The Wire: The GOAT Show Discussion Thread

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.

Re: The Wire: The GOAT Show Discussion Thread

that scene was fucking great. One of the reasons I love D'Angelo so much thusfar.

Re: The Wire: The GOAT Show Discussion Thread

greatest show ever, no question

be here all day posting scenes I love but the first that come to mind


I just love everything about this, the speech from a character who normally has to be a hardass, the brotherhood, the song, Bunk and Freeman getting their Pogues on


short and sweet but one of my fave scenes from the last season, the old boss and new boss, all the history between them but zero emotions, just about that money, the game is the game


gotta include a Stringer scene, I think the product meetings in this season kind of sum him up really, always trying to get people to think smart and see beyond the game but surrounded by dumbasses

Re: The Wire: The GOAT Show Discussion Thread

stringer got too greedy, but i love him. i love him and avon a whole lot more than marlo/chris/snoop.

ill put it this way, when avon was going after omar, i wanted him to get omar. but when marlo was going after omar, i was waiting for omar to shoot up marlo.

Re: The Wire: The GOAT Show Discussion Thread

Greatest show ever!

The hardware store scene with snoop buying the nail gun is pretty fucking epic.

The it's up my ass GUMP scene with kenard, Michael, and wee bay's son over the package was awesome.

Mcnultyin the whore house in season two was great.

There are so many but for me it has to be Omar on the witness stand and interacting with levy. I got the gun, you got the briefcase but hey it's all in the game, right?

Re: The Wire: The GOAT Show Discussion Thread



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"

he's like the Paul Heyman of The Wire
