The Wire

Yesterday I watched the season premiere of the final season of The Wire. I may do a longer review, but here are some quick thoughts. I think the episode airs tomorrow, so no spoilers from me.

Wasn't really that much that happened -- definitely a plot continuation episode, with the introduction of the Baltimore Sun newsroom about half-way through. This episode didn't focus that much on the newsroom, at least relative to my expectations given the hype for season 5. I tend to judge season premieres against The Sopranos, which were usually the artsy ones written and directed by David Chase, where dream sequences began and plot cliffhangers were resolved. Not so really for this season premier -- season 5 really just seems to pick up right where season 4 ended.
