Snitch of the Week: 10/8 - 10/14 (Wire Leak)

Someone leaked the rest of Season 4 of The Wire to the Internet.

If you have a high speed Internet connection, an understanding of video codecs/BitTorrent and a dubious sense of morality I highly recommend you download that shit ASAP.

I personally couldn't wait the 6 weeks it would have taken the show to finish normally on HBO.
Y'all know how I love this shit.

The truly great thing about The Wire is the way it turns preconceived or misunderstood notions on its head.

Peep this scene from Season 2 or 3, where gay stick-up kid Omar Little testifies in court and makes the lawyer look lower than the drug dealers he defends,


I gotta come back on this season after it finishes. It deserves a proper write up. The shit touches on No Child Left Behind, the Stop Snitching campaign, fake rape cases (Duke?), child welfare and a bunch of other shit that makes it the most relevant look at what blacks went/go through since Roots.

Having seen it all I can say without a doubt, that The Wire is the best show of 2006 and maybe one of the best if not most important television shows of all time.

It's that serious.

And for me to choose The Wire as the top show of 2006 over The Shield is like choosing between Beyonce and Christina Milian.
A man shouldn't have to choose.

Mysterious Wire leaker, for bestowing the blessing of unaired Wire episodes upon me, you are the Snitch of the Week.


  1. You know, if you have HBO on Demand from TWCNY...You can peep the episodes before the normal "air" date, right?

    May be that you can only see one episode in advance, but I'm not sure???


  2. I still cant watch any of it, GRRR!!! Im thinking that by next week ill be all caught up. I get Pizzaid of Wednesday, and I dont think I can wait till Jess gets seasons 2 and 3 on Netflix I might have to buy them as well. If things go as planned ill be done by Friday.

  3. - Yea, you get one episode before the air date.

    But the Internet has the whole damn season.

    - Do what you must to see it all.

  4. Battlesta Galactica is THE best effin show on TV in '06. Pleeze believe!

  5. I have been hearing that show is pretty good, but the Star Wars nerds scare me.

    Plus I have to start with Season 1.

  6. Hey hr, did you get the full torrent? Mine seems to be stuck at 87%

  7. Fin, I got the whole thing a while ago.

    Don't know why the torrent is stuck.
