If you didn’t have HBO in 1995 then you missed the finest piece of television ever produced. High on Crack Street followed some idiots as they hooked, got pregnant, had abortions, stole golf clubs and bought and smoked tremendous amounts of crack. The reason it occurred to me is that since one of the crack heads was Dickie Eklund who fought Sugar Ray Leonard and coulda been a contendah. Wait, if he fought Sugar Ray, I guess he WAS a contendah. Well, whatever. They are making a movie about him and Christian Bale is playing him.
So then – someone put 7 parts of the original show on Youtube. I am leaving the first one here, and the other six are after the jump. Honestly – it is frigging GOLD.
