I finally saw The Wire at the suggestion, (no urging), of my friend Aleem. I was also motivated by this article from The Onion.
To avoid being the fodder for other novelty newspapers, I went to Aleem's to watch the show on DVD. It was exactly what they said it would be: Abrasive, complex, intense, etc. While it was interesting to watch, and probably some of the best television I've seen in this strike-zone, I wasn't convinced.
Aleem will chalk it up to only seeing two episodes. Purists will say I shouldn't have watched it in a room with a bunch of people, including a few chatty ladies. But they way I see it? It's Hill Street Blues with more drugs, drinking and "fucks." Not bad by any stretch of the imagination, but I am going to need more convincing before I start bowing down at its feet like everyone else in the free world...at least those with HBO.
