A fascinating video essay by Erlend Lavik breaks down in detail the things that made HBO’s award winning show The Wire so appealing to the mass public. “The video essay I made is obviously meant for people who have already seen The Wire, but I hope most of those who are familiar with the show will be able to follow my arguments and observations. I certainly don’t think anyone will find it totally incomprehensible. But so what if there’s something you don’t understand? You’re watching it online, so Google it! Coming across something you don’t comprehend is not a cause for offense, but an opportunity to learn,” says Erlend.
