The Best by RW - October 6, 2008
Way to end the Wire. Everything done better than I could have hoped. Marlow's end-of-arc was my favorite.

Such a great choice, going out on a high note. Undoubtedly will go down as one of the most complete, artistically and dramatically important television shows in American history, a blueprint for how entertainment can be done.
