My last post about The Wire ever. I promise*

The good people over at literary webzine Please Don’t decided to put together a symposium on The Wire and they were kind enough to ask me to participate. Good looking out, Thorny

We posted a call: 500 words on your favorite scene of The Wire. We felt it was important that the pieces be brief and focused like the scenes they honor and that a variety of voices be heard. In both, we hope to pay a sort of homage.

The responses we got were enthusiastic, insightful, and are compiled below. Just one caveat—this is an exercise in spoilers. You really shouldn’t read on if you haven’t watched the show in its entirety.

I can’t think of a better way to waste the last 30 minutes of your workday while you pretend  to be doing something productive.  Check it out

    mate you can always keep going on about the wire. Won’t be anything worth talking about this much for a LONG time. I’d go with the Season 1 scene where Wallace is killed cause that really told you anything will happen in this show and what you know about TV is going to change.
