Fantastic The Wire related news!
A new series on the way…
If you haven’t seen it, you’re probably bored out of your mind of hearing insane enthusiasts going on and on about The Wire. So we won’t say too much, except that it is by far the greatest television show ever made. If you have seen it, find out who our favourite characters are here, and read about each season in order of preference here. Great show. The brilliant news is that David Simon – the bulbous throbbing mind behind the whole thing – has written another show for HBO, called Treme, which chronicles the problems facing the people of New Orleans after that awful hurricane ripped the city to shreds a few years ago. The word on the street is that the story revolves around a group of jazz musicians, two of whom may or may not be Bunk and Lester (pictured) from The Wire. Since hearing the news, we’ve been jumping up and down clapping our hands like David from Big Brother at a Vivienne Westwood gig.
You heard it here first. Or, like, twelfth.
