It's "The Wire" Wednesday!

"From start to finish, The Wire has been one of the best series ever produced for American television, one in which the commitment to honesty and authenticity has never wavered. Despite that quality, its subject matter — nothing less than the failure of the world's most powerful nation to solve the fundamental problems of its urban centers — was never likely to pull in a mass, casual audience."

Too few were plugged in, but HBO's 'The Wire' was electric, USA Today

Also, here's two good podcasts to check out.

- Interview with David Simon

- Bill Simmons (ugh) & Jason Whitlock (yes) talk about "The Wire" for 55 minutes.
