Way Down in the Hole

The Wire aired on HBO from 2002 to 2008, running 5 brilliant seasons, but few noticed at the time. The series largely flew under the radar until it was off the air and word of mouth made it a cult hit. Well, cult hit status demands tributes, for better or for worse, and a fan's new animated promo definitely fits the former.

Not one for advocating couch potato-ism, but, if you haven't seen The Wire, get yerself HBO Now or the DVD's and plant your keister on that davenport for a wild ride through Baltimore's underbelly of law enforcement, drugs, trade, education, politics, and media.

The following clip should help stir the waters for some serious couch surfing.
