Five minutes ago I finished “The Wire” and it was one of the saddest and happiest and greatest things I’ve ever seen in any form of storytelling. That might sound like an exaggeration but I don’t feel that it is. I don’t think I have ever cried this much over a work of fiction and felt such a strong connection to characters as though they really existed. It will be rare if another TV show could ever surpass The Wire. The things it sets out to do and the scope it attempts to accomplish are obliterated. I’ve never seen a show so willing to take as many risks in not only the way it tells its story but the way it structures itself. There has never been another show that has so thoroughly explored the assets of human live as this one has. It’s a show that had me screaming, cheering, laughing, crying and above all caring. The Wire marks the highest point in what television and long form storytelling can accomplish. It should be studied, revered and never forgotten.

“Isn’t that dangerous? Maybe I’ll discover things I don’t want to know about myself.“
“Not at all. You’ll discover important things that you want to know. We don’t go to places if we really don’t want to. A human mechanism prevents us from entering dark places. Memory takes us where we need to go.“
