I covered that and season 5 as they aired. Then I looped back around to do season 1 and season 2 on this blog, and when I moved to HitFix, I spent the first summer there covering season 3. Everything is covered, everything is easily linked to, etc., and yet a glitch I've never understood in the Blogspot software means that a few times a month, I have to explain to people where the season 5 reviews are.
For whatever reason, when you click on the link for season 5, it takes you to a page featuring only my series finale review and my post-finale interview with David Simon. Some people know to click on the "Older Posts" link below the Simon interview, and some don't, so to save me some time in the future, I'm making this the first post you'll see when you click on the season 5 link, and I'm including links to all the reviews right here. In order:
* Episode 1, "More with Less"
* Episode 2, "Unconfirmed Reports"
* Episode 3, "Not For Attribution"
* Episode 4, "Transitions"
* Episode 5, "React Quotes"
* Episode 6, "The Dickensian Aspect"
* Episode 7, "Took"
* Episode 8, "Clarifications"
* Episode 9, "Late Editions"
* Episode 10, "-30-"
* David Simon post-finale interview
There. Much better.
