i mean obviously he's not supposed to be liked but that doesn't make it any less frustrating to be a fuck up and cause problems outside of his own little world due to his ineptitute. whereas carver you get the sense he actually truned into a good police officer, although not without fault. they certainly progressed and grew a lot over the seasons when you look at the initial episodes though it's kind of awesome how they changed (or kinda didn't as much in herc's case)

One of the best scenes ever is Cutty leaving the game.

'He was a man in his time'

'He a man today'.

Yeah, Avon fucking ruled.

Great great show.

So what do you guys think of Season 5?

Personally I enjoyed it, although they could have handled the newsroom a bit more realistically than the black/white approach they took. Other than that I thought the serial killer storyline was fine, I mean this was a universe with brother mouzone and omar being all ghetto robin hood/batman. Seemed to fit into it for me.

Still much weaker than season 3 and 4 though

There should be a Sopranos thread. Seems like more people have seen The Wire though. I'm fine with people calling it the best TV show though, I wouldn't ever argue against it even if I do slightly prefer Sopranos.

MARLO and SLIM CHARLES > everyone else

-----

You know what's fucking brilliant? Bodie died just like the chess pawn, killed by the knight (the L movement from behind). What a fantastic callback to the chess scene from Season 1.

-----

The Greek. Maurice Levy. Clay Davis. Clarence Royce. Ervin Burrell. Stan Valchek. Those guys are the true gangsters of The Wire.

Season 5 was awesome, IMO. Not as perfect as S3 and S4, but on par with S1 and S2. We got the continuation of Marlo's reign of terror, the Marlo vs. Omar full-blown war, McNulty sacrificing his career to get more money for overtimes, Carcetti going full shithead, etc. Not to mention a buckets of fucking amazing scenes (my name is my name; how my hair look Mike; Mike separating from his little bro, Chris fucking up Mike's father, Avon/Marlo meeting in the jail, etc. etc.). I didn't mind McNulty's storyline, it made sense, because it's fucking McNulty.

Breaking Bad, Mad Men and The Sopranos are all better then The Wire.

Those 3 shows have more interesting characters, are better paced, and have a far superior "troubled man" in their lead then the Wire does.

Not to say The Wires bad of course. D,Angelo screaming at Stringer "WHERE THE FUCK IS WALLACE!" was some extremely powerful television.

Breaking Bad is utterly awesome, I'm watching it right now actually (started season 5). Its one of the best shows of all time easily...but to be honest I don't get that 'feeling' I got when I was watching The Wire...I don't know how to describe it, it just lacks something that The Wire had to me.

Also The Wire has far more interesting characters IMO. Walter is a better lead for sure, although I personally don't really think there is an actual lead on The Wire, and Jessie is awesome. But besides maybe Hank, Gus and Mike, I don't think the rest of the cast is quite as interesting. Funny yes, but interesting not so much. Especially compared to The Wire which felt like every character, even the minor ones, had quite a bit of layers
