I just discovered this discussion of Season 5 of The Wire on Slate a few moments ago between David Plotz and Jeffrey Goldberg. As you may remember, I love The Wire. I only read the first 3 segments of this discussion and it makes me want to purchase the Boxset and watch it again right now.
I think this is a good plan anyhow. The first time through, I watched it as some guy looking for entertainment. I would love to watch it again, try to pick up on some of the subtleties I missed, and pretend I know what the hell I’m talking about in regards to the philosophical aspects.
