on the down-low


Thanks in large part to Peter, mine and Brian's addiction to The Wire has been steadily growing to the point of dependency. Just like the show's many drug dealers, we now arrange covert meetings to surreptitiously swap discs of the show. Taking this photo, I felt like one of the detectives snapping shots as evidence of the drug deals. Oh television, and how you bring excitement into the most mundane aspects of my life.

Oh snap! Oh, and you were also a major factor that led to our addiction. Brian kept telling me, "DeWaard says it's a wicked show, we should start watching it."

Thanks!

Is it as good as Dexter?

Dallas said...

It's very, very different. The only similarity would be the police force. It takes a while (about 6 episodes or so) to get into the flow of the show, but once you're hooked, you're hooked.

We watched this in my "Diversity and the Law" seminar as part of a test - he showed us an episode and made us base our essay question on the racial dynamics portrayed in the show. My prof loves television.

i think a box of honey nut should be a bartering chip in this transaction.
