Even if What We Do is Wrong.............

Peace Fam,

Fayette Crew 4Evea......

I was excited and depressed that one of my favorite shows on TV has come to it's season end. The Wire. Yes I am one of many that they called the "wired" a die-hard fan. I have been following this show since the beginning. The writing on this show is excellent. The depth of the characters and the details of the stories make this more than "cop vs crooks" drama on the tube. They really done a great job on who they cast for the roles. I am sure you have heard some of these comments over, and over on certain blogs, reviews etc.

However I am glad to announce that they will be back next season (5). See the article below. And I can not wait!!! Maybe they should even think about a movie, however 2 hours would still not be enough!


The Wire Renewed for Fifth Season
The beloved HBO series will return for a fifth and final year.
by Eric Goldman

September 13, 2006 - In very happy news, HBO has announced that The Wire has been renewed for a fifth season. To call the Baltimore set dramatic series "critically acclaimed" at this point is an understatement, as it has received nearly universal kudos, with many calling it not only one of the best television series currently on the air, but one of the best television series ever.Unfortunately, these amazing reviews haven't translated into a large audience and this past Sunday's premiere of season 4 garnered only lukewarm ratings for the show. However, Wire creator David Simon had said he intended the series to be told in five seasons, and the extremely loyal fanbase (including those of us at IGN) were very hopeful that HBO would allow for the series to get the proper conclusion it deserved. Previous seasons of The Wire have shifted the focus from the lives of drug dealers to the working class to politicians, with the current season focusing on education, and the kids and teachers living in a drug and crime filled area. Simon has hinted the final season will take a look at media, and in the press release announcing season 5, seems to imply a self-aware concept for the final season: "The last question we want to ask is this: For four seasons, we have depicted that part of urban America that has been left behind by the economy and by the greater society, and chronicled entrenched problems that have gone without solution for generations now. Why? What is it that we see and sense about these problems? To what are we giving attention, and what is it that we consistently ignore? How do we actually see ourselves?"
