When you see this picture of this man…
…is your immediate reaction:
a) It’sÂ Matthew Abaddon!
b) It’sÂ Cedric Daniels!
c) It’s Desmond Mobay!
e) Good lord, I watch a lot of TV. Also, I will be unsurprised if he shows up on Mad Men.
I am now balls deep into watching The Wire, meaning I am on episode 9 of the first season. After hearing for yearsÂ that OMG ALI THE WIRE IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN YOU HAVE TO WATCH, I finally convinced my husband that it’s maybe/probably something he would like to watch (it doesn’t seem chock full of feelings) and we downloaded the entire series. I will fully admit to you right here and now, I wasn’t 100% sold while watching the first 4 episodes.
(But to be fair, the first few episodes of Community and Parks and Recreation didn’t have me sold either)
Perhaps it was the huge build-up from every single person I knew telling me that I would like The Wire more than I like my children. Perhaps it was that gigantenormous cast of characters and quick cuts to different scenes and well, let’s just say that I became that irritating lady in the movie theater who can’t stop with the “Oh my god, who is that? What’s happening? Why is he going in there? Wait…what’s that guy’s name again? Stink? What kind of name is *that*?” and in case you were wondering, I am not, in any way, shape or form, proud that I became THAT LADY, but it was a necessary evil to get to the point where
I cannot stop watching this show.
I guess I now know what I will be doing for the next 18 days.
*If your answer is D, I don’t know that we can be friends anymore. Unless you don’t have a television or live underground. Even then, it’s questionable.Â
