The Wire Backlash from . . . Teh Gawker

February 26, 2008

“The bigger the lie, the more they believe.”
Bunk

The OP at The Gawker believes the “serial killer” plotline is embarrassingly improbable. No, really, is it? I think that’s the point, innit. I mean, who woulda thunk that realistic. I’d more easily believe that an executive government could find an opportunity in a tragedy, make false connections to that tragedy, conspire to marshal all our energies, manpower and military to avenge that tragedy all the while having an ulterior motive, to right a past wrong.

Season five has been about lies, probabilities and improbabilities.  I guess the show was just more engrossing when it was only about Black men killing other Black men over drugs and money. (yes, I know that’s not only what the show has been about, no letters please)
