    and this,,

    should add that Wee Bey is doing life, no parole. Hard fact to overcome and a little incredible to try, don't you think. Here's the thing and I say it all the time and no one seems to believe it but the writers: To make a world credible and to make a story meaningful, the story must be pre-eminent, not the character. By that I mean, yes, Hassan is a wonderful actor and so is Idris, and so is Wood, and so is Chris Bauer and James Ransone and Larry Gilliard and Wallace, oh geez, don't even get me started on Wallace...and all of it doesn't mean anything to us whatsoever. We aren't interested in preserving characters or featuring them more because the audience wants it. Forgive me, but the audience is like a small child. If given what they wanted every day, it would be ice cream and cake and seven hours of daytime television. Because the audience of a television show, by and large, feels an allegiance to what came before on a serial drama, to the scenes and moments and characters that are familiar or that pleased them in the past. On Homicide, everyone seemed to want every episode to end with Detective Pembleton going into the interrogation room and winning a case by an act of intellectual prowess. But having told that story, neither Andre Braugher nor the writers wanted to beat it to death. A story told is a story over and so if you don't want to watch The Wire because anything familiar and pleasing is no longer available to you as a viewer in the amounts you desire, then okay, I understand. But you were never really watching The Wire then, in my opinion. That's not to convince you that you shouldn't like what you, or want what you want, or make your own choices as to what stories you wish to enjoy on television or in any other medium. But all of the angst over please don't kill Avon, please don't kill Stringer, please don't kill Omar, please don't kill Marlo, please don't let Kima die or let McNulty get even with Rawls or whatever -- what can I say? You can't petition this show on behalf of character. We don't care about character except to the extent that good characters serve a story well. Story is all.

    Damm...I like that mufuh!

    He's right too. A bunch of us were shocked when he didn't have Avon's whole crew bagged at the end of season 1, and that Stringer was still on the streets. Then you realized that the story was bigger than the characters, and since life ain't cut and dried the story aint either. So now, instead of looking forward to Omar getting Avon or McNutty getting Stringer every week, I look forward to seein whatever's goin to happen...can't predict shit and it's better that way! :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

    [My 2 pacos] I think when I watch a series such as this, I route for things to happen. Some characters, good or bad, I like, and some characters good or bad I don't like. If they whole show goes the way I route complete, then I lose respect for it because it's predictable. If the show goes no way I expect, then I lose respect because it's unrealistic. So a good series will hit that happy medium for me, e.g. some things will happen that I like and expect, some that don't like or don't respect. That's just the way I like it. [/My 2 pacos]

    And I think we can safely say that you like this show now Louis...even tho you may not have been sure from the beginning? if you don't like it after the latest episode I doubt you ever will.

    I have always liked it. But you have to admit there have been a few slooow shows. But yes, this was one of the best, if not THE best episode of the Wire I have ever seen. (Catch up Timmy!!!)

    And yeah, you're right, there have been some really sloooow episodes. But there is no other show that I look forward to every week or between seasons anywhere near as much as The Wire!

    After "Six Feet", and since the fact that "Oz" and "Sluts in the City" are off the air, "The Wire" would fall in line next, I guess. I've enjoyed it more each year. I would like to know what happen to Ziggy's cousin though. I assume he's in jail still.

    Ultimately, the one who really sold him out though was Avon. That was supposed to be his boy right. Sucks for the police department. They just got the wire up and running and now dude is dead. Great writing!

    Yup, the cops are gonna be PISSED!!! Now we have to see what Avon's next move will be. Without Stringer where's he gonna get his product? He's still got Marlo to contend with and he was never really down with the cartel. And even tho he gave up Stringer to Mouson, he was at war with Omar and peeps are gonna expect him to hit back at him.

    Shit, this last episode probably should really be 3 hours long. It's like the culminating episode for the first 3 seasons!

    Hell yes.

    It'll be interesting to see just how long McNulty will feel satisfied walking a beat.

    It'll also be interesting to see what happens now that Marlo is running things.

    It'll be interesting...can't wait for next season!

    I'm just glad that Avon got what he richly deserved. Plus he saw the warrant with Stringer's name on it! Sweeeeet! I think the guilt of letting his best friend get capped is really starting to eat at him. That plus Marlo showing up at his trial is better than him getting capped himself. Great writing on this show!
