This YouTube video from August shows Dominic West — the British actor best known as McNulty from “The Wire” — telling journalist Marina Hyde that David Simon’s upcoming HBO project “Treme” (a show that I’ve been salivating over for months now) will be better than the best TV show ever made. Here’s what West says:
West: It’s, um, it’s even better than “The Wire.”
Hyde: Is it?
West: Yeah, it’s “The Wire” with music… It’s fantastic.
I don’t want to get my hopes up too high, so I don’t believe him for a second. Not even a little bit. Still, if you try to keep me from watching the premiere of “Treme” next year, I will cut open your belly and choke you with your own intestines.
