    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Finished the fifth season a week ago. On the whole, the series was excellent. Best TV series I've ever seen, though admittedly I haven't seen many.

    I figured even a nationalistic Brit would like this show, since like 90% of the actors were taught at that London acting school

    Do you decide how good TV shows are by the nationality of the actors?

    Nope, I didn't know most of the actors were Brits until well after I had finished watching. Well written, very well acted, great show. I just figured their nationality would endear you to the show.

    Believe it or not, the majority black cast turned off A LOT of people during the run of the show.

    It truly was the Red Tails of the small screen.

    Well, I think we disproved that theory today.

    Evidence is on one of the special features documentaries about the show

    Ah, I bet. A few anecdotes and the matter is settled, right?

    Wow, contentious just for the sake of being contentious. I'll pop in the special feature disk when I get home and I'll tell you exactly what it is. IIRC, it was actually a British documentary about the show, interviewing the writer/producer who commented on the small audience size saying he believed it was because the cast was majority black.

    If not the British doc, it's the other one I have.

    :crackup: Call me contentious, sure, but I was dead right. You saw a documentary where one guy says he believes his small viewing audience is due to a majority of the cast being black. You turn this into a declarative statement of:


    Sorry man, but you do this all the time. It's fun to point out the especially bad examples. I'll stop shitting up a Wire thread now, I promise. :cheers:
