It should be pretty obvious to any informed viewer that the Wire [on HBO] is the most Foucauldian show on television. Of course, there are some pretty cheesy reality shows which might enact some of the more paranoid visions inspired by Foucault’s work, but as a drama which undertakes an actual investigation of the problems he considered, especially in Surveiller et punir (S&p for convenience), The Wire makes a fascinating case study.
