my sleep schedule to hell).

It's all about the end of working docks and more about the misery of poverty that begets crime and drugs and the assorted malaise of the city. I loved how it showed how complicated and interconnected it all is, setting up self-perpetuating vicious cycles that grinds down everyone who doesn't get out.

The Wire really is the best television series I have ever watched. If you've never seen it you really ought to give it a shot.
