Blatantly jumping on the opportunity to create yet another thread on The Wire
, I'd like to remind you that starting tonight
, BBC 2 will air the entire series start to finish, an episode every weekday. First episode starts in a moment, at 11:20 PM UK time. Watch!
I've you've never heard of the show before, here's a good write-up
by Charlie Brooker, who also made a nice TV special
on the show. We've discussed the series quite a bit around here
and on the Green
The final season wrapped up last year in the States, and while it never reached very large TV audiences it gained a rabidly evangelic cult following. Moreover, it seems to have been almost universally liked by the Metafilter contingent, which is definitely a rarity.
In any case, this should be a brilliant opportunity for those in the British Isles and elsewhere in Europe to catch up, so good luck and have fun.
