On a somewhat less scary note:

Go read Jacob Weisberg describe "Why The Wire is the best show on Television".

He's not wrong. It's an absolutely amazing achievement- not only for the intelligent treatment of urban life, the War on Drugs, and the kinds of personalities that you find in the drug game on all sides (dealers, junkies, suppliers and cops)... but because he takes Baltimore--a city that many Americans don't give two thoughts about in a year--and puts its life and soul up on the screen for all to see. It ain't pretty, but it's powerful.
