A few months back, a friend of mine posted in his blog a clip from the HBO TV series called The wire. That three minutes long clip hooked me up right away, and today I finished the last of the 60 hour-long episodes, spanning five seasons.

I recommend it to anyone that enjoys a good script, well developed characters, a director who doesn't treat his audience as five year olds, and good acting. Man, if a 10% of TV was this good, I might even consider buying a TV set!
