Watch a Stop-Motion LEGO Version of ‘The Wire’


The Wire has already been dubbed the greatest TV drama of the past 25 years, so you might find it hard to believe that there’s something that could make David Simon’s beloved show even better. But there is: LEGOs. OK, so maybe this LEGO version of The Wire created by Austin-based filmmaker Joe Nicolosi isn’t exactly better, but it is extremely entertaining to watch a minifig version of Omar Little running wild through streets of inner city Baltimore Bricktamore. Drunken LEGO McNulty and LEGO Snoop and his tiny drill are also quite amusing. Or maybe we just really miss The Wire… Either way, a job well done.
