    OK. And I guess my response was too strong, sorry. Bad day, back killing me at work, but still that's not a good excuse.

    But don't you think, in light of the post I was linking to, my posting it for the second time was somehow appropriate?

    Look, we all do things we think makes us feel better at the time but doesn't later. I usually don't care if someone smeeks. I just happened to see it and thought I would point it out. No intent of malice. It just was something to do. I had read the article (and yes, it is very good) and thought I would point out that someone showed it to me already. I will now think more before doings so. I think it is usually done in fun (as i was doing) and not to hurt any one. Just folks sitting around talking and ribbing each other. But somedays its the wrong day to be ribbed.

    Sorry dude.

    edit: PS. lets have drink on it next time I'm in the city.

    I was going to post what a revelation simon's article in huffingtonpost was, but then I realized in actuality, I'm merely an idiot. The specials that aired before this season directly stated that as a theme. I simply forgot to connect the dots while watching. I did notice the lack of coverage of Prop Joe and other stories, though.

    You shouldn't have to think about pointing out a bad smeek such as mine, it's just that I thought it was a rolleyes which I consider an insult. But it wasn't meant as a rolleyes and even if it were my response to it was too much, sorry.

    You're on for that drink. Also the next time I'm in Baltimore. Oh wait, other than going to work I hardly ever make it out of the apartment, much less the state.

    Just started re-watching The Wire. I remember it took me a few eps to get into it the first time, this time it took me about two minutes. It's been some 10 yrs since I've seen it and I've only seen it once so this is going to be a treat. Without doubt one of the greatest tv series of all time and certainly one of the pioneer series that launched the new "golden age" of tv. Every episode is like watching a gritty, realistic, great film and they do it episode after episode. It's funny, moving, harrowing; the breadth and complexity of the story is just remarkable and every single character in an enormous cast is acted believably and to utter perfection. It really demonstrated why and how television could do things with story and character that film and stage drama could never even approach. Not only a masterpiece but a unique masterpiece, unlike anything that had ever gone before it in the entire history of drama.

    So amazing, and love how each season focuses on different aspects of the city

    I've watched it three times and I think I enjoyed it more each season!

    Nice bump.

    I'm bummed I didn't take advantage while it was still on Amazon Prime to have my wife binge it with me. She no longer likes "dark" subject matter but this one is so good I think she'd make an exception - she's been "Wire-curious" for years just from what she's heard.
