Wire Creator David Simon Says He'll Do Another Season When Drug Policy Is Altered image
It'll be a cold day in hell before we see any more episodes of The Wire, but in the long run, that's probably better. Best to let something brilliant end in dramatic fashion rather than continue for one more go around past its prime

The U.S. Attorney General Wants Another Season Of The Wire image
Talk about fans in high places. HBO's The Wire, created by Ed Burns and David Simon, has received no end of praise over the years, often being held up as an example of the heights serialized TV storytelling can reach. And like any show that has wrapped up its run, there have been plenty of calls for its return. None of those requests, however, have come from the Attorney General of the United States of America. Until now, that is.

TV Recap: The Wire - The Dickensian Aspect image
The bullshit McNulty was selling — and everyone was buying — last week only served to spit shine Mayor Carcetti's image with the press this week. Thanks to McNulty and Freamon's bogus serial killer, Carcetti got the chance to act like a leader with a cause.

TV Recap: The Wire - React Quotes image
This ep had me asking myself ... Who’s worse? McNulty or Templeton? The two biggest b.s. artists on The Wire formed an unofficial alliance that finally got McNulty's bogus serial killer a front page headline and Templeton a so-called story with legs.

TV Recap: The Wire - Transitions image
Omar's back and Prop. Joe's dead. Cold-blooded Marlo is making big, bloody waves, and with the backing of the Greeks and an unflinching crew, it looks he might rule the streets by the time The Wire shuts down for business. Still, it's hard to shake the feeling that Omar might get the chance to aim that sawed-off shotgun at his skinny rival's head.

TV Recap: The Wire - Uncomfirmed Reports image
McNulty's drinking all day, staying out all night, screwing around on Beadie and strangling dead bodies. Still, who can blame him? City Hall pulls the plug on the Marlo investigation and more bodies start to pile up. The FBI refuses to bankroll the case and it looks like a year's worth of intel on Marlo's deadly crew will go to waste.

TV Recap: The Wire - More With Less image
The Wire has always focused on Baltimore's crooks and cops, giving both equal screen time, but most seasons add a new setting (the port, city hall, the classroom) that is directly affected by the action on the streets. With the first ep of the fifth and final season, Simon, who scripted the ep, begins to draw parallels between the Baltimore Police Department's overall downslide and that of The Baltimore Sun newsroom.

2008 Winter TV Preview: The Wire image
Everything I’ve ever heard or read about The Wire has been good. People who like this show rave about it incessantly. I’m sure it deserves at least some of the hype it’s gotten but for whatever reason, I just haven’t gotten around to watching it. I am kind of curious to see if the show really is as good as people say it is.
