Star struck

Got to shake the hand of genius on Wednesday night when I briefly met David Chase at the BFI after party and got to ask him a question I'd long wanted to ask about The Wire pertaining to an episode in season three. I'm met many famous people in my job but there are rare occasions when I come over all starstruck. Meeting Simon was one of them. Shaking Stephen King's hand was another. The pilot to season five was terrific stuff, with the role of media this season's additional layer to an already complex, dense show, but it left you wanting to see episodes two, three and more immediately. Such is the legacy of DVD box sets...
