Well, probably my favorite TV show ever, THE WIRE, had its finale last night. It was an extremely satisfying coda for the show, at times uplifting, at times utterly heartbreaking, but always rewarding. I really don't want to say too much about it, both because I don't want to unintentionally spoil anything for any of my friends who have yet to take my sage advice and start watching the damn thing , and because I feel like others have already said anything I would say and said it better (That said, I would love to hear what the rest of you have to say about it, so please, comment away!). Suffice to say, it was a hell of lot better than that other finale, the "brilliance" of which I still have yet to discover.
Anyway, I just really wanted to say something about this great show, and tie it into the blog in some way. Unfortunately, about the only aspect from THE WIRE that fits alongside my artistic sensibilities is probably Nick Sobatka's girlfriend Aimee from Season Two (remember her? And those?). So, here's all I got...a little sketch of the lovely Beadie Russell (played by Amy Ryan), doodled while watching the aforementioned Season Two for the third time.
