  1. What an interesting article concerning the serial nature of ‘The Wire’. I was researching some of the decades’ past tv series attempting to create a ‘best of’ list and while looking up some scholarly articles concerning the show, came upon your own. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    While I disagree with your outcome, your well-structured arguments are making me really think about how well David Simon succeeded in his goal.

    No matter – the fact that we’re merely discussing the show as something other than just TV means he at least succeeded in creating a series worth thinking about in a scholarly fashion.

    I look forward to following your blog now. Keep up the awesome work.
