    Just read that the final season of The Wire, HBO's last great drama is scheduled to start in Jan 08. Any fans here? Really really good show that never jumped the shark. I will miss it when it's done..

    Best TV drama ever produced IMO. Sad to see it go, but we as viewers are blessed that HBO has allowed it to flourish as it has, despite low ratings but tremendously positive reviews by critics.

    Kamikaze, did you also watch The Corner? I read that the real life Omar Little just married the real life Fran, mother of Deandre from The Corner. Wild stuff...

    No, but I read the book that inspired the series.

    kaZ, thanks for posting that.. I can't wait but dread the end at the same time.
    If you get a chance, rent The Corner. It kinda sets up The Wire and follows some desperate street characters - feels alot like the Bubs segments...

    I've seen episodes 1 & 2, looks promising. The show is a slow burner, and a slow starter; I've read and heard the show is the antithesis of The Sopranos, and will leave with a bang.

    Saw episode 1 last week as well as the special feature freebies on Comcast On-Demand. Loved the whole bit about the copy machine..
    Looking forward to Episode 2 tonight!
