Damon Lindelof said it himself on Nerdist No. 85: The Wire was among the — if not the — greatest television show ever made. (If you want evidence of this, go ‘like’ The Wire on Facebook. Years after the show ended, whoever is running that page will drop a quote and get about 18,000 comments in a half-hour.)
If you want to go even deeper with McNulty, Bunk, Omar, Marlo and the rest of the crew, Pop Pilgrims (really solid feature, as an aside) has now dedicated an episode to Bodymore. Actually, they needed two episodes for this one — Part I is embedded above, with more information here, and Part II shall be released on A/V Club this Wednesday.
