Mini Television Review: "The Wire"

After, no lie, YEARS of nagging from my television-snob brother, BW to watch The Wire, I finally gave in and watched the first three episodes.

And to my completely non-existent surprise, it's really good. BW's been extolling the show's virtues for years and it gets nonstop glowing reviews from critics. It's well-acted and written and the dialogue really pops. I LOVE good, salty, rude dialogue and this show totally has it. Any form of entertainment that can teach me to curse in a new way is ok by me!

So, if you've been curious about The Wire, you might want to check it out. It's good stuff.

Also? If you enjoy hot, charismatic, FICTIONAL drug dealers, Stringer Bell is the guy for you. DAMN.
