The Wire’s Three-Year-Forgotten Dick

Why is everybody—all of a sudden—cock-chugging HBO’s Baltimore-set series “The Wire”?

Jason Kottke has—at the time of this writing—eleven “The Wire”-related webpages linked from his site’s main page (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11).

Is the show good enough to warrant all this attention? Absolutely.

My question is: What the fuck took everyone so long?

I’m happy that it’s garnering the attention that it’s deserved (in my humble opinion) since its inception; that’ll ensure that it’s re-upped for season five. And, I’m not going all sour grapes on this… but why did it take three years for people to realize that “The Wire” is one of the best shows ever?

I dunno… I just find it hard to respect the opinions of those late-to-the-party arm-chair-TV-quarterbacks who have to find something interesting to watch before the season premier of “Huge Imaginary Mind Fuck” “Lost”.
