"Sheeeeeeeeeeeeit! BBC, you just don’t deserve to get your hands on these shows." Yes - whilst we all binged on the Wire when we had it on DVD, that doesn't mean that the "binge" is the correct method of consumption. 60 episodes across 12 weeks? Madness, and I say that as a Wire fan.

"All of sudden, I realized that the grime pirates had become a niche thing, a micro-culture that probably wasn’t that much bigger than the anti-pop vanguards that populated the pages of The Wire." Simon Reynolds on grime for The Wire.

"He knows nothing and he needs everything explained to him right away, so that exposition becomes this incredible, story-killing burden".
