The Wire - best tv show ever.  As one of my TV snob friends said back in the day, "If you have HBO and you're not watching The Wire, you're just foolish."

The Wire. The best show ever on TV. And as a former newspaperman, teacher, and current DC blogger, i am glad that it came from the minds of David Simon (ex-journalist with a great 1st name), Ed Burns (ex-cop turned teacher), George Pelecanos (DC writer), and writer Richard Price (great last name).

There are many, many things I love about The Wire (not for nothing have so many critics called it the best show on television), but Michael Kenneth Williams takes the cake. Anyone who can top Idris Elba AND Dominic West in my book must really have some charisma.
