For a couple of episodes, of The Wire (one of the best TV shows ever made if you haven't watched it) that`s what the corner boys are calling it their product, and every time I see Pandemic, I hear the voice calling out:

Quote:
Pandemic! Got that Pandemic over here!


Am I alone in my auditory hallucinations?

Update: There is a terrible quality youtube clip that demonstrates what I am talking about:

It definitely is called Pandemic at some point in the series, using the name is not discussed but renaming the product, due to it's low quality, is.

Just get the DVD box set and watch no other TV ever. There really isn't much point in any other TV once you've watched The Wire

Just watching The Wire for the first time this last few weeks. I've just finished the 2nd season. It's pretty awesome alright. Still not seeing the "best show in the world" quality, although I do think that Season 2 was a major step up to Season 1. It's great, don't get me wrong, but I don't think it replaces my favourites just yet.

OT: Is this the right place to discuss The Wire?
We have a saying, "If it weren't for The Wire, Battlestar Galatica would be the best TV drama of all time.
