    Yeah I like all three of those shows (although Curb jumped the shark with that last season).. And for the dramas at least we have the DVDs..

    I'm going to get into Oz next I think, even though everyone tells me that I've been spoiled on The Wire and will be laughing out-loud while I watch it.

    That's actually pretty funny that they say that.. Keeping in mind that Oz was the first of all those dramatic hour long HBO series, there are times when things are so over-the-top that it is laughable. Still though I loved that show. You'll see plenty of faces from The Wire (Bodie, Daniels, Herc, Carver, Rawls off the top of my head).. Oz has some great characters and you never know who's gonna buy it from week to week - but there's one name to remember: Simon Adebisi.. how does he keep that hat on the side of his head??
    Enjoy...

    I've let a coupla days sink in since the passing of The Wire. While I think they did an outstanding job with the episode itself I still feel sad that we'll see these characters again.. The usual season ending song deal where they show a little bit of the present and future for each of the characters was especially well-done this year.
    My only regret is that I wish Bodie could have survived the series..

    Where's Wallace...

    I bought the first four seasons of Oz for 40 bucks new, and it's enjoyable so far. I miss the writing and scope of The Wire though.

    Happy my boy Slim Charles made out like a champ, I knew from Season 4 on he would become the major player by the end.

    It get's quite a bit better after Season 1.. The Schillinger/Beecher thing steps it up quite a bit. Characters become more defined etc.

    I LOVED Deadwood... My favorite show period.
    I'm such a stupid fan I went all the freakin way to Deadwood and met the stars of the show when they had a special HBO event.
    Damn HBO for canceling the show halfway in.

    If by nothing you mean a few things...
    Show went 2 seasons too long and lost its way along the way.
