OMG – new The Wire clips I haven’t seen – and they’re prequels!

OMG! Actual bits of The Wire I haven’t seen! These are all prequels that I think HBO put on its web site before the fifth season or stuck on a DVD or something, so some of you might have seen them already. But it’s actual The Wire footage I haven’t seen. I’d forgotten how joyous that felt.

Before the jump, when McNulty met Bunk for the first time. After the jump, it’s Young Omar and Prop Joe.

    I’m Rob Buckley, a journalist who writes for UK media magazines that most people have never heard of although you might have heard me on the podcast Lockdown Land or Radio 5 Live’s Saturday Edition or Afternoon Edition. I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe. Since going freelance, I've contributed to the likes of Broadcast, Total Content + Media, Action TV, Off The Telly, Action Network, TV Scoop and The Custard TV.
