"Wire" Season Five: What Really Happened

David Simon explains the true point of the newspaper storyline: that the Sun missed every major story of the season. He says most of the critics didn't notice this, but I certainly did, especially the part when Gus decided against including Omar's death in the paper.

And speaking of Simon and Baltimore-based cop shows, I've suddenly become addicted to "Homicide: Life on the Street," DVRing a couple episodes a week of the WGN re-runs. What a great show, even if some of the early '90s musical and camera cues are instantly dated. And I also love that so many of the suspects have names like "Krist Novoselic" and "Layne Staley."
