The Wire makes topic at Law and Society Conference?

I stumbled upon an interesting blog post about law professors that argue that shows like the Wire are bringing the justice system out of the shadows. Apparently they organised a panel conversation on the topic, with the show’s creator, David Simon attending.

When a show can have this impact, it surely deserves the title of “greatest show ever made”.

The Wire – Where are they now?

The Telegraph has an interesting article on the Wire cast and what they are up to now that the show has finished.

Last time i spotted my personal favourite “McNulty” was in Frank Millers 300.

With the announcement that BBC2 is going to air all five seasons of The Wire, everyone is quick to jump on the bandwagon and tell their praise. The show is scheduled for 1120pm, and will be on every night for the next 12 weeks.

The Wire, The End, The City – Cheers!

Five season of the Wire is gone. It’s been one hell of a ride. Big ups and downs.

Have to say that I thought the ending was pretty damn perfect. A little bit sentimental, but not over the top. And even if the show came to and end, the city and streets continue to live its life…

Cheers to you McNulty, Bunk, Daniels, Rhonda, Kima, Herc, Ellis, Lester, Bubbles, Omar, Prez, Burrell, Bodie, Avon, Stringer, Carcetti, Marlo, Chris, Bunny, Cutty, Poot, Snoop, Prop Joe, Duke, Clay Davis, Wee-Bey, D’Angelo, Clarence, Valchek, Monk, Shamrock, Fitz, Sobotka, Gus, Scott, The Greek, Butchie, O-Dog, and the rest of you!

One of my favourite scenes, when McNulty gets profiled 🙂 Pure genious!

What’s your favourite The Wire moments, from any season?
