Agree with all of this. The introduction of Marlo's crew, Cutty & Bunny Colvin made season 3 for me, the rest was kinda 'meh' in comparison I thought. Especially how Avon explictly told Stringer not to work with the Co-Op in season 2 and nothing came out of that. End of the season was a huge letdown too concidering everything it took to close that case.
Alright i'm done talking about The Wire in this thread now.
