The Wire-ner

Given the number of white people who read my blog, it is perhaps no surprise that The Wire was the winner of the decades-long 'Best HBO Show' poll series. The final match was still very close, as the Wire collected seven votes to eke out Band Of Brothers' five votes and Curb Your Enthusiasm's four.

Given that this poll was in some ways a veiled attempt to decide which series I should watch next, The Wire will now be at the top of my must-view list along with various movies and the kazillion other shows I watch. But don't worry, it's in the queue. We have top men working on it right now. Top. Men.

With this poll FINALLY over, we can now move onto the more pressing matter of who the biggest bad-ass on TV is. The field has been narrowed to five: 24's Jack Bauer, LOST's Sayid Jarrah, Corner Gas' Emma Leroy, The Office's Dwight Schrute and a beer-chasing Homer Simpson. Be sure to answer carefully, let you get on the bad side of one of these bad mutha 'uckas.

I agree with Dallas - but feel free to skip the fifth and final season...
