Unsolicited commentary and thoughts

If I could, I would take a week off and spend the whole week just watching The Wire. I’m about eight episodes into the first season now and the show is really addicting. I would call it slow in the sense that it’s not like CSI or Law & Order with everything in your face and overly dramatic, but it’s interesting enough that I want to keep watching.

The show strives for the realistic angle and as far as I can tell it pulls it off very well. Hell it took them half the season just to get a wiretap established. In writing that sounds like a really boring show to watch, but all of the characters are very well done. Plus, the fact that the storyline spans the entire season means there are no real resolutions at the end of each episode.

So I’ve got The Wire and How I Met Your Mother going right now, and then every week I’ve got 30 Rock, The Office, Important Things with Demetri Martin, and Battlestar Galactica, although that’ll be over shortly. I still have Friday’s episode of Dollhouse waiting to be watched, although there’s a good chance I’ll end up skipping it for good.

I may need to develop some sort of social life.
