Yeah Marlo was an awesome character, pure evil. I love his last scene in the series. What a boss.

The only bad thing about season 5 is the fact it only consists of 10 episodes. With 3 more episodes, we could have deeper views into those journalists, and their story line would mean much more.

But great season anyway, I liked Marlo's ending, it just shows his street thirst. No way in hell he'll stay off the streets. He's just like Avon, he ain't no suit wearing businessman, he's a gangsta. He wants power, reputation, it means everything to him. He's the Mussolini, the Stalin of Baltimore.

And I'm glad Slim F'N Charles is basically the last man standing, he's too cool for dying. Too bad there's no season 6, Slim vs. Mike feud would make some great TV.

Stringer was an awesome character.

I don't know many people that liked Michael that much, but he ended up being one of my favourites.

I hated Carver & Bodie early on but I eventually came to respect Carver and Bodie became a favorite. Stringer just didn't interest me, I liked Avon & D though.

How can you not like Stringer? Dude was second in command to Avon and going to community college on the side. Definitely boss.

Stringer was as interesting a person to me as Kima.

Kima was a boring character for me. McNulty, Bunk and Freeman were the best cops on the show. Herc did provide some funny moments tho.

re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)

Frank and Nick Sobotka were great, a lot of the characters from season 2 are pretty overlooked, but it's probably because they only appeared in that season. I hated Ziggy at first, but when he snapped it was epic.

I think my favourite overall story arc was Bubbles though, I was so happy with the ending he got too, probably the only character who truly deserved a happy ending. That shot of him reading the article in the paper about himself and then putting the shades on and walking off was so great. What a dude.

Thats the point I was making. Stringer wasn't that interesting a person to me, he was just a dealer who was smart and wanted to be a legit business man. He didn't do anything that interesting to me until the second half of season 3 and well yeah we know how that turned out. Not saying he wasn't important because he was but hes not a character I look back at too fondly.

The Sobotka's were great, especially Frank.
