Series Review of The Wire

the_wire

The new episode of /Film’s podcast is a three hour long discussion about The Wire, the greatest show in American history. /Film’s Dave, Devindra, and Adam reflect with television critics Alan Sepinwall and Myles McNutt (what a crazy name) pick apart every season of the show, it’s themes, messages, and storytelling. I got into The Wire pretty late in the game, but once I finished the fifth and final season, I knew that television had now been ruined for me. No show will ever come close to The Wire‘s level of characterization, emotion, and aim. Check, please.

The breadth and ambition of “The Wire” are unrivaled and that taken cumulatively over the course of a season — any season — it’s an astonishing display of writing, acting and storytelling that must be considered alongside the best literature and filmmaking in the modern era. – Tim Goodman, critic – San Francisco Chronicle

They discuss this famous scene during the podcast, which sums up the entire series.
