    Gillen hardly had to alter his character from Carcetti to Little Finger--just let the evil-pragmatism shine through a little more.

    Critical estimation of The Wire was always pretty high, mounting thru its run, and it seems to have gotten higher since despite the cable freight-trains since.  I doubt any of those other shows, even MM and BB, are going to end up taught in higher ed (outside of film school) the way The Wire is already.  Nineteenth Century Urban Realism, to the max.  Plus Omar.  "Ayo waddup, Bird?"
