The Wire has a proud ex - p.d. for a fan

In summing up "The Wire," Postlapsarian recalls a previous line of work:

I mean one of the reasons why I chose to be a public defender was to get immersed in a gritty world that I wouldn’t normally be a part of — and I wanted that to be conveyed realistically.

The Wire is the first and only show to do it... Amazing. If they had The Wire on while I was in law school, I think I would have all five seasons of it and not gone into criminal law at all...

I was watching the finale again last night. It's one of the few shows I'll really miss.
