Well, Alex, if you didn't know, my favorite will always be "The Wire" as well. I am obsessed with the show and have seen it seven times. Did you know there is a real life Dennis Wise, who is a convicted murderer who was reformed? Simon and Burns gave Cutty that name to give him a model for reform. Jay Landsman, in "All The Pieces Matter" by Jonathan Abrams, in real life, disagreed with the naming because he had investigated Wise in real life and thought he was a really bad guy. I know lots of other random trivia like that. I don't think that many people would read it, unfortunately :(
