    I'm ready. Are you? They are still filming the season, so we'll have to wait.

    My son Ethan is going to Baltimore at the end of the month for a few days to check it out. I don't know who I told this, but one of his best friend's father works on The Wire. Dad is directing the episode they will be filming that week. Ethan gets to hang out on the set for a day and then do some site seeing for a few days. Is that cool or what?

    Oh, bummer. I was looking forward to cancelling HBO by January or so.

    Here's some of the 5th season details from Wikipedia:

    HBO announced September 12, 2006, that they have commissioned a fifth and final season, ordering 13 episodes.[1] The season was later shortened to 10 episodes.[27] In an interview with Slate on December 1, 2006, David Simon said that season five will be about the media and consumers of media. The theme will be about "what stories get told and what don't and why it is that things stay the same." Journalism modeled after The Baltimore Sun will be a major focus. Profits and the decrease in the number of reporters will be an issue along with the end of aspiration for news quality.[2] In the same interview, Simon indicated that no theme seemed substantial enough to warrant a sixth season, except possibly the large influences of Latinos into Baltimore. Simon said that since no writer on the show spoke Spanish or had any intimate knowledge of the city's Latino population, the field work would be too cumbersome.

    On April 30, 2007, production for Season 5 officially began.

    Simon stated at the Night at the Wire event on June 9, 2007 that Detective Sydnor is the only character who remains morally clean at the end of the show, but not perfectly since "after all, this is The Wire". Simon also made references towards a possible run by Mayor Carcetti for governor, continuing to mirror current Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley. On that night, fans were allowed to tour the Baltimore Sun newsroom the show had constructed, as a main setting for Season 5 will be the media, and a main theme will be homelessness.

    Today is the day Ethan's watching them shoot. I know he's hoping to get some bit part or at least walk across the screen or something, but he might be getting the coffee and donuts, I don't know. I'm anxious to hear.
