    The thing about David Simon and Tom Fontana's work is that things turn out to be much better than what they sound like on paper. It's in the reality and truth behind the writing. This will be awesome, I have no doubt about that. Between them, David Simon and Tom Fontana have been responsible for Homicide: Life on the Street, Oz, The Corner and The Wire. Its topic will probably get it noticed, and get Simon and Fontana some Emmys and their careers can go on to other incredibly awesome things.

    Thank God for men like these working in television, that is all I have to say.
