Despite the final season lacking many of the aspects that made the first four seasons so enjoyable and important to watch it is sad that people are not interested in watching The Wire. Many have said it before, but The Wire may be the best commentary on American life and the decline of cities like Baltimore in recent memory.

So sad to see you go. Still the best show on TV.

Its aright. I applaud HBO for having the integrity to see this show all the way through, despite the dismal ratings. This was the best TV show ever made, hands down. It was honest, it never took the easy road. People are going to remember that. Years from now, when kids study drama they are going to study the Wire. Its is going to live forever, long after people have forgotten Sex In The CIty, The Sopranos, etc they are still going to talk about the Wire. Whenever a list is put together for the best shows of all time, the Wire is going to be on it. That counts for a lot.
