Yes, he did:
"We thought some prolonged arguments about what kind of country we've built might be a good thing, and if such arguments and discussions ever happen, we will feel more vindicated in purpose than if someone makes an argument for why The Wire is the best show in years. ("Buffy," by the way, was the correct answer to that particular bracketfest.)"

Season 3 was maybe the best in my opinion (although it is very hard to pick one out) also with Colvins 'Hamsterdam' experiment. Bunny Colvin and Stringer Bell were two revolutionary (potential) game changers, and it was sad to see how office politics make any plan for changes impossible. "The game stays the game".
Yeah.. that experiment was something.

I thought the season 3 finale wrapped up most of the characters' stories nicely, though there are a few plot strands that are unresolved.

Either way, The Wire did it wayyyy better. Saying it's a poor man's HLOTS is like saying Rafael Nadal is a poor man's Albert Ramos.

All among my favorites too. The Wire surpasses them all for me but that's splitting hairs really.

The Shield is a thrilling ride indeed. Just don't go in expecting The Wire.
