Oh, indeed.

If you’re a fan of the HBO series The Wire, and come across someone who’s never seen it, there’s inevitably a pained silence in which you try to not be That Guy and blurt out, “You’ve never seen The Wire???” 

The show has a devoted fandom, one that’s likely rewatching HBO’s Wire marathon this weekend. As an extra of sorts, Baltimore Sun crime reporter Justin Fenton has been pairing photos of iconic Baltimore locations in the series with photos of those locations now. 

If you haven’t seen The Wire, just watch the season 1, episode 1 intro, and you’ll be hooked.
