I feel cheated by HBO, the producers & writers of The Wire and every actor on the show. I was expecting more, I wanted more and I'm not ready for it to end.

Yes I was highly disapointed as well. The whole show didnt move at all. It was real slow and I almost fell asleep until cheeze got smoked and Mike jacked ol' dude. But then again I'm like how much could they really do since its the end.

OMG! The greatest finale in TV HISTORY!!! It makes me want to see another season. I'm trying to write about it, but I'm just so in awe, everything is just coming out in big, nonsensical blobs... Oh.My.GOD

lol... Clay Davis is my boy. I actually liked the finale, it showed in the end that nothing changes. Everybody worked hard to fix things but the same problems remain. The dope boys will be dope boys and the politicians will be themselves. Even Mr. Presbo had to try and help Dukie because that's what teachers do. like the saying goes, the players change but the game remains the same.

I started watching The Wire the 1st and 2nd season. Then I had the preminum channels including HBO taken off (a sista was struggling!) I now have all seasons expect 5 on DVD. I can't wait to sit down and watch all of them.

By the way, I wasn't dogging your city, I was dogging NYPD. LOL

I thought the finale fell short, as well, but was reminded that it pretty much stayed true to form. To echo what Homer said, one of my frat brothers made this astute observation:

After the first few seasons of the Wire many of us wished we could have seen how the main players got to be where they were. In another masterful piece of writing David Simon took younger characters and introduced them as the younger versions of the older crews:

Michael is a young Avon/Marlo
Randy is a young Stringer Bell
Dookie is a young Bubbles
Kenard is a young Wee Bay/Chris Partlow
Namond is a young Bunk
And even, in a twist at the end, Sydnor is a young McNulty


I think he meant Omar for Michael, but I can see the rest, no doubt.

Maybe they'll make a "The Wire" movie!!!

Oh, and you know what's crazy? I actually was able to watch the finale online before the show even came on HBO!! It was at http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/10/arts/television/10stan.html?em&ex=1205208000&en=51ac44484d6ec804&ei=5087%0A.

Oh, and Eb, I forgot to say ealier, our tongues were made to be together, LOL!!

yeah I feel you A-nupe.... they did repurpose on the characters as you mentioned above... the most evident was definitely mike and dookie... I hope they will do a Wire movie... would be interesting to see if Mike ever gets out of B-more... on the real I thought for sure they would show him packing his bags and getting the heck out of dodge... because even though marlo has to stay out of the game, that doesnt mean he still wont have the goons after mike for thinking he was the snitch and then killing snoop.

Eb, you didnt like the season finale?

Man, that was script writing at its finest. They had to bring everything full circle. And they did. That was just masterful scriptwriting. I swear it was.

Don March 10, 2008 at 2:11 PM

Thats bad about Dookie though.

Didn't Dookie remind you of Dave Chappelle's crackhead character?!
