Halfway Through Season Four

Matthew Yglesias on The Wire:

It’s the best show on television. The best show in the history of television. And with season five ready to start airing in about a month, it’s by far the best show that’s currently still on. So you need to watch it. Okay? Okay.

Discussion question: Mr. Yglesias fails to take the next logical step and declare it the best show that will ever be on television. What aspect of The Wire is he missing?

As far as he goes, though, he’s right.
