Way down in the hole

After weeks of dedicated viewing, Chris and I finished The Wire last night. The HBO gem, considered by many (present company included) to be the best series in television history, is truly a masterpiece. This was my second go ’round with The Wire, and there were so many nuances ย and details — knowing looks, offhand comments, unexpected connections — that I caught this time that were lost on me before. It’s always bittersweet to say goodbye to a piece of entertainment that transcends television to become art, but I’ve done it before (The Sopranos, Lost, The Cosby Show, Sex and the City) and I’ll do it again (Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The Simpsons). So, farewell Avon and Bunk and Lester and Michael and Snoop — for now, but not forever. Will we meet again? Oh, indeed.xxAT
