You're not the only one disappointed that The Wire is off the air. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder feels the same way. And he has the platform to ask for a reprieve.
Speaking with the cast and crew at the Justice Department on Tuesday, Holder pleaded with series creator David Simon and director Ed Burns (not that Ed Burns) for the return of the series. "Having looked at those clips again, I'm reminded how great that series was," he said. "I want to speak directly to Mr. Burns and Mr. Simon, do another season of The Wire. [...] I want another season, or a movie. I have a lot of power."
He sure does. Just not enough to bring The Wire back from the television dead. Looks like Holder will have to be like the rest of us mere mortals this summer: watching The Wire on DVD until Breaking Bad returns.
