Making the world a better place, one show at a time.

I guess you would like to know a little bit about the person making all these proclamations upon good taste and horrid characters. I'm Andrea and when I was 15 I fell in love. An hour after meeting "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" I was forever altered in the way only love can, and I never questioned for one minute afterwards that television offered me an amazing chance to experience lives and moments that I could never imagine. So now, when I'm not getting distracted by my real life, I write about TV. I also read, am finishing a Master's degree in English Literature, travel, am attempting to learn vegan cooking, am the 5th of 6 children, and drive my roommate nuts by constantly cleaning our already clean apartment. Now that we're old friends, time for you to take my opinions as the be all and end all.

Random Question: The Wire

The Wire series finale aired on Sunday. It was on HBO for five seasons. I have never seen one single minute of it. But I have a great deal of time at work, and I basically read thing on the Internet all day. The last two days I have been reading reviews of said series finale. My brother Basil highly recommends this show (or at least he did to our younger brother Lafayette, not actually to me). I am intrigued by what I have heard and read, but it is all so vague. "Best drama on TV," "most intelligent writing," "gritty picture of urban reality." I am not dissaggreeing that these kinds of phrases provide description, but my question is: can anyone help me orient myself to the proper perspective so that I can begin watching this show?

That is kind of a long question.

The TV Girl said...

Not that I am disparaging Joe Bird's opinion, since he is smart enough to marry Becca and all, but did she happen to mention anything he says about why he is a fan?
