TWiB just did the math on a couple posts from Time and Digital Spy. Attorney General Eric Holder urged The Wire‘s creator David Simon to create a new season.

Simon’s response?

The Attorney-General’s kind remarks are noted and appreciated. I’ve spoken to Ed Burns and we are prepared to go to work on season six of The Wire if the Department of Justice is equally ready to reconsider and address its continuing prosecution of our misguided, destructive and dehumanising drug prohibition.”

P.S. If you’re going to watch TV, watch The Wire.
