(Did you ever revisit it, Fly?)
No I didn't, Billyv, not because I didn't think it was worth watching. Too many people whose sensibilities are akin to my own have sung the praises of the Wire, and the episodes I did watch were good enough that I know I would have loved the whole series. It's just that life stuff intervenes, and the limitations of time and energy force one to make priorities.
I'm at the point now where I can't imagine watching any TV series, no matter how good it is. Heck I never even watch Sopranos DVDs anymore since about 2009. I can't remember the last time I went to the theater, and I almost never watch movies on TV at home, either. In fact, my whole TV should be taken out of my home, LOL, except that I do watch a little basketball casually (and some NFL with my aunt). But all my energies for the past 5 and a half years have been intensely focused on psycho-spiritual growth (and the artistic expression that came from it -- poetry, poetic prose, and a film, which I'm writing the screenplay for now). My multitasking abilities are virtually non existent, so I'm afraid I'll never see The Wire or some of the other touted shows that followed in the wake of you-know-what.
