HBO's 'The Wire' Gets Re-imagined as a JRPG

CollegeHumor’s Favorite Funny Videos

You know what David Simon's groundbreaking, five season exploration of drugs, money, corruption, politics, and po-lice needed? An 8-bit remake from the College Humor team. In this video, the five seasons of The Wire are broken down into five levels of McNulty drinkin, Bunk cussin', Omar comin', and Baltimore fallin' apart.

It's a pretty clever riff on the series (although season two is by no means skippable, just more of a traditional cop drama outside of the overall narrative of the rest of the series).
