Also, please no plot discussion as I'm still early on in the series. Ta.
Except I don't wanna mess around on the streets for ages. I'd just like to become a dective straight away please
The Bunk is my hero
a straight Omar.
You can't be a straight Omar.
He just is that good.
Hmm, which would I rather do; stand out on some cold fucking street corner explaining chess to retards or sitting on a cold fucking rooftop photographing them?
it's chess to retards though, right?
It's kinda been taken out of my hands as you can see. I reluctantly accept the mantle of Brother Mouzone: Badass.
But it's amazing viewing.
a lot of the wire cast are
he's also english, a bit like McNulty
there's hope for me yet
So that I get to find out what the phrase 'casual sex' actually means?
Following the one where his ex-missus misses a slice of the action
they seem to get drunk and screw around a lot. Also drug dealers seem to live in squalor and get shot a lot.
then Maurice Levy would be good.
has there been a recent tv series that has made you want to get your drink on as much as The Wire? Even if I'm hungover, I watch an episode and I immediately want to get drunk as shit again.
and yes, I started off watching that show with a cup of tea, now I have to have a bottle of some lager or another
is surely the only way.
Both the drug gangs and the police force are inept institutions where people are constantly getting dumped on from above.
That said, it would be good to be Cool Lester Smooth.
I've gone so far as to actually looking into it! Before realising being a copper in the UK would be fuck all like being police in the wire (as realised when flicking past the bill on ITV)
To be fair, I don't think The Bill is entirely representative of modern policing in the UK. Being a cop here is more like SWAT, but with Irishmen who actually sound Irish.
but this thread has reminded me I forgot to ask for The Wire boxset for xmas. Bah.
Get it. Cheap at half the price.
but i'd always rather be an insanely high up drug dealer than in the police
like at the beginning of Layer Cake.
but at the minute I want to be mcnulty...
looks like seems liek hte person most able to adapt to any situation..although I've onyl finished season one!
So far I'd be him over everyone else
