The suspense, it’s killing us.

But at least there’s a lot to read. The pre-premiere publicity onslaught continues with today’s NYT feature on Clark Johnson. Sidebar bonus for newbies: A season-by-season tracking of the major plotlines, without spoilers, coming in at just under 1,000 words.

UPDATE: But wait, there’s more! Specifically, the John Leonard review in New York magazine, a publication working overtime at making sweet, sweet love to “The Wire.”
