Watching the Detectives (BRRcast #02)

For this Pop Culture Panel, Dan Suitor and Amy Watts join me to discuss HBO's The Wire. Oft-heralded as the best show in the history of television, it's also one that was never very popular in its early seasons, but has drawn more and more viewers over the last 10 years as it made its way into the cultural consciousness.

More than many other television serials, The Wire watches like great literature and rewards rewatching, in large part because characters develop from smaller parts to larger ones over the course of the series. As our window into the world of Baltimore, the series sprawls over the years and it's all connected.

SPOILER NOTICE: This podcast discusses events from the first five episodes of season one.
