EPI and I finished watching Season 1 of The Wire this evening.
I’d had it on my to-watch agenda for about a year before then, but when everyone around here started watching it, I thought I’d better start watching it too.
Because I’m real susceptible like that.
Anyway, after about four episodes, we were like WTF?!? What is this shit?*
So I put a MAYDAY out on Twitter, all like: “Is it sposed to get better?”
The answer came back loud and clear: YES.
Four episodes later, we were irreversibly hooked.
I’ve now ordered the box set, thanks to a kind reader who offered to bring me a care package from the US.
How I’m going to hang on until he gets here is another matter entirely.
* Unbeknownst to me, we were already talking like The Wire gangstas. My dear blog friend Andrea told me: “It will change the way you talk.” SHE WAS RIGHT.
