Even in my current state of trying to save as much money as possible, I couldn't pass up Amazon's offering of The Wire: The Complete Series for a mere $82. That thing lists for $250, and even though Amazon normally sells it for $135, it's still one a hell of a deal.
Breckon, the Shack collective, and several others--yes Will, I'm mostly referring to you here--have been recommending The Wire for a long time, but I've never gotten around to watching anything more than the first episode. I guess that's gonna change here.
Also, glad to see I wasn't the only one that immediately thought Spore Hero was a Guitar Hero rip-off. Turns out it's more of a story-based Spore for Wii and DS. Neat?
