Is BSG better than The Wire?
I don't know many people who've been watching BSG, which is about to come to an end (I watched part 1 of the finale last night, courtesy of Sky+) but lots of people have recommended the Wire to me. I think that in a hundred years* people will be studying these DVD sets in the same way that students now work through Dickens. This book has much of relevance to say about it.
I'm sure I will watch The Wire - but I have to get through my Christmas present of the complete West Wing before I do. (And James, I'll make sure I watch To Kill a Mockingbird some time soon, as well as the others on that list!)
*Assuming we have some record of them - see here.
