Where am I with The Wire?
It’s eight-thirty on Monday morning and I am currently On-Demanding (my verb) #55, the episode that officially airs on 2/3. I like the new season (final, btw) trick of preceding each episode with a warning of “Adult Content” and “Adult Language” – no more, no less. The subtle exclusion of “Violence” or “Graphic Violence” prevents viewers from becoming savvy to any important murders, which the season has been (predictably) full of. I won’t give anything away re: this episode, aside from saying that Dead Meadow make a cameo, a really silly Clay Davis “Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii……..” scene, more Steve Earle, and McNulty continues to piss me off. And I’ll say that things are moving fast.
