"Got to, this is America man." Oh, the story of Snot Boogie. Probably my favorite opening of any show.
Couldn't agree more.
"This kid, whose mama went to the trouble to christen him Omar Isaiah Betts... You know, he forgets his jacket, his nose starts running and some assh*le, instead of giving him a Kleenex, he calls him "Snot". So he's Snot forever. Doesn't seem fair."

My aunt and uncle stopped by today and were talking about shows they watch and get into on DVD and how they were recommended "The Wire" as it's been called "The Best" by all the people they talk to about it. I started mentioning that I have all the seasons and was going to offer to let them borrow it but then I kinda hushed up cuz I didn't want to give it out and then feel the need to re-watch the episodes soon.
Mailed katbur my season 1 & 2 discs Friday, so she can get in on this soon. :)I made it through episodes 1-5 last week. Will jump back in this week. Realized it had been awhile since I have done a rewatch. Loved seeing McNulty & Griggs partnership grow. Loved how much of a badass Bodie was & how innocent Wallace was. Loved how Lester stepped up & became 'real' police again. Loved watching the chess, mcnugget, & Bunk/McNulty detective work scenes again. And loved having Omar come in whistling Farmer in the Dell. I could go on & on.
September 2012: Karosko lends me season one. February 2013: Bonzai finally watches said season.
Finished it last night! I really like it, I just wish that I concentrated more on the show rather than multitasking. I realized that I missed so many snippets of the story line and have no idea what the names are for 2/3 of the characters. It took me til the second to last episode to figure out which one Avon is. For now on, I'm going to try to only watch when I can pay full attention.
(I'm using Wiki to help me with names for this) Love Greggs, D, Lester and Bubbles. Bunk is awesome. Crush on Ellis Carver for no other reason than I think he's cute. Don't care for his partner at all. I don't like Rhonda nor McNulty (though I was starting to warm up to McNulty by the end of the season) I don't really care about Prez, but I love the dynamics and how that he proved himself. The rest of the characters, I don't really have a strong opinion for or against right now. I know I'll love Omar, but I feel like he was too minor of a character in this season.
I only told Karosko last night that I'll be needing more seasons, so I guess I will be waiting a few days before starting season two...

Perk about being sick is there's nothing but time to watch The Wire. I want to see Omar start a NYC gang and then have them face off with Bodie and Poot after they've moved up. Should probably finish season 2 today.
Gotta ask have you all watched Homicide - Life on The Street? Same writer and the director of the Wire was a major character on it. We're on episode three of season one so I haven't read the whole thread. oh, and thanks Steph
