sorta off topic but any fans of David Simon's other work?
The Corner is a pretty good precursor to The Wire, not quite as complex but that same gritty Bmore street vibe.
I loved Generation Kill, its only 7 episodes but Ive retwatched it a few times and I think it might be better than any Iraq war movie, and Ziggy from The Wire is it, still playing a goof but a more likable one.
only watched S1 of Treme and I loved Bunks role and the music is fantastic but too many irritating characters put me off checking it out further.

"this sentimental motherfucker just cost us money"
one of my fave moments of the last season.
