    I wonder if Howard is actually going to get into The Wire.

    His three closest friends on the show -- Robin, Gary, Jon Hein and Ralph -- are huge fans.

    Maybe Beth can explain the complexities of The Wire to him.

    I think he'll identify with Clay Davis.

    That's one of the worst pics of Robin I've seen in quite some time.

    There's no way Howard will be able to figure out the plot or keep track of who all the black guys are. They all look alike to him.

    That isn't what the OP said. March 2012 is when Howard discovered it, 10 years after its premier.

    9 years, 9 months to be exact.

    My point is that for most of the past decade, Howard has been hearing that this is the greatest show ever, from many people close to him.

    Yet he chose to just ignore it.

    I'm sure Stern will relate to Omar.

    At least all the boy lovin parts.

    Stern is a moron when it comes to good television.

    Download his material free of charge and Fuck his revolution.

    BTW, Beth O is a worthless star fucking cunt.

    TY. :coffee:

    His loss because it really is the best TV show of all time. Also I would put Omar up there as one of the most interesting TV characters.

    Omar doesn't make his first appearance until Episode 3, 4 or 5.

    I don't know if he'll last that long.

    I used to be a Wire evangelist back when nobody gave a fuck (I watched the night it came on).

    I would give friends VHS tapes of the first eight episode and beg them to watch until the "Fuck" scene (below).

    Some of my smartest street-iest friends didn't even bother.

    It was just too much to absorb.
