It’s Not TV. It’s HBO.

The Corner, The Sopranos, Oz and now The Wire … HBO continues to find pleasing entertainment for the masses.

As far back as I can remember … thanks to illegal cable, HBO has always been a source for “very” good shows. I am hard-pressed to ramble off as quickly many shows from another cable network carrying the same interest as these four shows have for HBO. Sure a Showtime fan will counter with: The L Word, The Tudors and Weeds. And then I’ll fire off Arli$$, 1rst & Ten and Entourage. Conversation closed!

What’s next for the “original programming” masters?

FYI – “The Wire”- creator, David Simon has a miniseries titled “Generation Kill” scheduled for release later this year. “Generation Kill” will chronicle one marine’s experience during the first wave of the American-led assault on Baghdad in 2003.

** Wow I can still remember Fraggle Rock **

  1. Me and the other writers over at Highbrid Nation loved The Wire. Actually, one of our guys just did a post today talking about how important The Wire was to viewers as well as the cast.

    I think The Wire is one of those shows that most people won’t truly get until years from now. 20 years from now people will look back on the Wire as one of the greatest shows ever created.
