Yeah, I mean there have been plenty of good episodes in the last season and a half, I just think the show lost its way overall. Obviously part of this was pressure from NBC/Universal to make some standalone episodes that unfamiliar viewers could get into, but even the story arc episodes have...
Currently reading The Big Blowdown by George Pelecanos.
Currently on my third run through The Wire...I don't think it will ever get old. I bet I'll be rewatching it for years to come.
