Even though this show ended 5 years ago, we still all go back and rewatch and talk about it all the time. I watched this show for the first time in august, and Ive already rewatched it, Im too hooked onto it. I love everything about the show, the writing, the characters, the realistic portrayal of urban life in America, etc.
So to start this thread off, what has been your favorite moment of the wire? I dunno if I can come up with a single scene, as there are so many of them. But this is one of my favorites:
This scene is a CLASSIC television scene, and its only in the third episode of the entire series. D'Angelo teaching two boys he works with in the Lowrises how to play chess and uses the drug game to explain what the pieces mean. Well-written and well acted scene by everyone involved.

heres another guy I love right here, Clay Davis, shady, conniving slimeball piece of shit but a total realist who sees the game is there to be played at every level, the guys such a hustler too, the scene where he bribes Carcetti just before the election "sheeeeeiiit, Im hungry enough to eat the horse you rode in on"
^^^^ season 4 was a masterpiece. that's not to say the other seasons weren't strong, but it really felt like the show reached it's peak there. cutty's story, bodie on his corner, the 4 children and how they went their seperate ways
actually reminds me of this
which is just devestating imo. herc is such a fucking idiot. ugh!
