Just watched this again for the first time in ages.
Thanks very much for making me want to watch this again when I could be watching something new!
But the Wire will always be number one for me.
Really should remedy that
however this scene, brilliant.
Fuck, fuuuuuuuck. Fuck.
and this, 'British' McNulty
And (probably my favourite scene of the whole show)
When the penny drops....awesome.
that it really makes me wish they'd gone in a different direction with the show, just so that we could have seen more of those two together actually being friends and stuff rather than the semi-rivals they ended up as
From the docks is looking out at Baltimore and is all like ffs cause everything's ruined. Think it's like a season 5 montage.
Everything's ruined :(
there's one in the first season that's particularly great.
see, that's one of the many ways in which The Wire >>>>>>>>> all other TV series.
no other show would put that much love into little bit of exposition.
better than McNutty or Bunk, ever scene they do is priceless. When Bunk gets with that chick and they McNulty finds him like passe dout on the toilet with his cigar :'D
just thinking about that makes me grin.
loved the wire but can't really think of many individual scenes.
doesn't lend itself to cherry picking because, like, it's all cherries.
*all the scenes without brother mouzone
too cartoonish. the bit where he [spoiler redacted], though, just because [character] gets [thing that happens to character].
- when mcnulty does the outrageous sex scene, can't remember which
- when clay davis goes 'fffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuckkkkkkkkkkkkkk!' and it lasts ages
haha clay davis was amazing though
and they bust in and McNulty's going above and beyond the call of duty.
and two prostitutes, even better
playing a politician again. if he doesn't let out at least one "shiiiiiiiitttt" I'll be really sad.
"I can't wait to go to jail" and "contrapment."
I love how Bunk gradually breaks down Omar's bravado by pricking his pride, and does what none of the tooled-up, hard-ass drug crews can do - make him doubt himself. Also the bit where it looks like Bunk is about to sock him one like a parent at the end of their tether and ends up making him look like a naughty schoolboy.
