Michael K. Williams. Indeed.

You probably know by this point, how much I love The Wire. It was dark, depressing at times and one of the finest television series I have ever seen. If you were a fan of Homicide and Hill Street Blues, you have to watch it. I have a friend who says it’s so good that you have to watch the entire 5 seasons once a year.

Michael K. Williams(Omar), discusses the role of Omar, The Road and shares how he was broke and living in the projects during the first two seasons of  The Wire:

“But he never made much money, and was intermittently homeless. That’s when he was arrested stealing cars. “I thought I was gonna die soon,” says Williams. “My mother had taken out extra life insurance. She was like, ‘You ain’t gonna stick me with no bill, you feel me?’

Dollhouse is done.

Thanks to a Twitter post by Felicia Day, I now know the fate of Dollhouse. FOX, you are a bunch of bastards. I was really liking the direction the show was taking in these last few episodes. Joss has promised to give fans a proper goodbye and FOX did commit to air all 13 episodes this season, so I guess that’s something right?

Here are a few more links about the cancellation:

E!Online asks whether the show will be picked up by another network.

EW asks if we are peeved or pleased by the cancellation.

Not that it matters now, but AirlockAlpha talks about Dollhouse’s big DVR numbers.

and finally…

Joss Whedon comments on the news.

Oink.

Sorry for the lack of posts, but the pig flu has completely sidelined me for almost two weeks now. I’ve basically been stuck on the couch watching bad Lifetime movies and MonsterQuest marathons. It was while watching Lifetime’s, “Too Late to Say Goodbye”, featuring Rob Lowe and an overly botoxed Lauren Holly, that I came upon this video gem of a scuba diving cat.

I thought it was fake until I came across the actual story of Hawkeye, The Scuba Diving Cat. My bad. Check out HowStuffWorks for the whole tale of Hawkeye and his companion, Muttley, the scuba diving doggie.
