I've never done one of these before.

But how the Emmys could not nominate the two best shows on TV. "Friday Night Lights" and "The Wire" for best drama - just proves the Emmy's are worthless.

I don't complain until one of my shows gets canceled. Why? Well, I must be the most unhip person around because I don't watch any of the shows nominated for best show.

I did however watch "Broken Trail" and thought it was excellent.

Best drama is a joke category this year anyway. I think everyone will be shocked if they don't give it to the Sopranos.

I'm the biggest prosthelyzer of the Wire there is. I successfully converted like 5 people in my office last year to become devout followers. Generally, I get angry at people who haven't watched it and it makes my head hurt and want to take a nap.

But even I've resigned myself to the fact that it's never gonna get any award recognition. I thought there might be some slight chance considering Season 4 was about kids...but nope. Generally, I think it's just too far outside of typical TV critics comfort zone to garner any real following.

Which is a damn shame.

It isn't the critics that don't like the Wire - all the critics love the show. it is the Emmy voters which is a strange conglamorate of actors, producers, directors and other hollywood types

I've seen the first 2 seasons of "The Wire" and I love that show. When I get back I'm going to watch season 3 and 4.

Yeah...that's what I meant...the voters.

My bad. I just tend to black-out a little when trying to discuss the public's reaction to The Wire.

All in the game, I suppose.
