Addicted to The Wire


I finished the eighth episode of Season One of The Wire late last night.  I've been working through this series since I picked up all 60 episodes from Andrew last week.

This show is so compelling, so wonderfully written and so brilliantly paced that I simply can't get enough.  Like the drugs portrayed on the screen, I just want my next hit.  It's sort of the best of The Sopranos blended with the best of Homicide: Life on the Street.  Every word has weight, so you're forced to pay very close attention.  I'm addicted.

I'll write a review after I wrap up each season.  If it wasn't for work, sleep and these damn kids, I'd have the whole series done by next weekend.
