The Wire. 

In 2009, my boss referenced a scene from The Wire. I drew a blank. “How you no watch The Wire??!”  He never let me forget it. 

Took me 5 years to see it and somehow, i think this was the best time to see it. What a show. 

But can it be called that? Half the time it felt like a documentary and the other half like an eerily prophetic mirror of society’s vicious cycles of unforgivable systemic lapses. A hundred moving parts, one harsh set of realities after another. 

As Bodie falls to the ground defending his corner, i think of Naeman. And i wonder whether he isn’t Wallace’s reincarnate, saved just in the nick of time. 

The cycle continues.
