A Better Idea Than The Wire

How do you top The Wire?

I’m going to create a TV series myself and my show is going to last five MILLION seasons and it is going to BLOW YOUR MIND. It’s going to be set in even worse parts of Baltimore, maybe in the sewers, and it will show HBO viewers not just the “Other America” but the Other Other OTHER America. The America that’s so other that the Other America will watch one episode and say, what the fuck? How amazing is it that he is paid well to show us this despair? Get us our laurel wreath because it’s crownin’ time. I’m talking about a Baltimore where befanged mutants communicate using chemical pheromones through their antenna-like tails and the police, who are hybridized genetic half-leopards, half-humans, but all po-lice, actually chop up and smoke the criminals like drugs before they go on killing sprees, where Rawls AND Daniels are gay and everyone travels by blimp and Omar can FLY.

Yeah, I’d watch that shit.
