I will miss you, The Wire.
I guess you had to get got sooner or later.
For all those feeling a bit of separation anxiety after watching the season finale and needing a bit of cheering up, here's what the blog Stuff White People Like had to say (if you can laugh at yourself anyway):
If you attempt to talk about an episode they have not seen yet, they will scream and cover their ears. In white culture, giving away information about a film or TV series is considered as rude as spitting on your mothers grave. It is an unforgivable offense.
For the past three years, whenever you say “The Wire” white people are required to respond by saying “it’s the best show on television.” Try it the next time you see a white person! Though now they might say “it WAS the best show on television.”
