new and noteworthy tv: 1/15-1/21

Well I finally finished The Wire! And it was well worth watching, although it does hold the test of time it would have been nice to see some of the technology elements in real time. And now I’m continuing on with Deadwood and the rest of the roundup but starting to eye what missed series to visit next.
