Miss 'The Wire'? Catch it here ... in Lego form

July 19, 2012 at 8:40 AM ET

"The Wire" was a critically-acclaimed HBO series that lasted for five seasons and, largely in hindsight, is considered the best show ever to air on television. Ever, ever. 

So, for those of you who missed the whole thing -- or just those of you who want to relive the profane-heavy antics of McNulty, Omar, Bunk, Freamon and many of the series' criminal boneheads, Yahoo!'s "Sketchy" series has taken care of all of that for you, with a 4-minute Lego recap of basically everything you need to know about the show. It's got a lot fewer curse words than the original (though it's not free of them) and the guns aren't real -- but who knew snap-together blocks could get so gritty?

As Omar says, "It's all in the game, bro. It's all in the game."
