Ok, I caught Munch in The Wire, but ten series! Ten! That's too many to even comprehend.

Truly, Wikipedia is a valuable tool.

Oh dude, Golden Palace rules. There's one incredible episode in which Cheech is constructing the world's largest burrito. Then he and Don are talking about college and Cheech says [paraphraseed], "Yeah, I went to a school for poor kids. It was called Vietnam." Kind of an unexpected ultra left-wing joke.
