Download the "The Wire" bible. Early conceptual drafts of what, who, where, and when. Fun reading by David Simon.

Instead of wishing that there was more of The Wire, these days I just lament that there aren't more shows as good as The Wire.

I wanted Omar to raise Stringer from the dead and for those two to become lovers, but we get what we need, not what we want.

So... I'm reading David Simon & Ed Burns' book The Corner, and I stumbled upon a small passage that may give some insight as to why The Wire's theme song is "Way Down in the Hole." From pgs. 38-93:

...In Baltimore, anyone can sell anywhere, so long as there are fiends willing to pay. Now, a drug corner is all about product and name recognition.

"Got orange tops."

"Big Whites. Big white bags."

"Reds. Red tops. Reds make you sparkle. Red tops."

And, as always, "In the Hole."

Black Beauty, a dark-skinned tout know for her hard look, is busy touting today for that crew, which sells heroin under a brand name that has its origin in local geography. Perfectly isolated, the back alley that runs between Mount and Vincent on the south side of Fayette has long been known as the Hole. In service of that brand, Black Beauty walks a tight circle on Mount Street, barking in mindless repetition, like a mating bird left lonesome in the spring.

"In the Hole. In the Hole. In the Hole."

Even just reading this thread brings a smile to my face.

I've seen most of season 1 3 times through, just waiting for my roommate to finish the Finale of Season 1 so I can get to season 2 again. The rest of the series I've only seen once.

I cannot wait til he gets there. Season 2 is this shit.

I was talking yesterday with my friend Stephen, who is the Midwest Region President of Sigma Tau Delta (the international honor society for students of English/Literature) and the two of us are going to organize and present a panel of scholarship on The Wire at next year's Sigma Tau Delta international convention.

Are you going to focus on one theme of the Wire, or just the overall show itself?

I doubt that the panel will be super-focused on one aspect of the show , though individual papers can certainly be. We just formed the idea yesterday, and neither of us have the papers that we plan to anchor the panel with written yet.

Yes. Depending on how many English classes you've taken you may meet your chapter's qualifications already. Someone on UNI's English faculty will be the chapter sponsor.

If you have a spare half-hour, read this new, long interview with David Simon that's all about The Wire: http://www.viceland.com/int/v16n12/h...-simon-280.php

You mean you wish you weren't busy and had an extra $2500 to drop on meeting the cast of The Wire?

So, I just finished this series. Great stuff.

I still am a bit confused as to what makes Season 4 the "best," though. I've heard that from several people. Maybe it just resonates with them more personally.

Depends on who you ask.

Generally people will choose season 1 or 4.

4 was just amazing because you got to see where the whole street lifestyle begins, with kids. They have to live through shit and it explains why they are as hard as they are when they grow up.

That and the whole mayoral election.
