Blaszak Family Kidnapped, Forced to Watch The Wire


"YOU'VE
GOT TO WATCH
THE WIRE.

BY SCOTT BLASZAK

For five years, I've begged you to watch the best show on television, but you didn't listen. That's why I've kidnapped you, my closest friends and family members, and locked you here inside my apartment. I know how tired you all are of me telling you about The Wire's deliciously complex plotlines, its unflinching sociological commentary, and its note-perfect gallows humor. Well, I'm tired, too.

And so here we are."
