tune in

tune in

i am so excited!

the new season of "The Wire" starts tonight. the overarching theme of this season is education. this season, the wire follows the lives of young 4 boys and shows just how easy it is for kids to turn to crime. i can't wait to watch it. i'm so addicted to anything remotely connected with education, and in particular urban education. i am curious to see how the writers of the wire deal with the public education system. i love this show. the writing is just so adept and dead on, the characters are multi-dimensional, and the acting is extremely moving and realistic. sundays i will be glued to my tv to see what happens next.

    I really wished that I had HBO right now! I loved the last season.

    I've been asking around...

    what's the buzz about The Wire?

    I've only seen a snippet of this show and was instantly turned off because the scene that I saw was a Black lesbian couple making love.

    I was like...is this porn or what?! LOL. So I never watched it again.

    it's not porn, it's just a real dipiction of life. some gay folks (i.e. Omar the "homo thug"...and the cop, which is what you must have seen.)

    if i were you i'd give it a shot. the sex scenes are minimal. it's all about the drama of who is and is not a criminal. it's not always so clear cut to tell the good guys from the bad.
