“There’s a Wire in every fuckin’ city.”

via Jim’s site,

excerpts from New York Magazine’s interview with Michael K. Williams (Omar)

Do you think The Wire’s helped to shed light on the darker side of Baltimore?
What I really hope the show’s done is struck a chord with all the hoods in all the cities of this country. Because, really, what The Wire is, is an American story, an American social problem. There’s a Wire in every fuckin’ city.

Can we expect any big surprises to come our way?
Oh yeah, a lot of big surprises. My hint towards that question is to keep your eyes on the children. Watch those kids. They’re gonna really take it to another level this year. But all I can really say is, brace yourself.

Note also Jim’s collection of links to other new articles on the start of the season, in particular, The Atlantic’s Angriest Man in Television piece on Simon.

  1. Wow, the new online articles of praise for the new season are appearing every few minutes today. I call your attention to E! Online’s unexpected and impassioned plea for America to watch and Newday’s take on the impact or lack thereof on television and the country.
