"The Attorney-General's kind remarks are noted and appreciated. I've spoken to Ed Burns and we are prepared to go to work on season six of The Wire if the Department of Justice is equally ready to reconsider and address its continuing prosecution of our misguided, destructive and dehumanising drug prohibition."
Holder really should not have opened the door on this one by demanding another season (or a movie) and hinting at his power when he also has equal power to end the entire basis for the show he called for. Indeed, that power is a far more important and sensible use of his office than to attempt to bully or shame someone into creating a TV show for his personal amusement.
