Advertisements I have had the entire fourth season of the The Wire saved on my TiVo because I hadn't finished watching season 3 when it originally aired. My wife and I just finished watching the second to last episode last night and we just can't believe how good this whole season has been. Work is going very slowly today because I can't wait to get home and watch the finale. I have been reading articles about how this show was robbed when it wasn't even nominated for the best drama Emmy. What is it about the nomination process that failed in getting this show nominated? Has there been any word on a 5th season?
