Anyone still watching this? I dig it.

I lol'd at the line: "I played Portland. Nice folks. D'you know they clap on the 1 and the 3?"

Awesome.

The Emmy's blow almost every year.
That's Carter looking back at the clusterfuck that has been the last three seasons of The X-Files.

Back to topic, not feeling Treme yet, but a David Simon show can be reviewed only when a full season is seen. I'm sure it will pick up.

I like this show a lot. Every week it sucks me in more and more.

I won't compare it to The Wire cos few things stand up to that sort of comparison.

Few shows in TV history, in my opinion, stand up to a comparison to The Wire.

Are you asking me to name them?

Well, not sure what a TV critic would say, and certainly there are series that are acclaimed that I've never seen (Law & Order for instance), but for me:

Deadwood
M*A*S*H*
Hill Street Blues
All in the Family
Seinfeld

Honorable mention

St Elsewhere
Larry Sanders show

I don't know if it's fair to lump comedies into the list, but, these represent the shows I've seen in my life that rival The Wire regardless of genre. I'd have included Arrested Development but, much as I love the show, 2 amazing seasons and a decent 3rd season doesn't quite cut it.

Again, this is highly personal and I don't claim that this is "fact", just my take.

Interesting. For me, The Wire stands apart from everything else I've seen on the small screen. That doesn't mean that it's the best show I've ever seen or that I enjoyed it more than any other, but I've never seen a better written show about a political topic. I never once thought that is was heavy handed or turned a character into a puppet piece for an ideology.

There are shows that i've liked better, but I'm still amazed by The Wire.
