Just watched the first episode of The Wire. Jeezus. The writing is horrendous — besides the premise being boring, every character talks in the same smart-ass potty-mouth style. How does this garbage get such high ratings?
I doubt I'll power through this series like I did Breaking Bad. And I may have to intersperse episodes with Ingmar Bergmann films to liven things up a bit.
"The trouble with being a ghost writer or artist is that you must remain anonymous without credit.
If one wants the credit, one has to cease being a ghost and become a leader or innovator." — Bob Kane
