Farvel to The Wire

It's my understanding that Denmark is the happiest country in the world, because its citizens keep their expectations low. Such low expectations are constantly being surpassed which results in much satisfaction. Last night turned out to be a great lesson in living like the Danish. It totally works.

For five incredible and intense seasons of The Wire, I fearfully watched Bubbles struggle with an addiction that seemed to have him beat. Every episode, I prepared myself for the very worst. But... he made it! All the way off the streets and out of the basement. I couldn't have been happier! So now, true to the Danish way, I'm going to expect that there will never be another show quite as good. And then who knows, maybe one of these days...

Thank you, Nadine and Jonah for sharing your cable with me :) See you in the East Bay! And last, but never least, a huge thanks to the Freezedog for dialing me in to the best television show I've ever watched.

You are very welcome, Christiana! We enjoyed having you. I'm really going to miss the Wire. I think I grew attached to some of the characters!
