Just wanted to remind you that The Wire - by far the best police crime drama of all time this side of the Commish - begins its fifth and final season this Sunday at 9pm.
Not having seen the show before and/or not having HBO are ridiculous excuses. If needed, may we recommend you get premium cable for two months and then cancel it, and maybe during this time you purchase four fewer grande skim lattes with cinnamon and low foam. Also know that Mel's husband from Flight of the Conchords plays a writer for the Baltimore Sun, so.
HBO says this season "will center on the media's role in addressing - or failing to address - the fundamental political, economic and social realities depicted over the course of the series, while also resolving storylines of the numerous characters woven throughout the narrative arc of the show." As the material digs deeper into the Baltimore media scene over ten episodes, we can only hope Butter Team's high-integrity staff will escape the mudslinging.
Hey world, check out how silly and disfunctional Baltimore is (Season 5 Trailer):
