David Simon is tired of your love for The Wire
I do have a certain amused contempt for the number of people who walk sideways into the thing and act like they were there all along. It’s selling more DVDs now than when it was on the air. But I’m indifferent to who thinks Omar is really cool now, or that this is the best scene or this is the best season. It was conceived of as a whole, and we did it as a whole. For people to be picking it apart now like it’s a deck of cards or like they were there the whole time or they understood it the whole time—it’s wearying. Because no one was there in the beginning, or the middle, or even at the end. Our numbers continued to decline from Season 2 on.

If you want to love David Simon’s shows, it’s probably better not to listen to what comes out of his mouth.

David Simon takes the ‘Hipster’ approach.

    Now I feel better about never having seen his show. Sorry I didn’t have HBO when The Wire was on, you dick.
