Wire 106: S01E10 “The Cost”

Paul Bond and I discuss Episode 10 of Season 1 of The Wire: “The Cost.” And as you may have guessed, this episode is all about, well, the cost of it all. Also, Wire 106 internaut Maggie Stough provides and awesome look at light and color in this episode, and Paul Bond is up to his usual flights of fancy analysis. We’re are all getting pulled into the inescapable narrative gravity of this “Russian novel” of a series.
