    oh and you know the church dude who's helping cutty/dennis.. that melvin williams aka little melvin Melvin Williams had a dude working for him named "Chin" who took college business courses, developed the hop over the number keys phone system (see season 1) and ran a print shop as a front. Williams also had people named Barksdale and Bell working from him in Baltimore (circa late 70's to the mid 80's) the whole show was sort of based on that case..theres an interview with him in the wire book

    I think he suspects it. He knows that Omar was fed some bullshit by somebody.

    I certainly hope so. It would be cool if Mouzone confronts Omar at gunpoint and he tells him he is going after Stringer instead. I'd like to see both Barksdale and Stringer get capped. I want Omar to live.

    Maybe I'm coming from a street perspective... Stringer is real but I dig him don't get me wrong.. but regardless he's a street brotha... He didn't keep it real with the one who made him (Avon)... Cuz without AVON stringer wouldn't be where he is... The only reason why Stringer is there is cuz AVON drops bodies whether you wanna admit it or not....

    I don't know, could be the other way around. Maybe without Stringer Avon would only be some 2 bit thug.

    I think they both needed each other to be successful way back when--a brains and brawns thing. But the scariest thing for Avon is the game has really changed. His method of just bullying his way into the drug game is obsolete. They have turned into more of a cartel than a free market, due to the reduce channels of the available product. If he could just use his brain and listen to Stringer, they could really make some money, drug money and scrubbed "legit" money. But he is not willing to listen to him and that will be his downfall. Plus he let his personal feelings (his disdain for Monroe) get in the way of smart business. Never good. That's what makes the show real though. Every good criminal eventually gets tripped up by something.

    I think String and Avon probably grew up as best friends. Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing ALL of them get it, especially at the hands of Omar.

    Reasons why the Wire is not a "hit."

    1) Cast predominantly black. Predominantly white nation stereotypes it as "black show" and feels comfortable ignoring same.
    2) Requires thought and commitment to watch and absorb complex plotlines and subtleties. Television in America is by an large a vegetative medium.
    3) Filmed in Baltimore. Baltimore? What the fuck?
    4) Although supported by HBO and given creative license, first and second seasons had most episodes premiering at ten o'clock following Arliss or Sex in City -- shows that had very different appeal and audiences, I think. Third season premiers at nine, but alas, this fall NFL football and Desperate Housewives have the cultural zeitgeist surrounded.
    5) Not enough happy endings.
    6) I can't understand what the Negros are saying.
    7) What the hell is a D.N.R.?
    8) Not an Emmy nom to be found. Did I mention it was written and filmed and produced by people who don't live in New York or Los Angeles.

    Either all of the above or maybe we just aren't worth watching. That could be it as well. I can't blame HBO for anything, save, possibly, failing to get the DVDs out in advance of the third season and failing to get both seasons out there. That was, I think, an unfortunate mistake for a show as ornate as this one and I have said so to the folks involved. But as for scheduling, not everything can follow the Sopranos. They need to schedule year round, and frankly, something had to go up against the ESPN Sunday night game and Housewives. I will say, though, I don't think any HBO show short of the Sopranos would have suffered in that timeslot. But the bottom line: HBO didn't fight us to make our show more commercial, less smart or more lamely and weakly "accessible." They didn't ask us to whiten the show, or make it happier, or less angry or whatever. They have been brave. Moreso than any other network in the medium's long, lugubrious history. Cut them slack.
