Having just finished Season 5, I must say...surely one of the greatest, if not the greatest, TV shows of all time. Just so many good characters, the writing, acting, story, dialogue...just so good

Anyway, this here be a thread for discussing all Wire-affiliated topics

The Bunk and Omar

I got about half way through the first season, but I couldn't get in to it, my dad says it's amazing too, but to me, it just seems like a longer, slightly more interesting episode of Law and Order with a lesbian.

What is this show about?


Its basically about the cops versus the drug dealers in Baltimore, but it goes into so much more than that, just calling it a cop show is kinda an insult...

I love The Wire. I was actually pretty upset when I finished the box set because I knew there'd be no more

Favourite season is probably 2.

Yeah man I finished the series last night and I'm sad too I'm contemplating watching it through again though already

My favourite season is probably...3. It was just epic. Season 2 is probably my next fav. though, I don't get why many people don't like it

Have you seen Generation Kill? Mini-series by David Simon, he did it after The Wire. It's also very good.
#15
I'm watching it at the moment, much love for Omar and Bunk, good god they are badass.
Best scene is in season one where Bunk and McNulty are at the old crime scene examining the kitchen and the only lines are "****" and mother****er" repeated over and over; brilliant!

EDIT: FOUND IT!

One of my favourite scenes. Classic

We're just onto S5 over here, and I must say, I like it. I've only seen S4 so far, but I don't feel too worried about that. The way the story develops just seems to drag me in.

Was I alone in having a smirk when the fat drugs officer gets busted at the end of S4?
Bunk's a genius character - his photocopier/lie detector trick was clever.

The funny thing which occurs to me about it, from a UK perspective at least, is that we probly don't know that much about Baltimore. (There's a Baltimore Road in Glenrothes, where the agency I work for is based. Fife Police's HQ is round the corner in...Detroit Road. It's a proper geographical headf**k!) The America we see in the media is largely LA, NY, Miami, Boston, SF, Woodstock, rednecks, The Klan, and the college system. So can anyone in Baltimore educate me a bit more about the place? Just out of interest.

I just read on Wikipedia that Obama's favourite TV show is The Wire and Omar is his favourite character

That was reason enough to vote him in

Only just noticed this thread, up to S5E2, although I've heard 5 is the worst season? Would probably go 4>3>1>2 so far, although it's all been pretty damn magnificent.

Snoop and Mistah Prezbo.

The first scene in S4 with Snoop at the hardware store talking to the assistant was hilarious, the look on his face was priceless Prez is awesome as a teacher too

This ignorant mother****er needs some education.

1) Law and Order doesn't have a gay guy who robs drug dealers whilst whistling "The Farmer in the Dell"
2) Law and Order doesn't have a series about school which is the same high quality as the other series, possibly better
3) Law and Order is **** >_>
FUCK YOU! GET PUMPED!

It simply is the best Drama made for TV ever. I don't think that's an overstatement, either.

I'm just into series 5 now, watching the late night showings on BBC2, and videoing ever episodes. (old skool, bitch). I really can't get enough of the show, oh, also, who else was so depressed by the end of series 4? My God, so bleak.

Poor Randy

One thing which was great about series 4 was the way it played with you and the kids. I hated Namond at first, and he seemed the most hopeless of them all. But to see what happened to him was actually so uplifting, and it was absolutely tragic how the lives of Randy, Dukie and Micheal have turned out. Dukie especially.

Oh yeah, Bodie.

I loved Bodie, even after what he did to Wallace

At least he had a final blaze of glory, went out like a man
