Beyond Non Sequitur

the_wire.jpgI just finished watching Season 5, the final season of The Wire. And as much as I’d love to write something about baseball right now, I don’t think it’s even possible. Sure, I could try to come up with some sort of analogy comparing the pennant chase with the myriad of chases interlaced into the fabric of this HBO series. Or I could compare the probable playoff teams to various characters in the show and pit them against each other in a fight to the death and thereby once again (correctly) tell you who will win the World Series.

Honestly, I’m just speechless right now. It’s not that the final episode was the best one I’ve ever seen because it wasn’t. But the series as a whole, well, there isn’t much that can compare to it. So, even though it’s Friday, even though I’ve been MIA and even though this is a blog about baseball and politics, that’s all I got. Except, doesn’t McNulty remind you a little bit of the Yankees……?

Happy Friday. And go watch The Wire.

    This is the third time this week I’ve heard someone rave about this show…I think the Cable Gods are trying to tell me something. Hopefully my lame Blockbuster will have the Season One DVDs in stock this weekend and I can check it out.

    I’ll chime in here and say that this is actually something Al and I agree on 100%. I’ll just add this little warning: TV will never be the same for you ever, ever again.
