he was def my favorite coming out of season 1
You're absolutely right. It did a great job of showing the full circle. Amazing writing
I guess i need to watch more of the show to get a better understanding of what is going on. Only 3 episodes in doesn't really give a good bearing on the show overall.
Even he is a product of the streets. The stress of an officer in a city is high, shootings, violence etc led to his boozing etc..
Pic Sigs are for losers.
starts getting pretty good about where you are now
Good, like I already said, i will be getting the rest of the season with no interruption. Ima time it up so I can watch it everyday.
just finished with season 2 and i loved it as well - great series for sure
Thinking about getting netflix just to watch the wire. Havent seen the early seasons in a long time. Dont know season two much at all. Thats the season with the ship yard and the russians right?
Not guilty y'all got to feel me
if you have HBO just use HBO go
Never have seen the show before. Lots of people are recommending it. Will someone give me quick cliffs before I watch it. I really don't know what all to expect
looks like im gonna have to stop reading this thread.
Its a synopsis of Baltimore street life. The story is told through the perspective of both the Dealers and of the police. Also covers low level dealers to the upper level suppliers and how that chain works. There is a lot to the show, its a must watch.
Thank you for replying man. It sounds amazing. Can't wait to check it out!
i dont think they are showing it on Netflix yet but somebody else can tell you better than me
Just fork over the $ for the box set. You wont regret it and you WILL watch it again.
Im currently going throigh it again but this time with my wife who has never seen it. Been very hard to keep my mouth shut. Up to season 3 this time around
$50 bet with Rebels10 - Best of 3 Egg Bowls
**the $50 goes to others schools athletics dept**
my wife started watching some of it until the one scene ( one of my favorites so far ) where all they say is the F word - funny as hell
The truth is all of the characters had significant depth. It humanized all sides of the equation which is what made the show so special. They cut through stereotypes which is very difficult and it's something the writers, actors and producers deserve a lot of credit for it. The fact the show didn't win a single Emmy shows you just how fraudulent that award system is. I can't think of a show on TV which was more compelling. It is as if David Simon channeled Homer, Sophiclies and all of the Greek tragedy writers to perfection. It was also a show that didn't jump the shark. I can't think of a single show that didn't go one episode too much in the history of TV.
Man, money ain't got no owners, only spenders
Love the Wire, got my girl hooked on it now. This is my second time thru the series.
We on season 2 but every series is a must watch.

good to know as i am starting season 3 - really good series for sure
So I am re(for the nth time)-watching the wire and last night watched the season 2 ep where D gets killed. While watching the scene where D'Angelo is talking about the Great Gatsby i picked up on something. Now others probably got it quicker than I did but it is echoed a couple of times through the series.
It is obvious that at its most basic he is using the story as an allegory for himself. But it clicked that it connects to at least 2 other scenes. The first was the season 1 episode where D'Angelo takes Donette to the upscale restaurant. The second is when McNulty and Bunk enter Stringers apartment.
Like I said, people have probably caught it quicker than I. But the unparalleled writing like that make The Wire the best and why I can rewatch it so many times.
here are the scenes I cited
the Great Gatsby monologue:
Awesome scene from The Wire wherein D'Angelo talks about The Great Gatsby.
Deserve got nothing to do with it...
scene from Season One episode five of The Wire: D'Angelo and Donette have dinner at a fancy restaurant...
Bunk and McNulty get a look inside Stringer's apartment which leaves McNulty wondering who he had been chasing all this time. (Season 3, Episode 12 "Mission Accomplished")
never realized that , good get + 1
good stuff giant fan
