    When McNulty is banging that chick from behind and they flash the spotlight on him and he flashes his badge then they drive away. Its was hilarious. The Eulogy of McNulty was also good.

    What was your guys favorite season. I'm just starting 3. Season 4 has basically the highest ratings of any TV show as far as I can see.

    Re: The Wire

    I love when Omar gets shot. So funny how one of the greatest person in the show gets shot by the most RANDOM person in the world or when Prez, Herc & Carver go to the towers at night and start to get bottles thrown at them.

    Gotta admit I had no idea it was coming. But that is probably the only way he could have gone out of the show.

    True. That pissed me off so much. I was pulling for that kid.

    Omar & Mouzone taking out Stringer
    was probably my favorite scene in the entire series.

    Omar was killed by Kennard. Remember Omar said most times his name was enough to scare people away, then when he was injured omar didnt look that scary to Kennard.

    That little fucker had the advantage of being about as inconspicuous as you can get. I'm sure somewhere in Omar's street code existed a clause where you don't pull guns on little kids.

    Great avatar. Can't wait until the new season starts. I'm currently half-way through Dearly Devoted Dexter - the 2nd book in the series - just as amazing as the show if you haven't read them.

    Yea It pissed me off too, but that was kinda the point to the whole street angle. There is always going to be another Avon, Marlo, Bubs, etc. There is always someone to take someones place. The more things change the more they stay the same kinda thing.

    I want to start watching the Wire and used this site...http://www.watchtvsitcoms.com/thewire.php...to begin. However after 72 minutes of watching you have to wait an hour to watch the next episode. Does anyone know a better site where I can watch more than one episode without having to wait. TIA.

    Re: The Wire

    what i did was, just build them up. i'd let one load, then wait until i could watch a new one, then load another one. once i had 5 or 6 loaded i would start watching. then keep repeating the loading and waiting while i was watching episodes.

    Re: The Wire

    I recommend for those who have seen the whole series they head over to the freakanomics blog on NYTimes and search for the wire. They had a series for I think just S5 where a guy would watch the show with a bunch of dealers and they would discuss it. It was a good read.

    Re: The Wire

    Just downloaded my first torrance to watch this TV show and fired through 4 shows tonight. I think I'm hooked. I can't believe I never watched it when it was first out. I am having a bit of a problem though. I am using isohunt.com to get the seasons, but I cant find a good torrance for season 2 right now. Any help?
