This is the official THE WIRE thread...

talk about all 3 seasons .... talk about Method Man's bad acting lol (he did good except for the grand jury part ... when he was trying to fake cry ..lol)

your favorite character : Mine is Stringer Bell (R.I.P.)

I wnana see how the show can survive without String ...

Avon is locked up but for how long ? sounds like it's gonna be at least 5 years...

Is Marlo the next big thing... What is Bodie and Slim Charles gonna do?




depending on how many ppl are interested in the thread... I'll add some more info on the wire... especialy the interviews with the producer.. .it's very insightful...

Yo, i love this show. Im from MD and its pretty much accurate. Did you know they usually film the East Baltimore, Avon's territory, in West Baltimore. My moms works in East Baltimore and she see's them filming all the time.

My favorite character gotta be Bodie yo, he looks like he's showing potential. But he seems like he might get killed off. And you're right, i dont know how they gonna carry on without String yo, String was that nigga for real. He knew how to carry the biz but he really fucked up killing Dee like that. I don't think Dee woulda talked if they just let him do his own damn thing. But whatever.

yea true .. but Avon would have killed Dee a long time ago if he wasnt his nephew... so wehn String told him the truth ... Avon realized that he did the shit for the better of the business...


anyway... Mcnulty is annoying...this dude was fixated on Stringer cuz stringer was smart... Mcnulty cant stand anybody smarter than him .. so he gotta prove that he's smarter than Stringer ... that;s what the whole case was all about..

but anyway .. i heard there was a real Crime lord in Baltimore called Stringer... there was another 1 called Black (that's marlo's nickname) .. and the producer actually said that in the 80's there was a Barksdale organization

but the funny thing is that i heard that the stringer cat is actually legit right now and owns an oil company... so maybe thats where they were going with it....Stringer was trying to go legit...

but the real mayor of Baltimore would never let THE WIRE tell a real story about how a real drug dealer became legit.... so maybe that's why they killed string...

When i said he fucked up, i meant for himself. It was definitely the right move, no doubt, but he shoulda known that Avon would eventually find out. The best thing to do was to just let him be and to just keep and eye on him. Avon was the one who fucked Dee over, but that argument i dont think can be won.

Man i cant wait to get that 3rd season dvd, i missed most of it cuz i was in Kuwait. Only got to see the last couple episodes.

iight no doubt... you'll have a better understanding of what I was saying once you watch season 3 ... but i would suggest you to stay away from this thread.. because you dont wnana know what happened in season 3 until you watch it ..

yeah it's my favorite show on television along with Sopranos....my favorite character would have to be Stringer Bell and Avon and McNulty, and Omar....though I also really liked The Sobotkas: Frank, Nick and Ziggy in the second season, and how slick were those greeks that season as well....Method Man has a cool roll in the show even if he's only on it now and then when Prop Joe gets brought into the storyline.....

i'm psyched about there being a fourth season.....i've read the creator of the show talk about how the show is about the role the educational system in baltimore plays on the youth, mainly about how school systems offer false hope to youth's future which is why so many get caught up in the drug game so young.....they havent been revealing much about the plot of the season, but I know that Marlo and his crew is around still and so is Cutty,,,,,the show will also feature new characters as it does every season and four of them will be four boys who are about 12-14 years old, and at a crossroads in life as far as getting involved in the drug game or not....the four are a group of friends and one of them is supposively the son of Wee-Bay from the other three seasons from the barksdale crew, who's been in jail since the crew first got busted at the end of the first season and who we always saw hanging with Avon while he was locked up until he got out in season 3.....Cutty is running his boxing shit with kids and trying to keep them out of the street life, and that conflicts with Marlo trying to get kids involved.....I'm assuming we will also see who won the election for mayor between the old guy, the white guy Carcetti and his buddy Gray from the town council and the aftermath of all that.....with I'm sure plenty more shit that's brand new since the show always has tons of new characters and plotlines each year....psyched for season 4....coming sometime in 2006.

and yeah it sucked to see stringer go, but even if he hadnt been killed he wouldve gone back to jail since they got him on the wire.....but i thought it was brilliant how that all played out, i mean stringer did fuck shit up for himself with omar and brother mouzone.....but avon gave him up very easily for them to find stringer....i thought it was genius how ultimately each of their downfalls was the result of one another, two who were once best friends, Avon went back to jail because Stringer gave him up to the cops and Stringer died cause Avon gave him up to Bowtie
