TV, where have ye gone?

Sunday was good TV. Two awesome shows had their season finalies. The Wire, an amazing show on HBO concluded in typical awesome The Wire fashion, not missing a beat and wrapping up a thousand loose ends in a complex storm of political ties and buys. Simply amazing through and through. It's too bad this show is over over. I mean, its the last season ever. What is HBO going to do now. I wonder if John Adams will be anygood. In Treatment is good too, but its just too much.

The other show that has impressed me to the extreme has been Breaking Bad. My wife says its crazy dramatic, to the point where she'll leave the room because its built in such a make or break teater totter fashion that you're seat edge gets plenty of use. Great show and its on AMC. They do swear on the show, but you can't hear it (cut away) but still obvious. Makes me think this show was beyond AMC fashion. All I can say is I need more BrBa.

Me and the other writers over at Highbrid Nation loved The Wire. Actually, one of our guys just did a post today talking about how important The Wire was to viewers as well as the cast.

I think The Wire is one of those shows that most people won't truly get until years from now. 20 years from now people will look back on the Wire as one of the greatest shows ever created.
