S5 of The Wire, final season.
Man some of these eps make me wish I was watching this while NT was making threads for it. This dude McNulty be having me laughing hard the way Bunk be reacting to his wild ****. Creating serial killers
Son was a step away from killing these homeless ppl himself. The way Bunk kept giving him and Lester ****
Then when the FBI profilers basically described McNulty like Lester said they would
Then this dude Omar. Son jumping outta window 5 or 6 flights up
Son limping everywhere jacking fools
Too many lulz. Should've stayed retired. He on this warpath and then got caught slipping hard. Aint even get his revenge.
Funny *** *****. Shame it had to be him. Simply seemed it was the end of the old guard.
Held it back but I gotta say I aint like this dude Marlo at all. **** that *****. I mean he kinda came off as a combo of String and Avon given he was smart but still hood enough to off ****** but he just rubbed me the wrong way the way he went about **** almost until the end. Then the way he just use ************* like that traitorous cur Cheese (real talk that ***** move on his own uncle, Prop Joe, a la D'Angelo almost made me dislike Method Man
, glad he died though).
Another dude I aint care for is Carcetti. I dunno, the way dudes still call him that in the GoT thread had me thinking he was gonna be entertaining. It goes without saying Littlefinger > Carcetti. Son always getting caught in the middle with his bull ****. I had thought he was for real but once his advisors start mentioning running for gov. in 2 years I realized he wasn't about **** either. I mean you either stick to your word and help the ppl or you look out for yourself. He kept getting caught in the middle and not accomplishing much because of it. Son was no better than the last mayor, fine with eating all that ****. From that angle it was pretty clear the point of that storytelling. You come in talking change and all that but end up beding over to the system and becoming another cog. Son never really semed mayoral after he got the job either. Never seemed settled.
The snitching continued in the show though. I mean damn Kima snitching on her own ppl ****** it all up for Lester and Jimmy. I was almost seeing light at the end of tunnel thinking that reporter would go to far and stage a homeless death or actually do it himself. Then there's the whole no consequences for dude
I aint like that **** at all.
At the end I was almost thinking McNulty was gonna become FBI with some help from his friend. One way to keep scratching that itch cuz honestly I see no hope for dude now that he aint police. When he was laying low doing good all of S4 you would think it was cases that made him the way he is and all the frustration of the bull **** chain of command but I think it's just him.
Props to Daniels. Thought he was gonna swallow all that ****.
@ Dukie, maybe he's the next Bubs.
if Sittner (sp?) becomes the next Jimmy McNulty, liked how they did a call back to like the 1st ep with that.
@ Michael becoming the next Omar. Wonder if he out the closet too
One thing I kept hearing about ppl defending S2 was that it tied back in to the end of this but it didn't the way I wanted to. Figured we'd see more Nick or something or maybe that one addict white girl would play in to it. Most importantly I wanted that non Greek ***** The Greek to fall. I was just waiting for them to stumble on that and they never did. Deadass let dude off the hook for real. Then Levy manipulates his way out of his charge and somehow Clay Davis does the same. Sheeeeeet (I gotta ask is this how Baltimore ****** say **** down there?
Cuz Davis wasn't the only one saying it like that
Overall I can rank the seasons like this:
S3 (cuz Stringer was my fav character)
S2/S5 (S2 is tied here cuz of guys like Ziggy and Nick. Plus I really didn't care for the journalists in S5. That was one group I was like **** them and the ripping off the Stephen Glass story)
Show was great and definitely ranks up there with my favs but I gotta say it's not among the undeniable best. Gotta ask though was the show canceled after 5 seasons or did the creators plan to naturally end it there?
