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.

:rolleyes: Evidence?

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

: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:

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

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:

Seven years later and this still is an incredibly awful post.
It's probably the only good post I have made. That said, everyone does seem to love it so I'll give it another go if I can find it, see if I can see now what they saw then.

Eh, I watched the whole first season and it didn't do much for me. Some good classic rap songs though. The Sopranos is a much better show.
